Scott Vanderhoef may say he wants to reform Albany, but he's a master of the time-honored Albany tradition of pay to play politics.
As Rockland County Executive, Scott Vanderhoef awarded lucrative county contracts to companies that gave a combined $150,000 to his election campaigns -- exactly the kind of behavior that landed former Republican Majority Leader Joe Bruno in jail and made our legislature a national laughing stock.
What's more, Vanderhoef accepted $119,147 in campaign donations from Rockland County employees. Thirty two County employees who donated more than $1000 to Vanderhoef's campaign each received a salary increase of $16,000.
