UNDER
CORRUPTION CLOUD, ANDREW CUOMO RUNNING
'MOST
NEGATIVE GOVERNOR'S RACE IN NEW YORK HISTORY'
------
Cuomo
and Surrogates Dropped in Excess of $1 Million Last Week Alone
-----
In
Words of his Own Consultant: Cuomo is "willing to say anything, do anything --
including distorting the facts -- to win an election.''  04/12/02  
New
York--Aug. 4...
No
gubernatorial candidate in New York history has spent as much money this early
throwing mud at his opponent as Governor Andrew Cuomo has against Westchester
County Executive Rob Astorino, the Astorino campaign today charged.

 
Mr.
Cuomo and his surrogates have spent approximately
$9.5
million to date in mostly negative ads ($6,152,509 from the Cuomo campaign and
$3,345,390 from Democratic State Committee), including more than $1 million in
the past week alone (
$564,863
from NY State Dems, 8/2-8/8; $520,003 from Cuomo campaign, 8/2-8/8).

 
"Andrew
Cuomo is in the crosshairs of a federal probe, so he's throwing mud at a furious
rate at Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, who has twice won election in
heavily Democratic Westchester by a double-digit margin," said Astorino
spokeswoman Jessica Proud. "Don't take it from us; take it from one of Mr.
Cuomo's own consultants who noted in 2002, when Mr. Cuomo was viciously
attacking respected former state comptroller Carl McCall,
 "[Cuomo]
is willing to say anything, do anything -- including distorting the facts -- to
win an election.''
 (New York Times, Apr. 12, 2002)

 
"New
York voters are not dumb," Ms. Proud continued. "They can spot a governor in
freefall, desperate to point a finger somewhere -- anywhere -- on the way down.
These television ads only remind New Yorkers of how much trouble Mr. Cuomo is
facing in a state with the highest taxes and the worst economic outlook in
America.

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
The Fervor of Enterprise
Business and life have a tendency to confront us with the reality of our condition-good or bad. Ultimately, we are revealed for who we are no matter how hard we try to conceal it. The pattern of behavior that characterizes each of us is more often some part the person we don't like and some part the one we do. Strangely, the objective view of oneself is lost in the mix.

The workaday world requires a heads-down approach at times. Much of what gets done is done by an individual in time he alone commands for its completion. That we are capable of processing (completely) only one thing at a time forms the biochemical predisposition of both our limitations and our opportunities. Objectivity, were it truly the vaunted mantle of more than our "ideal image," would not so easily be sacrificed for our typical expressions of emotion and thought, the subjective view that produces most decisions.

Business leaders are most often viewed as those who see things clearly, with narrow focus, and who can do the things that deliver opportunity for stakeholders. The quality displayed is often portrayed as a "hard driving man." Not coincidentally, a number of women CEOs I've worked with had the steel of nails in their approach that was easily a match for the Jack Welches of the world (former CEO of General Electric). The practice is to "mark and move on"; the tracking of a productive person.

Business owners and leaders are equals in their fervor over enterprise, a dyad matched by Adam Smith's economic foundation stones, as told in the first pages of "The Wealth of Nations."

The annual labour of every nation is the fund which originally supplies it with all the necessities and conveniences of life which it annually consumes, and which consists always either in the immediate produce of that labour, or what is purchased from that produce from other nations.

According therefore, as this produce, or what is purchased with it, bears a greater or smaller proportion to the number of those who are to consume it, the nation will be better or worse supplied with all the necessities and conveniences for which it has occasion.

But this proportion in every nation must be regulated by two different circumstances; first by the skill, dexterity, and judgment with which its labour is generally applied, and, secondly, by the proportion between the number of those who are employed in useful labour, and that of those who are not so employed. Whatever be the soil, climate, or extent of territory of any particular nation, the abundance or scantiness of its annual supply must, in that particular situation, depend on those circumstances.

The abundance or scantiness of this supply too seems to depend more upon the former of those two circumstances than upon the latter.

Few of that era, or this, considered economic pari passu with growth of the state, especially among the effulgent of the day, Karl Marx notwithstanding. By the mark of Smith's pen commerce has gained the energy for an enterprise mind-set, and no science or literature or math has equaled its effect on the world, no less capitalism. But Smith's assertion that labor is the font of all that is produced rings true. We are people first, then the engineers of all else.

BIRCHEZ ASSOCIATES LAUNCHES GRANT PROGRAM
 
 

First grants will be awarded in October


Kingston, N.Y. – (July 28, 2014) Birchez Associates announced today the establishment of the Birchez Foundation -- a grant program that will benefit organizations who provide services that support senior citizens, U.S. military veterans, education and the environment. The first grants will be announced in October.



"Contributing to the towns and villages where we build Birchez communities has always been one of the company’s top priorities," said Steven Aaron, Founder and Managing Partner of Birchez Associates. "The Birchez Foundation will allow us to reach a new level of corporate giving. I feel very strongly about the need to support the community groups and programs that enhance the quality of life."



The Birchez Foundation will be administered in concert with the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, an independent philanthropic organization that serves numerous counties throughout the region.

The Birchez Foundation will give preference to programs that concentrate on four areas of focus:

Providing services to senior citizens
Advocacy for U.S. Military veterans
Supporting educational programs
Preserving or improving the environment

 


-more-



 

-continued-


 

"We feel a great obligation to help fund programs that deliver critical services to senior citizens, educational organizations and military veterans -- the cornerstones of local communities," said Aaron. "Preserving the Hudson Valley’s precious environment is one of our company’s trademarks and we believe our communities enhance the beauty of their neighborhoods."



A volunteer advisory committee comprised of community and business leaders will help determine the allocation of Foundation grant money to worthy organizations. The members of the committee will be announced soon.



Birchez Foundation grants will be awarded bi-annually. Grants will provide monies for start-up support/seed money, organizational capacity building or technical assistance.

  Statement by Chemung County Sheriff and 
Candidate for Lt. Governor Chris Moss

August 1, 2014

"Kathy Hochul claimed yesterday that statements by Moreland Commission member William Fitzpatrick must be honest because he's from a different political party than Governor Cuomo.  That statement was proved preposterous by The New York Post and other news outlets today when they reported that Mr. Fitzpatrick's wife is up for judicial appointment next year from -- you guessed it -- Andrew Cuomo.  

"These under-the-radar relationships are no surprise to me in my capacity as a law enforcement official. New York government has become a web of self interest, and every turned stone reveals another cozy deal. I therefore strongly echo County Executive Astorino's call for a special state prosecutor to be appointed to look into state crimes that may have been broken by the Cuomo Administration in their interference with Moreland.  No governor of New York State is above the law."

Dear Neighbor,
Seniors looking to stretch their food budgets – and savor the season’s abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables – may be entitled to a Farmers Market Checkbook.
To be eligible for this $20 value, people must be 60 or older and (1) have a monthly income at or below $1,800 for a single person; $2,426 for a couple, or (2) currently receive or be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income, public assistance or the Section 8 housing subsidy.
The purpose of the Farmers Market Checkbook is to economically support local farmers and give low-income older adults access to local fresh produce.
The checkbooks will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis during July and August at designated senior nutrition programs while supplies last. Call the nutrition programs to learn the dates and times of distribution. Visit www.westchestergov.com/seniors for the names, locations and telephone numbers of the designated programs and for tips about how to shop at a farmers market.
Applicants must come in person to sign the statement of eligibility and proof of age and residency are required. Only one checkbook will be distributed per household per season.
The coupons are valid at any participating farmers markets statewide and locally at approved markets throughout the county.  Visit www.westchestergov.com/seniors for a list of these markets.
The Senior Farmers Market Program is funded through the Food and Nutrition Service Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Markets in cooperation with the N.Y. State Office for the Aging, the N.Y. State Department of Agriculture and Markets and the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services.
This year DSPS was allocated 3,320 checkbooks by the state valued at $66,400.  They are distributed to the senior nutrition programs in 23 municipalities throughout Westchester.  Because the number of booklets the state receives to distribute just covers about one-tenth of all eligible seniors, DSPS makes every effort to allocate them to best benefit both seniors and the local economy.
Sincerely,

ICYMI: Newsday - Blakeman demands Rice release Moreland E-mails
In case you missed it, Bruce Blakeman, the Republican nominee for Congress in New York's 4th District, demanded that Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice release any and all correspondence from her time as Co-Chair of the scandal-plagued Moreland Commission on Corruption.

In a statement, Blakeman said, "Kathleen Rice has refused to comment on allegations that the Moreland Commission she co-chaired was influenced by political donors and the Governor to avoid investigations that not only lead to the Governor's donors but also to hers."

This is a must read! Check it out and then share it with your friends, family and neighbors.

Here's the article:

Blakeman to Rice: Release Emails from stint on Corruption Panel
by Laura Figueroa
July 31, 2014 

Republican congressional candidate Bruce Blakeman on Thursday called on his Democratic opponent Kathleen Rice to release all emails from her time as a co-chair of a state anti-corruption commission.

At a news conference in Mineola, Blakeman, who faces Rice for the 4th Congressional District seat of retiring Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), took aim at her role with the Moreland Commission on public corruption.

A New York Times article last week said the office of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who appointed the 25-member panel, "deeply compromised" the commission's work by "objecting" when it focused on groups with political ties to Cuomo.

Cuomo has denied interfering with the commission, saying his administration offered only advice.

"In our search for the truth, we are asking [Rice] . . . to break her silence and tell the public exactly what she knew regarding any political interference," Blakeman said.

Eric Phillips, campaign spokesman for Rice, the Nassau district attorney, said in a statement: "The fact that Bruce Blakeman is asking Kathleen Rice to deeply compromise an ongoing federal investigation that she is assisting shows you just how deep into the gutter Blakeman's career as a political insider has fallen. This is further proof that the more Bruce Blakeman opens his mouth, the better Kathleen Rice's chances are of winning."

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara's office has been investigating the shutdown of the commission, and pursuing unfinished corruption cases.

Blakeman said a Rice email quoted in the Times article suggested she had knowledge of possible interference by the Cuomo administration.

In an Aug. 28, 2013, email to the commission's two other co-chairs, Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick and attorney Milton Williams, Rice noted that the commission's Chief of Investigations E. Danya Perry had shared concerns with her about resistance she had encountered from the panel's executive director when she sought to subpoena the Real Estate Board of New York.

"Danya can't be prevented from doing the most basic and noncontroversial aspects of her job," Rice wrote. "Thoughts??"

"If Kathleen Rice knew that crimes were being committed, or at the very least allegations of unethical conduct, she as a prosecutor has an absolute, non-delegable legal obligation to disclose that conduct immediately to the state attorney general or the United States attorney," Blakeman said.

Phillips declined to comment on Rice's email, citing "the ongoing probe." Rice stepped down from the commission in January after announcing she was running for Congress

New York, New York -- August 4, 2014 -- New York State Senator Martin Golden has endorsed Nick Di iorio in his campaign for Congress.

State Senator Golden has represented New York's 22nd State Senate District (southern Brooklyn) since 2003. Golden remarked: "I endorse Nick Di iorio for Congress. Williamsburg and Greenpoint need Nick's energy and vision. His experience in healthcare is valuable in a time when entitlement programs affect so many people. His prior experience in ministry will help him form alliances to get things done in Washington."

Di iorio has also received support from members of the Republican Party, Independence Party, Libertarian Party, and Conservative Party.

The boil water advisory for residents of a section of the Village of Ossining and the unincorporated area of the Town of Ossining who are served by the Village of Ossining Water Department has been lifted by the Westchester County Department of Health.Water sample results were satisfactory.
 
Since Friday, approximately 5,000 people in the affected area, which included streets as far west as Route 9; as far east as Morningside Drive; as far north as Hawkes Avenue at Bridle Path Road and as far south as Macy Road at Wolden Road, were strongly advised to boil their water before drinking it or using it to prepare food.

DiNapoli's allegiance to these constituencies significantly reduces the effectiveness and independence of the State Comptroller's Office, specifically when looking at the real causes of the State's and the local governments' fiscal challenges, including unsustainable costs and taxes.
 
Last Thursday the NY Post ran an editorial asking "Who's watching the watchdogs?" In it they note that Tom DiNapoli is praising Mayor de Blasio by telling him that he's "...off to a great start..." The editorial then raises a number of very good issues related to the NY City budget (quotes are from the editorial):
  • The biggest issue is that "...the actual numbers just released from DiNapoli's office suggest the city is reverting back to those same dangerous practices[" "...that nearly sunk it in the'70s." Further, "...the numbers confirm what the Post and others fear: New Yorkers will be paying billions long into the future for raises de Blasio just gave the unions for work done as far back as 2008."
  • At the same time, "...these same workers won't pay a dime toward their health care...."
  • The costs will be pushed out far into the future "...the biggest hits from de Blasio's gift won't come until at least 2019."
All of this translates to a return of the failed budgeting practices of the past. In the 1970's the city got into deep trouble by using these same tactics, pushing large costs into the distant future. The Manhattan Institute's Nicole Gelinas says "We're kicking billions in back pay into the future," This is all while Tom DiNapoli is incapable of effectively performing his watchdog duties.
 
But the day will come when the bill is due. When that day comes, everyone will be looking around to find who to blame, but the culprits will be gone....and worse yet, the taxpayers will have to pay the bill! And a large bill it will be, putting a direct hit onto the taxpayers of New York City. And, like the 1970s, it could even affect New York State.
 
What's needed now is a real watchdog. New York needs someone who will speak out to warn of fiscal gimmickry and slight-of-hand tricks now to prevent future disasters and large tax increases. That someone is not the lap dog Tom DiNapoli. That someone is a real watchdog, Bob Antonacci.
 
Don't settle for a Comptroller who is ignoring the realities and future impacts of decisions made today when it comes to the fiscal health and high taxes in the state and local governments. New York needs a real watchdog - not a lap dog beholden to special constituencies.
 
Certified Public Accountant Bob Antonacci - he will be your watchdog.
