She notes on her web site that she is a conservative. Oxford Dictionary defines conservative as, a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics. Humm humm, does anyone see a conflict of thought in her campaign message when reading that?
Is she truly a conservative or does she say that to sway voters? It seems she wants to spend more of your taxes frivolously. Sometime in the early 1990's, the Richfield Town Board established a salary for Town Supervisors and it has not changed since then. The Richfield Village Board continued to keep the same salary for Richfield Trustees in 2007. The same salary continues currently for trustees in Richfield. They receive a total salary package of approximately $5,060.
If two more trustees were added to the Richfield Board the cost for salaries would be an increase of approximately $10,120.00. Where might you like to see that money spent rather than on two additional board members? Perhaps local roads, the baseball fields, additional money for the Richfield Historical Society, whose goal is to preserve the Messer/Mayer Mill in Richfield's Historical Park.
She also is quoted in the same article, “There’s a need for more transparency by this board,” Zoulek said. “I have questions about how money is spent and on road work.”
Has she checked the village web site? The budget is there and very transparent. Has she ever attended a budget meeting during the 12 years she lived in Richfield? If she had she would have learned how your taxes are spent?
If she was considering to be a candidate for trustee why did she not at least attend the 2015 budget meeting in the fall of 2014? So easy to complain but not do your homework.
Too many of her comments ring of other elections when there were candidates supported by the Highway J and RCRG activist groups.
Here are a few more of her comments in the same Daily News article, “I think there’s too much of the ‘good old boy’ mentality. Some have been on the board too long,” Zoulek said. "Expanding would represent everyone in the village.”
How does 2 more people represent everyone? To do that you might need to have all residents on the board.
Since Richfield has $0.00 debt it seems the "Good Old Boys" are making good decisions for Richfield residents. Oh, forgot women have frequently been on the board since 1997.
The Village of Richfield does not need a 7 member board!
