Newsday is all over the little fiefdoms that get away with murder on the taxpayers dime. I missed this one yesterday when I posted about South Farmingdale Water District Commissioner Kurt Ludwig "South Farmingdale Water Commissioner Kurt Ludwig even charged his district $100 a day for attending a national water conference in Toronto with his wife for five days, including a day before the conference actually started.
Ludwig declined to be interviewed for this story."
Of course Ludwig declined to be interviewed. He just got re-elected after a huge push was made to get people to the polls by John Venditto and the N. Massapequa republicans. Ludwigs challenger Craig Heller made the local republicans pull out all the stops to save Ludwig.
Taxpayers must demand that Ludwig answer questions. Ludwig works for the taxpayers and a "no comment" is not sufficient. In the real world, when your boss asks you about your job performance, and you say you don't want to talk about it, you get fired.
Ludwig needs to be fired.
