Smoke and mirrors regardless of whether you reside in the southern or norther tier. Case in point "lowest small business tax in one hundred years" whoppie- do..... He just raised the minimum wage - a defacto tax/drain/fine whatever you wish to call it on the small business owner. They either pay up or lay people off.... If they are shorthanded already (which is most likely the case) they go out of business. View Comment
And since Cuomo disbanded Moreland, pick up where they left off..... Too close for comfort Andy? Your pathetic attempt to look like a big man by shutting down New York for some flurries in the middle of winter shouldn't distract from the truth at hand. Equally corrupt. View Comment
Those Dems with the loudest voices demanding outster DIRECTLY benefitted from Silver. HE FUNDED their campaigns ensuring he control all bills and votes before the Assembly. They are equally culpable. If charges are not brought against them for taking tainted money, they must be voted out of office. All should be put under rigorous scrutiny - now is the time, Bharara is the man to do just that.

Now expand the investigation to cover all the pols who were enriched through him- Amy Paulin comes to mind in our area. He supported all of her fundraising and kept her campaign coffers full View Comment
Can't fathom the relief these parents and the community are feeling right now. God bless all of the volunteers who persevered. So thankful this young lady is safe and that the church took her in and protected her. I hope she and her family are able to resolve their issues and appreciate and cherish each other. Too many of these situations have a tragic ending. View Comment
The reality is, if he hadn't been PUBLICLY found out, most teams would sign him. The Commish and the owners have turned a blind eye for decades. And yes, Goodell has worked at the NFL for decades, so he's seen it all. View Comment
The financial stress living in NY has become unbearable. I love this state! That we work 3 jobs just to stay afloat makes no sense. Can't all voters regardless of party please recognize things needed be this way? Cuomo is at the root of this - I'm sorry to say that, but he and his so-called solutions have made things worse and will continue to do so. Astorino has stopped the speeding tax train in a large and influential county. He CAN do it state wide. View Comment
This is absurd. Honestly answer the following question 'If the woman in the elevator footage had been a stranger, what charges would be appropriately filed?'. There is something amiss with the DA, and anyone who rationalizes the assault as a 'private matter' View Comment
Leonard, you are obviously very vested in this race. You have an angry nasty intolerant edge that is really off putting. I will just say, please, by all means, hold on to your beliefs. It's your right. Our beliefs are rooted in some hard and fast realities - NY has lost two congressional seats as people have fled, despite spending $200 million in taxpayer dollars to lure manufacturers here, our output has dropped to a measly 6%, for ANYONE losing a job, the NY cost of living decimates ones savings. This is what we believe and know as fact - it is an indicator of leadership or lack thereof. It would be nice if you could at least open your mind to that and have a productive dialogue instead of trying to one up people. That wins the battle and loses the war- theoretically we as NY residents are in this together. View Comment
Additionally, Mr Dillon is being demonized by a man who is apparently being investigated by the State Ethics Committee for misuse of funds. This is a political tactic used by Latimer to obscure his actual wrongdoing.
So as a Ranking Member, Latimer IS squarely responsible for keeping hundreds of millions of dollars from school districts! We hard working people, who work two and three jobs, have our hard earned money confiscated by these greedy politicians, whose only motivation is currying favor and power grabs. Then Latimer has the nerve to withhold it! Chronically 'poor districts' like Yonkers are due over $100 million. They are kept in a state of crisis by these manipulative do-nothing politicians like Latimer and Cuomo. View Comment
There is no revelation, this is irresponsible reporting. The taxes were being disputed, for good reason. The IRS messed up and there is no longer a tax issue. As for the home, the Dillons have been painfully forthright from the get-go. He specifically said he and his family are juggling since losing his job - just as many New Yorkers have had to. He did north wrong and is being demonized. View Comment
This is a story put forth by the Latimer Campaign.
A) the only part of the tax story people should be alarmed about is that the IRS messed up! The issue has been settled - this taxpayer had a right to dispute, did, and won. FYI he wasn't even living in VA when the taxes were levied. Bureaucrats at their best
B) Dillon had nothing to do with the meltdown. But because of who he was employed by, people had to be let go. Where is people's compassion? His family has had to start over. For that reason alone he understands people's struggles in this state.
C) Dillon did nothing wrong - Latimer on the other hand is apparently being carefully looked at by the state ethics board. Misuse of funds.
D) Latimer has done nothing for our Village - nothing. He has voted to raise taxes on every front and is only fighting to get his 20 years in so he can get a taxpayer-paid pension. View Comment
This is stupid. They are making the kids STUPID. Learn to use pen(cil) and paper. So many studies show neural synapses are activated by manual note taking AND NOT activated with these ubiquitous digital screen devices. Btw... Many of the teachers hate them, and on another note, why would anyone trust Google these days? View Comment
