Mount Vernon City Charter C-26
Elective Officers Removable by the Governor
The Mayor and Comptroller may be removed by the Governor in the same manner as a sheriff, except that the Governor may direct the inquiry provided by law to be conducted by the Attorney General. After charges have been received by the Governor, he may suspend the officer affected thereby for a period not exceeding 60 days pending the investigation.
IT IS TOTAL DISRESPECTFUL TO THE PEOPLE OF MT. VERNON, A DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY CITY THAT GOV. CUOMO HAS REFUSED TO TAKE ACTION ON A MAYOR THAT HAS BEEN INDICTED ON CRIMINAL CHARGES AND HAS CONTINUED TO COMMIT ALLEGED CRIMES AND VIOLATIONS THAT WILL PUT A FINANCIAL BURDEN ON THE CITY OF MT. VERNON AND ITS TAXPAYERS!
GOVERNOR CUOMO REACTED FASTER TO DEMAND THE RESIGNATION OF FORMER AG ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN FOR A INCIDENT THAT HE WAS ACCUSED OF AND HAS TURNED A BLIND EYE TO THE CRIMINALLY INDICTED MAYOR THAT IS RUNNING OUR CITY TO THE GROUND.
Many residents feel that Mount Vernon Mayor Richard Thomas has done so much to disgrace this city. He has been indited by the NYS Attorney Generals Office and continues to violate city laws with multiple crimes while in office and is consistently misleading the public. Its so bad, the council petition a temporary restraining order against Mayor Thomas and won.
The mayor has violated provisions of the City Charter that prohibit using public office for private gain, creating false propaganda to mislead the public, unlawful behaviour, settling city business without the Council's consent and using the police department as his own lynch mob to punish, arrest and intimidate residents.
Under the city's charter, the city council president has the power to send a letter to the governor of New York, Gov. Cuomo, to force the mayor to forfeit his position.
Cuomo has clearer authority to remove Thomas from office faster than any of the other methods in play.
