Consider this, and the logic of it all. If you are an Independent, you follow your party line and vote for Jason Mehler. If you are a Republican, you vote for Mehler rather than Kristin Bucci, a registered Democrat (lovely woman, but what she is doing on that Rye Dis-United ticket is beyond me). Lastly, if you are a Democrat, you vote for Mehler as their third candidate. I firmly believe in and support Jason Mehler. A vote for Jason Mehler is a vote for VALUES. On November 5, values will win and I hope the whole City of Rye listens.
Rye Golf Club Affair i. As Deputy Mayor and Councilman, Jovanovich is responsible for making sure that City Manager Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves. ii. On June 14, 2010, auditors from the firm of O'Connor Davies Muns Dobbins presented a live report to the Rye City Council where, Jean Gribbins, the newly hired City Comptroller at the time, recommended that the auditors "take a deeper look" at the operations of one department in particular - Rye Golf Club; Jovanovich sat on the Audit Committee and, therefore, was already familiar with, and had a dialogue regarding, the meeting. iii. On September 12, 2012, in a meeting of the Rye Golf Club Commission, it was revealed that the general manager of Rye Golf Club, Scott Yandrasevich, had a financial relationship with a staffing company that has billed the club over $2.2 million dollars in the last 18 months alone, unchecked by Pickup. iv. Manhattan law firm Brune & Richard LLP, determined that "Mr. Yandrasevich controlled a staffing company that, over a six-year period, was used to steal many hundreds of thousands of dollars from the City of Rye.” v. Pickup, told club-goers that Yandrasevich had no conflict of interest, that everything was above board, and that the city attorney had previously vetted the situation herself and found nothing wrong; the claim was publically contradicted by the city attorney. vi. That same Brune & Richard report documented that Pickup, misled the public on Sept 27, 2012, when he – twice – said Rye's corporation counsel had reviewed Mr. Yandrasevich's relationship with the staffing company. vii. Where Jovanovich failed in his responsibilities for making sure Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves, Jovanovich negligently breaches his duty of reasonable care.

I have written that a vote for Jason Mehler for City Council is a vote for values and responsibility. A vote for Peter Jovanovich is a vote for valueless and irresponsibility and HIS RECORD SHOWS IT...

Andrew Dapolite Affair iii. On or about March 5, 2013, Scott D. Pickup, City Manager in Rye, New York (“Pickup”) portrayed to the city council, on camera, that “he (Pickup) didn't have the ability to film a controversial Fire Department workshop meeting because he didn't have the staff available,” or words to that effect. iv. Dapolite, one of the members of a two member department, was in the control room at City Hall on the night of February 9, 2013, and did record the meeting, contrary to the false claims of Pickup. v. Defendant Jovanovich has refused to listen to these tapes; Jovanovich has instead chastised Dapolite for making the recordings. vi. Where Jovanovich refuses to listen to the tapes, chastises Dapolite for making the recordings, in diametric opposition to the provisions in the Rye City Charter, failed in his responsibilities for making sure Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves, Jovanovich negligently breaches his duty of reasonable care.

...and he doesn't cheat much like the Jovanovich and Killian campaigns.
Reiterating my endorsement of Jason Mehler: He has no agenda of his own and is not beholden to County government, he can't be bought in fact he runs his campaign without contributions which he refuses to accept when offered, and he bows to no God but his own. A vote for Jason Mehler is a vote for VALUES. On November 5, values will win and I hope the whole City of Rye listens.
Well Average, you have almost already won. In case you haven't heard, Judge Katherine Forrest, ordered the pleading be changed to a civil complaint (a lawsuit) and an Order to Show Cause...drafted and finalized but the Committee is in no hurry to file giving Jovanovich and Thomas yet ANOTHER chance to fly the coop rather than playing their dangerous game of chicken...;)
They're kidding, right? $25,000 in consulting fees for a restaurant operator and a GM search when I handed them Troon Prive' AND KemperSports who would do that for free!!! Who has a count for how much in "consulting fees" this Council has blown in, say the last 4 years??? If they don't have the expertise to come to an assessment on their own, maybe they should all step down.
SPI is the County's version of Rye Golf Club at the local level, trust me. Same old playbook by the same old players; who is going to staff it, RM Staffing Co.?
Average, We simply MUST stop meeting like this! So, in the meantime, please refresh my memory on what we are betting on that you are so convinced I am going to lose...:)...I know, I know I really don't have short term memory loss issues, I just have a lot going on at the moment.
ticks, Tedc? I, as the rest of Rye, find him utterly revolting but I'd love to sit at a poker table with him; it's how I worked my way through college!...;)
It is a game of chicken played by the team of Jovanovich and Thomas: Count One: Violation of Campaign Advocacy laws Count Two: Negligence Count Three: Breach of Fiduciary Duties. I haven't mentioned the penalties for Count One in a while: All FECA violations...felonies subject to imprisonment for five years and fines imposed ($250,000 for each offense by an individual and up to $500,000 for each offense by an organization). 2 U.S.C. § 437g(d)(1)(A)(i). Whelp, there goes Thomas's take from this BLATANTLY ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN conducted in this cesspool they have created in Rye, N.Y. Wake up, voters, you just have had a Federal Judge order the Committee for Election Equality to re-plead its claims as a civil complaint. Negative commenting? In this case it is FACT. A vote for Jovanovich is a vote for the continuity of the French-Otis Administrations, and you all know what happened there. Even the good Judge Joseph Latwin has emailed to assess the situation of this BLATANTLY ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN conducted by Jovanovich and Thomas!!!!!
Folks, Election Day -14 days, it is crunch or get crunched time. Unfortunately, all is fair in love, war, and politics.
Attics included in F.A.R.? Seems a lot over-reaching for unfinished or finished storage to me. Nyet!
...and the answer is: DON'T SUPPORT CHEATERS, it is just not the Sagittarian way. Look at the sad, sad state of affairs these past 4 years: a sitting elected Mayor CHEATING on his tax exemptions; a 20 something CHEATED out of his job and thrown under the bus; a full 1/3 of the population CHEATED out of inflated member dues and waiters tips at Rye Golf Club; need I go on? Sure, let him CHEAT and run, let him win, vote for him in fact. When he does, if he does, and this sad, sad state proliferates, don't come crying to me. Bye, bye. Average we have not pinned down the location for that Espresso you will be buying me.

Election Day minus 19: Peter Jovanovich, Matt Thomas, and Julie Killian continue their unlawful campaigns consisting of conflicts of interest and appearances of improprieties than run so wide and so deep that they tear at the very fabric of what has come to be known as election equality in this country and in the fact that it pertain to civil rights, tears at the very fabric of the Constitution of the United States. From this day forward from Ridge Street to Greenhaven and from North Street to the L.I. Sound let this be known as The Greatest Rip-Off of Rye Voters Ever Told.

Another of Peter Jovanovich's legacy, an ATTACK on a son of Rye; what if he were YOUR son??? Andrew Dapolite Affair iii. On or about March 5, 2013, Scott D.

Tedc, this is Peter Jovanovich's RGC legacy, THIS, and there's not a damn thing Matt (in over his head) Thomas can do about it: Rye Golf Club Affair vii. As Deputy Mayor and Councilman, Jovanovich is responsible for making sure that City Manager Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves. viii. On June 14, 2010, auditors from the firm of O'Connor Davies Muns Dobbins presented a live report to the Rye City Council where, Jean Gribbins, the newly hired City Comptroller at the time, recommended that the auditors "take a deeper look" at the operations of one department in particular - Rye Golf Club; Jovanovich sat on the Audit Committee and, therefore, was already familiar with, and had a dialogue regarding, the meeting. ix. On September 12, 2012, in a meeting of the Rye Golf Club Commission, it was revealed that the general manager of Rye Golf Club, Scott Yandrasevich, had a financial relationship with a staffing company that has billed the club over $2.2 million dollars in the last 18 months alone, unchecked by Pickup. x. Manhattan law firm Brune & Richard LLP, determined that "Mr. Yandrasevich controlled a staffing company that, over a six-year period, was used to steal many hundreds of thousands of dollars from the City of Rye.” xi. Pickup, told club-goers that Yandrasevich had no conflict of interest, that everything was above board, and that the city attorney had previously vetted the situation herself and found nothing wrong; the claim was publically contradicted by the city attorney. xii. That same Brune & Richard report documented that Pickup, misled the public on Sept 27, 2012, when he – twice – said Rye's corporation counsel had reviewed Mr. Yandrasevich's relationship with the staffing company. xiii. Where Jovanovich failed in his responsibilities for making sure Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves, Jovanovich negligently breaches his duty of reasonable care. c. Factual causation. i. It must be shown that the particular acts or omissions were the cause of the loss or damage sustained. ii. The causation between Jovanovich’s breach of duty and the harm that results to Rye Golf Club members increases the risk of harm, then the breaching party is liable in suit. iii. At the September 12, 2012 meeting at Rye Golf Club an alleged staffing company that has billed the club over $2.2 million dollars in the last 18 months alone, went unchecked by Pickup. iv. Where Jovanovich failed in his responsibilities for making sure Pickup faithfully upholds, and follows, the law on residents’ behalves, this instance provides the factual causation of the harm Jovanovich caused to occur. d. Legal causation. i. Jovanovich foresaw deficiencies at Rye Golf Club by the June 14, 2010, auditors’ report to the Rye City Council; Jovanovich sat on the Audit Committee. ii. Seeing deficiencies at Rye Golf Club, Jovanovich had a duty to take care to avoid it. iii. Where Jovanovich failed in his responsibilities to prevent the exploitation of deficiencies at Rye Golf Club, this instance provides the legal causation of the harm Jovanovich caused to occur. e. Damages. i. Damages place a monetary value on the harm done by Jovanovich. ii. For most purposes connected with the quantification of damages, the degree of culpability in the breach of the duty of care is irrelevant. iii. Once the breach of the duty is established, the only requirement is to compensate the victims of the Rye Golf Club affair. iv. Where Jovanovich failed in his responsibilities to prevent the exploitation of deficiencies at Rye Golf Club, this instance provides for the recovery of damages or equitable relief by Plaintiff; in this action, subject to any amended complaint as of right, Plaintiff prays for equitable relief.

lol...you think I read that garbage, Tedc??? It goes right from my mailbox to a recycling bin. We all know what went down at RGC...keep spending your money Mr. Jovanovich, just keep some aside in case you have to pay a nice $25k retainer. As for Mr. Thomas, I would remove yourself from this scene before you get neck deep in it; you are an accomplice, you aid, and you abet Jovanovich's unlawful candidacy...get the "picture????"...;)

Peter Jovanovich MUST REMOVE HIMSELF from his unlawful candidacy immediately and take his Rye Brook Campaign Manager with him. Draft Civil Complaint and Emergency Order to Show Cause available for a limited time only at http://www.iviewitholdings.com/home/News

From the below analysis of the draft Complaint (lawsuit), and the Sack "Empty Chair Debate" video, it should be clear to the Rye City voters that Jovanovich and The Rye Record portray themselves, and have for many years portrayed themselves, as unrepentant, recidivist, incestuoans while Jovanovich holds public office and now seeks further public office which the Court must finally stop. The Southern District of New York will soon have the opportunity to speak. The Committee for Election Equality will applaud them for finding Jovanovich's and The Rye Record's behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that CHEATING ISN'T RIGHT!. Between now and November 5, VALUES WILL WIN AND WE HOPE THE WHOLE CITY OF RYE LISTENS!!!

Permanently enjoining The Rye Record from violating FECA in their affiliation with Jovanovich; e. Granting such other and further relief as to the Court seems just and proper.
