This is the move...Croslan is policy driven,she's unsung in the profession with a lot of knowledge....#good luck..
Davis doesn't live in Peekskill for one,and all that chest beating about the Tenant Council is BS, they are fighting over missing funds/dues amongst each other..not to mention the so called tenant council is not HUD recognized..
@Peekskill Truth...It is not true that Pauline was ever evicted..I will say this the Housing Authority will finally get a ED that is policy driven,and enforces them too...ALL OF THEM..#yayyyyyyyy View Comment
The program also sponsors field trips to places such as New York City to visit museums and the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Plaza. There are plans to take a group of children to see the movie "42" about Jackie Robinson in the coming weeks as well, Smith said. ...What she going to do put them in(4 Bynum) Taxis like she just did to take them to the movies?! she didn't have the decency to ride with them she rode behind them in her car..she never comes out of her office,she doesn't even like kids...to top it off she didn't have child care council approval,and her reason for running the program is that Phipps owed her a favor,she is not qualified to run such a program and it's wasteful considering the city provides after school programing at the Kiley..what BS this city has become under the thumb of Davis and Mary Foster and Co...

@PeekskillTruth...Bitter?!..lol Not...what I am is sad for the children,another generation lost..lost to the streets...Our children are befuddled,they having children they neither want or understand...Sad..Our befuddled children have no respect or give respect because the grown ups around them don't have respect for themselves..No "shabuka" not bitter but ashamed of what's going on in housing..have you read the Patch,have you read the names?!! I'm not bitter because all I tried to do to is help prevent, but your leader "Mr Chameleon"stuck his nose in it. a man who walked out on his own children,a brother who told me his own sister deserved to be put in a mental institution.and like he orchestrated against Phipps he lied,got tenants to go to City hall and lie about me harassing their children,but wait all that got up to the podium children have been to prison,are in prison or waiting to go to prison some facing Life..10 yrs mandatory minimum...No..I'm not bitter I'm mad as hell...You idiots are stroking this punk activist ego,and pushing his agenda of Manipulation and Exploitation all the while he has done nothing...nothing in his 30yrs of BS to enrich the "Hood"..I look in the eyes of some of the children and there's no energy..I watch their social skills and they can't grasp...I watched as a young girl child "spit" all over another child,you have another who has tried to commit suicide because of being teased by her peers because of what her "sicko"dad did to her..grown ups out in the court yards of the HA properties fighting each other over some "he say-she say" mess..drinking and drugging in front of children(something I never did when I was out there)...I could go on and on..what I and others tried to do is right some wrongs that we contributed to and because it sounded to much like right so in came your almighty "Malcolm Not" holding hands with this Administration that he now claims are his enemies..if you fools think by a reporter distorting makes it right you're wrong.."ain't nothing hid that won't come to light" while I don't know "flyonthewall" he/she is absolutely correct,and you are one of the bad specimens that have come out of it...Lastly...I will continue to speak out against the BS you'll are putting out there and will continue to do what ever I can to help those that are asking,and there's plenty that want to use the hand up,unlike you who wants to continue looking for the hand outs....No!..I'm not bitter....#youcan'tstealmyjoy...
Are you serious right now?!!! lol..you idiots have a room full of strangers claiming to be there to ensure your rights,and you think what goes on down there is secret?!!..I don't need anybody to tell me what I already know,it's been the same thing for the last 40yrs same ish different day..do you honestly think that those Ohhh so nice guilt ridden visitors can change anything for you?.#bethechangeyouwanttosee..I don't care who you believe the gifts of generosity and inclusion are drying up and what you'll need to be doing is preparing..The only people mad at me for telling the Truth are those that are living a lie...you live in public housing it's all public info..and soon the lies that have been created past and present will be revealed in a court of law..........I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice. Tumbling down the rabbit hole?...see ya in court....... View Comment
@Peekskill Truth...the minutes are recorded lets foil them and let them reveal what was said...and as far as the Truth..you'll don't want to hear the truth..lets start with the history of the folks that are constantly complaining...start by rewinding the crime stats from 35 yrs ago and read the names today of the ones being arrested..and if you had the courage to come on with your name it would give some credence to your BS..but you won't because you are a coward...No matter who they put down there they won't be satisfied,because they don't want to be accountable..like I said.."Once you turn the keys of reality over to someone else who doesn't have to live with the consequences you become a slave"...#givetotheunitednegrocollegefundthemindisaterriblethingtowaste...

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers:
I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I'm A Victim
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority......Nancy O' Connor is not Bill Florence's cousin.....#liars..oh Blah...Phipps is the secretary of the board he has a right to be there until his departure....If some of the constant followers were to sweep in front of their own front door the city would be a lot cleaner...

@sickandtired..at the end of the day there are some things you just can't help but talk about.Some things we just don't want to hear,and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer.Some things are more than what we say,they're what you do.Some things you say cause there's no other choice.Some things you keep to yourself,and not very often,but every now and then some things simply speak for themselves.When someone is nasty or treats you poorly.don't take it personally.It says nothing about you but a lot about them....HATE..it has caused a lot of problems in the community,but it has not solved one yet....#Godhasaplan...

First off Ms Allen was never an employee of the Housing Authority(she gets a disability check) she like many others were allowed to help with leaf and snow removal.,and they got paid for it.
As far as appealing any action against tenants by the authority it is in their lease that they have a right to grieve.
Her daughter who sought advise from a tenant removed herself from her mothers lease,citing that she(her mother) kept up "to much mess"..
As far as the by-laws the only binding by-laws are the ones from 1989 that is registered with the State/HUD,now since 2004 they have been changed several times for whatever reason,from 2008 I can't attest to how many times they have been changed.
Finally, as far as this being "Professional" journalism..lol..when I saw Cusano kiss Ms Allen up on City Hall steps this past January I knew he was all in..so professional I don't know,partisan yes.....
Once again:If you ever want to stop being miserable, you have to change your thinking. Everyone has the capability to change the way they are thinking, but not everyone is able to decide to stop thinking this way. Many of us don't realize that change requires some form of motivation or some sort of leverage.
We all need something to hold us accountable for the changes that we need to make in our lives, and once we can feel excited about not letting down who or what is holding us accountable, we will be able to live in the world of change that we truly want in our lives. Stop being miserable, there are too many opportunities in life to be happy. There are too many alternatives to depression, and to unhappiness, but you have to choose not to be! Quit allowing stress into your life, and start allowing what you really want in your life to take over your thoughts.
