For immediate reply: 

The recent video showing Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services of Planned Parenthood, discussing the procurement of fetal tissues when conducting abortions is outrageous. No matter where you stand on the issue of abortion, what Planned Parenthood is doing is not right and a federal and state investigation on this practice by Planned Parenthood is warranted.
As I consider a run for the State Assembly and as I go door to door listening to the concerns of folks just like me, I am becoming more and more concerned for this community and our state.
While the issues of taxes, corruption and waste in state government have motivated me to consider running for higher office, the extreme leftist shift in New York State government has me equally, if not even more gravely concerned.
Sadly, I have seen more mentioned in the media on Donald Trump having to leave his campaign trail so he can attend jury duty then on Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts!
New York State is on the verge of passing legislation that will shut down Catholic hospitals and allow even late term, partial birth abortion as an absolute right. It is sickening to believe, but recently uncovered footage shows us that this radical push by the extreme left in New York is not about "choice" at all, but in part, about Planned Parenthood selling baby parts.
Planned Parenthood, along with the media, is doing a wonderful job sweeping this latest news of what they do with aborted babies under the rug. It is not a comfortable conversation, it is sometimes a confrontational one, but it is a needed one.
Let's not turn our heads and ignore what is happening here, please get involved and demand that our state stop funding this nightmare and force both the state and the federal government to investigate.

Legislators Approve Annual Westchester Community College Budget with No Tuition Increase
On Monday, August 10th, the Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) unanimously approved the annual budget for Westchester Community College (WCC).  The college’s total budget for fiscal year 2015/2016 is $166,669,694.  The College employees about 600 people.
As the Sponsor government for the College, Westchester County will contribute $29,329,234.  The budget does not raise tuition which is projected at $4,280 for Westchester residents.  There are approximately 13,000 full- and part-time college credit students at WCC.  Total enrollment including Continuing Education students is about 24,000.
The budget includes $3 million for four projects.  Two projects which are planned for the coming year are upgrades to the parking lots at the Valhalla campus and investments in Information and education technology.  The other two projects are for multi-year “Planning Studies” regarding infrastructure needs.
BOL Chairman Michael Kaplowitz lauded the spending plan, particularly the fact that it does not raise tuition.  “WCC is among the best community colleges in the United States.  To have an institution of WCC’s quality in our community is a tremendous asset to Westchester County.  In a county like Westchester where there is a significant differential in income level, Community Colleges are such an important part of making quality, secondary education accessible to everyone.”  Kaplowitz said.  “I applaud Dr. Belinda Miles, WCC’s President and her leadership team for not raising tuition for the coming year.  WCC’s mission to make high quality education affordable creates opportunities for lower income students and contributes to Westchester County’s social and economic vitality.”
The 2015-2016 budget is the first for WCC’s new President, Dr. Belinda Miles.   "We thank the Board of Legislators for partnering with the college to provide increased access for County residents seeking to obtain knowledge to move on to four-year colleges and universities, and to become gainfully employed in the local workforce. With this financial support, we are poised to lead a new era of growth, service, success and excellence,” said Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President, Westchester Community College.
BOL Budget and Appropriations Chair Legislator Sheila Marcotte said, “This budget strikes the right balance between supporting the College and protecting taxpayers.  WCC does an excellent job of making sure our local students have a chance to continue their education after high school.  The dividends paid by our investment in WCC are measured in practical things like job-readiness and further educational opportunities but there are other intangible benefits like pride in personal achievement and self-reliance that make our community stronger.”
Legislator Bernice Spreckman (R) Yonkers is Chair of the BOL’s Seniors and Constituencies Committee "I personally feel that WCC is one of the best community colleges in
the country. Every time we vote on the budget, I feel great that every student has the opportunity for higher-education to better their future!"

Governor's Bill Signing to Make Government More Efficient

New Legislation Abolishes Non-Functioning Commissions, Boards, and

Assemblywoman Sandy Galef (D-Ossining) and Senator Carl Marcellino (R-Oyster
Bay) applauded Governor Andrew Cuomo's signing of their jointly sponsored
legislation (A564/S4553), which will eliminate non-functioning commissions,
boards, and committees so that state government redundancy is eliminated.
The Governor signed this legislation on August 13, 2015 as Chapter 105 of
the laws of the State of New York.


The Galef-Marcellino Bill will repeal several commissions, boards, and
committees that have been considered obsolete, including the New York State
Collectable Series Panel, and the Plant Industry Advisory Committee.  Both
of these commissions have not been in use for over a period of four years
and are, therefore, superfluous.

"This legislation is significant in that it removes nonfunctioning
entities," said Assemblywoman Galef.  "It is imperative that we as
legislators and those who work for state agencies recognize that there are
entities that have exceeded their expiration date, and must be abolished for
the sake of productive governing.  These changes will help to eliminate the
commissions, boards, and committees that are no longer useful. "
Letter To The Editor: RE: Things That Tick Me Off:  Manifesto 08/18/15

Dear Andy:

Love the Bazzo Manifesto of August 18, 2015!!  What do I say?  Well, you said it all...but one pet peeve.....littering.  After spending hours picking up litter during the spring cleanup, i.e.,  the Battle of Yorktown, literally by the end of the day, the litter starts to reappear.  This littering doesn't stop throughout the year.  Like you say, "stupid parents produce stupid kids."  And I bet a lot of them  in their "stupidity" vote for an  Administration that will "take care of them" and they, therefore, also  expect their fellow citizens to pick up the garbage they throw from a car or just drop in the nearby woods, parking lots, walkways, etc. when they finish their drinks, snacks and cigarette packages and buts.  You find a lot of other disgusting stuff at the Battle of Yorktown.  Why do they think they have this right???

Thanks for letting me vent!
