While this article was published as originally submitted, it was eventually edited due to spacing limitations. Out of respect for my abiding by this requirement, I am adding as a comment, the two removed paragraphs:
"Governor Andrew Cuomo was not in attendance. He had been visiting the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico on a campaign tour the day before. A
call to his re-election headquarters asking to comment on the Honor
Flight was not returned."
"Terrence Murphy, candidate for the New York State Senate Seat in the
40th District, also took part in the Honor Flight as a volunteer guardian to escort the Veterans during their daylong visit to Washington."
In regard to my fact checking which included contacting Mr. Cuomo's campaign office as well as that of Justin Wagner, candidate for the State Assembly for the 40th District, it should also be noted Mr. Wagner was unable to attend. According to his election staff, he was taking part at a campaign rally in Mount Kisco Saturday morning.
Weren't these the same legislators that pushed the casinos as the cure-all for NYs problems? And now they don't want them?
For any casino to thrive, it'll have to be close to NYC. NJs planning on putting new casinos at the Meadowlands because many are closing in Atlantic City.
Why would anyone travel to the Catskills when they can hop on a bus or train to the Meadowlands?
I really hope NY doesn't have to bail out these casinos in 20 years.
Why don't our legislators lower taxes and bring in some manufacturing business back into NY? Right now our taxes are so high the only companies moving here are getting big big tax breaks.
Cuomo's got to go. ABC. Lets vote Rob Astorino in November, I've had enough of this BS. And while your at the booth, vote for a Republican Senator like Joe Dillon. You'll be glad you did.
NYC has the largest Liberian community in the US. The idea that Ebola won't get here is laughable. As a first responder I can tell you that NYS has done nothing to help Westchester County first responders with regard to equipment OR training. Westchester is a community of volunteers and most of us are starting to get a little scared. When that happens you will see the response level of volunteer EMS and Firefighters drop. When that happens to quote the famous song... "who ya gonna call?"
