One must reflect on the day when former Republican turned Democrat Assemblyman Mike Spano won the nomination for Mayor of Yonkers over Yonkers City Council President Chuck Lesnick to recognize the ingredients that would consume the demeanor of Yonkers governance in a manner which should make Yonkersites proud were it not diminished by its vindictive conduct. The directive chosen by Mr Lesnick in his guiding the Yonkers City Council for the past seven years has not yet worked to Mr Lesnick’s purpose. Even before his taking office, Mr Lesnick believed it would best serve him to enable and appease the strong mayor form of government of then Mayor Phil Amicone. In time, Mr Lesnick chose to continue his debauched conduct by totally submitting to directive expressed to him by Mr Amicone. Mr Lesnick eviscerated the very transcript our forefathers defined for this nation by delineating the deliberate balance of separation of power within government, that is, an executive, a legislative, and a judicial branch separate from one another. Mr Lesnick squandered his legitimacy and fiduciary responsibility by not acquiescing to the demands of his office. Mr Lesnick did not well execute the responsibilities demanded of him as expressed by his resume
ALBANY, NY -- January 18, 2013 -- “I congratulate Senator-elect Cecilia Tkaczyk (left) on her win after this extended electoral process and I welcome her to the Senate Democratic Conference. The mandate for a Democratic Senate just got stronger as 33 Senators were elected on the Democratic line this past November.

The Senate Democrats reaffirm our commitment to enacting this agenda including moving the economy forward, enacting real campaign finance reform, raising the minimum wage, standing up for women's health and equality and passing the Dream Act.”
Westchester County is now engaged in the 2012 Election Day effort with respect to various political offices. Under the shadow of this year’s efforts is the need to set the table for the Westchester County Executive race in 2013. Conjecture as to the political fray is divided, as it always is, between the disparate political parties that are integral to making or breaking many a campaign effort. Incumbent County Executive Rob Astorino will vie for a second term bathed in believing his Republican and Conservative base will afford him enough support to insure his endorsement by these respective parties. The Democratic Party and Working Family Party are likely to be supportive of prospective candidates like Westchester County Board Legislator Chairman Ken Jenkins, among other favorites. Missing from this alphabet soup of parties in place is the party not aligned with a “favorite” son, The Westchester County Independence Party.
YONKERS, NY – A non-aggression pact has been consummated to return New York State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins (right) and New York State Assemblymember Shelley Mayer (left) to their respective office. The non-aggression pact reveals former Nick Spano’s (center) hand in controlling these disparate seats to serve Nick Spano’s vision. Nick Spano’s vision is self serving, devoid of any concern over whether he has pushed the sensibilities of Republicans or Democrats, or even the lesser known parties. He seems uncaring over whether he has riled people or not. It’s all about Nick!
“Al, keep your nose out of WNY [West New York] politics or I will expose your underbelly. You are a spineless fraud and you're going down with Skelos. Did you have fun at Andrew’s $50k party? You are such a low life parasite. It's all about money and you could care less about the people and Republican principals. What are you going to do when I tell the people that you were the prime mover of Andrew's Gay Marriage bill so he could pound his chest as the most powerful governor the state has ever known and you could have access as a lobby for the big buck clients you extort?”
