Did the town board even have a vote on MKMG? They certainly have not voted on Costco yet, it's still at the Planning Board. Murphy hasn't done a thing to bring in more businesses. Let's hear what he's doing to get something into the old Food Emporium. View Comment
Personally, I am really annoyed by Murphy's mailers constantly going after Wagner for his employer's clients. He works for a huge law firm. He's not even a partner. Does Murphy think that people are so mindless that they hold Wagner responsible for clients of his employer, over which he has no control? View Comment
So obviously stupidity is not a criminal offense, but there must be some way to prosecute some of these clowns and put them in jail.
From another story:
"Westchester County police said the trucker was not using a commercial GPS that would have steered him off the parkway – where trucks are banned.
Instead, Knight told police he was investigating using Google Maps on his smartphone."
So if they can get him on using the phone while driving, is there anything they can do other than a fine? Perhaps change the law so it's a felony if property damage over some amount is caused while using the phone? View Comment
Sorry, I should have been clearer. I do not believe that number, or anything in the ad. Nor do I believe that Murphy had anything to do with Costco wanting to come here;.
And there's no need to be so obnoxious. View Comment
I won't be convinced that this is actually moving forward until the town board votes to approve it, and maybe not even until I see them breaking ground. Certainly keeping my fingers crossed. After all, I heard a Murphy commercial on the radio taking credit for $250m of new development in Yorktown (if you can believe that), and I'm guessing that this is a big part of that number.

Please explain to me what Murphy has had to do with the widening of Route 202, never mind any of the development projects the article mentions. The Town Board has not approved Costco yet and we are fortunate that they haven't given up and moved on to Plan B given how long it's taken them to get thru the Planning Board process. The JV Mall plan was approved and he did vote for that (with the shape it's in, even anti-development people would have approved it), but there is no sign of them actually following thru with the plan and the last I read they're making revisions to it before starting on it (IF they ever start).

Yorktown doesn't have that much of a Jewish population (14% in the latest data I've been able to find online). I wouldn't expect him not to campaign today.
There's lots of things to criticize with him, but that's not one of them. View Comment
The problem is that the opponents came in with all sorts of BS complaints that need to be responded to. If you read the Yorktown News a couple of weeks ago, one of the columnists is an opposition leader, and he actually brought up the gas station again, even though no one ever said a thinG about a 12 pump Shell station that opened right on Route 202 a few years ago and could actually affect traffic (if they were cheap and people wanted to wait in line to get gas there, which they aren't). I believe that all of the responses are finally in. My fear is that there is a lawsuit filed after it (hopefully) gets approval, which would delay it even further. And you're right, other chains must be looking at this and deciding that they do not want to do business in Yorktown, which probably is an added benefit for the opposition.
BTW I don't think that the majority of Yorktown residents (or the town board) are anti-business, just a few loud and apparently well-financed people. View Comment
Why is there no "like" button on this site? And it looks like he got the nomination (just happened last night), and I guess because it's so late there can't be a primary? I found this in the press release "Yorktown Councilman eager to take his record of cutting taxes and economic development to Albany." Now stop laughing. View Comment
His lawyer represented A-Fraud and Michael Jackson? Well, with a client list like that, we can be sure that Greg is innocent. BTW, I will miss this sort of thing when Greg bids us a fond adieu and rides off into the sunset. I won't miss him being our State Senator, of course. View Comment
He's an embarrassment to his constituents as well. Let's not forget the circus he presided over when he claimed he hadn't decided how to vote on the Same Sex Marriage bill and managed to get his face on national TV shows who actually believed his stunt. View Comment
