Update on the Louis Engel Waterfront Park feasibility Study

Good evening,

Please go (at your convenience) to the home page of the townofossining.com web page.  We decided since we had to postpone the Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday night that we would do a "dry run" of the presentation that will now be made on Feb 4th concerning the building that houses the Ossining Boat and Canoe Club.

Greg McWilliams has done a great job developing a plan for the long term concerning the building that houses the club.  

We believe it is essential that all the residents of Ossining understand the reasons why while seeing the plan.

Looking for feedback so please send it to this email address or sdonnelly@townofossining.com

next UTY meeting 01/29/14

Dear members:

Please read Susan Siegel summaries from her web-site she spends her own time to inform the residents of Yorktown about these meeting.

 

Our next meeting of the UTY will be held next Wednesday Jan. 29, 2014, at the Yorktown Town Hall at 7:30PM.

 

At our next meeting we must make a plan for the next year on issues effecting the taxpayers.



The Yorktown Town Board must be watched they are talking about a 9 or 10 percent increase in taxes for next year.

 

Another issue in front of the planning board and the town board is a home for recorving drug addicts a 482 Underhill avenue in Yorktown. The owner of the project have applied for a permit calling this home on their property as a convalescent home with no change in property taxes. Yorktown has 24 group home that are off the tax rolls, we the Yorktown Taxpayer picks up their taxes.

 

The enhanced S.T.A.R. program has increased the income level for seniors from under $79,050 dollars to $81,900. On your federal income tax form take line 37 minus line 15b if it's under $81,900 you are you can get the enhanced S.T.A.R.

 

Governor Cuomo passed a new law where veterans can get a school tax reduction in their school district if the school board passes a resolution. I am going to Monday's school board meeting at the middle school at 7:00PM and asked them to pass this resolution. I am asking any veterans in Yorktown and come with me to the school board meeting on this Monday Jan.27.

 

Please come to our next UTY meeting on Wednesday the 29th.We will have a full agenda and we can use your help. I must get a newsletter out to our members it has been a long time coming.

 

Ed Ciffone your President

Please call me at 245-1018 with your questions or concerns

SENATOR GREG BALL NOMINATES MAHOPAC HS STUDENT FOR FULL RIDE TO SUNY MARITIME
 
(Pictured left to right: Putnam County Chamber of Commerce Chairwoman Jennifer Maher, Senator Greg Ball, Luke Hands, John Hands, Carmel Town Supervisor Ken Schmitt.)
Brewster, N.Y. – 01/22/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, has announced that he has nominated Luke Hands of Mahopac High School to receive a four-year, full tuition scholarship to attend SUNY Maritime.
“It is my honor to ensure that Luke received a legislative scholarship to attend SUNY Maritime. SUNY Maritime is a premier center for higher education and recognized around the world as a leader in maritime related higher education,” said Senator Greg Ball. “Each state legislator is entitled to name a limited number of students to attend SUNY Maritime for a full ride. I encourage qualified and interested students, like Luke, to look at this institution and apply for legislative scholarship opportunities in the future. I wish Luke the best of luck at school and I am very excited to see the wonderful things he will accomplish.”
Luke Hands is currently a very active Senior at Mahopac High School. Luke plays lacrosse and runs both winter track and fall cross country, he is also a part of the Spanish club. Outside of school he has volunteered his time at Sycamore Park and also Putnam Hospital Center. In the Fall, Luke plans to study mechanical engineering at SUNY Maritime College.
In recognition of the Maritime College’s unique programs of study and proven 100% career placement rate, the New York State Legislature has approved the Cadet Appointment Program (CAP) at Maritime College whereby elected officials can nominate qualified New York State residents from across the state to attend the College and receive a four-year, full tuition scholarship for their undergraduate studies.
The State Legislature is proud of this commitment to the unique adventure that is a Maritime College education, an adventure that includes world travel and hands-on experience that is in demand. Through the Cadet Appointment Program, every four years each Senator may nominate 2 students in his/her district, each Member of the Assembly may nominate 1 student in his/her district and the Governor, Majority Leader of the Senate and Speaker of the Assembly may nominate 5 students each.

LEGISLATORS, VETS TO CUOMO: HONOR OUR HEROES, KEEP YOUR WORD
 
Albany, N.Y. – 01/24/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, is calling on Governor Cuomo to make good on his commitment to provide a 5% contract set aside for service-connected disabled veterans.
“Governor Cuomo, I applauded you for joining the NY Jobs for Heroes push when you committed to providing a 5% set aside for service-connected disabled veterans in your State of the State. You deserve the credit for supporting this worthwhile cause and we were excited to have your support. However, there must be some kind of oversight, because you seem to have forgotten to include this set aside, for service disabled veterans, in your budget. Disabled veterans have already given enough. It is time we join the 44 other states and the federal government that have already led the way, and get this done. No games. No gimmicks. Let’s just honor your initial commitment and give our heroes the 5% set aside they have rightfully earned,” said Senator Greg Ball.
The NY Jobs For Heroes Program will create a state contract preference for service-connected disabled veteran owned small businesses in New York State. The legislation mirrors the highly successful federal program that is presently established for a contract set aside. Currently over forty other states are successfully using this program.
Senator Greg Ball’s legislation has repeatedly passed in the Senate since it was introduced in 2007. New Yorkers can sign the Jobs For Heroes Petition by visiting: www.nysenate.gov/webform/petition-ny-jobs-heroes-program
“Governor Cuomo said it's time to show respect to the disabled veterans that have been so loyal to us and our country. I wholeheartedly agree, which is why I supported Senator Ball's legislation to award at least 5 percent of state contracts to small business owners who suffered a service-connected disability. We don't need a study to figure out if this is the right thing to do. We know it's the right thing to do. The time to take action is now,” said Senator Joseph A. Griffo (R-Rome).
“In his 2014 State of the State Address, Governor Cuomo called for a goal of five percent in the awarding of state contracts to disabled, veteran-owned small businesses. I agreed with this proposal and said so because helping our heroes is one of my top priorities. I am proud to join my colleague Senator Greg Ball in saying it is vitally important that this promise be honored and include – at least – a five percent set aside of state contracts for disabled veteran-owned small businesses in the State Budget. Our veterans served with honor, courage and distinction. New York needs to show its loyalty and deliver the support our veterans need,” said Kathleen A. Marchione (R,C-Halfmoon).
“We don't need a study to know veterans are suffering from an unemployment rate double that of their civilian counterpart. We've said look, enough is enough, we've got to step up, set new standards and make sure that the last place that our veterans are going when they come home from Afghanistan is to an unemployment line,” Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) said. “Without a policy like Jobs for Heroes program in place that's just going to continue.”
“It's about helping to get jobs for our injured veterans,” noted Bill Mahan, vice chairman of The American Legion's New York State Legislative  Committee. “The 5% set aside was not included in the governor's initial budget proposal. We hope that reflecting back on the service of our disabled veterans, Governor Cuomo and our legislative leaders will work together to provide this set aside.”
“It troubles me that Governor Cuomo would promise a 5% state contract preference set aside for disabled Veterans one week, and pull the rug out the next. It is shameful and I urge the Governor to work with Senator Greg Ball to ensure his promise actually makes it in his budget, veterans didn't go back on their word to defend our nation, Governor Cuomo shouldn't go back on his word to them,” said Bob Becker, Legislative Chairman of the New York State Council of Veterans Organizations.
“Promises made, promises kept. This motto can be said for all the brave men and women who have served in the United States Military. For Governor Cuomo? Dereliction of Duty. The Governor promised a 5% set aside for disabled Veterans in his State of the State but mere days later fails to include it in his budget. In the military dereliction of duty is considered dishonorable... that can be applied here,” said Eugene Parrotta, Chairman of Senator Greg Ball’s Veterans Advisory Council and two time Purple Heart Recipient.
“On behalf of the more than 300,000 Vietnam and Vietnam-era veterans, the largest single block of veterans in New York State’s population of almost one million veterans, the Vietnam Veterans of America New York State Council applauds Senator Greg Ball’s efforts to pass this much-needed legislation, and urges the Governor to include, in his final budget, the 5% set-aside he prescribed as a goal in his State of the State address,” said Ned D. Foote, President, Vietnam Veterans of America New York State Council.
“This bill would do so much for our service-connected disabled veterans. Much hope was given when the Governor promised a 5% set aside in his State of the State. Why did Governor Cuomo promise something to disabled Veterans one day, and forget about it the next? Please Governor Cuomo, I hope this is a misunderstanding and you correct this oversight on behalf of those who gave some and the some who gave all,” said William Nazario, NY State’s Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
“I am happy the governor is putting New York on a course that will see it – like most other states – establish a target for state contracts awarded to service-disabled, veteran-owned small business. His budget will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the state’s economy, but I worry service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses, such as my own, will not fully feel these positive impacts while the Division of Veterans Affairs conducts its study. Right now, veterans need actions, not studies,” said Tully Rinckey PLLC Founding Partner Mathew B. Tully, who is also a lieutenant colonel in the New York Army National Guard, Purple Heart recipient, and veteran of the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Last Tuesday I attended Senator Ball’s Jobs For Heroes Press Conference in Albany to thank Governor Cuomo for supporting a preference in state contracts for our service-connected disabled veterans. Now a week later, it seems he is going back on his promise, what happened,” said Tracy Griffin, Ladies Auxiliary, VFW Post 5491.

Cuomo vs Reality
Andrew Cuomo has been struggling with reality lately.  Last week, he told a radio host that conservatives "have no place" in the State of New York.  That's news to anyone who paid attention to last year's election results, in which Republicans swept key races across the State.

Earlier this week, a top Cuomo aide said that the Governor "respects the Second Amendment."  That's news to anyone who whose rights were infringed upon by Cuomo's SAFE Act, including New York's law enforcement officials, all of whom were turned into criminals overnight by the SAFE Act.

This illuminating article by E.J. McMahon in today's New York Post details the dubious differences between the hype in Cuomo's budget address and the reality of New York's economic woes.

Over the last decade, New York has lost over 328,000 people - more than any other state, and our economy is growing 25% slower than the Nation's.

We are still the most taxed, most regulated, least business-friendly, least economically free, least personally free state in America. 

Andrew Cuomo's hype just doesn't match that reality.

Read on for the whole story:

Cuomo's Hype vs. Reality
By E.J. McMahon
January 24, 2014 
 
'Building on Success" was the theme of Gov. Cuomo's election-year budget presentation in Albany this week. But while Cuomo boasts he's got New York headed in the right direction, the latest economic and demographic indicators suggest we still have a long way to go.
 
According to Census Bureau estimates released yesterday, the Empire State lost a net 104,470 residents to the rest of the country during the 12 months ending last July 1. That brings New York's net "domestic migration" loss since 2010 to 328,538 people - the largest outflow of residents any state saw in that period.
 
The migration numbers are a big reason why New York is about to drop from third to fourth place in the nation's state population rankings - behind Florida, where large numbers of New Yorkers have headed for decades.
 
On the heels of the Census numbers came the state Labor Department's monthly employment report, which also showed room for improvement. During the 12 months ending in December, New York's private-employment base grew 1.5 percent, markedly slower than the nation's 2 percent rate.
 
Measuring from the pre-recession peak at the end of 2007, compared to the national average, New York lost many fewer jobs during the recession and recovered more quickly to peak employment status. But the Empire State's overall job-growth pace since Cuomo took office has fallen below average.
 
There's a striking regional differential in the numbers. Boosted by jobs in tourism, entertainment and health care, New York City remains a bright spot. Even its high unemployment rate can be read as a positive, since it stems from more people entering the workforce. But north of the city, the picture gets gloomier.
 
To be sure, these trends are the products of multiple forces and can't be laid entirely on the doorstep of a governor who hasn't finished his first term - no matter how much he may like to exaggerate his impact.
 
But Cuomo certainly hasn't helped matters by, among other things, raising the minimum wage, failing to embrace significant regulatory reforms and continuing to stall on issuing rules to allow natural-gas hydro-fracking in the Marcellus shale region, which would create thousands of desperately needed jobs and growth for upstate's utterly stagnant Southern Tier.
 
So what will his proposed budget do to improve the situation?
 
The governor's chief answer is "tax relief" - a phrase that needs to be kept carefully in quotes when used in connection with Albany.
 
Cuomo's budget includes a pair of solidly pro-growth tax-policy changes, reforming and reducing both the state corporate tax and the estate tax. He also would eliminate what's left of corporate income tax on manufacturers- as long as they're based solely in upstate New York, that is.
 
Well over half of the money in his tax package is devoted to property-tax breaks for homeowners and renters, including a convoluted and temporary property-tax "freeze," available only to those living in jurisdictions that keep under the state property-tax cap. He's also proposing a permanent new "circuit breaker" tax credit - in reality, not so much a cut as a shift in taxes, from the local to state level.
 
To his credit, Cuomo is continuing to keep a tight lid on overall state spending, which he's holding to the inflation rate. But the governor's "tax relief" agenda is ultimately financed by billions of dollars in supposedly temporary tax and fee increases he has extended since taking office. The biggest of these tax hikes, generating $2.6 billion a year, falls on individuals who earn at least $1 million in New York, or couples who make at least $2 million here.
 
The irony, of course, is that the state budget is being portrayed on terms of Cuomo's resistance to Mayor de Blasio's proposal to raise the income tax in New York City. Yet their differences stem less from ideology than from Cuomo's well-founded practical concern that de Blasio's tax hike could be the final straw for many of the same high-income professionals, business owners and investors already footing the bill for much of the governor's state agenda.
 
Until New Yorkers stop heading for the exits, it's a bit early to declare "success."

ALBANY... At an Executive Committee Meeting in Albany yesterday, Chairman Thomas V.

"I am thrilled to announce Tom Dadey of Onondaga County as our new First Vice Chair," said New York State Republican Committee Chairman Ed Cox.  "Tom's breadth of experience and history of winning elections have been an asset to our committee on the county level and I look forward to working with him to grow our Party and promote fiscal responsibility and economic growth in the state of New York.  
 
"I would also like to thank outgoing First Vice Chair Vincent Reda for his extraordinary service over the past eight years. Chairman Reda has been an exemplary leader and I look forward to continuing to work with him as the Regional Vice Chair for the Hudson Valley."
 
Chairman Dadey's biography can be found here.

Statement by Chiaroscuro Group President Greg Pfundstein
 
January 23, 2104
 
"Mayor De Blasio has followed Governor Cuomo down the unfruitful path of vilifying large swaths of the New York public who disagree with him politically. I have the same questions for Mayor De Blasio that I have for Gov. Cuomo: Which New Yorkers have no place here?
 
"Only 17% of New Yorkers favor Governor Cuomo's and Mayor De Blasio's extreme position allowing abortion on demand for any reason until birth. Are these the only New Yorkers who have a place in the State of New York?"

Two Weeks Later…Sean Patrick Maloney Still Hasn’t Signed The ObamaCare Campaign Pledge
 
Party leaders say he will run on it. But he still hasn’t committed yet.
 
WASHINGTON – Two weeks ago, the National Republican Congressional Committee asked Sean Patrick Maloney to sign a pledge that he would campaign on ObamaCare in 2014. He still has yet to commit. So we ask yet again: will Sean Patrick Maloney pledge his continued support of ObamaCare and promise to run on the failed law—just as party leaders say he will?
 
Once again, by signing the “ObamaCare Campaign Pledge” (see below), Maloney can commit to voters that he will be honest about his support for ObamaCare, and that he agrees with Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz who said Democrats will run on ObamaCare in 2014.
 
“If Sean Patrick Maloney actually believes this disastrous law will help his district, he should pledge to campaign on it,said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Voters deserve to know that he is standing up for higher premiums and canceled plans. What is he waiting for?”

Can you believe what Cuomo is up to now?
In a radio interview last week, Andrew Cuomo said that conservatives "have no place in the state of New York," essentially declaring that people who don't agree with him should leave the state.

 
Unreal.
 
Tonight, most New Yorkers will be seeking shelter from the cold. But we know one person who won't be: Andrew Cuomo.
 
New York's Governor is in sunny Los Angeles, raising money with the Hollywood liberal glitterati.  Tickets to the shindig run as high as $50,000 - just a few thousand dollars below New Yorkers' median income. These are the types of people he wants to surround himself with - not hardworking New Yorkers who may happen to not agree with every policy of his.

Wait a minute - Didn't Andrew Cuomo just gave a big tax break to Hollywood companies that film in New York State?  He did.  And now he's in Hollywood to collect on that debt.  The New York Republican State Committee has called for an end to such corporate welfare in our Jobs Agenda.

It isn't easy to compete with the liberal Hollywood money machine, but we can do so with your help. 
 
Your donation of $1,000, $500, $100, $25, or whatever amount you can spare will allow the Republican Party to be well-funded and aggressive to ensure that hardworking New Yorkers aren't forced to leave New York because of the Governor's outdated policies.
 
You can donate here to make your secure contribution today.
 

One final note: among the Hollywood liberal elite toasting Andrew Cuomo tonight will be famed director Steven Spielberg.
 
That got us wondering: what would Steven Spielberg's movies have looked like if they had been written about Andrew Cuomo?  Here's what we came up with:   
 
-Empire of the Son
-1941: When New York Still Had 45 Seats in Congress 
-War of the Worlds: Cuomo v. Schneiderman
-Raiders of the General Fund: How to Balance a Budget When Nobody's Looking
-Close Encounters of the Worst Kind: Life Staffing an Assembly Democrat 
 
We would really appreciate a donation of $1,000, $500, $100, $25, or whatever amount you can spare by donating here. We need to send a strong message that just because someone may be so bold as to disagree with the Governor, they should not be forced out by his rhetoric or his policies.
