Pearl River, NY -- (6/23/16) Tom DePrisco, candidate for the 38th Senate District in New York, today released the following statement:
Now let’s go back in time to January 2014 when both Senator Carlucci and Assemblywoman Jaffee successfully passed similar legislation granting a retroactive tax exemption for a different private school – Talmud Torah Ohr Yochanan. When similar questions arose regarding proper documentation involving the school, both Carlucci and Jaffee asked the governor to veto their passed legislation. Two years ago, both Senator Carlucci and Assemblywoman Jaffee seemed to give assurances that this type of mishap would not happen again. Unfortunately and shamefully, it did happen again.
We need our representatives in Albany to be thoroughly discerning and diligent when it comes to granting tax exemptions to institutions."
