Thomas Kennedy-You are right but the worst part is no one cares. Mayor McCarthy vetoes his own Democratic budget, refuses to pay any City School tax and County taxes. Until the GOP get off the mat, select a new City chairman and field electable candidates nothing can improve.

People should study liberal MA next door- High Quality schools, high quality public services, now health care for all- all at 50% the property taxes of NYS- WHY? lower salaries, no double dipping retires, and oh yeah- a really big one- NO COUNTY LEVEL GOVT- Why does NYS need County govt? Other than the Dept of Motor Vehicles, and Board of elections- which both should be State run anyway- what purpose does County govt have? Next- we need to reign in the police budget, and all their perks, pension padding, overtime and uneccessary expensive high tech equiptment (tasers, computers in cars, etc) which just disengages them from the community they are supposed to police.

We can stop the overtime, lets hire more cops. And those tazers, well we can just shoot the guy with the knife and as for computers in cars, well we can hire dozens more dispatchers to run the DMV and Wants and Warrant info. Now the state that is a different story, Cuomo was going to mmake them work a 4 day week with barely and disruptions. That tells me we have at least 20% too many people working at these state jobs and you would not believe how much these civil servants make. 60,70,80k per year and usually married to another state worker. Oh its a family affair.
