According to The Mamaroneck Review, Village of Mamaroneck Deputy Mayor, Louis Santoro is pushing for a taxpayer-funded attorney to fight an ethics complaint. This is the second time that Santoro is asking for the Village to pay for a personal attorney. Last year, the Village paid for a personal attorney when he defended himself against a lawsuit brought on by Mayor Norman Rosenblum regarding the trustees’ decision to remove the mayor’s authority to name members of several village boards. The Review reports that Santoro is again hiring a personal attorney-himself-this time to defend against a complaint that he didn’t recuse himself from certain deliberations at a public meeting that was held in February. It’s not clear if the Village will pay again for a personal attorney, since the practice is still being discussed by the Village Board. An Ethics Board representative stated that it has not yet taken up the complaint against Santoro.
