The YONY/Rivertowns Creative Meetup is a seemingly positive gathering of corporate representatives and individuals “dedicated to accelerating an emerging creative and tech business corridor along the Hudson River in Westchester County that is transforming our former industrial waterfronts and downtowns into economic generators once again.” It is only when YONY attests: “Our mission is to inspire with the insight of creative leaders, to establish connections with people and resources to help our members flourish, and to promote the clustering of tech and other creative industries in Downtown Yonkers and communities along the Hudson,” that issues arise. Laudable as the mission statement sounds, is it not anathema to the “family values” espoused by Mayor Mike Spano who admitted to having been violated by a pedophile years ago. Were he to know of a pedophile within his midst, would he still permit his ethical standards to erode? A well-known pedophile has been welcomed into YONY’s fold while Yonkers City Hall asserts ignorance despite being advised days ago. Mayor Mike Spano’s Administration were made aware of James F. Surdoval’s involvement with YONY as a consultant to the operations. Why is Mayor Mike Spano willing to align the December 12, 2013 Meetup by presenting it, thereby validating its operation, in tandem with the YONY Initiative, Inc., and Sarah Lawrence College?

The Yonkers City Council’s slated agenda for December 10, 2013, is filled with many concerns. One of the issues is “ITEM 2. Local Law – Authorizing the sale of 70 Jackson St. (P.S. 19)”. This issue places Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano for political currency very quietly supporting the efforts of the unfunded Community Governance & Development Council (CGDC) while hiding behind the Yonkers City Council membership expected to support Alma Realty Corp. Those expected to support Alma Realty Corp. are Yonkers City Council Minority Leader John Larkin (6th District), and Councilmembers Dennis Shepherd (4th District) and Michael Breen (5th District). Even so, there is opposition; how solid the opposition is on the Yonkers City Council is uncertain. And principle must be understood, specifically to the role of the Yonkers City Council with respect to its conduct vis-à-vis economic development projects that come before them.
