***PRESS RELEASE***
Joe Dillon Calls For Common Sense Above Political Correctness In Response To First Ebola Case in New York City
                       
Says Time Is Now To Protect All New Yorkers and Implement Safety Measures such as Flight Restrictions and Stricter Protocols For Those Coming to the U.S. from West Africa
Joe Dillon of Yonkers, candidate for New York State Senate in the 37th district is supporting calls for state agencies such as the Department of Health and the Port Authority to take action and use their broad powers to protect New Yorkers from the risks Ebola presents to the region.
Earlier this week President Obama again rejected the idea of stopping flights from West Africa by still allowing five U.S. airports to receive travelers originating from Ebola-stricken nations. Among those 5 airports are JFK and Newark Liberty. This idea has gained bipartisan support and is the most logical reaction as we face a potential public health crisis that the federal government has clearly mismanaged.
“The President chose political correctness over common sense, and now we are suffering the negative effects of those decisions. By funneling thousands of potentially at-risk passengers through two New York airports disproportionately jeopardizes the health and safety of our citizens." said Dillon. 
Republican candidate for governor Rob Astorino and John Cahill who is running for Attorney General have both been vocal supporters of restricting travel from West Africa as well as a pragmatic approach to quarantine for those already arrived.
"Both Rob and John have taken thoughtful positions and offered solutions that protect public health and safety of New Yorkers, and I endorse those proposals. I completely agree that our State Department of Health should shut down gates serving carriers with passengers originating in Ebola hotspots.                     
Just this week, the American Alliance of Airport Police (the Port Authority PBA) demanded the Port Authority restrict or refuse flights with passengers originating in West Africa.
Dillon said, “The commissioners of the Port Authority need to listen to their leadership on the ground and stop operations until all personnel have received thorough training on procedures and protocols in the event a passenger shows symptoms in a terminal."
Dillon continued, “While we honor the selfless acts of valor on the part of medical and military personnel serving in West Africa it is imperative that a mandatory quarantine be implemented for anyone who visits the Ebola affected nations upon their return.”

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
A Community that Works
Ever thought that nothing you could do would make a difference? We go to polls to vote, talk with our children's teachers, drop a note in the suggestion box at work, but none of it seems to make a difference. Change is hard to achieve, isn't it?

Allow me to introduce you to Anderson Sa. His credentials are a solid recommendation for a life of crime. Born in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, and raised in the drug culture that dominates them, Anderson Sa was a poster boy for local drug cartels in the fiercest and most violent of Rio's slums-Vigário Geral.

Handsome, gregarious, fun loving, and narrowly focused on growing the drug trade in Rio's favelas (squatter settlements), Anderson was destined for infamy in a world defined by abject poverty and the co-dependence it produces. But for one thing! The violence that attended his chosen work had a horrifying effect on his birthplace, threatening to change both the people and the culture he loved.

Increasingly, he found himself at odds with the purpose and practices of the drug culture in which he had invested his life. But what could he do? He was just one man in a society bent on self-destruction in the grip of fear and hopelessness. The desperation in such solitude is often the breeding ground of hope, the seed of resourcefulness most fertile when the human spirit is rising.

He knew music and the integral part it played in the culture of the favelas. While the drug wars of '99 might have been the impetus to begin anew in Vigário Geral, the AfroReggae cultural movement (a musical foundation for social projects) had already gained a foothold in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. He began by doing what came naturally. He gathered friends in the plaza and began to play the music in his soul, the music of his people. And the words just followed. They were words of renewal, of encouragement, and a call to consider an alternative to the life he was living.

Anderson Sa began to make a difference. He played in the plaza of Vigário Geral and elsewhere daily. And when not joining with others in the visceral drumbeat of AfroReggae, he was out talking with the youth of the favelas, challenging the very practice he had worn so well before as a Tough for the drug lords. Soon after, he found a following and the movement grew to more than 2,000 throughout the hillside communities around Rio known as favelas.

Anderson Sa was making a difference, for himself and for a world he knew and loved. It was the world he knew best, one he believed held more value in its people and culture than their collective fear might reveal. It is said that the math of achievement is passion plus commitment. In our search for meaning and purpose we need to commit to something bigger and more important than ourselves. We want to know that our life counts for something. It's often referred to as a "legacy ideal," that something that measures the contribution we make to others.

I came to the showing of an extraordinary film of the life of Anderson Sa and his work in the favelas of Rio by the invitation of my daughter Ashleigh, whom I was visiting at college. Not coincidentally, Ashleigh is another young person deeply committed to making a difference. She's a quiet sort, with a great heart for others. In her own way she's already begun to do great things. I'm proud of her for that inclination, and for the desire to make a difference.

In the same week I began a re-reading of the book Maximum Achievement, by Brian Tracy. Brian is well-known in my line of work as one who values human capital and the potential for achievement that is the birthright of individuals. Brian spends most of his time encouraging business people to greater success, personally and professionally. Maybe he's so good at it because he came from meager roots.

Like Anderson Sa he held a burning question as he bounced from pillar to post during the first 25 years of his life. He was fascinated by what made people successful and what caused them to feel defeat in similar circumstances. He wrote: "I used to think that people were an important part of any business. Then I learned a great truth: people are the business."

I'm drawn to anyone who can simplify things, who can crystallize the essence of the matter. Brian has hit on something fundamental to the human condition-relationship. Behaviorists agree that we are most productive when in a climate of optimism, enthusiasm, harmony, happiness, and morality. The ego in our approach may be the difference between success and defeat, the difference Brian Tracy sought after for so much of his youth. Indeed, the difference Anderson Sa discovered in that moment of truth when he confronted what C.S. Lewis described as the final horror-to horrify oneself.

The director of the film describes it as follows: "Favela Rising celebrates the strength of the human spirit to assert itself in the face of human rights violations, social injustice, and unexpected adversity. Chronicling the rise to greatness of the AfroReggae movement, the film shows how the music and culture of Brazil's underclass transform into a catalyst for grassroots social-change. But most of all, Favela Rising is the story of a community that works."

As I approach projects for each company client, I wonder about one thing more than any other. That is, how well-prepared the culture is to embrace the selfless nature of great organizations. How willing are individuals to put the success of others ahead of their own, indeed the success of the organization? In other words, is this a community that works?

It is evident to me that great organizations are built on this fundamental human spirit more than anything else. We have learned that every individual and organization puts its faith in something. And that faith (belief) produces reality. Put another way, thought becomes behavior. Kahlil Gibran said: "I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers."

Sometimes we must learn to grow in spite of our surroundings. If we are to influence the world around us, our work environment, our schools, the political process, our communities, we must step out in faith. Anderson Sa knew this in his moment of truth. Ashleigh, too.

Statement by Westchester County Executive
Rob Astorino on Limited Cuomo Quarantine
 
October 24, 2014
6:00 pm
 
"Governor Cuomo doesn't see or refuses to see the whole picture in his half-measure quarantine of travelers from Ebola stricken nations. The key and obvious point is that all travelers to those nations could unknowingly have had contact with Ebola Virus victims. How does Governor Cuomo think the virus spreads?
 
"The proper course of action is to prohibit entrance to any passengers arriving from those nations until verifiable quarantine procedures are established, both overseas and at home. Again, we must err on the side of caution with this virus. Doing anything less than everything we can do to protect the public is morally unacceptable."

Earlier this month, the NYGOP released "Andrew Cuomo's Bottom 10" to coincide with the Governor's appearance on David Letterman.  Starting today, we'll be recapping one of those items every day for the final ten days before Election Day, starting with:
#10: A Teachout Moment
Andrew Cuomo is so unpopular within his own Party that the incumbent Governor couldn't even wrap up the Democratic Party nomination without a primary.

Things were even worse over at the Working Families Party convention, where little-known Fordham Law Professor Zephyr Teachout nearly took the nomination.  She was only stopped by Working Families Party bosses after Cuomo took a bribe from the Party, agreeing to support a Democratic takeover of the State Senate in exchange for the WFP ballot line.  That's a pretty clear violation of New York State Penal Code.

Ultimately, Cuomo was humiliated on Primary Night, unable to win 2/3 of the vote from his own party.

That wasn't the worst of it.  Check out the video below, in which Andrew Cuomo and running mate Kathy Hochul refuse to shake hands or even acknowledge Zephyr Teachout at a parade in New York City.  Just in case the last four years didn't make it clear, Andrew Cuomo might be the most thin-skinned politician in America:



Prof. Teachout did receive the last laugh, though. As of Friday, her book, Corruption in America, is ranked #3,087 on Amazon's topseller list, a full month after its release.  Less than two weeks after its release, Andrew Cuomo's vapid memoir, All Things Possible, ranks #14,643.

22-YEAR INCUMBENT REP. CAROLYN MALONEY (D-NY) AFRAID TO DEBATE CHALLENGER NICK DI IORIO

Rejects 2 Debate Invites, Misleads Press & Voters Claiming 'Forum' is a Debate (Forum Organizers Say No It Isn't)
Share on: Facebook | Twitter

NEW YORK, NY -- Nick Di iorio, challenger to long-term incumbent Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY-12), has accepted two invitations to debate, while she has refused to debate him.  Di iorio has requested a "no notes" rule, whereby he and Maloney would have no talking points or research notes in front of them, but only a blank sheet of paper and writing utensil for note taking.  Maloney has refused and will not debate her opponent even once before the Nov. 4th election.

Event organizers for the traditional 17th Precinct Community Council Candidates' Night Forum have now twice gone on the record with the media clarifying the Oct. 28 event is not a debate.  Two media outlets have confirmed that it is not a debate ("an officer at the 17th Precinct told a T&V reporter it's "not really a debate," bit.ly/1rttsss "Turns out even the sponsors don't call what Maloney agreed to a debate." nyp.st/1wnqA5z).  Despite this, Maloney continues to mislead voters by claiming that a forum - featuring local, state, and federal candidates each making brief remarks and taking a few minutes of Q&A - constitutes a "debate" as she continues to avoid a debate in her 12th quest for the congressional seat with an annual salary of $174,000 plus benefits.

Columbia University College Republican and Democrat clubs jointly invited both Di iorio and Maloney to a debate that would have also welcomed NYU and other colleges to attend.  Di orio enthusiastically accepted.  Maloney declined.  Queens' The National Herald newspaper also invited both candidates to a debate, and again, Di iorio accepted while Maloney was not interested.

"It is unacceptable and cowardly that Carolyn Maloney expects to sashay into another term in Congress, continue to introduce more Dead-on-Arrival bills than anyone else in Congress, exhibit embarrassing performances in important committee hearings yet not even show up to debate during this campaign," said Di iorio. "It's an election, not a coronation."

"Washington isn't just broken -- it's corrupt.  And Carolyn Maloney is part of the problem," said Di iorio, who spent six years in a seminary studying to be a priest.  "We need serious representation in Congress, and New York deserves to have someone there who is working hard for them who takes the job seriously, understands the issues, and can get results.  Carolyn Maloney is not that person."

Nick Di iorio, the Republican nominee, is the sole challenger running in New York's 12th Congressional District against longtime incumbent Carolyn Maloney.  Di iorio has also received support from members of the Independence Party, Libertarian Party, and Conservative Party.  The district includes the east side of Manhattan, Astoria, Long Island City, Greenpoint, & Williamsburg.  More at: www.nickfornewyork.com.

Earlier this month, the NYGOP released "Andrew Cuomo's Bottom 10" to coincide with the Governor's appearance on David Letterman.  We'll be recapping one of those items every day for the final ten days before Election Day. Today, here's:
#9: You're Outta Here!
Andrew Cuomo really doesn't like conservatives.  But don't take our word for it - here's what he told radio host Susan Arbetter:

"Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are, they have no place in the State of New York."

So there you have it.  In Andrew Cuomo's world, conservatives are all extremists and have no place in New York State.  That's really what he thinks.

Shortly after the interview, we called on him to apologize.  When he refused to do so, New Yorkers on the street called on him to apologize:


The comment sparked outrage and made national headlines. 

The New York Times quoted Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin: "I don't agree with progressives on hardly anything. But I would never say that they have no place in the state of New York."

The Blaze featured a tweet from a Catholic Conference spokesman, who wondered if Cuomo would give him a state grant to relocate.

Hot Air reminded the Governor that he just told 48% of Americans that they're not welcome in this state.

In The New York Post, Rob Astorino points out that Cuomo's remarks espouse "just the kind of intolerance that is directly opposite to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached." (Cuomo made the comments right around Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.)
 
And here's a clip from Fox News:



Cuomo made the comments back in January.  We're still waiting for that apology.

REP. TO MISS TUES. CANDIDATE FORUM DUE TO SCHEDULING CONFLICT
ON SATURDAY, DI IORIO ASKED NATIONAL HERALD TO RE-ISSUE PREVIOUS DEBATE INVITE FOR OCT. 30
DI IORIO & MALONEY AGREE TO DEBATE DATE AND RULES

Share on: Facebook | Twitter

NNEW YORK, NY -- When Di iorio confronted Maloney on Monday, October 20 at the Met Opera protest, she denied his request to debate.  Now, after refusing invitations from Columbia University Republicans and Democrats as well as The National Herald, she will also miss Tuesday's 17th Precinct Community Council Candidates' Night forum, due to a scheduling conflict.

On Saturday, Oct. 25, the Di iorio campaign asked The National Herald to re-issue their debate invitation for Oct. 30th in a final effort to secure a debate for the voters of the 12th Congressional District.  The Maloney campaign consented and both campaigns have now agreed to a debate (as opposed to just a forum) on Oct. 30 hosted by The National Herald in Astoria.  The New York Daily News has published a false report that Thursday's Oct. 30 debate sponsored by The National Herald was agreed to at the October 20 Met Opera protest.  However, the Thursday, Oct. 30 debate at The National Herald was never proposed until this Saturday, October 25, when Rep. Maloney's campaign contacted the Di iorio campaign and suggested a debate between Oct. 30 and Nov. 3 so as to accommodate Rep. Maloney's travel schedule. The Di iorio campaign has demanded the Daily News make a correction or retract the article.

Thursday's debate (time TBA), hosted by The National Herald, will have a debate format agreed to by both campaigns and is as follows:

-For each question asked to the candidates, the format will be 2-2-1-1.  For example, for each question, Person A would give a 2-minute answer, Person B would give a 2-minute answer, Person A would give a 1-minute response, and finally Person B would give a 1-minute response.  The debaters will alternate who responds to the question first.

-There will be 3 categories of questions:  1) The Astoria Community; 2) Greek Issues, particularly Military Tensions between Greece, Cyprus, and Turkey; and 3) General questions on the economy and foreign affairs

-A minimum of 9 questions will be asked.

-The moderator(s) will be affiliated with The National Herald and they will ask the candidates questions pertaining to the 3 categories specified above.

-Candidates will use no prepared notes, printed materials or any electronic devices.  Candidates may only be accompanied by a writing utensil and blank paper to use during the debate.

"I am pleased Rep. Maloney has finally agreed to debate me, even though it is very late in this campaign. I especially want to thank The National Herald and Columbia University Republican and Democrat student organizations for their invitations and great efforts.  While I am disappointed Rep. Maloney weeks ago refused the Columbia students' bi-partisan invitation to debate and now suddenly will be on travel, it is with heartfelt gratitude and appreciation that I extend my warmest praise for those organizations for working to play such a vital role in our democratic process.  I also want to thank the 17th Precinct for their invitation to take part in a Candidates' Night forum."

DI IORIO DEMANDS RETRACTION FROM NEW YORK DAILY NEWS FOR FALSE CLAIM, COVERING FOR REP. CAROLYN MALONEY'S MONTH-LONG DEBATE DODGE

Share on: Facebook | Twitter

NFALSE CLAIM: "Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) crossed paths with her opponent Nick Di Iorio last week. It was during that encounter that she agreed to a debate for Thursday."

NEW YORK, NY --  Congressional candidate Nick Di iorio, (R-NY), challenger to Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY-12) has demanded a retraction by the New York Daily News for falsely reporting that when he confronted Maloney last week about her refusal to debate him, she agreed in that conversation to debate him.  This is false. Rep. Maloney and Nick Di iorio both received an invitation one month ago by The National Herald newspaper in Queens to debate.  Di iorio accepted and Maloney did not. Both candidate were also invited jointly by the Columbia University College Republican and Democratic clubs to a debate set for this Monday.  Di iorio accepted and Maloney declined.  Both candidates were invited to take part in a multi-candidate forum by the 17th Precinct this Tuesday that event organizers confirmed to two media outlets was not a debate, despite erroneous claims by Rep. Maloney that it counts as a debate.

In the brief exchange between Di iorio and Maloney last week at the Met protest, Maloney informed Di iorio that she would only do the forum.  On Saturday, October 25, the Maloney campaign informed the Di iorio campaign that her schedule would no longer facilitate the 17th precinct forum (they still referred to it as a "debate"), but that perhaps the organization would accommodate them at a later date -- just before the election. The Di iorio campaign asked The National Herald to re-issue their debate invitation for Oct. 30 and requested Maloney accept.  The Maloney campaign accepted the debate invitation late Saturday night, Oct.25, NOT a week earlier during the exchange between Di iorio and Maloney, as falsely reported by the New York Daily News.

ASTORINO: NEW YORK NEEDS CLEAR AND CONSIDERED POLICY
ON EBOLA PREVENTION SAFEGUARDS
 
"We need a steady hand at the tiller right now;
not a governor acting haphazardly."

New York--Oct. 27...New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's erratic response to the Ebola threat is only creating more confusion and discord in the public and among government agencies at a time when clear and considered public safety policy is necessary, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino today said.
 
Mr. Cuomo has shifted constantly in his positions over Ebola prevention in New York, first rejecting the idea that quarantines are needed; then hastily and haphazardly requiring them without consulting city or federal officials -- and then backtracking yet again when pressured by President Obama to allow home quarantines.
 
"Mr. Cuomo seems to be making policies up as he goes along, almost on a whim, and that's the worst possible thing a government figurehead can do," Mr. Astorino said. "We need a steady hand at the tiller right now; not a governor acting haphazardly. New York has had a month's notice that Ebola was on its way; there is no excuse for this state to be unprepared."
 
Since October 7, Mr. Astorino has been calling for a travel ban to all passengers coming from the three key Ebola stricken nations --  until clear and foolproof quarantine protocols are established.  That would include a mandatory quarantine overseas and at home for anyone coming from those nations, not just healthcare workers.
 
"A strict, humanitarian, and fully considered quarantine policy is needed to best ensure the safety of New Yorkers," Ms. Astorino said. "Throwing a healthcare hero into a tent without forethought or preparation is not responsible public policy."

October 27, 2014
Earlier this month, the NYGOP released "Andrew Cuomo's Bottom 10" to coincide with the Governor's appearance on David Letterman.  We'll be recapping one of those items every day for the final ten days before Election Day. Today, here's:
#8: Hamlet of the Shale
Mario Cuomo was called "Hamlet on the Hudson" for taking so long to decide whether or not he'd run for President. 

Like father, like son. 

Only in this case, the younger Cuomo's indecision on
hydraulic fracturing for natural gas is costing more than just campaign jobs.
Andrew Cuomo's administration told us they needed just "90 days" to complete their environmental impact study on hydraulic fracturing.  That was almost two years ago.

Cuomo's political calculus isn't difficult to understand here: he's too afraid of the environmental Luddites in his own party to allow hydraulic fracturing, and (rightfully) afraid of being called anti-business if he bans it outright. 

So he does nothing. How's that for leadership?

Meanwhile, New York is the only state that has shale gas and isn't developing it, and the Southern Tier, which would benefit the most from natural gas exploration, leads the state in unemployment.

Just across the border in Pennsylvania, safely regulated hydraulic fracturing for natural gas has supported the creation of over a quarter of a million new jobs. 

Upstate New York continues to bleed jobs, and the Southern Tier is merely getting a frustrating taste of "what might have been" from the spillover from Pennsylvania's booming economy.
 
Pittsburgh prospers while Buffalo bleeds.
 
And that's because Governor Cuomo doesn't have the political guts to permit the development of New York's rich hydrocarbons.
 
We get it - the Governor is deathly afraid of the left wing of his own Party after Zephyr Teachout embarrassed him in the Democratic primary.  But don't take our word for it: even Barack Obama supports hydraulic fracturing, and this May, Chuck Schumer said on MSNBC that "most Democrats support fracking."

But Andrew Cuomo hides behind an endless environmental impact study, a ploy designed to hide the fact that the only job he cares about is his own.

Skelos and Cuomo Need To Move On Vets Buyback Bill Before Election Day
East Fishkill, NY - (10/27/14) - Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I - East Fishkill) is calling on State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos to finally send the veterans service credit buyback bill, which passed both houses four months ago, to Governor Cuomo for his signature. Lalor is also asking for Cuomo to sign the legislation before Election Day.

"Senator Skelos won't send the bill to the governor for his signature, the governor isn't asking for the bill and the chairman of the Senate Veterans Committee, Senator Ball, is too busy to do anything because he's playing polo in Texas," said Lalor. "It looks like this bill was a cynical empty gesture and they don't really want to see it become law. But, this bill is a good thing to do for New Yorkers who served in the military and it's a good thing for those who will sign up to serve in the future. Senator Skelos should send it to the governor immediately. Governor Cuomo should sign it now, before Election Day."

Lalor added, "It looks like Governor Cuomo wants to veto this pro-vet, pro-military legislation, he just doesn't want to do it before Election Day. I can't think of another reason why the governor hasn't asked yet for the bill to be sent to his office for his signature. Worse, Senator Skelos is playing along and holding onto the bill, rather than passing it to the governor and demanding a yes or a no. This is a new level of cynicism for Albany."

Bill S.7839 allows veterans from any era to to buy back up to three years of service credit in the public employee retirement systems for their military service. Currently, New York only allows veterans who served during specific conflicts to buy back service credit. The bill passed the State Senate 57-0 and the State Assembly 133-1. The bill is supported by the AFL-CIO, NYSUT, CSEA, Police Conference of New York, DC-37, PEF, Vietnam Veterans of America, and New York State Association of PBAs.

Of the bill, Lalor said, "Those who would benefit from this bill served in the post-draft era of the all-volunteer military. They volunteered to serve on ships and in garrisons at home and abroad keeping the Soviet war machine in check, then maintained the peace after we won the Cold War. This bill does more than honor the service of veterans. It encourages the next generation to serve by reminding them that their state values and rewards service in defense of our nation."

"Governor Cuomo had the time to sign a bill making yogurt New York's official snack, but he doesn't seem to have the time for this bill to recognize veterans," Lalor concluded. "He also hasn't had the time to sign legislation that would waive the fee for veterans' driver's licenses. This bill had nearly unanimous support in both houses and it has backing from groups ranging from public-sector unions to veterans organizations. It should have priority over the state snack bill. 
As for any fiscal implications of the bill, I'd be happy to sit-down with Skelos and Cuomo and identify places in the budget where we could find savings."
