CONGRESSMAN MALONEY & SENATOR BALL TEAM UP TO HOST 5TH ANNUAL VETERANS THANKSGIVING DINNER 

 

Carmel, N.Y. – 11/17/2015 – Keeping the tradition alive, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney has partnered with former State Senator and Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, Gregory R. Ball to host the 5th Annual Veterans Thanksgiving Dinner on November 21, 2015.

“I'm honored to join my friend Greg in co-hosting this great event for our local veterans,” said Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney. “As the son of a Navy veteran I know how much our men and women in uniform have sacrificed and contributed to make our community and our country great. I'm proud to be a part of this dinner to say thank you to these heroes.”

This year Councilwoman Suzi McDonough is Chairing the great event along with Eugene Parrotta, Chairman of Downstate Chapter of Purple Heart Homes. Over the past four years, former State Senator Ball worked with the community to host an annual Thanksgiving dinner for local veterans. The dinner drew over 800 veterans and hundreds of local volunteers, each year.

“God bless this awesome community for delivering another homerun for our heroes. This has become such a special event and is only possible because the entire community steps up to the plate to thank your veterans,” said Senator Greg Ball. “We still need volunteers and donations and ask folks to volunteer the day of and day before. This single event has now spawned similar events throughout the area and with the help of Congressman Maloney, we are flattered and honored to keep this great tradition alive. My hope is to expand this effort nationally.”

The community is asked to either donate goods, their time or make a donation on behalf of the event, directly to the Downstate Chapter of Purple Heart Homes.

This event could not be made possible without the support of local volunteers and businesses. Helping to keep the tradition alive are dozens of local business, including Lou Cardillo who has donated over $500 and is also partnering with Purple Heart Homes to seek donations and volunteers in order to make the free meal possible for the 5th year in a row.

“I am excited to get involved in this event to keep this wonderful tradition going. I can’t think of a better way for our community to come together to thank our veterans that have sacrificed so much for us,” said Lou Cardillo. “ While we have assembled a wonderful team to help organize this dinner, this is truly a community event and we will heavily rely on the generosity of community members and our small businesses to make this all possible.”

“I always look forward to the Veterans Thanksgiving Dinner each year, as it is truly an incredible event for everyone who attends,” said Vietnam War veteran and Purple Heart recipient Eugene Parrotta. “It’s great that the community is coming together to host the dinner for a fifth time this year. I know that the hundreds of veterans who attend each year are already excited to be invited back for another great Thanksgiving celebration, and Purple Heart Homes thanks Lou Cardillo and his entire team, for their caring and generosity.”

Carmel Town Councilwoman Suzi McDonough, who also serves on the board of the Downstate Chapter of Purple Heart Homes, will be helping to organize the event.

“Thanksgiving is a time for all of us to be thankful to all of our Veterans and their families that served and are serving this great nation. We will take delight in serving them a delicious meal at the fifth annual Veterans Thanksgiving Dinner,” said Councilwoman Suzi McDonough, Board Member of the New York Downstate Chapter of Purple Heart Homes.

In addition to volunteers, Congressman Maloney and Senator Ball are also seeking donations for the Thanksgiving Dinner including:  625 dessert plates, 600 coffee cups, 60 turkey pans, 5 uncooked turkeys (20 lbs or more), turkey gravy, cans of string beans, cans of whole white potatoes, cans of corn, cans of cranberry sauce, salad dressing, premade bags of stuffing, 48 oz cans of chicken broth, pies and décor.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at the Putnam Golf Course. Seating times will be 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
 

If you are interested in volunteering or donating goods, please contact Suzi McDonough at suzi5mcdonough@gmail.com or (914) 403-8463.

STATEMENT FROM STATE SENATOR TERRENCE MURPHY
ON THE LATEST BATTLES OF WAR ON TERROR
Jefferson Valley, NY - State Senator Terrence Murphy released the following statement regarding the recent terrorist attacks in Paris:
 
"As a father of three kids, I worry everyday that we will experience another terrorist attack similar to 9/11.  New Yorkers, especially those in the Hudson Valley, have mourned the loss of life due to radical Islamic terrorism and can relate better than most to the horrific attacks in Paris.
 
"While we grieve for those lost on Friday evening, we must begin a thorough process of reevaluating our own security measures here at home.  We face a major national security issue stemming from illegal immigration. Four of the 9/11 hijackers were illegal immigrants on visa overstays.
 
"I agree with former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly that we need to do more to secure our borders, empower our law enforcement agencies to properly protect all of our residents and look to enhance our use of new technologies to interrupt the communication of terrorists both domestically and abroad.
 
"It is my hope that my colleagues in both houses, and on both sides of the aisle, can have the needed dialogue to address the security issues facing our state, which is consistently a target of terror. It has become abundantly clear that the federal government has proven itself unable to guarantee the refugees coming into our country and state are not involved with ISIS. The acceptance of any Syrian refugees should be suspended until there is a clear process in place to fully vet their background and ensure they pose no threat to New York State residents."

NYS Assemblymembers Galef and Buchwald and Westchester County Legislators
Demand Halt to Imminent Tree Cutting for AIM Pipeline in County Park, Citing
Need for State’s Approval



Ahead of Budget Address, electeds say that Westchester County Executive
Astorino’s administration violated NYS ‘Parkland Alienation’ process



NYS Assemblymembers hand deliver County Executive Astorino letter demanding
he suspend, rescind or revoke agreement with gas pipeline corporation and
work with State



Westchester (Friday, November 13) - NYS Assemblywoman Galef, NYS Assemblyman
Buchwald, Westchester County Majority Leader Borgia and Westchester
Legislators Parker and Shimsky will demand that Westchester County Executive
Rob Astorino halt the imminent clearcutting of over 1,000 trees in
Westchester County’s Blue Mountain Reservation. County Executive Rob
Astorino’s administration provided a license to a private corporation,
Spectra Energy, to install their 42” diameter, high-volume, high-pressure
gas pipeline through the park. Felling of trees in the 1,600-acre county
park is expected to begin in a few days.



“By approving a license for Spectra Energy to expand the Algonquin
Incremental Markets pipeline in the public park, County Executive Astorino
has not followed the State's Parkland Alienation process,” said
Assemblywoman Sandy Galef. “Today we are hoping he will recognize this error
and work with the State to remedy it.”



Assemblywoman Galef and Buchwald released and hand-delivered a
<https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7n5LCCyokSXTkVZRHRSTUE3NTA/view?usp=shari
ng> letter to County Executive Astorino demanding that he suspend or rescind
the license granted to Spectra Energy for the AIM pipeline and that the
county must follow the New York State process for Parkland Alienation.



The letter states, “We are deeply dismayed that you have granted a license
to Spectra Energy to proceed with the clear cutting of trees and other
disruptive activity to this beautiful county park without having gone
through the proper procedure for the alienation of parkland.”



The letter also notes the dangers of the pipeline being built 105 feet from
from critical infrastructure at the Indian Point nuclear power plant.
Nuclear and pipeline experts warned that if that if the AIM pipeline
ruptures, it could cause multiple explosions that could result in loss of
all electrical power and backup generation required to cool the nuclear
reactors and spent fuel pools. The experts have also noted that the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission has made serious miscalculations that drastically
underestimate the risks and dangers of the pipeline’s proximity to Indian
Point's infrastructure. These risks include the potential for a pipeline
rupture from an accident, earthquake, or terrorist attack to cause the
electricity grid at Indian Point to fail leading to a release of radioactive
material.



The letter continues, “In the case of Westchester County with Spectra
Energy, you have not requested parkland alienation from the State. To our
knowledge, neither the county nor Spectra has made any attempt to secure
alternate space for the benefit of Westchester County residents while this
parkland is taken out of commission for the public’s use and enjoyment.
Further, the extent of the destruction of the parkland suggests that
adequate safeguards and efforts to minimize the damage have not been part of
the agreement made by the County.”



A similar, and possibly illegal, licensing agreement between Spectra Energy
and the Town of Yorktown is currently the subject of a pending lawsuit in
State Supreme Court in White Plains.



Westchester County Legislator MaryJane Shimsky said, "It saddens me that
Spectra's destruction of large swaths of our parks and neighborhoods is now
imminent.  FERC and their friends in the fossil fuel industry have ridden
roughshod over principles of basic Due Process, and State laws protecting
our parkland. I join in the last-minute appeal to the County Executive, to
work with the State to save Blue Mountain Preserve and our communities from
the ravages of this unnecessary, and very risky, pipeline." 



Westchester County Legislator Catherine Borgia said, “By ignoring the
negative impact this pipeline will have on public safety and individual
property values, the County Executive is prioritizing the demands of his
campaign donors in the oil and gas industry over the property taxpayers in
the immediate area.  I hope that we can find an amicable way to protect our
environment and taxpayers while still meeting the demands of the energy
marketplace.”

Dear Friends,
 
Thanks to your generosity, our Thanksgiving Food Drive was successful and we provided dozens of meals for members of our community in need. Yesterday, I distributed the food we collected to food pantries around the 105th Assembly District. Special thanks to AT&T for donating $5,000 to the Pawling Resource Center which runs a food pantry and provides other important services to neighbors in need. Thanks also to Dutchess County Sheriff Butch Anderson and Pawling Supervisor David Kelly.

Calling Cuomo 
Dear Concerned New Yorkers,

Contact Gov. Cuomo by phone at (518) 474-8390 or email him and tell him to take a stand against accepting Syrian refugees because it is not possible to properly vet them and screen out terrorists.

At least 25 other governors have taken a stand including at least one Democrat, the governor of Obama's home state of Illinois and, at last count, eleven states that Obama carried in the last election. As governor of the state that remains the number one terror target and the state that suffered the deadliest terror attack in American history, Governor Cuomo must take a stand against accepting refugees that cannot be properly vetted for terror ties. 
2E84AD5D00000578-3320882-image-a-1_14477347828.jpg
The House Homeland Security chairman has acknowledged that we can't vet the refugees. House Intelligence committee member Rep. Peter King has said, "There is virtually no vetting because there are no databases in Syria." Governor Cuomo needs to lead and stop the settlement of refugees in New York. The FBI says it has 900 active ISIS investigations. Imagine how thin security will be spread with the addition of thousands more refugees.

Contact Gov. Cuomo by phone at (518) 474-8390 or email him and tell him to take a stand against accepting Syrian refugees because it is not possible to properly vet them and screen out terrorists.

We should ship food, water and supplies to refugees to meet any humanitarian obligations we may have, but the Syrian refugees should be resettled in that region of the world. There is nothing humanitarian about putting at risk the lives of Americans in general and New Yorkers in particular. Accepting Syrian refugees when it is impossible to properly vet them was a terrible idea prior to the ISIS attacks on Paris. To do so after at least one of the Islamic terrorists was discovered to be a Syrian 'refugee' is beyond gross negligence and the triumph of political correctness over reason and public safety.

When six Arab Gulf countries, Qatar, U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain, aren't accepting refugees, it becomes even harder to explain why New York or the United States would. As much as Americans want to help those who are suffering, we can't assure that the vetting process will catch terrorists. That means we simply can't accept any of the refugees. Governor Cuomo should take the lead and keep New York safe by blocking their settlement here.
 
Senator Chuck Schumer has said, "The bottom line is we have seen ISIS may be smuggling in some of these refugees along with those who have real humanitarian needs. But even if it’s one out 1,000, the damage would be terrible. The question is can we check?"
 
Contact Gov. Cuomo by phone at (518) 474-8390 or email him and tell him to take a stand against accepting Syrian refugees because it is not possible to properly vet them and screen out terrorists.

Regards,

Kieran Lalor
 
PS I'll be on the John Gambling Show on AM970 at 12:35pm to further discuss why Cuomo needs to act. Listen live here.

In Case You Missed it: Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan joined the call on the federal government to suspend acceptance of Syrian refugees into the United States until there is an effective vetting process in place. 

FBI Director Comey and other top security experts, including New York members of the House Homeland Security Committee, Congressmen Peter King, Dan Donovan and John Katko, have raised valid concerns about the flaws in the screening process.  

"Our first priority is the safety and security of Americans."

Read the full statement below: 

"While the plight of the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing Middle East violence is a global tragedy, last week's horrific attacks on innocent Parisians reinforces that our first priority must continue to be the safety and security of Americans.


"The placement of Syrian refugees must be suspended until there is an effective vetting process in place that prevents terrorists from seizing an opportunity to sneak into the United States. Unfortunately, government and security experts have said our current system cannot guarantee that ISIS - or others intent on harming us - would be prevented from joining the refugees sent to our communities. This is not acceptable.

"New York continues to be a top terror target even after the devastating loss of life from the September 11th attacks. We owe it to every New Yorker to do whatever is necessary to protect them from brutal terrorists who openly threaten to destroy us and our way of life." --Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan
