the good senator represents the far far far left of the political spectrum and has no interest in promoting jobs or small business.
She's got the mentality of who needs a job when the government will send you a check?
We'll all be in deep deep trouble if she ever becomes the majority leader as she's a big supporter of any and all the NYC government giveaways. View Comment
Anyone surprised Astorino crushed Bramson? Even in New Rochelle, Bramson only squeaked out a slim majority of the votes.
And he really ought to focus on keeping New Rochelle affordable, he policies are taxing many out of their homes. And few want to live anywhere near New Rochelle's public housing, they do drive down prices.
But he's gerrymandered the districts so he's assured to get reelected and keep his super-majority. View Comment
Parking improvements or not, people aren't going to visit or shop downtown New Rochelle when they read about 300 teenagers from a NYC housing project coming to New Ro for a field trip. View Comment
But before you vote,ask yourself, "Do I want county government to go back to the days of Andy Spano"?
Electing Haina Just-Michael would do just that and Rob Astorino's been doing a really great job and needs board members who support him.
And when she talks financial restraint, how is it that the library budget has almost doubled in a short 12 years? View Comment
Who knew we had such problems with parking? Didn't New Rochelle just spend a ton of money putting in new meters not long ago that can take credit cards? Now for $700k plus whatever New Ro gave away in return, we can use our smart phones. Big deal and our parking revenue is about to drop to zero forever.
This is a win for Laz, and a lose for New Rochelle who went for a short term again vs. long term gain. Laz Parking is only here to make money, money that should be going to New Rochelle. And if they lose money, they're out of business. Are they going to write the tickets too? Or haven't we sold that off yet?
And let's not forget, there are many better places to shop and dine that have totally FREE parking. View Comment
Gerrymandering keeps politicians in office as does the lack of term limits.
Then add in the unrestricted use of campaign money without the fear of losing their pensions and you've got the receipt for disaster. View Comment
Paying cops to do this is a real waste of money.
Why not put i-beams at every entrance and let the trucks take the punishment?
And can't we get rid of county police? Their whole existence seems redundant. View Comment
I read enough to realize for the most part they're meaningless bills that either stand no chance of passing (thus the votes are meaningless) or they're not going to affect most in anyway whatsoever so I wouldn't really classify any of these votes as bi-partisan. And btw, you say the bills are conservative, but offer nothing to substantiate your claim.
But back to the big issues like income redistribution, minimum wage increase, dream act, rent regulations, late term abortion, taxes, pension reform and/or the tax cap Senator Latimer's already voiced his support (or a lack there of) and all of these issues hurt his constituents and are primarily NYC issues that he's embraced.
Why doesn't he embrace the American Dream? You know hard work, move up the ladder, make life better for yourself? No instead, Latimer and the Democrats have embraced government handouts and entitlements as the way to go. Forget jobs and doing something to create them. View Comment
Those would have passed regardless and it doesn't show that he's bi-partisan. And those issues aren't that conservative, Regents? Safe Act Amendments (with no chance of becoming law btw) and penal code adjustments? They're all worthless pieces of legislation so I fail to see your point that somehow Senator George Latimer's a bi-partisan senator.
On issues that matter like the Dream Act, min wage increase, rent laws, tax cap, taxes, late term abortion, spending ect , he's going to vote in line with the NYC crowd. You know it but why not embrace it like Latimer does? View Comment
If you think he's bi-partisan, I've got a beautiful bridge you might be interested in. And I doubt any Republican respects him or his ideas. Come to think of it, has he ever worked with a Republican on anything? View Comment
