New Rochelle has 1 of the states lowest tax rates? That's laughable and the rest of the county didn't believe it when Noam said it during his run for CE so why should we now?
Who's compiling those stats, Noam?
And the Democrats dumped Sheri Rackman? What's up with that? I guess she went against Noam 1 too many times, but every resident I know is thankful Echo Bay died although Noam certainly would like to resurrect it.
And with Liz Fried, Noam's looking for and he's going to get that puppet to give him the 4th vote. Go ahead, google her name and you'll see she was an outspoken proponent of the failed Echo Bay Ratner project that the rest of New Rochelle (except Noam) wanted desperately to get out of. I guess he spent too much time on the County Executive race that he lost because the Echo Bay death vote came right after that.
Mayor Tax Abatement, how much debt did New Rochelle have when you became mayor and how much do we have now? I bet its an astronomical increase that New Rochelle really can't afford. View Comment
But you're paying more so others can pay less. How's that ok? And if someone can't afford to live in your building, why should they be allowed? Why shouldn't they pay the same? Why should the landlord be forced to subsidize tenants? Why should they have to lose money?
And if rent control is such a great thing, why doesn't the rest of the country have similar laws? View Comment
Your scenario only works if there's rent control. Take away rent control and problem solved.
Why should landlords have to deal with this BS in the 1st place? Nowhere else in the US are there laws like this, except San Fran.
Can't afford the rent, then move. View Comment
2 questions come to mind on this.
1. Why's Mayor Noam Bramson so hell bent on all this residential development? and
2. Who's paying for all this? I take it the current tax paying residents? The projects have to be tax abated, otherwise they won't get built and nothing's for free. View Comment
So basically neither Senator Latimer nor Senator Stewart-Cousins support even the weak teacher evaluations put into the budget?
Not surprising considering the amount of support they each get from the teacher's union. But ask yourself, would this route be good? I really doubt it and its designed to keep things the same.
I don't understand how anyone could vote for either of these 2. View Comment
Why is the state involved at all? People shouldn't live where they can't afford to. Why not let the market dictate?
No other area, except San Fran, have rent laws. Time to let them expire. View Comment
Was this career day or just another way to spread the propaganda?
Politicians should just stay away from these events and certainly they shouldn't be espousing politics as a career. Albany's already filled with legislators we can't get rid. Can anyone say Term Limits? View Comment
Why isn't the City of New Rochelle putting any money into this?
The city would seem to benefit the most. Where's Noam? Hoping to let this slide into disrepair like so many other city institutions? View Comment
But the care isn't the same, it's only gotten worse since Obamacare became law and only 10 million of the 50 million uninsured have gotten coverage. Signing up only 20% of your target population is horrendous. View Comment
