HEY, Paul, what happened to this that you emailed over the gblist?

"The decision of the Westchester County Board of Legislators to approve a housing settlement with the federal government to build hundreds of affordable units of housing in wealthier neighborhoods should be followed up with some innovative, new thinking --to reduce the possibility of opposition to the implementation of the agreement.

I would like to propose that school districts & colleges, with surplus land, consider building affordable housing for teachers and school staff on their campuses. Many exclusive private schools already have affordable housing for teachers and staff on their campuses. These apartments help the schools attract better teachers. At the same time - if educators are living on campus they are more likely to devote time helping students during after hours with school related projects, clubs, sports activities. This suggestion can be a win-win for everyone. The schools get better teachers. Currently, few teachers can afford to live near the schools they teach at because Westchester is so unaffordable.Some of the better teachers are choosing schools in other counties or states. The teachers win because they get affordable housing in a great county. The children win because teachers will have more time to spend helping them. Better schools enhance property values so the homeowners win too!
Westchester County could also provide some financial incentives to schools that agree to build affordable housing on campus.
It's my hope that the community, elected officials will work together to make affordable housing happen with the least amount of controversy.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor"

And as for this networking event for which you also sent to the Town's email list to promote a business venture charging $10 a head and after one drink, the Bar/Bistro will be happy to sell the unemployed more...does this seem like a business that the Town should be involved in promoting? When is your next election filing due?

This is your website but you identify it as the website of the Town Supervisor of Greenburgh. It is time to put on the brakes.

Maybe Westchester is "so unaffordable" because it has the highest property taxes in the country? Perhaps Paul should be creative about addressing this problem - about which he can actually accomplish something!

Paul's Fire District consolidation committee has its first big decision to make tomorrow. Do they include a study of the Fire Protection Districts or don't they. My guess is that Feiner has already ordered Hochberg not to. Feiner does not want the taxpayers to know that the citizens of the Fire Protection Districts are funding the Villages!!! Yes, that's right, their tax dollars are being gobbled up by the Villages and NOT for their fire protection! State Law dictates that only up to 35% of the contract amount can be given over to the Village Fire Departments for Fire Protection. Remember those words "up to." That means that by LAW, a MINIMUM of 65 cents of every dollar that the citizens of the Fire Protection Districts pay out in taxes remains with the Villages!!!!! Shhhhhhhh! Feiner does not want that info out there for public consumption. Feiner is raping the Fire Protection Districts in order to fund the Villages!!!! Is this why several of the Fire Protection Districts are run at a defecit Paul???????
