Monday's Memorial Day Event Expected To Be Better Than Ever

May 27, 2012 - 12:13

Here we go again. The New Rochelle Memorial Day Parade and post-parade event at Hudson Park is ready to kick-off Monday morning. This year’s parade is expected to be bigger and better than ever. Peter Parente along with the many volunteers who have dedicated so much of themselves to make this event happen are primed and ready to go.

Monroe Collage, New Rochelle Chevrolet and Sound Shore Medical Center are the main sponsors of this year’s event. However, Many other local businesses, local residents and the City of New Rochelle have donated money and time to make this year’s Memorial Day Parade better than ever as well.

New Rochelle will enjoy the company of many Fleetweek Marines and Sailors this year as they are escorted up from the USS WASP. New Rochelle has earned a well deserved reputation for spoiling our dedicated troops with food and appreciation. They will be honored in classic New Rochelle style with a special breakfast and lunch as well as thousands of thanks from appreciative citizens.

Her History Makes Me Proud To Be An American

April 18, 2012 - 07:07

I hear the voices of the heroes from the past; from New Rochelle’s proud history of service to this great country we call America. They cry out from the halls of our city’s historic Armory saying, “Well done city council”, as the 7-0 vote presents an opportunity for the city to consider a better use of the Armory, which is truly one of New Rochelle’s historic treasures.

The Save the Armory Committee has been working feverously for years to preserve her and to assure that she continues to serve the people of this great city once called the Queen City of the Sound. Yesterday’s city council vote was a major step toward this end. I applaud all who voted to give those determined to preserve New Rochelle’s precious military history the opportunity to respond to the RFP with a plan that assures she will continue to serve New Rochelle, Westchester County, New York and America as was specified when the dollar deal was made with New York State.

Another Gunpoint Robbery in the Area, Time to Take Our Streets Back!

Another Sound Shore robbery has occurred. This time in Pelham. It took place as a commuter was walking home from the train station at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28th. It is believed that this recent gunpoint robbery is connected to those that took place earlier in January and February in New Rochelle, Pelham, the Village of Mamaroneck, Town of Mamaroneck and Town of Harrison.

People in the Pelham Heights area of the Village are justifiably upset that these robberies have gone unsolved for so long. Public safety is job one for local governments. People must be able to walk on public streets without any fear. We pay huge taxes here in Pelham. These are some of the complaints of village taxpayers.

MemorialDayParade2011

The New Rochelle Memorial Day Parade is an event that New Rochelle residents have enjoyed for the past four years. Each year the parade has grown larger and better. A part of the day has also included the after-parade-event at Hudson Park. In the past this event has been filled with music, good food, military vehicles and helicopter static-display, fun for the kids and so much more.

The planning process, which is monumental, is underway for this year’s Memorial Day Parade. Remembering the sacrifices made on our behalf by our brave veterans is a most important and worthy endeavor. Honoring and showing our appreciation for the many troops who are brought up to New Rochelle on Memorial Day during “Fleetweek” is also the least we can do as they serve our country in Afganistan and other places overseas. The appreciation and gratitude they receive here in New Rochelle has become something that the troops remember and talk about for years afterword.

A Call To The Community

March 18, 2012 - 16:41

Our beloved Armory has been a part of New Rochelle’s history as well as a part of American history for generations. To those who have served our country in times of war, this place is too sacred to turn into housing. The many heroes who have gone before us and took a stand against anyone who would threaten our freedom would understand and appreciate the importance of the Armory’s history. Unfortunately, only their spirits and our memory of their selfless sacrifice remain with us. They can’t speak out. The spirits of these brave heroes’s call on us from the past to be their voice as our city government considers the fate and future of our beloved Armory and our sacred history in New Rochelle.

Next time you’re in the area of the New Rochelle Armory. Stop, park your car and take off your shoes before you step on the property because it is hallowed ground. 300 members of our military from the City of New Rochelle left their loved ones, their hopes and their dreams at this Armory as they went off to battle on our behalf and made the ultimate sacrifice.

This Campaign is Not About Jared Rice, It's About You!

October 31, 2010 - 23:50

In a desperate effort this weekend to distract voters from the real issues in this campaign for city council and get the focus on himself, Jared Rice once again, attempted to besmirch Mr. Parente. What Mr. Rice has continued to miss, throughout this entire process, is that this race for city council in District 3 is not about him, but about you, the residents and taxpayers.

This campaign for city council in District 3 is about our hard working residents who desperately need relief from the over-taxing and careless-spending policies that have been the order of the day for the current majority. A majority that has raised taxes 33.5% just in the past five years alone, and have lost touch with you the taxpayers. Just like Jared Rice, they have been more focused on party politics than on the people they are there to serve.

Thirty years of the same majority in city hall has led to stagnation, over-burdening taxes, irresponsible development, a reduction in public safety services, a lack of true sales-tax producing retail and a lack of responsible common sense budget priorities. These policies have left taxpayers, including many of our senior homeowners, in an extremely difficult position.

Change Must Come to New Rochelle on Tuesday

Change must come to New Rochelle this year. The change I refer to is the complete change in direction our city so desperately needs. A change in the way development is planned and implemented. A change in the way OUR city spends OUR money. A change that will bring our city together to begin solving EVERYONES problems, rather than dividing us further.

Why is change so important this year? We need it now because 30 years of the same majority has taxed and spent us to the point that people cannot take it anymore. During the past five years taxes have risen 33.5%. Spending priorities like $60,000 to clean statues and $140,000 to cut the tops off lily pads in Paine Lake have been the order of the day. If common sense were the standard in City Hall, during these difficult times, the money would have been better utilized to save three firemen from being laid off or to put more police on the street to keep our residents safe. So it's high time we give a new majority a chance to bring common sense, fresh ideas and more responsible financial policies to City Hall.
