Statement from NYS Republican Chairman Ed Cox on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's 
Iowa Presidential Forum

September 30, 2015
"It would appear Mayor de Blasio is bored with his job already. While he tends to his presidential ambitions, quality of life in the city is declining, crime is increasing and the public school system is an embarrassment. Why are we not surprised that he would rather do a public forum in Iowa than New York City?"

Assemblywoman Galef Presents Her Intern Program

on Her "Dear Sandy" TV Show

(October 1, 2015) The latest installment of Assemblywoman Sandy Galef's
television program "Dear Sandy" shines the spotlight on the intern program
she runs in her Assembly district office in Ossining. To discuss their
experiences working with the state, Assemblywoman Galef is joined by college
students Charles Lin, Gerardo Alvarez, Barry Falk, Andrew Leibert, and
recent college graduate Sampson Oppedisano from all over her district.

The interns recount their involvements in government work and the skills
that they attained while working in the Assemblywoman's office. Valuable
skillsets learned from the intern program include hands on experience with
answering phone calls, writing letters, e-mails, press releases, citations,
and certificates of merit. There are also many opportunities for interns to
not only promote and prepare for forums but also to attend those events and
meetings. Some of the events the interns attended this year include the
State of the State Address, Assemblywoman Galef's Senior Forum, and Senator
Gillibrand's press conference for the 9/11 Health Bill.

"This internship was an eye-opening experience. Some days we're faced with
hundreds of emails to reply to, constant ringing from phone calls that need
to be answered, or an entire high school's graduation certificates that need
to be printed. Other days, it is just simple constituent tracking and
searching for bill numbers," said intern Charles Lin from Ossining.
"Everything that we do in the office is a service for our community.  It was
a pleasure to realize that as I am learning new skills for my future career,
I am also bettering other peoples' lives."

"All of my interns are indispensable to my office. Their hard work and
dedication allows me to better serve the community," said Assemblywoman
Galef.  "You would expect that these interns are here in my office to learn
from me, but I am regularly learning from them as well."

YORKTOWN, NY - When you sign up for e-alerts at the Town of Yorktown's  website like town board agenda or property tax e-bills, you probably aren't expecting to have your e-mail address given out to a political campaign for solicitation purposes. Yet that is exactly what happened to many local residents this week, who are now up in arms over what they are calling "an invasion of privacy."
            The Yorktown Republican Town Committee today detailed how all subscribers to the town's official e-mail lists were surreptitiously obtained and subsequently used for electronic solicitations by local Democratic candidates, which they say is a clear abuse of government resources for campaign purposes. Democratic Supervisor candidate, Councilman Vishnu Patel used the town's official e-mail contact lists to send an "Elect Vishnu Patel" solicitation on Monday.
 "The Yorktown Democrats live close enough to Hillary Clinton to know that an email scandal can derail a campaign," Yorktown Republican Chairman Matt Slater said. "Who gave Vishnu Patel this list? Was it obtained by FOIL, or did he surreptitiously download it from the town's website himself? Vishnu Patel should come clean before any further harm is done."
After Patel fired off his email on Monday, the Yorktown GOP, the Town of Yorktown, and even the Yorktown Democratic Committee began receiving complaints through e-mail and on Facebook, from residents wondering how their email addresses ended up on Councilman Patel's campaign for supervisor's e-mail distribution list.
Supervisor Michael Grace believes the procurement and use of the town's official e-mail contact list for political solicitations is a complete breach of the public trust. The fact that a sitting Councilman has conducted himself in this fashion is outrageous, he said, noting that since the e-mail solicitation has the lack of an opt-in by those contacted, it violates the policies of Constant Contact, the service used to send the message.
The improper use of the town's official e-mail lists was discovered when several residents claimed that they were contacted by the Patel campaign on email addresses they had set up to exclusively receive town alerts. The misuse of the lists were later corroborated unwittingly by Democratic Town Councilwoman Susan Siegel on a Facebook post.
"It is wholly improper for the town's email lists to be used in furtherance of a political campaign," Grace said. "It doesn't take a brilliant scientific mind to know right from wrong, does it? Vishnu Patel abused not only the letter of the law, but the spirit of the law, and residents deserve an apology for this abuse."

Upon a subsequent investigation it was discovered that the e-mail lists were provided by the town clerk's office upon two freedom of information requests. One was sent by Barbara Walker, State Working Families Party Committeewoman from the 19th Congressional District and a member of the Steering Committee of the radical left-wing Working Families Party of Westchester-Putnam, which is involved with Councilman Patel's campaign.
The second request was made by Victoria Abbate, wife of Democratic judicial candidate Richard Abbate.
When making this request Walker misquoted an advisory opinion of the New York State Committee on Open Government to persuade the release of the e-mail lists used by Councilman Patel. Walker ignored or omitted the most relevant part of the full advisory opinion which states:
            "One of the examples of an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy pertains to:
"sale or release of lists of names and addresses if such lists would be used for solicitation or fund-raising purposes" [§89(2)(b)(iii)]." (emphasis added)
According to the Town Clerk's office, a demand was made upon the release of the e-mail lists for an affidavit from the requester that the information would not be used for solicitation purposes. Obviously, that affirmation was breached.
Supervisor Grace has called for a special meeting of the Town Board to be held on Friday October 2nd to address this issue. "The town should never have released the e-mail lists, notwithstanding whatever representations were made," he said.
"Someone needed to query what would be the purpose of obtaining e-mail lists other than to contact those on the lists," Grace continued. "And any such contact would be outside an official town communication and therefore a clear abuse of that information and a breach of the trust between the town and the individual subscriber. I can't think of anything more obnoxious then receiving campaign solicitations on an e-mail address provided to my town for the purposes of receiving official town communications.'
"To the degree those involved don't understand the obvious wrongdoing of their actions we will be holding a meeting to make it clear in a binding resolution that this will never happen again," he concluded.
Republican Town Clerk candidate Mary Capoccia said, "This whole matter is truly unfortunate and at this moment I shy away from laying the blame at the feet of the clerk's office. After all they obtained a representation that the lists would not be used for solicitation purposes. The accountability for the misuse of the list lies with Councilman Patel, he sent the e-mail. Nevertheless, a policy must be put in place that the town will not any under circumstances release the town's e-mail lists. Common sense should have alerted anyone that when a politically connected operative seeks an e-mail list it will eventually be wrongfully used.' The town's official record keepers most important function is to protect people's privacy. The public relies on the Clerk to safeguard vital public records a duty I take with the utmost importance. Discretion can and should have been exercised here."
Yorktown Council member Greg Bernard said, "Our resident's personal privacy data is not for sale. We respect the Constitution and the Fourth Amendment right to privacy. It defies common sense that we need to pass a resolution informing Vishnu, Susan and others of what should be common sense."

            Yorktown Council member Tom Diana said, "The Democratic candidates have a lot of explaining to do. The use of government resources for a political campaign effort is a serious charge that must be answered. Spam is an annoyance, but compromising the town's email list is unconscionable."
Yorktown Council candidate Ed Lachterman said, "Signing up for e-mail alerts should not mean sacrificing your liberty. We do not live in a police state, Big Brother is not entitled to give out your email address to every spammer that comes along. The only way to move Yorktown forward is for the Town to apologize for this breach of privacy data and institute policies that ensure it cannot happen again."

Patel's account appears to have been suspended for violating Constant Contact's consent policies requiring "subscribers" to opt-in to communications and was the subject of reports at the SpamCop registry of unsolicited bulk junk mail.

Maloney Condemns Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood, Highlights Consequences for Hudson Valley
2.7 Million Americans Rely on Planned Parenthood for Preventative Services
If Defunded, Local Planned Parenthood Would Be Forced to Turn Away Patients Seeking Cancer Screenings, Contraception, Counseling, and More
Washington, DC — Today, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) and representatives from Planned Parenthood Hudson-Peconic, condemned recent partisan efforts to shut down the federal government in order to defund Planned Parenthood and detailed the disastrous consequences such efforts would have for Hudson Valley women and families. Currently, 2.7 million Americans rely on Planned Parenthood centers for preventive health services each year, and nearly 80 percent of recipients have incomes at or below 150 percent of the poverty line.
“Nearly shutting down the government because of an obsession with taking away life-saving services like cancer screenings and family planning counseling is more than just playing politics – it’s reprehensible,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “Defunding Planned Parenthood would be disastrous for women and families across the Hudson Valley and the entire country, so I will continue the fight to keep Planned Parenthood funded and oppose anything that would jeopardize the services that my friends and neighbors rely on.”
Reina Schiffrin, President/CEO, Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic, said, “If Planned Parenthood is loses its federal funding, Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic stands to lose up to $12 million annually in combined state and federal funding, which includes Medicaid and Title X funding. This funding is reimbursement for medical services provided including pregnancy testing, contraception, testing for sexually transmitted infections and HIV, and breast and cervical cancer screenings.”
Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s leading organizations working to ensure that Medicaid enrollees have access to quality, affordable contraceptive services.  Overall, Planned Parenthood provides family planning counseling and contraceptives to roughly 2.1 million patients each year.
According to a poll conducted by Suffolk University, 65 percent of Americans opposed cutting off federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Permanently defunding Planned Parenthood would end up increasing government spending by $130 million over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
Below you will find statistics from Planned Parenthood on services provided in the past year in the Hudson Valley, New York, and across the country:
·         Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP) Stats
    • Last year alone, PPHP had over 39,000 patient visits in the Lower Hudson Valley.
    • Of those, over 32,000 were family planning visits, which include a variety of services including pap tests, contraception visits and STI testing.
    • Over 2,500 of those were pre-natal visits.
    • Across the entire affiliate, including Suffolk County, PPHP did nearly 6,000 breast exams.
    • If Planned Parenthood were to lose federal funding, PPHP stands to lose up to $12M in combined state and federal funding, which includes Title X and Medicaid reimbursements
·         New York State Stats for 2014
o   59 Planned Parenthood centers
o   179,026 total patients treated in 2014
o   140,774 patients who receive contraception
o   36,935 patients who receive pap tests
o   49,099 total breast exams
·         Nationwide Stats for 2014
o   669 Planned Parenthood Centers
o   2,653,041 total patients treated
o   2,065,801 patients who receive contraception
o   371,116 patients who receive pap tests
o   451,585 total breast exams
