CONTROL TRAFFIC
NEWS SCOTLAND AVE
KRUMKILL RD  TO
SOUTH MANNING BLVD.

Strict enforcement of speed
limits required.

No passing on the right, no
tailgating, distracted driving.

The intersection of Lenox
Buckingham. New Scotland
and Harding is exhibit A.

Fire hydrants, utility poles
trees and residential lawns
have been damaged numerous
times by speeding, reckless
drivers.

The hydrant at Harding and
New Scotland was hit so many
times that it was moved to
its present location.

The hydrant at Buckingham
and Lenox has been hit many
times.

The crosswalk pole on the
opposite corner was  recently
wiped out.

Homeowners at 729 New
Scotland have had their hedges
mowed down by speeding
out of control vehicles more
times than they care to recall.                                                                                                             

The aging Crimson Maple
in front of 735 News Scotland
bears the scars of being hit
by trucks and city buses driving
in the parking lane. It was also
scene of a fatality a few years
ago. 

Metal from a tractor trailer
roof is embedded in a Maple
tree in front of 745 New
Scotland. Another example
of oversized vehicles passing
on the right in the parking lane.

Passing on the right is a
major hazard from the above
intersection to Krum Kill Rd.

The intersection of Euclid
and New Scotland has been
the site of several recent
fatalities with speeding
vehicles running into trees
and one into the front steps
of a residence.

A review of police accident
reports documents all of the
above and much more.

Why have the Mayor and
Common Council Members
who purport to represent
this corridor NOT acted to
address public safety issues?

The quality of life and public
safety in this corridor have
shapely declined since 1998
when it was designated block
of the year.

ALBANY SANCTUARY
CITY PRICE TAG?

Mayor Sheehan and Mayoral
Wannabe Carolyn McLaughlin
support Albany being a sanctuary
city for illegal aliens and refugees.

15th Ward Alderman Commisso
is not sure Albany is a sanctuary
city.

How much federal aid will Albany
lose because of being a sanctuary
city?

How many illegals and refugees
are already here? At what cost to
local property taxpayers?

How many are in Albany County?
At what cost?

How much federal aid does Albany
County receive?

Can Albany City with a 12 million 
hole in this year's city budget afford
to lose federal aid because of being
a sanctuary city?

Can Albany county afford the loss
of federal aid for being a sanctuary
county?

Can Albany City and county tax
payers withstand increased 
property taxes to pay the costs 
of illegals and refugees already
here, and 
the increased property taxes that
will be necessary to offset loss of
federal aid as a result of sanctuary
policies?

Are Albany City and county 
residents proud that their elected
officials, who support sanctuary 
status  are law breakers who are
violating their oaths of office?

The citizens of Albany deserve a
full accounting from City and
County elected officials of the 
numbers and costs of sanctuary 
status before June
when candidates for city, town and
county public offices in the 2017
primary and General Election begin
gathering petition signatures to
qualify for the ballot.

In addition, all candidates should
declare their stand for or against
sanctuary status.

Read this to get some idea of how
much federal aid is at stake in major
cities.
