It's amazing how people opposed to a project can distort the facts. In Yorktown, where Costco is finally getting approval, opponents claimed that the delivery trucks would be terrible, but they ignore the fact that no one notices trucks delivering to BJ's across the street, or the the dozens of UPS trucks that must go in and out of downtown Yorktown every day for their depot. How about the trucks delivering to Target in MK? Have they caused problems with traffic there? It's even further away from 684. View Comment
Didn't they do the publishing of stuff there and didn't RD sell millions of issues a month back then? Wouldn't there have been a LOT of trucks going to and from the location? Did anyone complain about truck traffic then? View Comment
I love it, getting stuck in an ambulance because of retail traffic.. the same lame excuse used by a laughable opponent of the Costco in Yorktown, which coincidentally got approved the same week as this project.
This is great news and Whole Foods is going to do extremely well in that location. View Comment
No scare tactics? What about all of his mailers blaming Wagner for his employer's clients, as if he had any say over them? I can't believe he was elected. But then again, this is the same district that elected Greg Ball twice.
So let's see how he manages to kill Common Core, as he promised. View Comment
Did the town board even have a vote on MKMG? They certainly have not voted on Costco yet, it's still at the Planning Board. Murphy hasn't done a thing to bring in more businesses. Let's hear what he's doing to get something into the old Food Emporium. View Comment
Personally, I am really annoyed by Murphy's mailers constantly going after Wagner for his employer's clients. He works for a huge law firm. He's not even a partner. Does Murphy think that people are so mindless that they hold Wagner responsible for clients of his employer, over which he has no control? View Comment
So obviously stupidity is not a criminal offense, but there must be some way to prosecute some of these clowns and put them in jail.
From another story:
"Westchester County police said the trucker was not using a commercial GPS that would have steered him off the parkway – where trucks are banned.
Instead, Knight told police he was investigating using Google Maps on his smartphone."
So if they can get him on using the phone while driving, is there anything they can do other than a fine? Perhaps change the law so it's a felony if property damage over some amount is caused while using the phone? View Comment
Sorry, I should have been clearer. I do not believe that number, or anything in the ad. Nor do I believe that Murphy had anything to do with Costco wanting to come here;.
And there's no need to be so obnoxious. View Comment
