Again, great to see the Gazette Editor on board with Councilman Riggi's proposals that he has made since the beginning of these events that have brought us into the light for change. There is progress when there is tragedy and their is light shined on these issues when the press is active in bringing out the concerns resulting in action and change.

Glad to see the Daily Gazette Editor in support again of one of Councilman Riggi's requests for action. As reported in the Daily Gazette, Councilman Riggi pushed adamantly for this reassessment and fair taxing. Again Thank You Gazette Editor for your support of Mr. Riggi's proposals. Even though you fail to mention or report his involvement and push for change, You seem to address his concerns through your editorial power. Thank You!!

Selfish, narcissistic, sociopathic lying, me first, denial, enabling, no accountability...denying the right of others to live free and the right to the pursuit of happiness and the right to have any peaceable quality of life. Why are people like this, people that name their pets,their loved ones,Vic (Michael Vic) and Tyson (Mike Tyson)...two documented convicted abusers, allowed to have no accountability and a press that allows that gives them support. Where is the responsibility of the Press?...same reason selfishness and greed in this case to sell more to the public that supports this.

“It’s readily available,” he said, adding, “Most of the events have very detailed accounts in the press.”
"But the Daily Gazette had only one brief news item regarding a dog attack this year — and four dogs have been deemed dangerous. Incidents where dogs attack other dogs are rarely covered, unless one dog dies."
So when does the BS stop????.....You can ONLY make it up as you go along so so long before you drive out more people...everything is a LONG METHODICAL PROCESS...the only thing that isn't is the fast exodus of our homeowners getting screwed on their assessments!!!

Continued from the Press Release of July 17 2014:“Public safety must be a priority and while Assemblyman Tedisco moves forward with statewide legislation for a municipal Dangerous Dog Alert system, in the meantime, the City of Schenectady has an obligation to give people as much information as possible to protect their family and pets from irresponsible dog owners,” said Riggi, who has requested for the agenda and will be bringing the Dangerous Dog Alert forward for discussion on Monday’s Schenectady City Council Public Safety Committee meeting.
“Our family is devastated by the loss of our sweet dog Templeton who was truly a beloved part of our family. If I had known there was a dangerous dog on that block, I wouldn’t have walked my dog there. With the State of New York and City of Schenectady moving forward with a Dangerous Dog Alert system, this is a positive step forward for public safety. If this alert was in place then Templeton would still be with us. I wholeheartedly endorse this effort,” said Rebecca Cigal, who noted that her 15 year-old son has taken Templeton’s death very hard as the dog was his constant companion.
Tedisco also is sponsoring legislation (A.4518A), the Dangerous Dog Owners Deterrent Act that enables law enforcement to charge an irresponsible dog owner up to a felony if their dog seriously injures someone or another dog, carrying a penalty of up to two years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine.
In August 2011, a 59-year-old woman was viciously attacked and disfigured by three pitbull dogs on Hulett Street in Schenectady while walking home. The owner of the three pitbulls had been cited twice before for harboring dangerous, unlicensed dogs.
