Noam Bramson Candidate for Westchester County Executive in 2013 will "listen to your Ideas" but he sure doesn't give them much weight.
In his Arrogant closing speech Mayor Bramson told citizens of New Rochelle, not to question his Motives even though he has received "Campaign Contributions" for his previous re-election from Forest City's owners; the Ratner Family, That he publicly denied and challenged the public to look up, which they did. While not illegal the contributions are unethical, given the fact that Forest City was then given exclusivity and numerous extensions extensions over 6 years:
"Forest City has been involved in the bribes that led to the conviction" of Council Woman Sandy Annabi for Bribery in their last major development in Westchester County.
Earlier that a Forest City Rep "let slip" that council was going to be paid off in an epic Freudian slip.
Mayor Bramson also told us that he knows what is best and that we are just being emotional and that he knows what is the best rational choice for New Rochelle, even though highly educated residents of the entire city of New Rochelle of every relevant profession including a Former Mayor, Current County Legislator and Former long time State Assemblyman have publicly exposed the Forest City Plan not to be in the best interest of New Rochelle.
