Ball is an embarrassment to our community. He found himself a job that will provide him with lifetime medical benefits, now he fumbles around making brash statements that he thinks make him special. Not a very articulate individual, a buffone with a pulpit. He should be out of office soon, but he will take all his benefits. View Comment
Maureen is the best! Glad to see her get such recognition.
Always positve, always willing to help others. Gives a ton of her time to help, willing to stick her neck out too.
Congratulations! View Comment
You are correct, I did not say anything about the golf courses that the county owns.
Not sure why you feel the need to describe me as "someone who does not appreciate history and culture and are limited, as a person", but that is not my problem. I support many worthy cultural venues and programs. I have lived in Westchester for 56 years. Playland being "significant to the history of Westchester" is an opinion I do not share. Determining that the Playland buildings be designated landmarks was/is a mistake. We could have a grand arguement over the historical significance of the buildings, but the place is just not that important.
Fix up the beach, plant some trees and grass, find amusement elsewhere. Open space along the shore would be a wonderful thing.
Good luck with your efforts, but you really need to temper comments if you expect to win support for this or any other effort. View Comment
I did read the petition. Not interested in the county turning over the place to an OPERATOR. That would suely include some sort of sweetheart lease with all sorts of loopholes and liabilty stuck on the county taxpayers. I have no confidence that the county board is capable of oversight as the property owner.
The property, buildings, boardwalk, parking lot, beach front,,,, everything, should be SOLD. And please don't start with the historical significance angle, those buildings are single use money pits.
Perhaps your proposed "operator" could work with a private equity fund/group or some sort of REIT to buy the place. The funds are flush with cash. If the operators business plan is sound, the good folks interested in saving the place as an amusement park can partner up with such an entity and buy the place from the county. View Comment
Westchester County needs to get out of the amusement park business. Sell the place as soon as possible. No sweet lease deal to an operator, just get out and use the proceeds to pay down debt.
Perhaps some Rye area residents that love the place so much should get together private funding and they can run the place to their hearts content. Any consideration to continue to involve our county board of legislators in any ongoing oversight is silly. These folks are a laughing stock. View Comment
Please.. Attorneys’ higher standards? Lawyers are the biggest manipulators of the rules of fairness and common sense in our society. Do a little research on lying Roger Clemens and his high priced thug bully lawyers. The truth does not matter to attorneys.
Don't even mention attorneys in the same statement with role models
We can all agree that anyone with known emotionally disturbed behavior problems should never be anywhere near any gun.
Expand that to the awesomely stupid, obvious idiots that clearly cannot be regarded as ever being of any intelligence,,, such as john.real.965. If such a bizarre individual has a firearm permit, alert the authorities!
Good for Ms. Perez and Mr. Kaplowitz! Mr. Jenkins now going to jump up and down demanding a do over? This is not a game Mr. Jenkins. You are a breathing waste of money and exhibit no leadership skills. Keep on walking, the county does not need your leadership and lack of insight to provide any savings solutions.
$3 to $4 Billion?? BILLION?? That's a lot of steel, cement, dredging and manpower. Looks like a lot of public servants and construction folks are going to get rich off of this boondoggle. Start another poll to estimate the cost over-runs. And another to name this thing, maybe something like, The Gravy Train Bridge. View Comment
