Script:
 
I read a great editorial in the New York Post this morning.  It challenged Governor Cuomo to debate me over his unforgivable accusations of civil rights violations in Westchester.
 
The Post is right.  Where I come from, if you make an outrageous accusation, you better have the guts to stand behind it. 
 
Me? I stand 100% behind my decision as county executive to defend hard working taxpayers in Westchester, of every race and religion, against the federal government's attempt to dismantle our local zoning laws. And, as governor, I'll stand with our communities against Washington bureaucrats.
 
Mr. Cuomo used to lead HUD, the federal agency that's attacking Westchester, and now both the town of Oyster Bay and Nassau County.  Maybe Mr. Cuomo is rooting for his old DC buddies?  If he won't debate, we may never know. 
 
What I do know is that when I asked Mr. Cuomo to intervene with HUD on behalf of  Westchester families, he didn't lift a finger.  He did nothing. 
 
In fact, as far as I know, he's never once offered his opinion on this most important issue facing Westchester County. Not as Attorney General when this settlement was signed by my predecessor. And not as Governor for the past four years when our county - his county, his hometown - was being threatened and bullied by the federal government to give up control of local zoning, even as we complied with the settlement -- ahead of schedule. 
 
We could have used Mr. Cuomo's help. But he wasn't there. 
 
Maybe he can tell us why in the debate.

To My Conservative friends in Bedford County, TN,
 
Replacing Obamacare with The Patient Centered Health Plan is my vision in running for US Senate in Tennessee.  While Washington seems to have grown tired of the fight and given up, you and I have NOT given up on saving our healthcare in the United States.

I would like to keep you updated and assure you that we are not alone in our fight.  By receiving this letter, you will be kept updated on activities and how you can remain involved in the most important issue in our lifetime.  Because replacing Obamacare with The Patient Centered Plan affects future generations so vastly, your involvement is crucial.

If you choose, click the unsubscribe button at the end of this message at any time and you will be removed from these updates, but I hope you will stay involved and updated.  We need you in the effort, but your privacy is important to me and I would miss your input and involvement.

Hayworth blasts Maloney’s vote against legislation that would have saved Hudson Valley from electricity rate spike

Chester, N.Y. – May 1, 2014 – Dr. Nan Hayworth blasted Congressman Sean Maloney today for his vote against legislation that could have spared the Hudson Valley from a federally imposed electricity rate increase, even as he protested the rate hike for the benefit of the media.

“If this legislation [HR 367] had been in place, Congress would have had the authority to oppose the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [FERC]’s unwarranted rate hike in the Hudson Valley,” explained Hayworth. “But our Representative voted against the bill, and we’ll be suffering as a result.”

Maloney’s appearance yesterday in front of FERC offices in Washington was just a “cynical publicity stunt,” according to Hayworth.

“If he’s serious about helping us, he should have given us the ability to stop regulatory stupidity. It isn’t as if FERC’s decision to jack up electricity prices in the Hudson Valley is somehow going to attract more utility plants here. All it’s really going to do is jack up a misery index that’s already sky-high.”

Hayworth continued: “Our Hudson Valley needs a member of Congress who knows and cares about us and not about his own publicity; who doesn’t say one thing and then do another when he thinks nobody’s looking. We need a Representative who will fight to keep energy prices down, bring our economy back from the brink, and create new jobs. It’s time to put an end to Maloney’s phony baloney.”

Assemblywoman Galef & Senator Carlucci Inform Constituents New Boating Safety Law Takes Effect Today
Galef, Carlucci Sponsored Landmark Legislation to Create
New Boating Safety Law
 
(May 1, 2014) Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and State Senator David Carlucci announced that a new boating safety law takes effect today, May 1st, in New York. This law was sponsored by Assemblywoman Galef and Senator Carlucci (Chapter 361 of 2013) and requires all operators of a mechanically propelled boat, born on or after 5/1/96, to hold a boating safety certificate, which would be granted following successful completion of an eight-hour boating safety course. New York State approved courses include those offered by New York State Parks, the U.S. Power Squadrons, or the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
 
Inexperienced and reckless boaters have caused many tragedies in the tri-state area in the past few years, increasing the rational that education leads to safer boating. While many boaters may believe they understand how to operate a vessel safely, often they are at a loss when encountering kayakers, wakes, and large vessels.  A boat operator making the slightest mistake can cause a tragedy, which has occurred all too often in the past couple of years. With the new bridge being built on the Hudson River near the current Tappan Zee Bridge, it is even more important that residents of the Hudson Valley have an understanding of vessel safety as this construction continues.
This new law implements a multi-year phase-in of boating safety certificate requirements for all boat operators.  It requires eighteen-year old boat operators to possess a boating safety certificate and expands with succeeding age groups in each successive year.
 
The legislation also provides that the Commissioner of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has the authority to develop and implement Internet-based (on-line) boating safety education courses if deemed warranted. More information on this new law and the available boating safety courses can be found on the New York State Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation’s website, http://www.nysparks.com/recreation/boating/education.aspx.
 
“I am thankful that now that this new law has taken effect, we will start to see the end of boating operators with no training endangering themselves, those on the boat with them, and other boaters,” said Assemblywoman Galef. “I have no doubt that this new law will ensure that boat operators receive an appropriate vessel safety education, helping to prevent and decrease the number of boating accidents on New York’s beautiful waterways.”
"This new law will enable New York State to finally protect its waterways and save countless lives,” said Senator Carlucci.  “For the first time ever, we have a framework in place that will ensure that every New Yorker will be properly educated and only the most experienced boaters allowed to navigate our waters.  I would like to thank Governor Cuomo for signing this bill into law and for his leadership on this important issue."

Galef Invites Elected School and Municipal Officials, as well as The Public,
to Her

Property Tax Freeze Forum

Speakers will discuss strategies for continued budget savings



      (May 2, 2014) Assemblywoman Sandy Galef is pleased to announce her
Property Tax Freeze Forum, which will feature Dede Scozzafava, the New York
State Deputy Secretary of State, and Mark Pattison, the Director of Local
Government Services for the Department of State, to be held at Cortlandt
Town Hall, 1 Heady Street, in Cortlandt Manor on Thursday, May 29th, from
4:00 - 6.00 p.m. During the forum, the trio will discuss strategies for the
continuation of budget savings, for municipalities, schools, and counties,
as well as the improvement of municipal efficiency.



"This forum should be a great resource for school and municipal officials,
in that it will allow them to learn from other examples statewide about ways
in which they can save money, time, and resources," said Assemblywoman
Galef. "We have so many layers of government in New York State. Why not work
together towards more efficient delivery of services that can save taxpayers
money?"

     

The discussion will allow anyone interested to learn from local school and
government efficiency success stories around the state, hear different
approaches to sharing and coordinating of services to save money, find out
about streamlining administrative/back-office service delivery, and discuss
grant programs currently available to assist with shared service
initiatives.  Galef encourages school, municipal, and county professionals
to join her.

         

      "We need to work together to find cost reductions that can provide
property savings for our taxpayers," concluded Galef.

Democratic Legislators Respond to Astorino’s “State of the County” Address
 
Video Message Released to Set the Record Straight
 
White Plains, NY – The Democratic caucus members of the Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) responded tonight to County Executive Rob Astorino’s “State of the County” address and released a video message in order to set the record straight and present an opposing viewpoint.
 
BOL Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining) delivers the video response, and notes that Astorino has not kept the promises he made over four years ago when he was running for election as County Executive.
 
Borgia says resident and business owners “are right to wonder why our property taxes are still the highest in the nation, and why Westchester hasn’t seen more economic growth over the past few years,” adding, “Before being elected, Mr. Astorino promised to cut county taxes twenty percent. He didn’t even come close. The fact is, he vetoed the historic two percent tax cut passed by the Board of Legislators.”
 
BOL Majority Whip Lyndon Williams (D-Mount Vernon) suggested that too many good ideas from the BOL, like aggressively moving ahead with shared services to cut costs for municipalities and school districts, have been ignored by the Astorino Administration.
 
“Government works best when there is a genuine collaboration between different branches, elected officials and municipalities,” said Williams. “This Administration failed to create a working relationship with the Board of Legislators, and as a result too many big problems stand in front of us, including not being in compliance with the Clean Water Act, which is risking millions of county taxpayer dollars in possible fines by the Environmental Protection Agency.”
 
Legislator Pete Harckham (D-North Salem), chair of the BOL Labor/Parks/Planning/Housing Committee, agreed with Williams, and said, “County Executive Astorino also needs to negotiate his differences with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and comply with the fair housing law before more financial pain is inflicted on our communities.”
 
[To view the BOL Democratic video response, click here.]
 
County Executive Astorino has failed the residents of Westchester in so many ways. In the video Borgia points to reckless and unwise layoffs of County employees with years of experience in order to outsource work to high-paid consultants while roads and bridges are crumbling. She also notes that in spite of the devastating flooding of the past few years, there is no flood mitigation plan from the County, and that the parks infrastructure has deteriorated noticeably as funds for repairs have diminished dramatically.
 
“We must do more to keep our roads, bridges and other infrastructure in good repair,” said MaryJane Shimsky (D-Hastings-on-Hudson), chair of the BOL Infrastructure Committee. “As every homeowner knows, waiting until things begin to fall apart is not a good way to live, and it costs a lot more money than keeping one’s property well-maintained.  Especially with record-low interest rates and a desperate need for jobs in the building trades, now is the time to fix our crumbling infrastructure; and we stand ready to do everything we can to make that happen.”
 
Echoing Borgia’s comments in the video that Astorino has put our communities at risk in order to advance his political goals and secure patronage jobs for his cronies, Legislator Alfreda Williams (D-Greenburgh), chair of the BOL Community Services Committee, said that the Astorino Administration has failed to adequately fund important programs in child care and mental health services, which she hopes will change.
 
“The investments we make to better the lives of those who need the help benefit our communities in so many ways,” said Williams. “But we need to increase our commitments, as need is being shown to increase as well.”
 
Legislator Ken Jenkins (D-Yonkers) said, “The Board of Legislators has proven that County taxes can be cut without sacrificing important services and programs that protect our residents. This is the type of good governance that people deserve.”
 
The Astorino Administration has not endeavored enough to create long-term prosperity for all of Westchester’s residents either, said Legislator Ben Boykin (D-White Plains), who added, “Westchester County needs to focus more at strengthening the regional economy, creating jobs and encouraging new businesses to settle here. We have seen just small steps in terms of economic growth these past few years. We have to do better.”
 
“One reason I was eager to serve on the Board of Legislators was to join in the growing effort to improve Westchester with smart community planning, increased energy efficiency and sustainable practices that reduce waste and cut costs,” said Legislator Catherine Parker (D-Rye), chair of the BOL Environment & Energy Committee. “Around the world there are municipalities and local governments that are carefully planning for the future and Westchester should be one of them.”
 
Westchester needs a vision for economic development that looks to the future while also recognizing the county’s rich past, says Borgia, who confirmed that the BOL will continue its work to “get Westchester back on track and provide a vibrant, growing economy that will strengthen critical services to prepare us for tomorrow.”

WITH ASTORINO MISSING IN ACTION, DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATORS INTRODUCE CALL FOR NEW COUNTY EXECUTIVE ELECTION
 
County Executive Astorino has violated County Charter by failing to devote “whole time” to duties of the Office.
 
Westchester is failing on health, housing, County finances while CE spends substantial time outside of the county pursuing personal political agenda
 
White Plains, NY – Eight Democratic caucus members of the Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) announced today the introduction of a resolution declaring the Office of County Executive vacant and calling for a special election pursuant to the County Charter.  
 
Section 110.01 of the County Charter explicitly requires that the County Executive “shall devote his whole time to the duties of the office.” But since November 2013, beginning two days after winning re-election to office, County Executive Astorino has made 37 different trips outside of Westchester County to engage in fundraising and campaign activities while running for governor.
 
“County Executive Astorino is not fulfilling the lawful requirements of his office,” said BOL Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining). “He is abdicating his sworn responsibilities if he’s hundreds of miles away from Westchester during working hours and talking to voters about why he wants to be governor. Enough is enough.”
 
The Democratic caucus members said they are particularly troubled by Astorino’s absences from Westchester because:
* While the County Executive was meeting with New Jersey Governor Christie in Arizona, Moody’s downgraded Westchester’s credit rating, which the County Executive had “guaranteed” would never happen (a remark made at Town Hall meeting in Armonk, June 2013)
* The ongoing dispute with the federal government over compliance with the 2009 Housing Settlement has jeopardized needed funding for Westchester residents, including CDBG, Lead Abatement and other federal monies
* The County Executive has failed to reach a contract agreement with 3000 county employees
* The County Executive has failed to properly manage the County’s pension system, borrowing $43 million in 2013, and $28 million in 2014 to meet annual ongoing pension obligations
* The County Executive’s chosen vendor for the reinvention of Playland halted the redevelopment review process on April 1, 2014, citing a lack of vision and by the County. The County Executive has stated the reinvention of Playland has been a priority of his since taking office (County Executive press release, August 2012) yet he was out of the county at a gun rally at this critical juncture in the process.
* The County Executive failed to comply with the Safe Water Drinking Act, resulting in a Department of Justice lawsuit that could potentially result in millions of dollars of fines to county taxpayers.  
“The people of Westchester didn’t vote for a part-time County Executive and the County Charter doesn’t allow for one,” said Legislator Ken Jenkins (D-Yonkers).
 
Added Legislator Alfreda Williams (D-Greenburgh), “Since Rob Astorino is more interested in Buffalo than he is in Westchester, the people of the county should have an opportunity to hire someone to run this county full-time, as required by the law.”
 
The resolution is below.
 
#####
 
 
Resolution on Full-Time County Executive
Sponsors:  Legislators Borgia, Boykin, Harckham, Jenkins, Parker, Shimsky, A. Williams, L. Williams
Whereas The laws of Westchester requires the County Executive to devote him- or herself full time to the responsibilities of the office; and 
Whereas Section 110.10 of the Charter of the County of Westchester states that the County Executive “shall devote his whole time to the duties of the office,”; and 
Whereas two days after being re-elected in November of 2014, the County Executive began the first of 37 trips outside of Westchester County to engage in political fundraising and campaign activity in relation to his run for Governor of New York including trips to Arizona, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, Buffalo, Long Island, Oswego, Binghamton, Syracuse, Tioga County, Columbia County, Staten Island, Troy, Watertown, Carthage, Massena, Potsdam, North Bangor, Malone, Lake Placid, Glens Falls, Montgomery County, Saratoga and Albany; and  
Whereas out-of-county trips constitute a substantial portion of his time that he is subsequently unable to devote to the duties of the office of County Executive; and 
Whereas while the County Executive has been away from Westchester County pursuing his political goals, several significant pieces of County business have gone unattended, as a result of his absence and lack of managerial oversight, including:
            * While the County Executive was meeting with New Jersey Governor Christie in Arizona, Moody’s downgraded Westchester’s credit rating, which the County Executive had “guaranteed” would never happen (Town Hall meeting in Armonk, June 2013)
            * The ongoing dispute with the federal government over compliance with the 2009 Housing Settlement has jeopardized needed funding for Westchester residents, including CDBG, Lead Abatement and other federal monies
            * The County Executive has failed to reach a contract agreement with 3000 county employees
            * The County Executive has failed to properly manage the County’s pension system, borrowing $43 million in 2013, and $28 million in 2014 to meet annual ongoing pension obligations
            * The County Executive’s chosen vendor for the reinvention of Playland halted the redevelopment review process on April 1, 2014, citing a lack of vision and by the County. The County Executive has stated the reinvention of Playland has been a priority of his since taking office (County Executive press release, August 2012) yet he was out of the county at a gun rally at this critical juncture in the process.
            * The County Executive failed to comply with the Safe Water Drinking Act, resulting in a Department of Justice lawsuit that could potentially result in millions of dollars of fines to county taxpayers. 
Whereas as a result of the County Executive’s focus on political matters outside Westchester, he has abdicated the duties of his office and failed to attend to significant issues impacting the health, safety, and welfare of Westchester residents, the financial integrity of the County, and the basic responsibilities of the position of County Executive; and
Whereas the County Executive receives a full-time salary of $160,760 paid for by the taxpayers of Westchester and is failing to meet his obligations and responsibilities of the duties of the office; therefore be it 
Resolved that due to his absence from his duties, the County Executive is in violation of Section 110.01 of the Westchester County Charter and is thereby in fact and in law vacating such office; and  
Resolved that pursuant to Section 110.51 paragraph 2 pertaining to such vacancy of the County Executive, the County shall hold a special election for County Executive within 90 days; and pending such special election and certification of the results thereof the Board of Legislators shall exercise its right to designate the head of a County department or any county elector to serve as Acting County Executive pending such special elections

***MEDIA ADVISORY***
***Saturday, May 3rd From 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM ***
TOMORROW: SENATOR BALL TO HOST SPECIAL NEEDS AWARENESS DAY
 
Brewster, N.Y. – 05/02/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) will host a Special Needs Awareness Day on Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Hudson Valley Cerebral Palsy Campus.
Over thirty vendors will provide awareness, information, and resources for families with special needs. Senator Greg Ball has worked to organize the event with his Special Needs Advisory Council.
“Making ends meet, raising a family and keeping everything together in New York State can be challenging. Those families trying to provide necessary services to family members with special needs face even greater hurdles and challenges. Compounding this problem, we are seeing cuts to the vital services and resources needed by these families,” said Senator Greg Ball. “Last year, as a member of the Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee, I was proud to work with my colleagues to restore cuts that were initially proposed by the Governor to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities. I hope this event helps shine a bright light on this issue and helps provide information and services to those who care for one of our most vulnerable populations.”
Senator David Carlucci, Chairman of the Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee, will also make a special appearance at the event.
Last year, Senator Greg Ball voted to restore up to $90 million in funding for the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). The restoration amends the 2013-14 Executive Budget, which originally called for reducing the agency’s budget by $90 million due to a $1.1 billion federal reduction in aid.
This funding will allow the agency to continue its vital mission to provide critical care to New Yorkers with developmental disabilities, while reversing decades of mismanagement and overpayments that resulted in a decline of services to this vulnerable population.
 
If you would like to more information about the event, or you would like to reserve a vendor table you can contact Suzy Rhodes at smrhodes@nysenate.gov or 845-279-3773.
What: Special Needs Awareness Day
When: Saturday, May 3rd from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

SENATOR GREG BALL PASSES BILL TO NAME HUDSON VALLEY BRIDGE IN HONOR OF VETS
Albany, N.Y. – 04/30/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, has announced that the New York State Senate has passed legislation that will designate a bridge in the Hudson Valley to honor local disabled veterans.
The legislation (S5974) will designate the bridge span on Bryant Pond road, crossing the Taconic state parkway, in Putnam County as the “Disabled American Veterans Bridge.”
“The men and women returning home from service to our country with injuries incurred in the line of duty are so worthy of this dedication,” said Senator Ball, “The Taconic State Parkway bridge at Bryant Pond Road will serve as a constant reminder that freedom is not free, it is paid for by the blood, sweat and tears of our service men and women.”
The Disabled American Veterans of Northern Westchester/Putnam Chapter Number 137 sent a letter to Senator Ball requesting New York State recognize the sacrifices the military has made in the course of their service for our nation. The letter noted statewide there are over 10,500 disabled veterans.
“As a disabled veteran myself, I fully understand the impact that the naming of this bridge would have. It is with great appreciation of the Senate and in particular Senator Greg Ball, that I laud this project,” said Eugene Parotta, Chairman of Senator Ball’s Veterans Advisory Council. “A constant reminder of our disabled veterans is always a good thing. Thanks to the determination of the Disabled American Veterans, we are hopeful this will come to fruition.”
The legislation has been sent to the Assembly, where Assemblywoman Sandy Galef is the sponsor.
Senator Greg Ball has also proposed a piece of legislation that will name the new the ‘Purple Heart Memorial Bridge'.
