  1. whatajoke

    Pretty sad that you don’t even need a high school diploma to move up in the political ranks of your family in Yonkers. This family is pretty disgusting with how they try to take over the entire city and beyond. This guy is a nitwit, who only got where he is do to family connections!

  2. sad

    Someone looking at Yonkers years from now will be amazed at how stupid and naïve we were. Imagine; turning our beloved city over to a family of thieve and connivers. Haven’t we heard enough about the family, friends and gommadas network, that we don’t recognized the appearance of impropriety in having the mayors brother serving as City Clerk? Are we to actually believe that Mikey the magnificent had nothing to do with this? You’re kidding right? Hey, anybody smell something burning?

  3. LIONS AND TIGERS AND MAYORS, OH MY

    This is not a administration appointment..it is a city council apt. with no input from the mayor. Vinny served in the city clerk’s office almost a decade before his brother was elected mayor. I guess you think this apt. is worse than the former mayor whose girlfriend had two of his children while serving as Chief of Staff in his administration. No conflict there, right?
    Enough with the GED and education references. I know college grads who can’t even put a sentence together. Anyone who arbitrarily equates higher education with intelligence needs has problem that school can’t fix.

  4. What the

    The demise of the Democratic Party. They can’t elect a County Executive, will probably change the leadership of the Legislature and they cannot get a job – Mike Spano, democrat-bull shit.
    STEP DOWN Symra and Reggie, you are destroying the Party.

  5. Whale

    Is this the first Yonkers appointment during the Administration? Just the appearance of a Spano appointed in a Spano administration should make you wonder what else is happening with OUR tax money! Tammany Hall or No Hall At All! Spanos for one and all for Spanos.
    Are we f—— crazy? Why don’t we just change the name of Yonkers now – “Spanoville” we only hire friends,family and “squeezes”.
    There should be a rule, “if you’re married, your girlfriend has to be cuter that your wife”.
    I hope to heaven there is a hell.
