Does Sean Patrick Maloney Want to Put Military Families Out on the Street?
WASHINGTON –President Barack Obama has vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), but Sean Patrick Maloney has yet to commit to vote to override the President’s veto and authorizes funding for our national defense. The President’s reckless veto could jeopardize housing assistance to military families, leaving thousands of our active duty soldiers and their families without a roof over their heads.
“With the security of our military families at stake, Sean Patrick Maloney has no excuse to stay silent while President Obama puts politics before the best interests of the country,” said NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin. “If Maloney refuses to override the President’s veto, he will be complicit in the hardships that our troops and their families might face.”
The NDAA is critical in ensuring that the men and women of our military and their families receive the funding they have rightfully earned. Included in the bill is a provision to authorize funding for housing assistance for active duty troops and their families.
The NDAA passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 270 to 156.  It passed the Senate by a vote of 70 to 27.

Supervisor at center of U.S Attorney investigation

Supervisor Alex Gromack, who is at the center of a U.S Attorney's investigation
into public corruption in Rockland County, is being targeted for defeat by the
New York State Reform Party in an effort to clean up New York politics, district
by district, seat by seat, said New York Reform Party spokesman Patrick Ziegler.

"The New York State Reform Party, which wants term limits for all New York State
elected officials, will target any office holder who is abusing his office for
personal gain, so long as we can afford to do it," Mr. Ziegler said. "Alex
Gromack is the poster child for shady politics in Rockland County, and we are
urging voters of all political persuasions to reject him at the ballot box next
Tuesday.  Just ask yourself this: Why would a candidate for a town supervisor
position spend more than $800,000 on his re-election?"

Mr. Gromack's campaign filing report -- which includes contributions from at least
31 LLC's -- is available
here, here,

Supervisor Gromack has long been the subject of law enforcement interest.  He failed to
disclose outside income he received from a firm that benefits from county
contracts; he refused to return illegal payments he took from the Sewer
Authority, and he spent tens of thousands of dollars in unitemized expenses,
subsidizing his lifestyle from his campaign account, Mr. Ziegler charged.

"New York has the most corrupt government in America, and there are only two things
that can fix that: Term limits and educated voters," Mr. Ziegler continued. "The
Reform Party is proud of its efforts to educate Clarkstown voters about Mr.
Gromack, and we'd spend more money doing it if we had it. We have every
confidence that voters will deliver justice on Tuesday."

Maloney Statement on Election of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House
Washington, DC — Today, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement on today’s election of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan:
“I’d like to congratulate our new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan on his election today.  The Tea-Party Republicans will continue to make getting things done difficult, but I am hopeful that Ryan can break through Congressional gridlock in a bipartisan way so we can get results for my neighbors in the Hudson Valley.  I’m also eager to work with the Speaker on issues he has expressed personal interest in, like passing laws that allow all working parents—not just Members of Congress – to spend quality time with their families.”

She happily envisioned a life where she would provide genuine service making useful and enduring handwoven textiles out of natural fibers. She anticipated that this path would be gratifying and that the world would be a warmer and softer place. And it was.

Mayor Catalina and his running mates for City Council, Tina Fischer, Brendon Fitzgerald and Herbert Reyes clearly won last night’s debate. Wow, it wasn’t even close. They presented themselves professionally and gave serious answers with realistic and proven solutions and ideas for Peekskill. I am proud of them. Any objective person watching would feel the same.

Peekskill simply cannot afford to continue the path that was forged by the previous administration and the present council majority. I think that as become clear to the vast majority of Peekskill residents. The good thing and comforting thing is that we have an alternative that will truly make a difference and move Peekskill forward in a positive way.

On Tuesday, November 3rd Please vote for the slate that will bring Peekskill back on the road to prosperity, optimism and success…

Tina FISCHER for Common Council

Oh, and please vote for me, John G. TESTA, for County Legislator!

Town Board Meeting
October 27, 2015

Meeting highlights For more details, visit

1. Crompond Terraces (and highway garage project)
Representatives of the development team walked the board through the expanded EAF (Environmental Assessment Form). The project, 80 townhouses, 77,000 SF of retail and commercial space and 16 affordable rental apartments above the commercial space, anticipates \ a population of 283 persons and 45 school age children. The net tax benefits to the town (including special districts) after taking in projected costs, would be $105,811, and $610,590 for the Yorktown School District.

2. East Main Street/Jefferson Valley
Two residents of the area expressed their frustration that despite repeated board discussions, very little has been done to reduce speeding along East Main Street.

3. Sustainable Westchester Community Choice Aggregation program
Leo Wiegman, Executive Director of Sustainable Westchester (SW) and mayor of Croton-on-Hudson, explained the program to the board. The program could result in homeowners and small businesses paying 4% to 5% less for their electric usage. To date, 21 Westchester municipalities have joined the program. Supervisor Grace, joined by Councilmen Bernard and Diana, said that they were not ready to proceed with a public hearing, the first step if the town was interested in participating in the program.

4. Traffic issues
Proposed signs: Public hearings will be held on November 17 to place no parking signs for 100 feet at Laurel Court at Hallocks Mill Road and at Rochambeau and Underhill Avenue.

Solaris parking. The “solution” to the parking problem will be for Solaris to place cones in the street whenever the weather conditions warranted it.

Statement from Chairman Cox on 
Mayor de Blasio's Re-Election Kick-Off

October 29, 2015

"Bill de Blasio's decision to hold his re-election kick-off on the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy and the day after New York City buried its fourth police officer in 10 months demonstrates a stunning lack of compassion, couth and comprehension about the state of his mayoralty. 

"Many City residents are still not back in their homes, crime is up, quality of life is down and our public education system is an embarrassment. Maybe the Mayor should consider running for election on planet Mars because his narcissism is stratospheric."
