The appointed County Comptroller could be saving Erie County taxpayers $1 million dollars annually by borrowing from the Control Board. Instead, he borrowed from the County.
Challenger Stefan Mychajliw stepped over the lifeless body of Joel Giambra, near the alley at the foot of the Rath Building and made this announcement. Phone calls to David Shank, the current Comptroller, from WIVB were not returned. His spokesperson said he was watching reruns of the Golden Girls and could not be bothered..
"Erie County right now has an A rating, according to Fitch, to borrow,"
Mychajliw said. "The Control Board has an AA+ rating so it really makes
no sense whatsoever for our unelected, appointed comptroller to let the
county borrow at an additional cost of $1 million."
