Hoping to hear from you!
But now that they’re in, we love them.
First, they are a big improvement over those muni-meters where you have to schlep back and forth to put a ticket in your car window…especially in the wintertime when the pavement is icy.
The stalemate in the New York State Senate has ended. With the gridlock over, more than 130 important bills that affected localities across this state and allowed them to hold the line on property taxes have been passed.
This included legislation that was critical to Nassau’s fiscal health, and the extension of the Power for Jobs program, which is responsible for more than 240,000 jobs across New York State.
It was an average, ordinary Monday morning. On my way to work, I stopped at the post office and mailed some letters. Then I stopped at Deli on the Green to buy a bagel with butter. While I was waiting for the bagel, I picked up a copy of the Times. When the deli clerk asked me if I wanted anything else, I showed him the paper, which was tucked under my arm.
He rang up the sale: $1.25 for the bagel and 50 cents for the paper. I handed him two dollars and he gave me back a quarter. I hadn’t even made it to the front door of the deli, when I realized a mistake had been made. The deli sells the Post, Newsday, and the Times. Unlike the other two, which sell for 50 cents, the Times cost $1.50. The clerk had undercharged me by a dollar.

It is my hope that by the time that you read this, the stalemate that has gripped the Senate will be over.
Over the last few weeks, the residents of the State of New York have unfortunately seen government at its worst. On June 8, the Senate Republicans, with their new leader, Pedro Espada of the Bronx, derailed the end of the legislative session with a poorly thought out coup attempt.
