So your answer to our energy needs are to import more from the Middle East? That's no solution and neither are solar/wind.
Most of the Middle East hates us, why would you want to support them instead of us? Is this part of the wealth redistribution matrix you Dems so proudly endorse?
Soon PA will have pumped out all the gas and nothing will be left for NY, except the scraps as usual. View Comment
Its called redistribution of wealth, I'm sure you've heard of it before.
The wealthy are taxed more and receive less while the poor pay nothing & collect, collect & collect.
Why did Senators George Latimer & Andrea Stewart-Cousins allow this to happen? Time to replace these 2. Millions in lost aid and these 2 fight for pre-k in NYC. What a joke.
But the mayor's change comes with a price. millions of dollars of tax abatements to the corporate 1% that the rest of the citizens will have to make up. And this is in a city that's broke and has to borrow/bond money every year. Eventually all the borrowing will catch up to New Rochelle & we could end up like Greece.
If he's so inclined to hand out tax breaks, why not give something to the people who pay taxes now?
And we certainly don't need any more low income housing, its already proved to be a disaster for New Rochelle.
I do agree, change will come, but does it have to be a residential tax abated 40 story skyscraper? Why not an office building? At least then we wouldn't have to build new schools. View Comment
Is Bramson delusional? New Rochelle doesn't need more residents! You'd think he would have gotten the hint after the last election when the voters of Westchester County scrutinized his record in New Rochelle and they said hell no we don't want for Westchester County what he's done to New Rochelle. And with the fallout of Echo Bay, it's become apparent that our schools are already full to the brim so his plan will increase your school taxes because we're suddenly going to need several new schools. And couple that with the fact that none of this development will be done without huge tax abatements which will further increase everyone's taxes; school, county & city.
I can't wait for the next election, it can't come soon enough. We need Al Tarantino to run for mayor. He's the one with any common sense. Bramson's just plain delusional and I don't know why he doesn't just leave well enough alone. View Comment
I really don't want or expect anything. New Rochelle talked about reassessment but the mayor said it'll cost $2 million that the city doesn't have so I'd like to know what does our full time assessor actually do? I think he should be fired. View Comment
If I paid Miss. taxes, I could send my kids to private school. I get no services from NY, except my garbage gets pick-up twice a week and I expect a cop or fireman to come if I need one. The rest is all fluff. You politicians all think you're doing great stuff for us but we don't want it! View Comment
Where's the Latimer supporters?
Where's the Stewart-Cousins supporters?
Both need to go. Just yesterday both voted for the Dream Act. Sounds like a great idea to give these kids assistance to go to college, except NY should take care of the people here legally first and not worry about and be so concerned about illegal immigrants. View Comment
Who's Bramson kidding? New Rochelle hasn't had any development that didn't come with massive tax abatements for well over 25 years. He'll try to tell you that the new residents won't use this or that service but they do. And the problem then becomes everyone's problem because the remaining residents then have to pay extra.

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
