Just 30 minutes after Fabian posts the DV commenting policy/violations, Ms. Delaney drops this gem above. Classic.
Please, please... don't remove her comment. Keep it up. Keep them all up! The community deserves to know who is hastening its slow bleed.
mdelaney, you are 100% asmith1. It's ok, you don't have to admit it. You're allowed to have an alias or ten... but you posted the same comment under both names. And when you really dig someone, you use 10-12 adjectives all in succession (like a mental patient) to describe their 'greatness' --as you've just done under both screen names the past week.

Wait-- people from all demographics commit crimes? Thanks for that newsflash, Marianne.
No one is talking about RACE here... except you. It's kinda your thing. Can't hold your own in a debate? Just call those you disagree with racist. Works like a charm every time --even though it never does. I appreciate your dedication to the race baiting however. Steadfast you are.
People are complaining about the LEGALITY with respect to who is coming into our towns, cities and entire country. Kisco home values are in the toilet. Why do you think that is? You wouldn't care, you live in Bedford. We have plenty of legal immigrants and citizens who commit crimes and have mental illnesses --why should we have to deal with foreign criminals too? We shouldn't. And that's the rub here. These guys were DEPORTED already by our country because they were deemed a danger..... and then they came back. And no one did anything about it. Now a man is dead. Dead. And rather than condemn the system that allows for this, you condemn your neighbors who object to what the village has become and what Albany and D.C. have allowed. Your contributions to this erosion are just sad at this point.
You are the absolute last person to speak for the community when it comes to this or any other issue, so don't pretend to do so on a public message board. Any vote or casual poll taken on what Mount Kisco and all the communities that surround the village think of illegal immigration and Neighbor's Link would show that the vast majority loathe them. Period.
Perhaps it's time to take that poll, community wide. View Comment
Why is the DV continuing to remove comments that don't align with the agenda of the NL/Delaney crowd? The head of the DV needs to put a stop to this, now. Free speech is being quashed in favor of an agenda.
This, all of it, this disaster that is sanctuary city America in 2015 is as a result of blurring and downright eliminating the lines between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigration in this country. Who cares about race? It's about civil society, rules, economics, fairness and the damn law. If you don't have to wait in line for something like everyone else, you care less about the rules --all of them. Whether it's loitering, public intoxication, illegally pitching tents in the woods or taking a wizz in train station overpasses... you just care less if you've been allowed to break the law at will. This is human nature.
You reap what you sow, Mt. Kisco.
Asmith1 = Mdelaney = Marianne Delaney
I want to see Marianne sell her Bedford McMansion and move to Kisco. She wouldn't dare. And why? Hmm... as if we don't already all know. View Comment
Let's see if the DV removes this comment again...
According to a March 2, 2015 “ICE Weekly Departures and Detention Report” obtained by Center for Immigration Studies expert Jessica Vaughan and shared with Breitbart News, there were 168,680 convicted criminal immigrants who had final orders of removal but who remained at large in the U.S.
Another 179,018 convicted criminal immigrants with deportation cases pending also remained at large.
While the vast majority were not in custody some were detained — namely 6,220 criminal immigrants facing final deportation orders and another 7,680 convicted criminal immigrants with immigration cases pending.
In recent years there has been a focus on the number of annual criminal immigrant releases. In 2013 the Obama administration released 36,007 criminal immigrants who had nearly 88,000 convictions. Those convictions included 193 homicide convictions, 426 sexual assault convictions, 303 kidnapping convictions, and 1,075 aggravated assault convictions.
In January, the Department of Homeland Security revealed in a 38-page document to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) showing that of those criminals released in 2013, 1,000 had gone on to commit additional crimes including, terroristic threats, lewd acts with a minor, various types of assault, DUI, robbery, hit-and-run, gang activity, rape, and child cruelty.
“The Obama Administration claims that it is using ‘prosecutorial discretion’ to prioritize the removal of criminal aliens from this country. But this report shows the disturbing truth: 1,000 undocumented aliens previously convicted of crimes who the Administration released in 2013 have gone on to commit further crimes in our communities,” Grassley said in January.
In 2014 the administration released another 30,558 criminal immigrants, who had a total of 79,059 convictions.
The convictions included in the 2014 releases included: 86 homicide convictions, 186 kidnapping convictions, 373 sexual assault convictions, 449 commercialized sexual offenses, 1,194 battery convictions, 1,346 domestic violence convictions, and 13,636 DUIs.
“When aliens released onto the streets go on to commit additional crimes yet could have been placed in ICE custody, this Administration is responsible. From January 1, 2014 to September 30, 2014, over 10,000 detainers were not honored,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said in April. “The recidivism rate for these aliens was 29 percent. Innocent citizens and law enforcement officers could be injured, maimed, or murdered due to a detainer not being issued or honored because of this Administration’s policies.” View Comment
Crime rates among illegal immigrants is lower than those of legal citizens because of the under-reporting. Most crimes that illegals commit are within their slice of the community, with other immigrants as the victims. This is common knowledge in the law enforcement community --and it's what happened in this case. Commonly, it's the sex crimes that go unreported, which are horrible. Children are being victimized. Go talk to the police about it. I have.
Stop it with the 'undocumented'... it's embarrassing. View Comment
Defend the post above with all the numbers & facts that make heads like yours spin. Go ahead.
You can't and you won't.
And if Obama ran for a 3rd term... you'd vote for him again.

Witty stuff, asmith! Joe Malicious... get it? Hahahahahahaha!!
Actually, I don't lie. That must really irk you.
Her signs were still littered around Pound Ridge, Bedford and Kisco a full TWO weeks after the election. Classy.
What's your real name? View Comment
Jogle, it appears you know very little when it comes to this town and her public servants. Have you lived here more than a few months?
It IS about political party for you, not deeds. And that's too bad.
First, Dick Lyman is one of the most effective and accomplished public servants in the history of the town. He has an actual record to stand on and leads in so many ways --including behind the scenes. His opponents know what kind of leader he is; it's daunting for them. Dick has worn literally every hat one could wear in the time he's lived here (his entire life). He's not an effective self-promoter like Ms. Boak, but that's because he's too damn busy doing his job (instead of sending out press releases). I wouldn't want to be Dan Paschkes in this election. 'Nuff said.
Jody Sullivan has volunteered in every way you can in her several decades here. She's done just about everything... but serve on our town's board. She's overqualified. Dave Dow has been in town for about two decades and his sleeves have yet to touch his wrists --they are perpetually rolled up. He is the only candidate in this race with a home and business in town. Dan P had a law office and chose Yorktown. Sherene had a business... in Bedford. The Dow family chose Scotts Corners. Is Dave a member of some 'party of no'? He wants to hurt his own business district? Or does he support measures that could actually help businesses here?
All candidates in this race should be careful about promising the sky when it comes to Scotts Corners. Our town has 5,000 people in it (1/3 of them weekenders), spread over a huge area. Local businesses compete with big box stores, Costco, Home Depot, Amazon.com, boxed.com, etc., etc. Things are not what they were. Things will never be as they were. Time to grip a little reality and stop falling for the "I will make the empty store fronts disappear" campaign promise. You cannot legislate prosperity --or ban internet shopping.
I have to believe that substance still matters to a majority of voters here.
November can't come soon enough. View Comment
One building does not make the entire business district look like a "disheveled ghost town." Most every store front on Westchester Avenue has a business occupying it. Who are you trying to fool here?
I've asked this question before and must continue to ask it: why has anyone moved here the past 10-15 years if Scotts Corners and Pound Ridge are so substandard in their eyes? None of the "critics" ever have an answer. View Comment
Please come to the town house at 10am on Saturday June 20th for the public forum on this. Sure, it's not what everyone wants to do with their Saturday morning, but it shouldn't take that long. We need less apathy and more involvement. Thanks. View Comment
This Beppe has to be the loon who wrote the letter in the Record Review advocating a thinning of the human race. Welcome to earth, Beppster. We humans in the United States do indeed multiply and many enjoy sports and public education. Sorry you're late to the party. Should your parents have used more birth control? Perhaps you think so?
If you're so concerned about environmental pollution please ask Ms. Marous to pick up her trash that is STILL out there. Signs all over Kisco -- still. The proverbial icing on the cake... View Comment
Congratulations to Brian and Colette. They will quickly earn everyone's trust.
And thanks to Mike Solomon for advocating for the taxpayers with respect to the budget we all just voted on. We are seeing a 0.62% increase rather than a 1.7% increase thanks to him. Next year, perhaps we'll get a flat budget --which will garner an even higher percentage of 'yes' votes. View Comment
Is your e-mail listed in the phone book? I didn't think so.
My home phone is listed in at least 3 different different local phone books. And it's on whitepages.com It's public information.
My e-mail however is not. It was given to the district as a way for them to contact me ABOUT MY CHILDREN. Not for them to give that info. out to advocacy groups and then have those same groups run one of their founders for school board and blast me and thousands of others with an e-mail telling us how to vote on candidates and the budget. This is electioneering.
Hear that, Christina Dochtermann and Clare Sherwood?
Nice try, though... guardhill.

Oh my, Marianne. The sheer irony of this community's most infamous fringe character congratulating anyone for staying above the "lunatic fray" is immeasurable. You have looked at the community with a straight face, on camera and told them that this country is not a melting pot and that assimilation is a dated term -- and we should not ask newcomers to the country to join that great melting pot and assimilate like everyone before them has. You have been anything but mainstream and non-toxic.
Of course, Ms. Marous has been anything but professional with this embarrassing hatchet job she put up on the DV yesterday afternoon, insinuating that Mr. Sheerin has "deep, dark secrets--." What kind of person would do that? Who wants someone on their school board who would do that? An automatic DQ in my book.
No one has made a single personal attack on Ms. Marous. They are examining her resume and the qualifications she purports to have. This is what is supposed to happen when you run for an elected position. The public has a right to question each candidate's credentials --AND DEBATE IT. If y'all can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. (disclaimer: odds are high that Ms. Delaney will somehow label this last sentence as misogynist)
Marianne, I wonder if you believe half the stuff you offer up at the microphone. It seems too unbelievable to be true. We have all tried (at least once) to see where you're coming from, to try and understand you a little better. But, in the end all we hear is the Benny Hill music playing in our minds. View Comment
There is no foundation or logic in pushing your local elected officials to enforce code violations, ask landlords to pay their fare share or even ask for a village wide reassessment? The local government is elected by and works for the people of Mount Kisco! What are you talking about? View Comment
Look at all the letters, all the comments and the resumes of both candidates. Compare and contrast them. This is what an informed voter is supposed to do. The difference in substance is jarring.
Forget the agendas and all the noise... ask what the job requires. School board trustees are tasked with keeping the administrators in check, communicating with the public in a transparent manner, representing taxpayer interests (like asking for union concessions), protecting/enhancing the classroom experience, keeping our kids safe and pushing to improve the academic standing of the BCSD. It is a thankless and difficult job. You must balance a fiduciary responsibility to residents while being committed to academic excellence.
Sheerin and Dow offer what the public seeks.
They are not the status quo candidates.
Vote for them both on May 19th. View Comment
Oh my God, is this "letter" for real? Hopefully, Justine will tell us that someone else stole her laptop and sent this in w/o her knowledge.
If not... this settles it. Someone just unmasked herself.
Vote Sheerin on May 19th. View Comment
