The Hamburg Boars of Education finally approved the Alternate Veterans' Tax Exemption that will kick in for our brave men and women in 2016-17. Thank you VETS for your service to our great nation. It is vexing that the Hamburg School District has taken three years to finally arrive at a decision to provide our Vets with small relief from sky rocketing school taxes. Most bizarre is that some of the Boars actually criticized the State of New York for making it their job to set the level of exemption. Yes, Boars, you might have to do something while on the school board, other than do shady things out of the public's eye. ( Didn't Danny tell you this when he bought your seat for you? Perhaps you should've just called Dan, and asked him what to do. He never spent a single day in the Unites States Military*)
It is down right humorous that some of the Boars spoke about the shifting of tax burden to non-veterans, by providing the Vets a small relief. Not one of the members of the Hamburg School Board, nor any of the over paid, under worked administrators spent one single day in then United States Military. Shame on you for making such thankless remarks. Are the Boars concerned hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars being filtered to Hodgson Russ Law Firm?
The tax relief given to the our brave men and women would likely not amount to more than one month of the District's legal bills.
