Sounds like she's looking to add money and thereby expenses to the budget. That'll require higher taxes. And so on and so on and so on.
Only Democrats don't understand this and have a hard time cutting anything (and when they do cut they cut the wrong things). View Comment
But I'm not sure they'll want or can afford my $17,000 tax bill. Real Estate needs demand and when our property taxes goes through roof nobody wants to live here.
Sorry you can't see the trees through the forest. View Comment
Sounds like an unfunded mandate from Albany to me. Cops don't have enough time to control major crime let alone a law that nobody adheres too. 30,000 tickets may seem like a lot but I bet they could have written 100,000 tickets if they wanted.
And its how the story gets written, from a perspective. You my friend are the bonehead. Nice write up Activist. View Comment
As with most things Noam Bramson does in New Rochelle, the devil is in the details.
I'm sure casual readers picking up on this story would say this is sounds great. But my mom always said, if its too good it might not be true.
So I'd like to know, what did New Rochelle give up in order to secure this deal with LAZ Parking? I really doubt LAZ is investing $700k without getting something in return. Mayor Bramson said it won't affect property taxes but if New Rochelle takes in less Parking Meter revenue that's definatley going to drive our property taxes higher it has too. Basic math tells us that. Maybe Noam's lost in Common Core and can't do basic math?
Noam just continues to baffle me with these asinine plans that are slowly driving New Rochelle further and further into a hole that only higher property taxes will cure. View Comment
Its obvious congress didn't need to approve the $60 billion for reconstruction. Lots of waste included in there, especially all these BS ads that continue to run 2 years later. Time to move on.
I suppose no expense is worth cutting to you? God forbid we spend less on something.
Maloney's going down, get used to it. His own poll shows him getting less than 50%. Hillary and Bill can do all the stumping they want but it isn't going to help. View Comment
I caught one of these rockets launching a year or two ago and it was awesome. Sorry I missed last nights explosion, that would have been equally awesome. Not sure how far that could be seen but I'm sure it was on the launch pad webcam. View Comment
Well, not really if unemployment goes up because companies go out of business due to the higher min. wage, then there will a much higher demand for social services.
Remember, min. wage isn't supposed to be a living wage but rather a starting point not meant to sustain a family. View Comment
Latimer's just out of step with reality.
On Common Core Latimer wants to reform not repeal the program, but I'm not sure how something so broken can be fixed.
And let's not forget Latimer's also running on the Working Families Party is almost a socialist party but he embraces it.
And don't forget every time New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson wants a new tax or fee, he goes straight to his friend Senator George Latimer who he knows will unconditionally support it.
Joe D. on the other hand won't support any of these things and we sure could use a senator like that. Vote Dillon!
Swell and I feel for the people in that neighborhood.
What is the process was at the State level?
Was this another underhanded slight on New Rochelle by Senator George Latimer?
Bramson's just worthless, but I bet he stays under that tax cap this year with all his Red Light Camera money.
BTW, big thanks to Senator Latimer for getting the Red Light Camera law pushed through legislature. We all needed that like a hole in the head. View Comment
