IN THE CITY OF
Mayor Sheehan has set in motion
efforts to reassess homeowners in
residential neighborhoods and to
rezone the entire city.
Residents should look closely at
both these initiatives. Why are
they occurring? Are they related?
Are they part of the Obama agenda
to remake city neighborhoods and
control every aspect of out lives?
The question comes down to this -
do Albany residents want to control
their own zoning or will they allow
HUD to take over city zoning in
the residential neighborhoods of
the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 12th, 13th
14th and 15th Wards?
HUD control would destroy the
city property tax base, the lions
share of which is paid by single
family residences in the above
Who will fund city government
operations and city schools if
this is allowed to happen?
and note the Sunday,Times Union
ad for employment of Census field
workers who will be at work
from March to August gathering
data which will be used to further
the HUD intrusion into local zoning
Albany homeowners and their
Common Council representatives
must become fully informed and
resist this HUD takeover of Albany
County residents, and their
representatives on Town and County
governments should do the same.
More than ever, voters need to
become informed, go to the polls
and cast informed votes rather
than staying home or dutifully
going to the polls and casting
mindless party line votes.
Your home, your neighborhood
and your Liberty will be on
the line in the 2015 and 2016
party primaries and general
