"Once again, I have been called to News12 offices to address a press release I issued and, once again, it did not make it to the Yonkers Edition.
"This was an extremely important story and one which has been crying out for attention in a North Yonkers neighborhood which has been slowly dying.
"I understand that the mayor rules the roost in this city and it is truly a shame that something this important has been buried under a bushel.
"Unfortunately, the residents who called the meeting knew I was issuing a press release and knew I was being interviewed by News12 reporters. It is unfortunate that no coverage was provided.
"Several police representatives have seen my release on the Yonkers Tribune site, pretty much the only avenue of reportage in Yonkers, and have offered to assist me in this regard.
"News12 seems to think that having a weather report every other topic is more significant. I won't trouble you with future press releases."
