Just returned from East End Civic Association "Meet the Candidate Night." This was my fourth or fifth such extravaganza of this busy electoral season. Credit the good people of the association for trying to educate their loyal membership and members of the general public regarding the policies and personalities at stake on election day, November 2.
However, tonight I believe I have discerned a curious new custom permeating the political landscape, in events as diverse as those of the League of Women Voters of Mamaroneck and of New Rochelle, several neighborhood and civic groups and Temple Beth El and Temple Israel of New Rochelle. Have you noticed that every one of the recent "candidates night" events for local, state and federal office (without a single exception to the best of my knowledge) has stated as its procedural policy (explicitly or in effect) that the occasion is for the presentation of views only and not an opportunity for "debate?"Read more

Korean Presbyterian Church Elder Ha discussed their consultant's drawing of the revised site plans for the church grounds at 50 Pintard Avenue on Saturday, September 18, 2010 with the Marvin Place Block Association. The plan calls for increasing the number of parking spaces from 60 to 81 which includes dedicated handicapped parking spots while not losing any 'green space'.
According to the church, the plan met with approval from the local Residence Park group, even though the church grounds are outside the historical boundary of the adjoining Residence Park area. Elder Ha said that the plan was not to ruin the green space view from Pintard Avenue. He added that many people from different backgrounds will use this church facility and that, "... the church is part of the community and we want the community to share it with us."
