Education has been formalized as a state function since the tenth amendment to the United States Constitution was passed. The amendment stated "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." States, as long as they comply with the United States Constitution, remain in charge of education.
A reminder that the "combined meeting" of the N. R. Citizens Reform Club and the N. R. Confederation of Neighborhood Associations (CNA) is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, May 28th at 7:30 PM.
The meeting will be held at the American Legion Post 8, 112 North Ave, New Rochelle, in the 2nd floor meeting hall.
Topics for discussion and speakers are as follows:
Bob McCaffrey will lead the discussion on Iona and Monroe Colleges re dormitories and downtown parking
Former NYS Assemblyman Ron Tocci will give updates on the Echo Bay and Forest City Residential development.
NR City Councilman Lou Trangucci will discuss the potential sale of Avalon on the Sound East (Avalon 2)
A question-and-answer period will follow each topic. The meeting, as always, is open to the public.
