This project WILL be receiving a TAX ABATEMENT and a PILOT. It's not misinformation. The honest taxpayers of Mount Vernon will bear the burden once again.
Most of the people who have spoken in favor of this project, at previous public hearings, may have been paid to do so. Some even read notes from cards, and after they spoke, they abruptly left the room. View Comment
Interesting to note that most of the liberal-controlled news media ignored this story. But if Andrew Barovick was a Republican, they'd have it all over their front pages and the main story on their news tv programs.
Most people I know, personal friends and co-workers, identify themselves as Democrats, and some go further to identify themselves as Liberals, but many of them are much more racist than any of my friends who idenfity themselves as Republicans/Conservatives. Just look at where all the wealthy white Liberals choose to live - in places like Katonah, Chappaqua, Scarsdale - far away from the cities where the majority populations are black and Latino.

The Democrats never were concerned about budgets and tax increases when their criminal buddy Andy Spano was CE. This "review" of the next budget is obviously a partisan agenda, the Democrats want to give the Republican Astorino a hard time. View Comment
Leonard, you're right about the property and school taxes being so high. Especially in a city like Mount Vernon, which is run by the corrupt Mayor Ernie Davis and his corrupt cronies in City Hall; and the Mount Vernon City Schools, which have been run by a criminally negligent board. View Comment
Nothing is mentioned about the cost of the parking time. Now it's $1 per hour (25 cents for 15 minutes). But if the provider Pango is going to make money, I'm guessing the cost of parking will increase significantly. View Comment
I like the phrase used by the article's author. "The Democrats are poised to maintain their stranglehold." That's exactly what the Democrats have done to New York - strangled the life out of it. View Comment
I'm disappointed Cuomo was re-elected, but not surprised. Apparently the people like his lying cheating ways, and his condoning of criminal acts against the people by his fellow Democrats. View Comment
I'm sorry Day lost, but it would be difficult for anyone to beat Lowey, who has a good line of BS and lies that the people believe. During the debate, Day gave honest answers to every question asked of him, but all Lowey did was brag about her perceived accomplishments, and every other sentence out of her mouth was something negative about the Republicans.

Hey pumpkinaptra2 - if YOU read the comment above mine, you'll notice the posting states 30,000 tickets but nothing about how many fines and license revocations were actually administered. Probably only a few thousand, therefore the law is not being enforced.
And it IS a law passed by Democrats. Your Governor Cuomo and Senator Schumer have claimed full credit for it. Laws mean absolutely nothing if they're not fully enforced, and this is one of many. View Comment
