Congratulations to GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy! City and State wants to know Can a Trump-loving upstater bring back the New York GOP? The answer is a resounding YES!
Westchester residents, if you get your Christmas and Hanukkah shopping done in July, you will probable save a bundle, since Governor Cuomo agrees with Democratic County Executive George Latimer, that Westchester needs an increase in the sales tax percentage to bring it up to 8.375%. It is effective on August 1, 2019. Save money; get you shopping done now.
Jimmy Vielkind writes in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) about the Progressive Agenda that Members of the Legislature hope to accomplish in the new legislative session. It includes, but certainly not limited to legalizing commercial gestational surrogacy, higher prevailing wages and extending to private construction projects. Chairman Kassar noted that “with Democrats in control of the entire state government, a ‘borderline socialist agenda’ could advance unchecked.” Chairman Kassar also noted that he is already recruiting candidates for the 2020 elections.
This is a very disturbing article; Judith Clark knew the Brink’s robbers were ready to kill. Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo wanted this woman released and she was just in time for Mother’s Day. It is ironic, that a woman who sent all the wrong messages to her daughter, was able to celebrate with her on Mother’s day, while Michael Paige, son of slain Brink’s Guard Peter Paige (who set the right example for Michael) hasn’t celebrate a Father’s Day since 1982 and will never be able to again. Governor Andrew Cuomo wanted her to be paroled and she was. Justice has not been equally served.
