The town board meeting of March 20, 2012 demonstrated that Aileen Rohr isn't fond of engaging in dialogue with her constituents and reminds them of such. She also likes to use the phrasing of 'indulging' residents enough when she tires of the comments or goes over the three minute allotment. If we are not mistaken, didn't the previous supervisor, Thomas Martino did engage in dialogue with the residents when they asked a direct question to them? Perhaps Aileen Rohr is avoiding engaging in dialogue because she DOESN'T know the answer to the question.

However, we must address a topic that Aileen Rohr was rather vocal about: FOIL requests. She indicated that the Town Hall had received numerus FOIL requests from one individual which took up a large amount of time and that the town board members were already involved in the research process. This statement can be interpreted that Aileen Rohr is discouraging the people from obtaining information that they HAVE A RIGHT to know by singling out individuals in public meetings. By doing this, Aileen Rohr is the  hindering unalienable rights.

This is what the writers at the HV News Lies have to say to Aileen Rohr:
Aileen's Issue: It takes up too much of our time...well deal with it Aileen. YOU were elected to do a job. You talked about 'open government' and 'transparency' when you were running for office. Talk about a fraud and phony. We have news for you.   Making sure that FOIL request are fulfilled according to the law just happens to be one of them. If you don't like it, then you shouldn't have run. You don't want to ensure that they are fulfilled? Well then how about you resign.

*It also appears that the individual that she is singling out happens to be more knowledgable of traffic regulations that Aileen Rohr and the town attorney is, quite contrary to Aileen Rohr comments.

*We should note that her friend, Joanne Lown also kept the Town Clerk rather busy with her FOIL requests in the past year.

Perhaps Aileen should read the FOIL that is availble in the NYS website

The people's right to know the process of governmental decision-making      and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations      is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted      by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature  therefore declares that government is the public's business and that   the
public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press,  should have access to the records of government in accordance with the    provisions of this article.
