For a second time, the issue of whether  the Grace Building at 360 Unde4rhill Avenue was properly assessed.

FOR
IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALMOST
HALF (49%) OF U.S. COLLEGE STUDENTS  "INTIMIDATED" BY PROFESSORS WHEN SHARING
DIFFERING BELIEFS: SURVEY
-----
72%
say their college or university should be doing more to promote diversity of
opinions in the classroom and on campus
-----
Almost
One-Third (32%) Misidentify First Amendment

New
Haven CT -- Oct. 26...
A
national survey measuring the opinions of U.S. college students on the issue of
free speech on college campuses was released today by
The
William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale
,
which sponsored the poll.

The
2015 Buckley Free Speech Survey
,
which was conducted by nationally respected pollster, McLaughlin &
Associates, revealed a wealth of information about how college students view
rights and topics such as: The First Amendment; speech codes; academic freedom;
trigger warnings; "political correctness;" and intellectual diversity, among
other things. The national survey of 800 undergraduate students was conducted
online and respondents were carefully selected and screened from a nationwide
representative platform of individuals who elect to participate in online
surveys.

The
survey can be
viewed
here
.

"The
William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale was founded to increase intellectual
diversity on the Yale University campus and beyond, and this survey shows that
we have a great deal of work to do," said Buckley Program founder and executive
director Lauren Noble. "The survey results confirmed some of what we expected,
but they also revealed troubling surprises. It is the opinion of the Buckley
Program that university campuses are best served by free and open speech, but,
lamentably, that opinion is anything but unanimous, the survey shows. "
 

Highlights
from the
2015
Buckley Free Speech Survey

include:

  • Forty-nine
    percent (49%) of survey participants said they have often felt intimidated to
    share beliefs that differ from their professors
    , including
    14% who said "frequently" and 35% who said
    "sometimes";

  • Exactly
    half (50%) said they have often felt intimidated to share beliefs that differ
    from their classmates, including 16% who said "frequently" and 34% who said
    "sometimes";

  • The
    majority of students (53%) say their professors have often used class time to
    express their own views about matters outside of coursework, including 14% who
    say "frequently" and 38% who say "sometimes";

  • Greater
    than six in ten (63%) say political correctness on college campuses is either a
    "big problem" (19%) or "somewhat of a problem" (44%);

  • Fifty-five
    percent (55%) of students say they are aware of "trigger warnings" and 63% would
    favor their professors using them, while 23% would
    oppose;

  • By
    a 52-42% margin, students say their college or university should forbid people
    from speaking on campus who have a history of engaging in hate
    speech;

  • Seventy-two percent
    (72%) of students surveyed said they support disciplinary action for "any
    student or faculty member on campus who uses language that is considered racist,
    sexist, homophobic or otherwise offensive";  

  • When
    students were asked to identify the amendment that deals with free speech, 68%
    correctly cited the First Amendment. One in three (32%) incorrectly listed
    another amendment;

  • The
    majority (52%) said that the First Amendment does not make an exemption for hate
    speech and that all speech is protected under the First Amendment. One in three
    (35%) say that hate speech is not protected under the First
    Amendment;

  • By a 73%
    to 21% margin, students say the First Amendment is an important amendment that
    needs to be followed and respected rather than an outdated amendment that can no
    longer be applied in today's society and should be
    changed.
  • Liberal
    students are more likely than conservative students to say the First Amendment
    is outdated, 30% to 10%, respectively;

  • By a
    nearly two to one margin, students said their school is generally more tolerant
    of liberal ideas and beliefs than conservative ideas and beliefs, 37% to 20%.
    Thirty-six percent (36%) said their school was equally tolerant of
    both.
  • Private
    school students are more likely than public school students to say their school
    is more tolerant of liberal ideas, 43% to 35%, respectively;

  • Ninety-five percent
    (95%) of all college students say the issue of free speech is important to them,
    including 70% who say it is "very important";

  • By a 51%
    to 36% margin, students favor their school having speech codes to regulate
    speech for students and faculty.

  • Eight in
    ten believe that freedom of speech should either be less limited (38%) on
    college campuses or there should be no difference (43%) compared to society at
    large. Just 16% say freedom of speech should be more
    limited;

  • When given
    a choice, just one in ten (10%) say colleges, universities and government should
    regulate free speech more. A slight plurality (46%) says free speech is
    important, but there should be exceptions to every rule and 42% support freedom
    of speech in all cases;

  • Seven in
    ten (72%) say their college or university should be doing more to promote
    policies that increase diversity of opinions in the classroom and on
    campus;

  • Almost
    nine in ten (87%) agree that there is education value in listening to and
    understanding views and opinions that they may disagree with and are different
    than their own;

Those
surveyed were:

  • Political
    party: 42% Democratic, 26% Republican, 29%
    independent;

  • Ideology:
    44% liberal, 32% moderate, 20% conservative, and

  • Race/Ethnicity: 54%
    white, 15% African American, 14% Hispanic/Latino, 8% Asian, 7% one or
    more.


POLL
METHODOLOGY ON NEXT PAGE:
Methodology

McLaughlin
& Associates conducted a national survey of 800 undergraduate students from
September 19
th
to 28
th,
2015. All interviews were conducted online and respondents were carefully
selected and screened from a nationwide representative platform of individuals
who elect to participate in online surveys.

Data
for this survey have been stratified by age, race, sex and geography using the
National Center for Education Statistics 2014 Report to reflect the actual
demographic composition of undergraduate students in the United States.

Because
the sample is based on those who initially self-selected for participation
rather than a probability sample, no estimates of sampling error can be
calculated. All surveys may be subject to multiple sources of error, including,
but not limited to sampling error, coverage error and measurement error.

However,
a confidence interval of 95% was calculated in order to produce an error
estimate of +/- 3.4% for the 800 respondents. This error estimate should be
taken into consideration in much the same way that analysis of probability polls
takes into account the margin of sampling error. The error estimate increases
for cross-tabulations. Totals may not add up to exactly 100% due to
rounding.

SENATOR MURPHY ENDORSES 
TEAM MOVING MT. PLEASANT FORWARD
HAWTHORNE, NY - State Senator Terrence Murphy has announced his endorsement of Mt. Pleasant Supervisor Carl Fulgenzi and Councilman Nick DiPaolo in the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 3rd.
"During my short tenure representing the Mt. Pleasant Community, Supervisor Fulgenzi has been an incredible advocate and partner for his town.  Always a gentleman, Supervisor Fulgenzi possesses the vision and passion to propel Mt. Pleasant to a successful next chapter.  I am proud to have partnered with him on a number of initiatives, including train safety, Thornwood's downtown revitalization and most recently, honoring our local veterans at our first annual Veterans' Pancake Breakfast which took place at the Mt. Pleasant Community Center."
"In addition to Supervisor Fulgenzi, the residents of Mt. Pleasant have a tax fighting bulldog in Councilman Nick DiPaolo.  Councilman DiPaolo fights everyday on behalf of the taxpayer because he knows of the importance of affordability.  When I'm in Albany I fight to give everyone an opportunity to succeed and having Councilman DiPaolo in the trenches with me back home is an enormous asset.

"The final pieces needed to move Mt. Pleasant Forward include Councilman Mark Rubeo, Judge Robert Ponzini, Town Clerk Pat Scova and Highway Superintendent Peter Scilliano.  This team has consistently impressed me with their ideas and management of the town. They have more than earned the trust of residents of Mt. Pleasant and deserve their vote on November 3rd."

Will Sean Patrick Maloney Call On Barack Obama To Support Victims of Sexual Assault?
 
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which authorizes funding for the United States Armed Forces, despite bipartisan support for the plan. The bill also includes provisions to support victims of sexual assault. Since President Obama has made it clear that he is willing to deny funding to assist victims of sexual assault, will Sean Patrick Maloney vote to override this veto since he voted in favor of the bill?  Or is Maloney afraid to rock the boat with his Party’s leader?
 
“Sean Patrick Maloney needs to override President Obama’s veto and stop playing politics with bipartisan legislation that supports victims of sexual assault in the military,” said NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin.  “Some issues are more important than simply voting ‘yes’ and calling it a day, and soon we will find out if Sean Patrick Maloney thinks that includes supporting victims of sexual assault.”
 
The NDAA is critical in ensuring that the men and women of our military and their families receive the funding they have rightfully earned, in addition to provisions to support victims of sexual assault.  The bill passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 270 to 156 and the Senate by a vote of 70 to 27.

SENATOR MURPHY ENDORSES 
TEAM NEW CASTLE 2.0
CHAPPAQUA, NY - State Senator Terrence Murphy has announced his endorsement of Team New Castle 2.0 in the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 3rd.
"When it comes to this November's election the residents of New Castle have an important decision to make.  In my opinion, Supervisor Greenstein has earned a second term as supervisor.  His vision and commitment to this community goes unmatched.  I am proud to have partnered with him on a number of projects, including most recently, securing the necessary funding to construct additional sidewalks in the Millwood Business District."
"But Supervisor Greenstein will have an incredibly challenging time moving New Castle forward without Eileen Gallagher and Seth Chodosh.  Together, these candidates will bring the integrity and ideas that residents can trust.
"All three members of Team New Castle 2.0 are raising their families here and recognize the importance of maintaining quality services that don't cost an arm and a leg.  Team New Castle 2.0, which is a bipartisan coalition of like minded candidates, has my full support in the upcoming election."

MURPHY ENDORSES RANIOLO
FOR RE-ELECTION
YORKTOWN, NY - State Senator Terrence Murphy has announced his endorsement of Judge Gary J.  Raniolo for re-election as Yorktown Town Justice in the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 3rd.
"Judge Raniolo has been an outstanding jurist and a faithful servant to the people of Yorktown. His experience of over 32 years in both criminal and civil law is formidable. His years as an Assistant District Attorney gave him great insight into how the court system can best serve the people. Judge Raniolo relates well to others. He has great people skills, which makes his court a place of learning in addition to the disbursement of justice."
"Gary's contributions to the community extend beyond the courtroom. His support of education and drug abuse prevention are well known. He's involved with Yorktown Youth Court, Yorktown Justice League Mock Trial Team, Yorktown and Lakeland High School Internship Programs, and serves on the board of the Yorktown Citizens Task Force Against Heroin. He supports the Yorktown Alliance for Safe Kids, Elks Lodge #2324, Circolo da Vinci, Yorktown Chamber of Commerce, and the Huskers Club.

Statement from Chairman Cox on 
Today's Siena Poll

October 26, 2015

"New Yorkers continue to disapprove of Governor Cuomo's job performance because he has failed to address what is holding the state back--the nation's highest taxes and smothering regulations. He's wasting his political capital on petty fights and symbolism while New Yorkers continue to leave the state in droves. Until he fundamentally tackles these problems, both our state and his poll numbers will remain under water."
