Weiss: I am a Lower Makefield Resident, despite what “altered” Documents say

Published

on

Alleged notarized copies of documents said to originate from Lower Makefield Board Chairman Fred Weiss were posted to Facebook Tuesday night questioning his commonwealth residency.

The post claims the documents show Weiss is no longer  a resident of the township -since January of this year- and is “defrauding” Lower Makefield residents out of tax dollars due to an application for a Homestead exemption.

Weiss said he thinks the documents posted were altered to make it look like he and his wife Cynthia  applied for the tax break. 

“We can’t apply for that exemption because we are Pennsylvania residents” Weiss said “You have to prove state residency to apply for Homestead with documents such as your state identification.” 

The timing of the revelations he said seems to be a coordinated effort to halt a vote on the sale of the municipalities sewer system.

The posting came just hours before Yardley Borough Council met in a special meeting to discuss Lower Makefields plans to vote on selling the municipalities sewer system. Yardley is asking Lower Makefield to at least delay the vote scheduled for tonight.

A temporary vote delay, at least until next months meeting looks to be happening.

There will  be  no sewer talk at the  board meeting and/ or until this residency issue thing is cleared up,  said Weiss

.” I don’t want to take away from the business of the board.”

At no time did I ever consider becoming a Florida resident, he said, I  have a disabled family member living in the area  and a son who lives in Levittown. Yes my wife has family in Florida and we often travel back and forth now that I am retired, Weiss reiterated. 

Weiss said Tuesday night the  township is investigating the residency allegations  said in no uncertain  he expects the investigation to clear him. 

Weiss said for tonight’s nights board meeting he is “stepping aside temporarily” and vice chair Dan Grenier would lead the meeting.

Asked whether he intended to complete his term as a supervisor Weiss said absolutely. 

“This is a free country and we can have more than one home. The gaul some people who want to get their own way”

Attempts to reach vice- chair Dan Grenier for this story were unsuccessful Wednesday morning. 

In related matter Board of Supervisors will meet virtually this evening at 7:30. There have been no changes to the agenda since it has been posted.

    The documents he claims were altered are here directly from the Florida records site. https://pubrec6.hillsclerk.com/ORIPublicAccess/customSearch.html?instrument=2020052212
    This is demonstrably a lie. Are you going to report that?

A duo from the New York City area were arrested and charged last week accused of attempting to commit identity theft and other related offenses on April 1 at a Lower Makefield bank.

According to Lower Makefield Police, around 1:30 p.m. Maolong Li, 54 of Flushing and Tammy Saikun Lee, 31 of Brooklyn, walked into to the Citizens Bank, 700 block, Stony Hill Road, attempting to commit fraud, the bank manager told police.

The investigation revealed the male was attempting to access others’ business accounts using a fake ID. The female was working as a translator with a fake state ID as well.

Lee told police, for some unknown reason, they might find crystal meth in the vehicle they were operating. Police seized the vehicle and requested a search warrant.

They were charged with identity theft, forgery, access device fraud and conspiracy. They were arraigned by Judge Daniel  Baranowski. Lee was sent to Bucks County Correctional Facility (BCCF) in lieu of 10%/$75,000 bail and posted it on April 2. Li was sent to BCCF in lieu of 10%/$150,000 bail where he remains.
