Ferry Litigation Update
In what appears to be an overwhelming taxpayer revolt, Sea Cliff residents are flocking to the doors of the Sea Cliff Taxpayers' Association to demonstrate their opposition to the financing of the ferry litigation by Sea Cliff's officials. Sea Cliff Taxpayers Association, (SCTA), President Joseph E. Reilly, Jr. said in response to a community wide mailing, "Frankly, I am shocked at the incredible response we have received from residents of this community. The sentiment opposed to the lawsuit Sea Cliff has brought against Glen Cove is running greater than 95 percent. While I expected a majority to be against the use of taxpayer money to finance this litigation, I never imagined the opposition to be nearly universal," Reilly said. "If Mayor Moyne and her trustees are not getting the message, this community is in very serious trouble indeed."
