THE HYPOCRITIC OATH OF OTIS Last weekend my mother received a senior citizen targeted “Otis for Assembly” campaign flyer which is headlined with the following: "Steve Otis is a strong advocate for senior citizens." "As Mayor of Rye, Steve Otis consistently fought to meet the needs of seniors." Clearly some dishonesty is worse than others – some cruelties more vicious than others - some flights from accountability more desperate than others - and in the persona of Steve Otis of Rye - we have an example of all of these and more. What Steve Otis did to Rye senior citizen Bob Schubert and the Wetland Laws of Rye wasn’t a mistake, or an error, or an oversight, or a misunderstanding, or an accident. The hundreds of thousands of dollars Schubert was forced to spend out of his own pocket gathering evidence of this (through court ordered subpoenas and participant testimony under oath) has produced multiple appalling tangible examples of pure governmental malfeasance and criminality. "Rye City to Schubert – in their own words." (8 minutes.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV1I1MSIfUk

Some day very soon – after city residents learn all about how predatory municipal legal tactics work in the new Rye Golf Club scandal – we will bring Rye residents back to how a brilliant decorated World War II veteran was persecuted, smeared and ultimately sent to an early grave with the full support of Steve Otis. "Rye Attorney Kevin Plunkett tirade at Rye citizen." (1 minute, 30 sec.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JXoSway7uo&feature=related Mr. Otis certainly had a chance to make all this right – to let the documented truth - now marshaled in cardboard boxes on Milton Point (and in local newspaper editors email files) – to come out. Steve Otis did the opposite and continues to deny his culpability and responsibility to this day. Unlike Bob Schubert, some of us, growing in number, are still among the living and are thus even more determined to set this record straight and expose the craven special interests Mr. Otis pandered to that made the fiasco possible. If this makes the guilty among us mad, or nervous, so be it. Senior’s aren’t stupid. Steve Otis has an awful painfully public record of abusing seniors who turn to him in their hour of need for the help they deserve.

One look at the way Steve Otis treated Bob Schubert (A decorated 89 year old WWII veteran and the choice is clear. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-dF7HOFspA In the below linked video Steve Otis allows the City attorney to attack Mr. Schubert. Is this how we want our citizens treated? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JXoSway7uo&feature=related And here is one more example why Steve Otis is not a good choice for any leadership position. The reason for the firing, according to the council, was Shews, failure to communicate with the council and the mayor on projects. But many who have followed the Otis /Schubert wetlands garden mess, as well as the other Otis environmental missteps (e.g. Hen Island), believe otherwise. Shew's highly questionable decision which may have been vetted by Otis to sic the Westchester County Department of Mental Health on Schubert is more likely the real cause for his being deep-sixed. Shew was Otis's scapegoat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIBsLsvJQWE
