Are New York Voters Happy with Sean Patrick Maloney After Voting to Give Billions to State Sponsor of Terrorism? 
WASHINGTON —Sean Patrick Maloney has once again put politics ahead of our national security with his vote in favor of the dangerous Iran deal just last Friday. Despite its status as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, Iran will rake in more than $100 billion dollars as the United States and partner nations unfreeze Iranian assets and liberalize trade restrictions as part of the deal. Maloney’s vote ensures Iran will have greater resources to funnel to terrorist groups that will put America and our allies in danger. Just last month, President Obama admitted Iran’s support of terrorism, stating, “We have no illusions about the Iranian government…Iran supports terrorist organizations like Hezbollah.”
So are New York families proud of Sean Patrick Maloney’s vote?
“By supporting this dangerous deal with Iran, Sean Patrick Maloney put our national security and the safety of our soldiers and allies at risk,” said NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin. “Instead of taking a stand to ensure no new funds flow to terrorist groups, Maloney dangerously voted to authorize billions for this State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

Senator Terrence Murphy, Supervisor Rob Greenstein Announce Funds for Millwood Sidewalks
MILLWOOD, NY - For a number of years residents in the hamlet of Millwood have been clamoring for safer walkways in the heart of the Millwood Business District.  Since proposing the sidewalk extension and safety plan for Millwood years have gone by with little done.  That is all about to change thanks to the team of Senator Terrence Murphy and Supervisor Rob Greenstein.

"This is exactly what New York should be investing in, infrastructure improvements which improve safety and enhance our local businesses," Senator Murphy said.  "When Supervisor Greenstein contacted me about this project I was more than happy to assist in securing the necessary funds to finally address the needs of Millwood."

On September 1st the Department of Transportation sent New Castle a letter informing the town the project has been nominated for the $500,000 multi-modal grant.  The money will be used to install ADA compliant sidewalks and curbing along the intersection of Route 100 and Station Road.  In addition, decorative lighting improvements along Station Road will also be included in the project.  A second component will install 474 feet of sidewalk improvements including a crosswalk and decorative lighting along NYS Route 100 in proximity to Millwood Park.  In February of 2013, the Town committed $1,185,567 to fund the project.

"We thank Senator Murphy for helping us secure this $500,000 grant to enhance the Hamlet of Millwood," Supervisor Rob Greenstein said.  "Over the past year we have worked with Senator Murphy's office to secure these funds.  The timing is perfect as we are currently studying enhancing commercial development in Millwood.  Increasing pedestrian improvements will certainly support economic development and enhance community vitality and the overall quality of life."

"On behalf of the entire membership of the Millwood-West End Advisory Board, we want to thank Supervisor Greenstein and Senator Murphy for making this proposal a reality," resident Michael Stern said.  "It is rewarding to see our vision for the Millwood Business District improvements are progressing.  This grant will help put Millwood on track to become a safe and attractive business district for the town of New Castle."

Dear member:

Please take some time and watch the video of my cable show with Dan. I attached my letter to the editor that's in this week's Yorktown News if you haven't read it.


This Wednesday Sept. 16, starting 5:30 PM will be a BBQ at my home address 2635 Dunning Drive for our UTY members. I will supply the food and drinks; you bring a chair. I will collect the $10.00 dues for next year if you haven't paid yet for 2016.


Tuesday night is a town board meeting at 7:30PM we need you to attend and support the UTY members that with speak on the issue of our petition to stop the moving of the highway garage.


Letter to the editor:

I was at the work session where Councilman Patel covered his eyes with the drape; the photo was in your newspaper. Mr. Patel asked Mr. Reda to please not use the flash on his camera it was hurting his eyes. Reda did it again and again Mr. Patel covered his eyes with the drape. Question number one, where did you get that photo? There were no reporters from your newspaper there nor was there the town clerk. The only one person taking photos was Mr. Reda. Question number two, where is Mr. Reda’s photo of Supervisor Grace standing up screaming at the top of his lungs at councilwoman Siegel. Grace lost control when Siegel wanted to send out a letter from the town board to notify the 200 property owners they could hook up to the Yorktown sewer district sewer lines. I got a photo of supervisor Grace from that meeting, do you want my photo? I told Supervisor Grace to calm down, one of Reda’s children got scared; Supervisor Grace started yelling at me. I got up and went to the back of the room. If I was Patel or Siegel I would have called the police on both men for their outrageous behavior. There were others there who witnessed their harassment of our public officials from another political party.

The number of UTY’s signed petitions is over 1000 signatures against the moving of the highway garage, and the number of signatures is increasing every day.

Dear editor, why don’t you write an article explaining what a (Permissive Referendum) under the NY State code article 7 is and how it was used to pass the Town Of Yorktown’s $2.6 million dollar bond issue in December of 2014. It only gave the residents of Yorktown 30 days to object by petition. There were no objections filed; it passed because of this legal trick by the supervisor. We will be ready with our petitions if they try to use the permissive referendum again. We want the town board to stop the project now. The UNITED Taxpayer’s of Yorktown feel if the Board wants to spend an estimated $4.8 million dollar on this project, we want a proposition placed on the November ballot. Let the residents vote on this unnecessary expense to the Yorktown taxpayers.

The 2015 tax rate increase was 3.6%, with a surplus of $5.3 million in the general fund over 20 million dollars in surplus in special district funds. The town did not use $1.4 million from the 2014 budget and still raised taxes. We the people must demand a zero budget increase or less by using these surpluses and the money that was left over in 2014. The Supervisor’s tentative budget for 2016 will be out at the end of October. Vote him out of office if there’s a tax increase, Vote on Election Day November 3, 2015.

Please call me at 245-1018 to join the UTY, go to our website at for more information. To sign our petition on line go to and type in Yorktown in the search box. We must stop the Supervisor’s plan to move the highway garage at cost $4.8 million dollars or more.

Supervisor's Update - September 14th, 2015

To our Jewish Residents/Friends,
May you find peace as you begin your time of solemn introspection during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, continuing through the Holy Days and into Yom Kippur.
While we will continue to run the Town, including holding meetings, we understand our responsibility to make sure we respect all of our residents.  We will not close any public hearings, with the exception of a homeowner request to join the Sewer District, during the next two weeks.
Our meeting on Tuesday, September 15th, is a Work Session, during which the Town Board will continue our discussion on the updates to the Vision portion of the Comprehensive Plan, as well as the local laws we have been discussing for the past year (+).  There will not be public comment during these discussions with our consultants.
On Tuesday, September 22nd, we will reopen all of the public hearings on Local Laws #5-9 of 2015, as well as open an additional one on the establishment of an Architectural Review Board (Local Law #10 of 2015) and one concerning a request from the family at 73 Morningside Drive join the Sewer District.  The ONLY public hearing that will be closed is the one concerning the Sewer District- all others will be adjourned until the October 13th, 2015  Town Legislative Meeting as we continue to listen and tweak the six Local Laws currently before the Board.
Don't forget to mark your calendar for our Town Hall Meeting on October 6th, 2015 where we will celebrate the residents who have had energy improvements done to their homes over the past few years.   Come and help us, along with the Villages of Briarcliff Manor and Ossining, Green Ossining, and Energize NY, celebrate the property owners who have taken this important step.   The other item on the agenda will be an update of the Town of Ossining Reassessment Project.
We will not be holding a meeting on Tuesday, September 29th, 2015.


Please feel free to forward this e-mail to any of your family, friends, acquaintances, or business associates who may have an interest in these, as well as other Town subjects.
As always, please feel very free to contact me with any questions.
