E. Hills fight on the record

Matthew Weiss, candidate for East Hills mayor, obtained village billings from the firm Rivkin Radler through a freedom-of-information request that show incumbent Michael Koblenz’s son Adam billed for village work while employed by the firm.

In addition, correspondence with the town attorney from November indicates that a shift in firms prompted the younger Koblenz to inquire as to the next step. For what it may be worth to those concerned, that letter is posted below.

From the other side: As noted before, the Koblenz camp says the Weiss camp is attempting to concoct issues -- while, they say, Koblenz gets things done. Most recently, Mayor Koblenz noted that, through the village’s efforts, property on Northern Boulevard was sold for commercial development, and won’t be a Lowe’s Home Center, a plan that aroused community concerns over truck traffic and the impact of its hours on the community.

The village posts a fuller account of its victory on its website here.

This is the legal-work letter:
