Still westchester is better off with Astorino running for governor than if Noam Bramson had won.
btw, maybe we could do away with county government, wouldn't that save a ton of money?
I know I know you're one of those, bigger is better democrats. The bigger our govenment is, the better it is. Well not many are buying that line these days. View Comment
NYC would like it to be.
Why do we keep electing the likes of Andrea Stewart-Cousins & George Latimer? They do nothing to make NY better unless you're on food stamps or some other state program. View Comment
This isn't really finished though. Bramson's still hell bent on spending $35 million to move the city yard, all of which will have to be borrowed.
Why doesn't Bramson leave things as they are? New Rochelle certainly doesn't need more residential development. Residents want services and the citys broke already, plus Bramson only proposed projects with big big tax abatements.
A big thanks to Councilman Al Tarantino for pushing to make this aspect of Echo Bay over. View Comment
She admitted she took the drugs so what's her defense?
I didn't mean to drink the whole bottle of scotch but it's empty now so I guess I did. It was a mistake and I thought that was soda. My bad, please let me off. View Comment
I think Idoni's spending too much time on this and should redirect his energy into the Office of County Clerk. Isn't that what he's paid to do? Maybe he should resign?
Oh, that job (county clerk) could be eliminated? Yes, that's correct and if we never heard from Tim Idoni again we'd all be better off.
He was bad enough that New Rochelle had to promote him to get rid of him. View Comment
He wasn't supposed to beat Spano either and he did.
He wasn't supposed to beat Bramson and he did.
Astorino won both of these races by more than 10%.
People care & so should you. I do. How about you? View Comment
Not for nothing, but the Senator's a few years behind the 8-ball as is most of NY's ez-pass equipment. The entire network should be upgraded.
Yes NY was the 1st, but take a ride down the Garden State Parkway or I-95 south and you don't even have to slow down to go through ez-pass. You just sail through at 55 or 65.
Thanks though to Senator Latimer for coming to and stating the obvious conclusion. And now how about a 3rd lane on the Hutch? You know where it bottlenecks every day & night just south of I-287. That would really improve everyone who rides the Hutch's life. And think of the money and time we'll all save not sitting in our cars. View Comment
While it might seem nice that NYS is saving a few million by not mailing the checks, a few million in the state budget is really like talking about pennies.
With a credit, the money won't stimulate the economy at all which this is supposed to do and it'll get lost in your tax return so that there will no benefit to the money at all. Plus with the checks, the money's put out at 1 time when they're mailed. With tax credits, the money could hit anytime between 2/1 & 10/15 (the last date to file your return) so it'll water down any benefits.
Too bad Sen. Latimer can never see the big picture as usual. For him its about helping the small guy with state benefits, rather than helping the small guy find a job by supporting job creation & pro growth agendas.
When are they raising the Hartley Houses?
Or did Bramson decide to let them stand?
The plan that I always heard 15 years ago was to build townhouses (phase 1 is now complete) where the projects are. I beleive there are 6 buildings now and only 1 was supposed to stay. More townhouses were supposed to go where the 5 buildings currently stand.
Anyone know what the plan is now? Its a horrible, crime infested area of New Rochelle that I could do without. View Comment
