I read this pathetic version of an endorsement and walked away knowing the "Old Gray Lady" once again compromised her principles.
The editorial board had a convenient case of amnesia when only a little less than a month ago they did a fabulous hit piece on his eminence and his efforts to obstruct justice via the so-called "Moreland Commission."
The net net? What we have become is a nation of spineless, politically correct, cradle-to-grave, spoon-fed whimps beholden to a false god and religion espoused by a political party that we once knew and admired. View Comment
"There is nothing more I want to do than be sitting at my parents’ house (in Scarsdale) and be able to order from the couch, that’s why I started Booze Carriage,”
With ISIS, Radical Islam, Ebola, Racism, Urban Crime / Blight, Income Inequality, "Global Warming," A Growing and Permanent Underclass, Illegal Immigration, Domestic Violence, and "Taxes Up the Wazoo," I am glad to see this 30-year old has his priorities in order. View Comment
The NYT reported this morning that "Mr. Marble Mouth's" book signing at Barnes and Noble "went over like a lead balloon." Little attendance and presumably little interest in his 500+ page tome...
The article also mentioned he's keeping a very low media profile which begs the question: Why?
Dreams of a coronation?
As the husband of a CNR alum, I'm not to keen on the college taking public money...It goes against the grain of being a private (emphasis on private) school of higher education rooted in the Catholic tradition. With public money, comes strings...
Why do endowments and alum financial support exist? CNR -- you disappointed me (and probably many others) by taking this federal grant.
Dear Fifth Avenue Guy,
I usually agree with you on virtually everything political. But in the case of Mr. Dillon, I remain steadfast in my conviction that the way one manages his/her personal finances is a reflection of personal character. Call me "old fashioned" -- a child of parents who lived during the Great Depression.
In an effort to maintain my principles, I intend to abstain in voting for NY State Senate.
All my best, Mr. G. View Comment
The NYT article referenced in this piece was not very flattering in my opinion.
It dredged up all of Mr. Astorino's "dirty laundry" involving his personal life. A real hit job that was so undeserving.
Why I continue to subscribe to the NYT continues to be a mystery to me after all these years.
This is an incredible revelation.
Tax liens (a paltry $8K?) and a foreclosure should trouble even the most conservative of voters.
A person who is this careless with his personal finances is not deserving of the public trust regardless of how up front he is with this disclosure.
Thank you NR Voice for bringing this to our attention. View Comment
Mr. Astorino: During your "radio debate" with his eminence, ask him when he intends to comply with HUD's mandate to re-zone and build low-income housing in these affluent communities.
I bet his eminence will defer answering this question until after the election... View Comment
These salaries are utterly disgraceful! How can anyone justify these pay packages for "Administrators"?
Want lower property taxes? Begin with drastically reducing compensation and most importantly, legacy costs associated with public pensions.
For heaven's sake, when will this madness come to an end? When we all relocate out of state? View Comment
Question: Will our fellow residents of North New Rochelle visit Ruby Dee Park, support and visit a new library, cultural center? amphitheater, etc.?
Perhaps, City Hall should first do some market research as to how a newly re-developed downtown will be received by ALL our residents -- especially, those residents who have been paying the bills in New Rochelle -- yes, I mean -- NR taxpayers (in proportion to the population) who are fast becoming a vanishing breed in this City.

When a politician refuses to debate in an open and visibly transparent forum, what does it say about his/her character?
Now, if only the "low-information voter" who is planning to vote for this "marble mouth dweeb" (had to borrow this gem from Mr. CJMSQ) could learn to connect the dots... just maybe, we would have a different outcome in November. View Comment
Think about this:
If my memory serves me right, the budget for New Rochelle's Public Library is approx. $2.5M a year (please correct me if I am wrong).
Sri Lanka? $5K raised for a "school library"? God bless these kids.
"America the Beautiful" and never forget it! View Comment
Dear Daily Voice,
I think you're beating this story to a pulp...(no pun/disrespect intended).
As a NR-resident, could we hear more about how the true unsung heroes of this town?
The everyday volunteers, the kids from Isaac Young raising $ for cancer, the police (and public servants) and their constructive role in keep the City safe, / clean, etc. -- anything uplifting would be deeply appreciated. Thank you. View Comment
There is ABSOLUTELY no place for violence of this sort in ANY high school sport (or otherwise). Shame on this (alleged) behavior! If proven guilty in a court of law, the player, his parents and the City of NR should certainly be held financially accountable to the victim and his family. Let me reiterate: Shameful behavior!
