ICLEI/Agenda 21 is a plan by a foreign UN-based group that runs contrary to the US Constitution, runs roughshod over our civil rights. Any local government that accepts this plan, is in act committing TREASON (which is what Benedict Arnold was shot by firing squad).
ICLEI is an organization essentially run by people that hate the US and our lifestyle. They despise that we make as much money as we do, live in 1 family houses and drive automobiles.
They want to take our homes away and have us live in little concrete blocks because it fits their view of sustainabilty. For owning a car, a one-family home and living the way we do - we would be fined and taxed into giving up our homes because we could not sustain the charges against us. No private homes, no cars, no allegiance to the US government - but allegiance to being a citizen of the world where the UN group is the only government on the globe. They also believe in population control - use your imagination as to what that could mean.
This is the whole ball of wax in a nutshell. These 'historic districts' being proposed for Southern New Rochlle are nothing more than shills for ICLEI/Agenda 21.Read more
In the March l0 issue of the Westchester Guardian
New Rochelle City Council, not the Industrial Development Agency (IDA), should grant tax abatements according to Councilman Richard St. Paul .At the February City Council meeting he stated Assemblyman George Latimer was drafting the legislation which would give City Council this power. Mayor Noam Bramson did not agree, saying that the IDA works "in concert" with the City Council and this change would put "our taxpayers at a severe disadvantage" and result in a loss of investments in the city.Read more
The past two Board of education meetings have been dominated by public speakers on the sole issue of out of district busing for student enrolled in private schools, primarily to the SAR Academy in Riverdale, NY and The French American School in Larchmont, NY. Both schools are wonderful and are highly respected institutions and many New Rochelle residents would love to send their children there, but…and this is where it gets interesting, tuition at both this institutions cost over $21,000 per student per academic year. The SAR Academy’s tuition for K-8 is an astonishing $21,300, plus a $4,000 building fund per family per year. The French American School’s tuition for k-8 is a whopping $21,400 - $23,420 (depending on grade), plus an additional $2,000 per student per year for ESL.
Now, if you can afford to send your children to any of these schools, you make more than enough to pay for busing your child to and from your home to the school. For that tuition, the school should include busing for those that need it.Read more

Organisciak and the rest of the school board are out of their minds. And don’t think that they didn’t have their hand in the sudden “technical interruption” that surprisingly cut-off live streaming while one of New Rochelle’s residents was giving it to them good.
But everyone shouldn’t be surprised as the Board of Education always tries to censor taxpayers.
This meeting was a strange one. Surprisingly the main issue was about busing, how ridicules. It’s really not about busing; it’s about necessary budget cuts vs. unnecessary budget cuts.
Why is it necessary that supervisors get salary increases?
Why is it necessary that supervisors & department heads have unlimited expense budgets?
Why is it necessary that executives & supervisors are assigned city vehicles?
Why is it necessary that the Board of Education continues paying overtime to maintenance employees?Read more
Observers of New Rochelle politics have become accustomed to Noam "Find Me a Higher Political Office" Bramson flogging phony economic development schemes. The somnolent local daily press and what passes for broadcast TV news coverage have always allowed the widest of "berths" to his illusory progress claims in carefully staged media events and windy state-of-the-city presentations. His math just doesn't add up. Never has.
Have you ever considered his economic "team's" sales tax projections? They regularly and repeatedly count on phantom consumers spending phantom dollars at phantom retailers. The actual annual proceeds always fall short, way short of budgeted projections. It sometimes seems as if City Hall swizzles its business theory/practices from the same fountain as our Community-Organizer-In-Chief sitting at Washington, DC.Read more

Incompetent DPW workers stem from one place, incompetent management. The other day, I witnesses with my own eyes and ears a DPW pick-up truck filled with four (4) men whose sole jobs were to go around and fill sand/salt barrels. The driver of the truck asked me where the barrel was. I pointed it out and said, “It was in front of that car.” Two other workers were ready, with shovels in hand, to fill the barrel. The driver, on the other hand, immediately said, “We’ll call it in and come back another time.” Laziness at its maximum capacity. New Rochelle needs to clean house, starting from the top to the bottom. Hard working tax payers are paying ridiculously high property and school taxes on incompetence. Businesses and residents are suffering during these tough economic times, while Bramson, Strome and the P.O.S. Councilpersons are being paid high salaries for “F”ing things up beyond repair. City Hall better wake up. Their lazy, do nothing actions are stemming down to workers. Their mentality is, “I don’t have to work for my salary and they can’t do anything about it.”
