We do not need a Mayor in New Rochelle. The city is a corporation and it is run by a paid City Manager. He makes all administrative decisions and makes policy suggestions to the elected body that is City Council. Simple. We do not need a Mayor. We do not need Noam Bramson!!!!
Over the next several weeks, we will begin a signature campaign to get rid of the Mayor position in New Rochelle. The elimination of his position (and salary) will hopefully be enough to save one firefighter position. New York State Election Law, section 4-108 and Municipal Home Rule Law Article 3, section 20-28 allows for citizens to file for a referendum to be placed on the ballot in Nov 2010.
This will be a grassroots effort and it is our hope that the community will respond. This effort will transcend political parties and will highlight the unethical behavior of Noam Bramson. Thank you all for your anticipated participation and support. All we will need is your signature.
