Democratic Westchester Legislators Harckham and Jenkins

Call for Hearings on Astorino’s Neglect of County Executive Responsibilities and $30 K in Outside Consulting Earnings

 

Will Ask If County Ethics Board Signed Off on Astorino’s Second Job

 

White Plains, NY – Westchester County Legislators Pete Harckham (D-North Salem) and Ken Jenkins (D-Yonkers) announced today their intention to hold hearings on the subject of Rob Astorino’s neglect of his County Executive responsibilities and $30K in “hidden” outside consulting earnings.

Legislators Harckham and Jenkins spoke to reporters during an audio press conference this afternoon.

The call for hearings comes on the heels of a published newspaper report that County Executive Astorino earned about $30,000 a year as a consultant for a major media corporation, Connecticut-based Townsquare Media, which owns 312 radio stations, over 30 of which are located in upstate New York.

A number of concerned officials and leaders, including Harckham and Jenkins, blasted Astorino in February 2014 for spending too much of his time outside of Westchester County raising money and campaigning rather than tending to the responsibilities of his job in Westchester.

Meanwhile, the Westchester County Charter clearly states the County Executive should devote his full-time to the position.

“I think it’s time for County Executive Astorino to come clean about a number of serious issues, including how much time each week he is devoting to campaigning and working as an outside consultant,” said Harckham. “Westchester residents deserve to know whether their County Executive is truly ‘on the job’ or not.”

 

County Executive Astorino receives an annual salary of $160,000 in his Westchester position.

“The County Executive should be fully in charge of the Administrative branch of government in Westchester, and it is hard to believe he is doing so under the present circumstances,” said Jenkins. “The news that the County Executive is moonlighting at a second job raises questions about whether government resources are being used to effectuate his outside work. One thing is for sure: Westchester taxpayers aren’t paying for a part-time County Executive.”

Also, Jenkins and Harckham said they will seek to find out if Astorino received permission or a waiver from the Westchester County Ethics Board to have a second job while fulfilling his responsibilities as Westchester County Executive.

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
Sold on Native Advertising
 
Change is frightening. Habits are as hard in forming as in breaking. These simple truths explain a lot of things, perhaps, even the confusion over and use of "native advertising" as an alternative to so-called traditional advertising.
 
Native advertising is content that speaks to a particular reader's actual experience and relies more on the graphic solution than the ad copy, which most often looks like an advertorial. Traditionally advertising positions "frequency, reach, and a good offer" above all else and relies more heavily on multiple impressions over time to succeed.
 
It all may seem straightforward enough, but the nuance in connecting with the buyer in ways that s/he both uses the media platform and relates by their experience with the product category is still gaining clarity. Is it new, or just a new twist on the traditional advertorial model, and why the fuss?
 
"1:1 marketing," a concept given preternatural gloss by a rebirth in other terms, is both at issue in the buyer/seller exchange and the advantage sellers seek in skirting an increasingly dispassionate view (in buyers) of being sold. Having a conversation with the customer over a sincere interest in product trumps all other methods of forming this critical market partnership. "Tell" them, don't "sell" them is the new mantra.
 
People are relational by nature. Though not without fears, this may be the primary reason we so often prefer the company of a TV to live out our dreams than the company of others. 
 
Notwithstanding, we are made as social beings. As such, it's more natural to form partnerships when in the company of others. This is primarily why the Internet, which relies most on impressions to win buyers, pales by comparison to word of mouth, local shopping, and even print. Why, because the constant barrage of information and ads that target them wears out buyers, and are often indifferent to their specific wants, needs, or buying habits.
 
Buyers increasingly prefer to be "related to" in efforts to satisfy their needs. It's more natural to the human condition to find likeness in others and things. Our uniqueness colors the world we live in, extending into all aspects of our decision-making and product and service preferences.
 
To succeed in this model requires relevant content, graphics and copy (under circumstances) that warm us to the messages. We are less inclined to pop a second bottle of wine while dining at home. But when out with friends the likelihood of a second bottle increases. When the restaurant advertises a free bottle on Thursday nights, it relates directly to our wants and our mood. That's good marketing.
 
It's really never been different, but the easy availability of information has cost us in quality content, the reason a majority of media buyers remain cautious about the use of native advertising. Questions over adequate measurement of the results and its programmatic delivery have caused 27 percent of them to stay away, though 68 percent say they believe in it. At nearly $3 billion this year, native advertising has landed solidly as the de facto ad format on mobile and growing on the desktop, according to J.P. Morgan's annual "Nothing but Net" report.
 
Simply, buyers need to get to "go" as quickly as possible in a marketplace that is increasingly immune to information overload. Native advertising, even when delivered via programmatic methods, excites buyers for the quality content that is both engaging and relevant. Audience is key, but important too is the context in which the ad lives. Make it attractive and buyers will come.

We thought you'd be interested in this op-ed by Rob Astorino in today's New York Post.
New York State just won a multi-billion dollar windfall from BNP Paribas, and we can use that money to bolster our deteriorating infrastructure.
So far, Andrew Cuomo has refused to tell us how he's going to pay for a new Tappan Zee Bridge.  Fiscal gimmicks around the TZB date all the way back to the Mario Cuomo administration, but we can reap real long-term benefits from this infusion of cash.
Here's the piece:

The right way to spend New York's BNP Paribas windfall 

By Rob Astorino
The New York Post
July 14, 2014
 
New York state stands to reap billions from the fines paid by French banking giant BNP Paribas to settle money-laundering charges. The one-time windfall should go to address our urgent capital-construction needs, including the Tappan Zee Bridge replacement - and to undoing a decades-old fiscal gimmick that continues to hamstring the Thruway Authority.
 
BNP Paribas' settlement with the Justice Department, the Manhattan DA's office and state regulators should yield $2.2 billion to $3.2 billion for the state, says E.J. McMahon of the Empire Center. This huge "one-shot" can make a permanent difference - if used wisely.
 
I've asked a basic question from the start of my campaign for governor: Is New York winning or losing? We stand at or near the bottom in rankings among the 50 states. We have the highest taxes, the worst business climate and the highest energy costs.  
Over 400,000 people have fled New York in just the past four years.
 
We need to take many actions to fix what ails New York's economy. One urgent task is to fix our deteriorating road, bridge and mass-transit infrastructure. Whether you are a straphanger or a rail commuter downstate or a motorist traveling rutted highways and rusting bridges upstate, the problem is clear.
 
The BNP Paribas windfall should be intelligently applied to urgent road and transit capital programs so that New Yorkers get a long-term benefit from this sudden infusion of money.
 
The Tappan Zee Bridge replacement is an urgent need. Gov. Cuomo has thus far refused to reveal how he plans to pay for the project - and the obvious reason is that he doesn't want to tell people what new bridge tolls will be.
 
Worse, he wants to tap into a state fund intended for municipal water and sewer environmental projects to redirect over $500 million in short-term loans for the Tappan Zee project. It remains to be seen whether the federal EPA or other state officials will agree to this unwise scheme.
 
A better approach would be for Cuomo to fix his father's mistake.
 
Back in 1992, the state under then-Gov. Mario Cuomo transferred responsibility for the state canal system from the state general-fund budget to the Thruway Authority. This was a gimmick to tide Albany over one of its recurring fiscal crises.
 
Ever since, the gimmick has diverted Thruway motorist tolls to pay for the canal. Since 1992, over $1.6 billion in toll money paid by Thruway users has gone to canal operations and capital improvements.
 
It's past time to return the canal to the state's general-fund budget. Thruway tolls should only go for Thruway projects like the Tappan Zee Bridge.
 
The settlement windfall allows the state to take the canal back and repay the Thruway for two decades of capital borrowings incurred for the canal.
 
The Thruway would then have $75 million to $100 million each year to help pay for the bridge - which would also allow us to avoid new gimmicks like stealing money from the environmental fund.
 
The remaining settlement money - about $2.8 billion, once the canal debt is repaid - can then go to the state's road and transit capital plans.
 
Fixing New York's infrastructure is a necessary step in fixing New York's economy. We shouldn't let this opportunity pass.
 
Robert P. Astorino is the Westchester county executive and the Republican candidate for New York governor.
