As I opened my mailbox last evening I thought I was the recipient of yet another election campaign mailer. I was wrong. It was a mass mailing from Forest City Residential Group about their proposed Echo Bay Development. The address was from their offices at 1 Metrotech Center in Brooklyn. Let the self-serving promotions begin. Pretty soon we will see the full page ads in the Journal news.
Cameroon debt forgiven, Churches for a dollar, City Yards to be moved at great expense, sweetheart deals for developers and colleges, what else is next? We have a city management system with no accountability that can only accomplish thing with deals and give-a -ways. New Rochelle City Management is nickel and diming the citizens to a point where hard working families can’t afford to live in New Rochelle where they were born and raised any longer. Residents are forced to make some hard choices while management makes one bad decision after another. That is not what they are paid for and paid very well for I might say. They receive great salaries and benefits while working and in their retirement. The citizens will be paying for poor performances for a life time. It is time for a reality check.
