Joe, to your points:
1) the 2% Property Tax Cap is disingenuous as it has to many exceptions that don't actually force a municipality to adhere to 2%.
2) Tax free enterprise zones force us, the taxpayer to make up the balance of what these entities don't pay. Plus they are mostly within university properties which translates to cheap college labor and an abundance of part-time jobs, not full time.
3) The HUD issue has never been covered fairly (my opinion) and only portrays Astorino in a negative light. And maybe capitulating to the demands of big government may not seem to be an issue for you, Meehan was right when he refuses the aid because of the strings attached to it.
4) The use of numbers that are reprinted both online and in print without being challenged is situation created by and condoned by the online editors and the print editors who allow it. Shame on them.
The problem we have with the media is the one-sided-ness of promoting certain politicians over another and not evenly covering all players. You just offered Paul Feiner carte blanche by offering him a platform with this site. And after you've got him hooked for free as "an experiment", like any junkie, you then want to charge us $2k per month. Even though you'll tout standards that will be in place, it is not something that should happen. View Comment
OUR hope in Greenburgh is that you hold yourself and your board to this same standard, keeping a log and publicizing it. How ironic that you receive almost the same amount of money and are only campaigning daily. WE all wish you would stop showing up. YOU are getting paid and we have worse government than the County. The fact that the Greenburgh Daily Voice even prints your garbage proves they are just as corrupt as you are. View Comment
They've added more trains during OFF peak times to bolster their on-time "ratings", which are horrible. It used to be "switch problems" when it was cold. Then it was equipment trouble in the heat. It seems that they can only operate when it is sunny and 70° out. The cars and the seats are filthy - look at the crud on the headrests. Yuck! There's never any seats during rush hour; and because they've added trains, the tracks are more congested, forcing them all to crawl from station to station. It must be time for a fare increase, no?

This is a waste of time. We're having a resurgence because of availability and a higher level of drugs of drugs getting into the US. Plus, a higher level of income provides the "seed" money to start dabbling. Its once they are addicted that the crimes start. PSH was an a**hole. HE chose to stick the needle into his arm. He chose to hurt his wife/girlfriend. HE chose to abandon his kids. HE chose to die. Stop making him out to be the victim. HE is the perpetrator here. View Comment
She can almost get away with breaking the law as much as Paul Feiner. She's guilty but they have to play the game so they can buy off her not guilty verdict or guilty and community service verdict. Such a shame – only in NY! View Comment
More of Feiner’s deflections to take the focus off of him as he costs the Greenburgh $6,500,000 in fines with the Fortress Bible case. He is GUILTY on seven counts! He should be removed from office and be sent to jail!!!! View Comment
So while this cop killer goes free, a real hero, Richie Digug remains in jail for saving his father from a bat-wielding jerk. Now Hollyweird will offer him more parts, sing this idiot’s praises for killing a cop and put him on a pedestal. Its so sad. View Comment
It’s great to have saps like you regurgitate what Paul knows will sound good but doesn’t mean. He just published his year-end results which had counterpoints on www.ABetterGreenburgh.blogspot.com. Many of those same topics are mentioned in this post but left unaddressed and unchallenged. How about doing some digging and write an expose on the illegal actions of the supervisor? That would get you some hits. I would prefer hearing that he would listen but engage in two-way conversations that have only been one-sided and not responsive, especially at Town Board meetings. Mostly, I'd enjoy he and the Town Board simply stop lying. View Comment
Do we really need farmer's markets anymore? When they started many years ago there were few fresh food outlets. That's not the case nowadays. Mrs Green's just opened right down the street at the old Turcos/Morton Williams. Almost directly across the street is Apple Farm. Its no wonder they cannot get participants. Fresh food is everywhere and not as expensive as these farmers markets. View Comment
"Greenburgh readies..." and again no mention of anything Greenburgh in the article. You guys are like the online AP wire stories. You just add the word Greenburgh or any other community to the title to make it apropos to the community. Why bother? View Comment
With our fire protection district taxes so high, our fire department should stay in Hartsdale and protect us, not go off to fight fires in Yonkers. Let them hire their own fire fighters or work with their neighbors. Its the worst unionism ever. View Comment
All good information for sure. But as Janet ages the photos find her farther and farther from the camera lens. Its a good thing this isn’t high def. Good campaign piece for her, but other than the mention of Chappaqua, it doesn’t discuss any scams in Greenburgh. Too bad. View Comment
Oxymoron? Principal means a person who has controlling authority or is in a leading position. Two people can’t be the principal. Let's not keep score, give trophies to everyone, hold hands and sing Kumbayah. View Comment
