Anthony Schepis, a senior at Scarsdale High School (he will be attending Fordham in the fall) and John Ringel, a senior at Hastings High School (will be attending the University at Albany) have created a new website as part of their senior internship program in my office. Think globally, shop locally. They have been visiting local businesses and interviewing the businesses. The goal: to help promote local businesses and inform not only local merchants of the campaign but to encourage Greenburgh residents to shop locally.
If you have a business in Greenburgh and want to be interviewed for the new site (and for you tube) please e mail The website: GREENBURGHBUSINESS.BLOGSPOT.COM. Let’s work hard to help our businesses survive.

A senior citizen with ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease) needs help cutting her grass. If you have a lawn mower and would be willing to volunteer your time – please e mail me and I will give you her phone number.

As this is an election year, the entire Town Board needs to review mailings being sent out by the Supervisor - he is using the Town postage budget to benefit his campaign. There's no need to spend money to send out mailings applauding Susan Boyle! The Farmers Market and his proposed Greenburgh's Got Talent contest does not merit spending taxpayer money on rediculous mailings. This is nothing more than an attempt to keep his name in print. We need to have election campaign reform. Feiner uses the Town Web site to push his campaign agendas and abuses the mailing/postage budget. We're paying for's got to end - he's got to go.

Who in the town determines whether a proposed candidate for a seat on any of the various boards within the town qualifies for such an appointment? Does the Town do background checks on their proposed candidates to these boards? They discuss the candidates and conduct interviews in executive session so that the public has no access and can not ask questions about qualifications. Every board has different criteria whether it be dictated by state legislation or by the charter and bylaws of a particular board. Does anyone check to make sure that candidates qualify. A recent appointment of a friend of Feiner's to a certain board is quite questionnable - the candidate does not meet the state mandate for appointees. The supervisor has been made aware of it and has chosen to ignore it. There should be a public, non-political advisory board working in tandem with the Town Board with regard to appointments to boards and commissions. Feiner is stacking the boards with political supporters.
