For Immediate Release
Libertarians Launch Petition Calling for County Supervisors to Terminate County Administrator Spencer Hellwig and Co Conspirators.
Libertarian Party of Saratoga County seeks to deliver 1000 signatures by Oct 1st.
Ballston Spa— For Immediate Release — Today, the Libertarian Party of Saratoga County announced that is has launched a petition calling on the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors to terminate County Administrator Spencer Hellwig, Director of Human Resources Marcy McNamara and County Attorney Stephen Dorsey. The political party hopes to deliver 1000 signatures from county residents to the board by October 1st.
“Residents around the county are outraged by the blatant corruption and coverup stemming from the pay raise scandal by Saratoga County Leaders;” said Rob Arrigo Chairman of the Saratoga County Libertarian Party. “A mess this big cannot be swept under the rug. The Board of Supervisors must act to restore faith in our county government,” said Arrigo.
An external investigation into the County’s decision to hand out 50% pay raises to essential employees, management staff and elected officials, revealed that County Administrator Hellwig, HR Director McNamara and County Attorney Dorsey lied to the Board of Supervisors, unlawfully raised pay, potentially opened the county up for legal liability and worked to cover up their misdeeds.
The petition, titled “Hold Them Accountable,” can be found on their website: http://www.lpnysaratoga.org/petition-detail?petitionId=1003
