We can be proud of Rockland’s government again, but it will take energetic leadership and independence from business as usual politics.
Rockland County’s government has lost its way. Record deficits, the worst bond rating in the state, a 30% property tax increase and a new monthly energy tax—just in the past year. It’s time to end the bloated budgets, fuzzy math and outrageous tax hikes.
Mayor Lacorte is a proven executive. As Suffern’s Mayor, he passed a budget below Governor Cuomo’s property tax cap, cut the full time payroll and reduced debt service costs.
Mayor Lacorte’s steady leadership has made Suffern’s government work harder and smarter. Mayor Lacorte preserved essential village services during tough times, expanding recreation for seniors and securing a new playground at no cost to property taxpayers.
Mayor Lacorte believes Rockland needs to enact Governor Cuomo’s property tax cap, reduce the number of county departments, boards and commissions by 25% and eliminate budget earmarks.
