“After all the wasteful spending Extremist Liam McLaughlin has incurred over his twenty years in City Hall, he now wants to DRAG Yonkers parents to court because they failed to pay for school lunches. Since 72% of the students qualify for free lunch paid by the State, the problem seems to be poor oversight, and understaffing by school officials that was allowed under his time in the Yonkers City Council.
“Extremist McLaughlin has once again demonstrated he is out of touch with Yonkers citizens and doesn’t understand that not all Yonkers parents can afford to send their children to private schools. Instead of wasting Yonkers taxpayer money on mean spirited lawsuits, the solution should include outreach to hard working Yonkers families.
“As a public school parent and taxpayer, the Office of City Council President needs real leadership with compassion. The citizens of Yonkers deserve better representation with empathy, not a politician that uses Trumpian threats of lawsuits and bully tactics.”
