Everyday New Yorkers Tell Governor Cuomo: Pay Your Taxes, Andrew!
New York--June 17th....New Yorkers have a message for Andrew Cuomo in a newly released campaign video telling the Governor to pay his taxes.
Recently published reports detail extensive renovations that were done to Governor Cuomo's home without obtaining necessary building permits, as well as his refusal to allow the tax assessor inside to properly value the home. New Yorkers--who pay the highest property taxes in the country--are speaking out against Governor Cuomo's failure to pay his fair share.

SOUTH SALEM (June 17) -- Former Assemblyman Bob Castelli (R-Lewisboro) held a formal press conference today launching his bid for the Republican nomination for State Senate in New York's 40th Senate District.  The seat is currently held by Sen. Greg Ball (R-Patterson), who is not running for re-election.

Castelli said his bid for the Republican nomination came following Sen. Ball's eleventh-hour announcement that he would not seek another term, in the wake of which Ball named his own preferred successor.  The timing of the announcement left no time for other candidates to make their case to the local and county committees for their endorsement.  Castelli maintains that this maneuver unjustly leaves primary voters out of the nomination process.

"Today I am announcing that I am a candidate in the Republican Primary for the State Senate seat in the 40th Senate District being vacated by Senator Ball.  Due to his untimely decision to leave office just two weeks ago, our party was thrown into flux when Sen. Ball and the party bosses in Albany decided to name his replacement, instead of letting the people decide, as is their right.  Therefore, I have decided to return that choice to the good men and women in the Party of Lincoln, and let them decide who will be their candidate," Castelli said.

Castelli had been considering a series of options in light of months of encouragement from friends and former constituents.  Along with possibly competing for the Republican nomination, supporters had been urging him to run for State Senate on a third-party ballot line, or to recapture his old Assembly seat in Westchester.

Castelli continued, "I want to thank the many people from Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess who encouraged me to run, many of whom I have had the honor of representing in my two terms in the State Assembly.  I look forward to many spirited debates with my opponent on the issues that concern us all."

Terrence Murphy Looks Forward To Earning Endorsement Of Voters In 40th
Candidate For New York State Senate Says Now Is The Time To Remove Any Remnants
of What Dragged New York Into Last Place
Terrence Murphy of Yorktown, Republican candidate for New York State Senate,
anticipates he will secure the most important endorsement, that being of the
voters of the 40th District.
Said Dr.
Murphy, "Thus far we have run the table with our grassroots campaign and secured
the endorsements of the three Republican Party county committees in the district
as well as that of every Conservative Party committee and the Independence
Party. Our campaign has the backing of mayors, town supervisors, local GOP
organizations and district leaders from every corner of the
When asked
about the prospects of a Republican primary, Dr. Murphy said, "I would much
rather utilize time and precious resources to defeat our radical liberal
Democratic opponent, but I absolutely respect the process and the right for
anyone to seek the nomination.
We've said
from day one that the 40th District is THE pivotal seat in the Senate if we are
to take a mathematical majority. The Governor has made his deal with the
extremists and they are hell bent on flipping the Senate to the extreme left,
which would raise taxes, kill job growth, provide amnesty to illegals and
legalize recreational drug use. Sadly Bob Castelli is a creature of Albany and
his record shows he is happy to do the bidding of Governor Cuomo, and the last
time I looked we had liberal special interests to doing just that. Bob has yet
to separate himself from the Cuomo regime, and honestly that should give
everyone great concern.
Bob is a
good man, a veteran and a public servant, but by the end of his last term in
Albany, New York was on a downward slide into the abyss we now find ourselves
in: We pay the highest taxes in America and we are the least business friendly
state in the nation.
The 40th
District is the Alamo for common sense in New York, it's our last best hope to
make us economically viable again, to hold back the forces of radicalism, and it
will be a bitter battle for our kids' futures.
I look
forward to bringing New York back from worst to first alongside our next
Governor Rob Astorino, the one and only man in that race whom I have ever

White Plains, NY - Westchester County Legislator Ken Jenkins' (D-Yonkers) lawsuit seeking to invalidate the contract with Sustainable Playland (SPI) signed by County Executive Rob Astorino has been moved to July 11th from June 19th.

Evan Inlaw, attorney for Legislator Ken Jenkins said the legal action will move forward. "The contract with SPI has not been terminated. County Attorney Robert Meehan has filed a motion with the court that has caused this change in date."

“Nan Hayworth’s impressive experiences as a doctor, mother, and businesswoman
make her an exceptional candidate to represent the people of the Hudson Valley.”

June 18, 2014

Chester, NY - Governor Mitt Romney has today announced his endorsement of Nan Hayworth for U.S. Congress in New York’s 18th Congressional District.

Governor Romney announced, “Nan Hayworth’s impressive experiences as a doctor, mother, and businesswoman make her an exceptional candidate to represent the people of the Hudson Valley. Nan is a doctor you can trust to help fix our broken health care system and a compassionate voice for those struggling in this difficult economy. I am proud to support Nan in her campaign to return to Congress.”

Nan stated, “Governor Romney’s support emboldens our effort to bring commonsense solutions to a dysfunctional Washington. His exceptional record in the private and public sectors make him a respected and principled leader of the Republican Party, and his endorsement energizes our campaign and its constituents. I am honored to have Governor Romney’s support.”

“The hardworking families of the Hudson Valley need a voice in Washington who will help break through the gridlock and put our country back on a path to prosperity,” said Hayworth.

Dr. Nan Hayworth is a candidate for Congress in the 18th Congressional District in New York’s Hudson Valley, which includes all of Orange and Putnam Counties as well as parts of Dutchess and Westchester Counties. An ophthalmologist for nearly 20 years, Dr. Hayworth was the only woman physician ever to serve as a Member to the US House of Representatives. She is endorsed by the Republican and Conservative Parties.

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
Buyer Bionics
I haven't ridden the new Thunderbolt at Coney Island yet, but I'm feeling like the marketplace is a more thrilling ride. Things are changing, not least the buyer, and in ways that make her/him harder to figure out and easier to see at the same time. Confused?
The digital media world, much of where "buyers" are forming new habits, is revealing some interesting quirks and cementing some important constants. On the digital side "buyers" are looking more like "considerers" by the use of search to identify and access product information, two-thirds of the "use model" so important to the exchange between buyer and seller.
" ... even non-considered purchases are getting considered today. People are researching fast-food burgers, razors and more, and they are largely following this pattern of using multiple channels, engaging with peers or family, and finally arriving at a point of decision. With so much choice, all purchases are considered. But some are more considered than others. Certainly, the new flooring will get more consideration than a taco, and a new computer more consideration than an everyday business suit. But the nature of the consumer relationship with media today means that there are a lot of places that a brand can trip--either with a bad marketing decision or simply because they are derailed by another exciting product along the pathway." Erica Martinez, The Gate Worldwide.
The point is well taken; "buyers" are confronted with more choices, a distinction made with purpose since too many choices (TMC) causes buyers and browsers alike to go blind. People can only manage 3-5 things effectively, under most circumstances. That notwithstanding, media channels are the places buyers find the products and services of their choice. And, the abundance of information makes it easy to have multiple impressions and harder to separate the good from the bad. That means that for as much as things are changing for the buyer he continues to relate to things emotionally and by the senses.
The Internet makes it easier to identify the variety of things buyers want, need, or are in the habit of buying, but converts very little in real dollars. The buyer considers more products than ever before-the opportunity in the Internet to present them and influence the sale-but still finds his motivation in the human reality that drives virtually all behavior, his "sense of things" that relates to wants, needs, and habit.
Where does he find the things he wants, needs, or is in the habit of buying; through media channels that present a comprehensive variety of them and which are most comfortable. Social media, for example, may have taken the perceptual limelight for its ubiquitous energy in connecting people. It has a profound affect on communications over the vast majority of things-some much more than others. But it is notoriously poor at converting advertising into sales.
In a recent study, Facebook and Twitter usage revealed a clear preference in subject matter. Entertainment, food and drink, lifestyle, technology, and sports dominate the interests of Facebook and Twitter users. Business and even fashion were distant to these. Yet, they may relate more to products than any other. It's no surprise why social media converts less than 2 percent of retail sales. It's why most brands have print as a foundation in their advertising budgets, responsible for over 50 percent of retail conversions.
"Eighty-five percent of consumers do business with companies they have strong emotional connections with, and are likely to spend more because of that connection," says Christine M. Barney, CEO of rbb Public Relations/rbb Digital Park. "However, to create a strong emotional connection with potential customers, you need to establish genuine relationships that put their needs first. The quickest route to customer trust is to find a way to make their lives better-but that's easier said than done," she added.
This emotional connection results from more than good product. It's the DNA of an organization, how it feels about its customers, and how well that energy is transferred to them. Customers have lots of choices, but for seemingly inexplicable reasons wish they were fewer and easier. Why else would they rely so heavily on the recommendations of trusted others. Clearly, "The heart has reasons of which reason knows nothing." Blaise Pascal

Statement from the Astorino Campaign on Latest Cuomo Attack Ad
June 19, 2014
"Governor Cuomo, who was just caught red handed cheating on his own property taxes, is now running television ads across New York State about Westchester's status as the county with the highest property taxes in America. We are thrilled that the governor is finally bringing this up, because those high taxes are directly driven by his failure as governor.
"County Executive Astorino has shrunk the size of Westchester's government, frozen or lowered its tax levy every year he's been in office, and lowered the size of its budget in real dollars.  Westchester County spends less today than it did four-and-a-half years ago when Mr. Astorino was elected.
"So if Astorino shrunk government, reduced spending, and cut the tax levy, how can property taxes be going up?  The answer is simple: Governor Cuomo's Albany.
"Governor Cuomo's state mandates raid the resources of counties, cities, towns, villages, and school districts. The cost of Cuomo's unfunded mandates are rising by the year and it is stretching to the point of breaking the ability of local governments to provide basic services.
"In Westchester County today, 85 cents of every tax dollar goes to pay for Mr. Cuomo's mandates. In other places, like Rockland County, that percentage exceeds 100%.  So when Governor Cuomo talks about high property taxes, he is talking about his own record, except, of course, in paying his own fair share of taxes in the Town of New Castle." --Jessica Proud, Astorino for Governor spokeswoman
Press Note: Governor Cuomo is on record saying he splits the cost of property taxes with his partner, Sandra Lee.   Any failure to pay their fair share is, itself, shared.

ICYMI: Our Incredible Shrinking Governor
Contact: David Laska
In case you missed it, the New York Post had a great editorial this morning about Andrew Cuomo letting down New York's school children by abandoning the education tax credit, even after he promised to pass it this session.
The education tax credit provides an incentive to private citizens to make donations to public and independent schools and is widely supported by all but the most extreme elements of the Democratic party.  
NYGOP Chair Ed Cox said:
"Andrew Cuomo broke his promise to New York's charter, parochial, orthodox and other independent schools and betrayed New York's children. These schools have proved to be an effective first rung on the ladder of upward social mobility, and Cuomo's cowardice just made it more difficult for them to raise money."
Here's the Post editorial:
The New York Post Editorial Board
June 19, 2014

How Albany's mighty do fall.
The latest case? Gov. Cuomo.
When the governor won election in 2010, he came to office with powerful prospects.
But now he's apparently too weak to push through an education tax credit supported by majorities in both chambers of the state Legislature - not to mention a diverse alliance of religious and racial groups, city dwellers and suburbanites, upstaters and downstaters, unions and businesses.
In short, as our lawmakers wrap up their 2014 session, a bill to offer tax credits to New Yorkers who donate to private-school scholarship funds or public-school programs looks dead. Even though Cuomo had assured Timothy Cardinal Dolan and other bishops it was a done deal.
Hard to see how this show of weakness will help Gov. Cuomo the Younger fulfill his dreams of eclipsing his dad, Gov. Mario Cuomo, in terms of big achievements - and perhaps even running for president, as Mario famously declined to do.
No doubt one big reason for Andrew's cave-in is that he fears his left flank: the radical Working Families Party - and an obscure leftist professor named Zephyr Teachout, who's challenging him in the Democratic primary.
Beholden to the teachers unions, both the WFP and Teachout oppose measures that would give New York parents more and better schools for their children.
The human tragedy, of course, is who will pay the price for Cuomo's alliance with the Working Families Party & Co.: i.e., the children of actual working families, who have no avenues of escape from rotten public schools where they aren't learning.
So much for the governor who likes to call himself "the students' lobbyist."

Last month I had the honor of inducting 19 extraordinary women into the 3rd Annual Women of Distinction Hall of Fame. This was a project I launched in recognition of Women’s History Month and inspired by the accomplished and outstanding women I have had the privilege of collaborating with through my current tenure serving the people of the 40th Senate District.
These leaders are all extraordinary and have done so much for our community! While all those that were honored have worked and volunteered without want of recognition, their efforts have not gone without notice or appreciation. Within their communities, each of these women honored has effected meaningful change in the lives of those whom they sought to improve.
The diversity and depth of their work speaks to the amount of time and dedication each has volunteered on behalf of and in support of a simple truth; that all change is local. Each took it upon herself to respond to some compelling community need. These women did not wait or idle when the opportunity for real change presented itself. Instead, each used her own unique talents and skills to respond to an issue or challenge in her community that merited action. Their passion and commitment points to the fact that individuals, when acting with conviction, can surmount whatever challenges put in their paths and change and improve lives. These women are tangible proof of the integrity and compassion of the human spirit.
My office honors these women and the strength of their spirits. Their deeds and actions are what inspire future generations of young women and men to take care of their communities, to be good stewards of the places they call home and those who live in it.
I would like to thank all of our community partners that made this wonderful event possible, especially Nick and John and the entire Crecco family from Villa Barone Hilltop Manor for graciously allowing us to use their beautiful venue in Mahopac at no charge. I would also like to thank Hannaford Supermarket of Carmel and Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard in North Salem for donating food and refreshments that were enjoyed after the ceremony.
I congratulate all of those nominated and honored, and I am humbled by their tremendous work and deeds. What they have done individually is significant, but what they have accomplished collectively is truly profound.

Albany, N.Y. – 6/18/14 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) welcomed the New York Rangers to Albany on Wednesday morning to congratulate them on a wonderful season.


General Manager Glen Sather, Assistant General Manager Jim Schoenfeld and team members Dominic Moore, Martin St. Louis and Derek Stepan joined the New York State Legislature at the State Capitol in Albany, NY.


“I was happy to stand with members of the New York Rangers and congratulate them on an excellent season. They proved the true definition of a New Yorker, succeeding when many thought they couldn’t, making it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals,” said Senator Greg Ball. “We look forward to them building on this year’s success, to bring The Cup home to New York next year!”

Brewster, N.Y. – 06/19/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, has received a $10,000 donation from Whispering Pine Landscape Supply in Yorktown, NY for the remodeling of local Vietnam War Veteran Dan Flanigan’s home.


Senator Ball and Purple Heart Homes are currently working to upgrade the home of Private Daniel Flanigan, a 100 percent service-connected disabled Vietnam veteran who lives in Pawling. Last week, Whispering Pine Landscape Supply contacted Senator Ball’s office and announced they will be donating $10,000 to the project.


“I am beyond grateful for this generous donation from Whispering Pine. It is contributions such as this that will make this project a success,” said Senator Greg Ball. “This money will help give a disabled war veteran the home he so greatly deserves, and improve his living situation dramatically.” 


“Our company decided last year that we wanted to raise money for a local veteran. When we heard about Dan Flanigan, it made perfect sense that we would donate the funds we raise to his house renovations. It is great to see Senator Ball team up with Purple Heart Homes for this project, and I am very proud to be a part of such a wonderful cause,” said Brad Kuck of Whispering Pine Landscape Supply.


If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make a check payable to Purple Heart Homes and send to Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union: 1620 New York 22, Brewster, NY 10509 or visit:
