Hastings on Hudson would be far, far, better off directing their energies toward ousting Mayor Peter Swiderski, then immunizing deer. Swiderski has no backbone, he shrunk like a cheap shirt in the face of opposition to his plans to net & bolt deer to death. Telling us he was proud to be pilot program for the state to slaughter deer with net & bolt, then making an about face (back room) and now lauds himself for this immuno effort. This man hasn't an authentic bone in his body, he is held together by politically correct rhetoric and people pleasing viscus. Swiderski has woven B.P., the world's environmental pariah, into the fabric of Hastings, and didn't even get paid. For a few grand, he and his trustees have been posed for photo ops behind 5, 000 dollar checks as part of BP's "greenwashing" campaign. Swiderski sat in a BP "green vehicle" and was posed with his hand out, with a BP exec. Considering the p.r. position BP found themselves and their worth, you'd be hard pressed to find a more exploited shill. A town with this guy as it's face, should shudder to think that the town's "Board of Ethics," only meets at behest of the Mayor. Immunize Hastings of Swiderski, they deserve better than this cartoon.
