Governor Says Common Core 'Isn't Working'
Governor Cuomo has just announced to the Daily Voice
 that he believes the implementation of Common Core is 'not working,' and the current program must now go.

That is exactly what I, and the tens of thousands of families who opted their children out, have been saying since the disastrous implementation of this flawed system began.

For decades, thousands of residents in Yorktown have paid sewer taxes, yet were prohibited by law from hooking up to the sewer district. I want residents to know that is all about to change.

Thanks to Supervisor Michael Grace and local officials and citizens who have been influential in the effort to bring sanitary sewerage systems to Yorktown, the town has receive d State DEC approval to finally issue new permits in the Hallocks Mill Sewer District.

Even with many facing failing residential septic systems, the town was for years limited to only emergency hook-ups. We're hitting for the cycle on clean water! This year, after passing my Westchester Clean Water Act and earmarking significant funds in the state budget for wastewater treatment and clean water projects, the Hallock's Mill Sewer District will be issuing new permits for permanent hookups. READ MORE
