The Democrats smell blood in the water and they are excellent at closing.  Now more than ever, the bold leadership of President Trump is needed, but an adjustment to his style may very well be required.  While I am not so arrogant to presume to give the President of the United States advice, my own observations of the current situation, …

The atrocity of the Trump presidency only grew in public awareness as he completed his so-called Presidential Honeymoon of his First 100 Days.  The truly painful embarrassment and lasting stain on the worldwide leadership of our Great Democracy may last as long as humans survive on this handsome earthly satellite. As some readers may know, I had a series of …

Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino’s Message of Having Not Raising Taxes Questions the Method
By BETTINA MAYER

Hezi Aris Archives, Community, Finance, Governance, History, Letter to the Editor, Op-Ed, People, Westchester County, NY 2 Comments

Two term County Executive Rob Astorino’s big message is that he has not raised taxes in Westchester County. But what is questionable about this message is the method.
