Dear Friends & Neighbors:
I hope you and everyone you know and love is safe after the devastating effects of Sandy. While the storm was tough on New Rochelle, it is very sad to see how many others in NYC and NJ were hit much harder than us. Let’s hope everyone in our community is restored to power as quickly as possible, and our thoughts and prayers are with all those in our region devastated by this terrible storm.
Despite the storm, Election Day is still this Tuesday, and I want you to know why the race for the 37th State Senate District is so vital to New Rochelle’s future.Read more
Our prior state senator was a Democrat that was in minority of state senate for 26 of her 28 years. For New Rochelle, we have estimated that having a senator in minority for close to 3 decades cost the city TENS of MILLIONS of DOLLARS in lost state aid. Less money to schools, less money to city and higher taxes for property owners. It is well known that the majority parties in state legislature (Reps in senate and Dems in assembly) control the purse strings and majority members get more money for districts.
If we elect Latimer, another Dem, there is no question that New Rochelle will still not get its fair share of state aid because he will be in minority - and the taxpayers will be on the hook as always.
If we elect Bob Cohen, we will have a smart and energetic reformer in the majority ready to fight every day to protect and improve New Rochelle. We made a big mistake 28 years ago - suffered for it ever since - please don't make the same mistake on 11/6!
If you care about the future of New Rochelle - Bob Cohen is the only choice for state senate. Vote for New Rochelle on Election Day instead of voting for your party!Read more

We over at the New Rochelle GOP strongly support Bob Cohen.
However, we have to ask the following question:
Why is anyone in New Rochelle voting for Latimer? He has done absolutely nothing for New Rochelle in the majority of State Assembly - why would we send him back to Albany to be in minority of State Senate where he will be (shocking this is possible) even worse?
New Rochelle has lost tens of millions of dollars in state aid with Suzi Oppenheimer in minority of state senate for 28 years - we had to pay higher property taxes because of this - don't make the same mistake twice. Send Bob Cohen to Albany so that New Rochelle finally gets its fair share of state aid.Read more
NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Independent New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today endorsed businessman and state senate candidate Bob Cohen (R-C-I) in his race for New York's open 37th state senate district in Westchester County.
Mayor Bloomberg cited Mr. Cohen's independence and his unwavering commitment to property tax relief and pro-job-growth policies as chief reasons for his endorsement.
"Westchester voters who want property tax relief, mandate reform, and pro-job-growth policies in Albany have a superb candidate for state senate this year in Bob Cohen," Mayor Bloomberg said. "Bob Cohen is an independent thinking businessman with the guts to stick up for Westchester taxpayers, and to say 'no' to the special interests and party bosses. Bob Cohen has my support in his race for state senate, and I ask that you give him yours as well."Read more

NEW YORKERS STAND AGAINST AUTO INSURANCE FRAUD
ENDORSES BOB COHEN FOR STATE SENATE
New York -- Oct. 2012...New Yorkers Stand Against Auto Insurance Fraud (NYSAIF), an organization of concerned New York drivers working to stop rampant and dangerous auto insurance fraud in New York State, has endorsed Bob Cohen for New York State Senate.
Auto insurance fraud -- which includes staged accidents that have killed innocent victims -- has cost New York drivers more than a billion extra dollars in auto insurance premiums over the past five years. New York drivers now pay 54% more for auto insurance on average than drivers in other states.
No Fault Auto Insurance fraud is one of the fastest growing crimes in New York State. Criminal enterprises, working with corrupt doctors, game the system for hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Last year, two major crime syndicates were busted in New York by federal and state authorities, but they are believed to be just the tip of the iceberg, NYSAIF says.Read more
