STATEMENT BY MONTICELLO VILLAGE TRUSTEE CARMEN RUE
Never in Monticello's 200-year history have members of the municipality's legislative body been so restricted or had their powers curtailed as Village Manager John Barbarite seeks to do with this measure. Singling particular Trustees for exclusion from Village Hall, or requiring that Trustees only obtain information about Village expenditures and projects through him is immoral, unethical, and unlawful.

As I have said, the chain of events leading to the arrest of the Mayor of Monticello and his girlfriend for multiple felonies and misdemeanors was a sad day for them and for the Village of Monticello. Mayor Jenkins, like anyone with a pending charge, must be presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, as the Mayor, Mr. Jenkins is the symbolic figurehead who represents the community and is a role-model to the community's youth - our future. This is sad indeed.

Contests continued through September 17th, at the Ted Stroebele Recreation Center in Monticello.
