North Greenbush Town Supervisor Lou Desso presented his budget proposal Thursday night, but his comments over allegations he overstepped his authority took center stage at a meeting.

In September, Desso defended himself against accusations he improperly handled payments for a sewer hookup to his property. Desso says he's seeking reelection, and claims he and his family have been the subject of public and political attacks by a small group of residents looking to oust him from office.

"And I welcome personally an investigation by anyone who's looking for the truth, not to take personal attacks," Desso said.
