I will believe this when I see it.  Harder's ego is to BIG to retire!!  Though I do think Akshar would make a better Sheriff than a Senator.

Harder retiring would be a great thing....he was past his expiration date before he ran the first time. Ashkar? Really?  This whole "elected" Sheriff thing should have gone out of style when the west was won. Time for a Sheriff to do a Sheriff's required duties, and hire a police professional to run a county police agency. Get rid of highly redundant and expensive village police forces. Do we really need a couple of police chiefs 4 miles from each other?  Nope.....it will happen eventually...the rest of the parts of the country that are progressive made these changes years or decades ago.

I agree with you.  We do need a County wide police agency!  Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

Thank you Gordon.  I guess the point is, aside from the economics of it, that we have not seen a truly qualified Sheriff for as long as I can remember. We had "Toys For Tots" Tony Ruffo, who was interesting, but a buffoon.....Geno DeAngelo. who was relegated to the Training Academy (you and I both know what that meant back in the day), and Harder, who is not well-informed, is hugely egotistical, and stubborn as a mule.

This job requires more then that. It's a big operation, and requires a professional with vetted credentials, as opposed to who is better at shaking hands and kissing babies for votes.

Not to mention who the Undersheriff's were too!

That is just it, Broome County has NOT made any progressive changes.  Broome County has been nothing more that re-active than pro-active to any of it's problems.

Not to mention the current undersheriff (retired from the state troopers) has a pension of $113,329 and an undersheriff salary of $78,257 with a total of $191,496.  Talk about complete double dipping.  I'm sure he also gets a car that he drives to and from home.  The upper management needs to change there.

There are numerous people there in management that get County cars to drive back and forth to work and where ever.  I bet none of them claim that perk as "earned income" on their taxes! Talk about double dipping!!!!

Re-read...I said "country", not "county". I had to look at it twice too ;)

Been in Virginia for a while now, and both police and fire/EMS services are SO much more efficient. Most everything is done on a county level....the volunteers and paid are highly integrated into a county system....fewer chiefs pissing in their corners, more Indians, lower taxes by FAR.

Taxes where we are, in a county of 16.000 population, are 1/2 what they were in NY State, while the house assessment is triple and the property is 14X in size.

Loved growing up in Bingotown.

/sigh

Somewhere along the line, someone with an axe to grind applied the term "double dipping" to this scenario. It's an intentionally misleading term intended to evoke negative emotions. And it works.

A much more accurate term would be "double earning." A person who is drawing a pension is drawing upon an earned employment benefit that has been deferred. And a person who is receiving a salary is getting paid earnings from their work.

When you use the term "double dipping," you are essentially promoting the idea that a person should not be paid the money they have earned and/or are currently earning. Basically, you are advocating for penalizing people for saving money via deferred compensation.

Surely you don't really support taking away money people have earned, do you? Surely you don't think it's a good idea to penalize people for saving for their future?
