About United Monroe
The United Monroe Party was created in 2013 by a group of non-partisan, concerned citizens in response to the unfair and unbalanced decisions made by the Monroe Town Board.
The goal of United Monroe was to replace the 3 Town Board members who were up for election in November 2013 since the sitting Board was clearly not representing all of the people of Monroe, but instead, were representing the voting bloc in Kiryas Joel who elected them.
Due to apparent fraud within Kiryas Joel and disenfranchisement of the voters outside of Kiryas Joel on election day, the United Monroe party lost their bid for Town Board.
About the Proposed Land Annexation
Just one month after the Town Board election was called in favor of the Kiryas Joel backed candidates, a petition was filed to annex 507 acres of Town of Monroe land into the Village of Kiryas Joel.
The Town Supervisor, Harley Doles, following the submission of this petition to annex 507 acres, released a letter he sent to Mayor Wieder of Kiryas Joel. In this letter, Supervisor Doles attempted to confuse the public.
