OCTOBER 22 DEBATE
FOR NY GOVERNOR

After viewing the one and only
televised debate ( WMHT)between 
Governor Cuomo and Rob
Astorino, it is easy to conclude
why Governor Cuomo has avoided
any additional debates statewide
and why he wanted to have minor
party candidates present rather
than do a one on one with Astorino.

This is America. English is our
language, Rob. No espanol. Si?

Does anyone have a translation
of what Asterino said in Spanish
at end of his closing statement?

If Spanish speakers were viewing
the debate, is it not plausible that
they can understand English? 
If so, why pander?

America. One language. One
Country!

We are all proud of our roots.
Whatever our origins, we are
Americans now.

Aren't we?

United we stand, divided we fall.

As a property taxpayer in the
Capitol City of Albany, I am
waiting to see which gubernatorial
candidate will pledge, before
November 4,  to deliver
the 11.5 million annual PILOTS
(payment in lieu of taxes) from
the State for Harriman State
Office Campus. 

Albany could be the swing vote
in a tight election, contrary to the
polls which are directed by
Democratic hacks and parroted
by the media without analysis.

The Capitol City of Albany
is on the verge of becoming
Detroit on the Hudson.

If local Democratic officeholders
won't press the issue, the voters
of Albany will on November 4. 

The party of Dan O Connell is
no more. We are on on own!

RED LIGHT CAMERA 
BOONDOGGLE

The Albany Common Council
approved placing red light traffic
cameras at 20 intersections in
the city.

What about the rampant speeding
running red lights and stop signs
passing on the right in curb parking
lanes and numerous other traffic law
violations occurring everywhere
else in the city, every hour of every
day?

What about collecting the alleged
millions of uncollected parking fine
dollars that allegedly went uncollected
during the Mayor's tenure as City
Treasurer - last year?

The answer to all the traffic law
mania in the city includes:

* driver's exercising self control
 and practicing defensive driving

* the Mayor (or Common Council
Council issuing a proclamation or
resolution that all vehicle and traffic
laws will be strictly enforced in the
City of Albany, then directing the
Albany Police to enforce it.

Rescind Common Council approval
of the red light camera boondoggle!

KEEP LADDER ONE

Public safety and security is
a priority in the City of Albany
in light of terrorism threats and
the likelihood that the Port of
Albany and oil trains are prime
targets.

Balance Albany city budget and
provide real property tax relief 
to Albany homeowners/small
businesses by demanding that
the Governor and State Legislature
agree to making the annual
$11.5 million annual PILOTS
(payments in lieu of taxes) to
the City of Albany for the
Harriman State Office Campus
before the November 4 election.

The Mayor and Common Council
must stop going to the state hat in
hand begging for crumbs.

CSEA, PEF and state workers
need to support this demand as
well as voter residents of the City
and County of Albany. County
Executive and County Legislators.

No PILOT agreement by November
4 - no votes!  

For incumbents seeking reelection
to Congress, Governor, and State 
Legislature November 4, 2014!

You are the first responder. Save yourself and your loved ones.
