EDITORIAL

Merger madness

A new television commercial enjoins Westchester residents to notify their state elected officials that they support Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s policy to force the myriad of taxing entities in the county — school districts, special districts, towns and villages — to consolidate and merge, in the name of efficiency and lower property taxes.

Instead, ask your elected officials why the governor hasn’t fulfilled his promise of state mandate reform and relief, which he made around the time of imposition of a 2 percent cap on the property tax levy. Ask why no meaningful mandate reform has occurred and exactly when the governor will deliver on his promise.

Since 2009, Cuomo has pushed for consolidation of local governments, the 10,000-plus taxing entities in New York State, pitching the municipal consolidation as the best way to reduce property taxes. But if it was an issue in his gubernatorial campaign, we missed it.
