New City, New York — Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann announced Friday an agreement to purchase the Rockland Country Day School campus for $4.4 million. The agreement, which will be voted on by the town council later this month, will add an additional 20.5 acres of public land adjacent to the town-owned 33.5 acre Kings Park.

Ever wonder why there’s a Nyack, Upper Nyack, South Nyack? Not to mention a Central Nyack and a West Nyack?
It can be confusing even to those of us who’ve lived here all of our lives.

Dear Governor Andrew Cuomo and Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli:
We are writing to ask your help in dealing with the catastrophic fiscal problem in Rockland County. Our elected officials at the county level have failed us. The current county executive and legislative leadership have been unable/unwilling to take the actions required to put us back on sound financial footing. During 2012, the county became insolvent. Their few attempts at dealing with the crisis have been poorly conceived and have accomplished nothing.

Clarkstown Supervisor Alexander J. Gromack 2013 discussed the Newtown, CT shooting, flood prevention projects, business district improvements, economic development and Clarkstown’s AAA bond rating in his 2013 State of The Town address delivered on Jan 3.
Today, I thought we could spend some time looking at the major accomplishments of not just 2012, but the last eight years, in addition to looking forward to 2013.
Much like the post office, neither wind, nor rain nor a once in a hundred year hurricane will keep Tuesday’s election from being held. Rockland’s Commissioner of Elections Ann Marie Kelly says polling places will be ready to go on Tues Nov 6. Polling hours in New York State are 6a-9p.
Nyack, Oct 29 (updated 10:15a) — Here are ten things you should know about Hurricane Sandy, aka, the true “October Surprise” of this election season. Bob Dylan may have said “you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” but T-Bone Walker’s lyrics to “They Call it Stormy Monday” are spot on for what Sandy has in store for us this week

Rockland County is in dire straights financially because of years of poor planning and bad budget practices. I believe the real issue is being lost in all the arguing back and forth between the county and the towns. What we truly need locally is relief from New York State spending mandates.
Taxpayers should demand Mandate Relief from our representatives in Albany if our state legislators want a pay raise.
