42. Yes, totally agree

What kind of irks me is people saying he has done so much for this area, and yet when you press them on it, they really don't mention anything other than EIT, the NYSEG stadium scoreboard, the BCC ice rink, and some things for SUNY Binghamton.

The EIT deal stunk to high heaven. Matthews has made out incredible well by buying a company that was receiving all kind of state money while he and his cronies were running it into the ground. After it went bankrupt, Matthews conveniently bought it for pennies on the dollar. All of the other things he's "done" are table scraps that even the most incompetent legislator could have gotten for us.

People around us can't understand why we pay such high property taxes, but don't realize just how much of Broome County's properties are off the tax rolls due to the Libous/BCIDA people handing out big tax breaks to their politically connected friends. The rest of us are forced to subsidize this by paying higher property taxes.

The big thing now is watching the rest of the cockroaches scurry to take Libous's place. My guess is it will be Clifford Crouch who is in good graces with the gas companies.
