That's right, plant some flowers in the boxes, that will vastly improve the "beauty" of the neighborhood. NOT! I suggest you concentrate on the filthy streets, littered with trash by the slobs who walk through the area, or drive through and toss trash out of their car windows. View Comment
Yes, Cuomo (and his buddies in D.C.) directly caused the 2008 financial meltdown. The fact that none of those bankers who were responsible were sent to prison for their crimes, tells us a lot about the politicians who not only allowed the crimes, and encouraged the crimes, but condoned them afterward.

We all know the criminal Cuomo will win by a vast majority, because the people are just too ignorant to think independently. They'll elect him time and again (if there were no term limits), because they believe all of his lies. View Comment
Mayor Davis is arrogant and narcissistic. Those traits won't allow him to do the right thing, which would be to resign from his position with what little dignity he may have left, rather than continue "business as usual" and eventually be forced to resign in disgrace.
I hope he gets the max of six months in jail (unfortunately, that's the most he can get, under the plea deal he made with Preet Bharara), but he'll probably plead that he's an old man and should not have to spend any time in jail.
And his current term does not end in 2016; it ends at the end of 2015. He is already planning to run for re-election in November 2015. View Comment
Nita Lowey is the Nancy Pelosi of Westchester. She blames all the government's failures on the Republicans, but refuses to acknowledge that most of the failures have been caused by her own Democrats. In fact, the Republican-controlled House has passed better than 50% of the bills sent to them by the Democrat-controlled Senate, but Harry "The Mouse" Reid shelved them, under orders from Nancy Pelosi, just so they could blame the Reupblicans. Nita Lowey should get out, as she doesn't do any good for the people she's supposed to represent (unless we're referring to the one-percenters, and she's in that club herself). View Comment
This is one of the most useless projects ever. Do they really think that by planting a few pretty flowers in the boxes, it will beautify the city? The streets are the filthiest in the County, and they will continue to be the filthiest, until city codes and ordinances are enforced and the slobs are fined for tossing their trash into the streets.

Many of the houses in Mount Vernon are short sales; the owners are so desperate to leave this city, they'll take a loss just to get away. The article doesn't mention there are a few hundred houses in foreclosure, and many have been taken over by the city due to non-payment of the property taxes. View Comment
I suspect the "tipster" who alerted the police about Servino skimming the coins, is someone who wanted a piece of the action, and Servino refused to share. Or maybe Servino just refused to make a contribution to the Mayor's re-election campaign fund. View Comment
Servino's taxpayer-paid salary for this year is $62,315. That's about $1200 a week. PLUS at least another $10,000 in benefits (paid for by the overburdened Mt. Vernon taxpayers). Now he gets caught stealing at least $540, but we can be sure this was not his first time stealing. He may have stolen thousands over the years. I hope he isn't being paid while on suspension. The best penalty for this criminal would be to be fired and to lose all of his pension. View Comment
Jason, you are a typical liberal Democrat - you label people without knowing anything about them. You have labeled me a Conservative but I am not. You may be right about the conservative ideology dying off in a few years, but then there will be only one ideology, and people will not be capable of thinking for themselves, just as what happened in 1935 Germany.

Note that on his WVOX radio show on Thursday morning, Davis claimed that he was singled out solely because he's a black male. Since when does the IRS identify tax cheats by their race or skin color? Davis needs to be reminded that Nick Spano, Vincent Leibell, and a few others are not black males, but they all were convicted of tax evasion (and in some cases, other crimes) and served time in prison.

Looks like Governor Cuomo has pressed the panic button by informing the public that ebola is not the flu. That is good reason for a public panic. Ebola is 98% deadly, but very few people die from flu. View Comment
Those who are supportive of the Mayor Davis, are not property owners and do not pay taxes to run the city. They are takers, not givers, and are on the receiving end of favors from the Mayor. View Comment
