Do you want to start your day by falling off your chair? Here is a quote from New Rochelle's Mayor Bramson in The Journal News on 1/24/13 in trying to criticize County Executive Astorino:
“We need a coherent strategy for economic development and job creation, and it’s painfully apparent that the administration does not have any clear plans for achieving those goals.”
This has to be a joke...right? Noam cannot possibly be serious? He has been a councilman and mayor since 1996 (17 years), and it is fair to say the New Rochelle has been in a continued downward spiral since then when it comes to "job creation" and "economic development." It is fair to say that during Bramson's political career he was part of a serious of horrible decisions, in particular massive tax breaks for developers and corporate welfare that has crushed New Rochelle's homeowners, which has done tremendous damage to New Rochelle's downtown and long term damage to this city's future. It is fair to say that Noam Bramson has been an utter disaster when it comes to economic development and job creation here in New Rochelle. It really is clear that Noam will say just about anything to get elected County Executive and the level of shamelessness and fraud in his quote is breathtaking.
Noam, to quote the great Republican Abe Lincoln: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time."
