The village of Blasdell unanimously accepted the resignation of mayor Ernest Jewitt. Apparently, Jewitt wasn't doing enough to rip off motorists and haul them off to traffic court in the one mile wide village:
In recent months, Deputy Mayor Bob Warner has presided over the board meetings. In addition, most resolutions requiring authorization by the mayor have been approved by the board with a sidebar allowing the deputy mayor to act in the mayor’s absence.
If elected, Warner's top priorities might include, education, lowering taxes, and the continued fleecing of anyone attempting to drive through the village.
