Answered Questions

By Scott Russell
Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell agreed to respond to readers' questions on the Newsroom Blog.

Mr. Russell, 45, a former town tax assessor, was elected supervisor in 2005 and re-elected -- to a newly created four-year term -- in 2007. A Republican, he pledged to govern from the center and says he looks to build consensus across party lines. He lives in Cutchogue with his wife and two children.

FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING A GREAT JOB IN MANY AREAS, HOWEVER OF COURSE LIKE SO MANY WAYS OUR TAXES ARE INCREASED WHICH WE ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT. HOWEVER THINGS ARE IMPROVING.

AS A SENIOR I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NORMAL STAR PROGRAM WHICH EVERY ONE GETS, THEN THE ENHANCED STAR PREDICATED UPON A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF INCOME AND THEN THE SENIOR, WHAT EVER THAT ONE IS CALLED. ALSO WHO DICTATES WHAT NON REIMBURSED MEDICAL EXPENSE WHICH CAN BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR GROSS TAXABLE INCOME.?

THIS WAY OF COMMUNICATION IS WONDERFUL, IT TAKES COURAGE TO DO IT.

THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE

DERITH SUTHERLAND
