Murtagh_John Yonkers, NY, March 2, 2011 — Yonkers City Council Minority Leader John Murtagh (R), is promoting a “beer, Burgers and Budget" dinner this Friday, March 4th. The catalyst behind this last minute event is in response to what Mr Murtagh claims was his being abrasively disinvited  from attending a Police Benevolent Association sponsored dinner scheduled that same evening. Mr Murtagh suggests he was disinvited after he sponsored a resolution promoting public employee union reforms, including over-time pension abuse, and changing the last-in-first-out policy that threatens thousands of teachers in New York State. In juxtaposition to the inference formulated by Mr Murtagh, Yonkers PBA President Keith Olson there is no room for pretense with Mr Murtagh because Mr Murtagh’s demeanor is closed to broaching all the issues, all the concerns, and the requisite and possible solutions.

The informal  “beer, burgers and budget” dinner to discuss cutting spending and taxes at the Heritage this Friday, March 4th, at 7:00 p.m., is located at 960 McLean Avenue, in Yonkers, NY.  (cash bar; burgers are on Murtagh.)

  1. You are an idiot. Where do you get your information that people only get OT in their last year? If you had half a brain and could do a little arithmetic, if your hypothesis was right, retirees pensions would be closer to $400,00. You are truly a fool if someone is giving you that information. About 25 to 30 guys retire each year. The PD spent about 12 million in OT divide that 12 million by 30, add base and everything else and you’ll see what an idiot you are. What did a cop do to you to cause such a hatred? And it’s not about the pension.

  2. The more Moose talks, the more apparent are his contradictions and hypocrisy. He thinks that people can’t remember what happened 6 months ago.
    He is so bad that posters from left, right and middle are shooting him down.
    No credibility Moose. None at all.

  3. “The younger guys give up overtime so the retiring guys can get it and there is no supervision
    to insure that pensions are under control”.
    That is not the Police or Fire Supervisors Job. That is the Police Commissioner and Fire Commissioners job( who are both appointed by the Mayor and approved by the council).The Supervisors jobs is to make sure crime and fires are under control. That is why you don’t get it and never will.

  4. “they were the only ones at the table when
    they were negotiated..the taxpaeyers were in the dark”
    “the politicians wanted the union support and soldthe taxpayers out.”
    So in other words the politicians that were elected by the taxpayers were only looking after themselves or at the time they were doing the right thing for everyone involved. Which one is it. Can the unions really be held to blame for trying to get the most for their members? Maybe if politicians as you say gave away the store maybe all their property should be forfeit and given back to the taxpayers. Almost every elected official in Yonkers approved all those contracts so if we take all their property we can reimburse the city millions of dollars.

  5. You have a very lengthy post here but there is only one important line – the sellout out of the taxpayer by anyone in office who voted for these contracts to engender union support.
    If YOU yourself are not a total hypocrite, you would have no choice but to outright state that none of those councilpeople who voted for contracts which ultimately lead to Yonkers’ dire financial situation should EVER be elected again to ANY public office. That probably means both Lesnick and Murtagh, since they are the only two remaining councilpeople who voted on the contracts and are seeking higher office. Although, Chuck is not the sanctimonious prig personified in John Murtagh – he is acting like he was never a part ofthe process.
    But, I would not be surprised if you equate this egregious act, too, as merely being a “gaffe”. Or, in this case, your original misspelling of the word – “gaff” is more appropriate – definition: a sharp metal spike or spur – which is exactly what the taxpayer ended up dangling from with these two.

  6. its long past time…the public union leaders make
    the argument that they “earned” their bloated pensions
    not true…they were the only ones at the table when
    they were negotiated..the taxpaeyers were in the dark
    the politicians wanted the union support and they
    sold the taxpayers out by allowing them to game the system…the fact that the pension fund may be funded
    now is no indication of what the facts will be in
    a few short years…with over 150 retirees in yonkers
    making in excess of 100,000 a year ..for the rest
    of their lives..this number will only exponentially
    increase..promisess were made at gun point that are
    simply aginst public policy..no contribution to their
    own pensions like the rest of the world..no contribution toward their health plans..just a grab
    at taxpayer dollars which they have managed to
    attempt to justify by arguing its part of their contracts..yes it is…but the mere fact that any
    public official could have possibly agreed to allow
    overtime accumulated in one year of work to determine
    the amount of a pension for the next 30-40 years
    is criminal..and the fact that yonkers pays extra to
    the state to allow it to happen is also criminal..
    and to argue that overtime is given out to others not
    retiring is a ruse..plain and simple ..I know and you
    know how the game works..overtime is given out primarily to those who can use it for their final
    pensions..the younger guys give up overtime so the retiring guys can get it and there is no supervision
    to insure that pensions are under control…public
    workers whose highest year ever was 85,000 get almost
    double in some cases in retirement..to earn 150,000
    a year at 4% interest you would need millions of dollars..Unfortunately the remedy is either massive
    layoffs or the equivalency of state bankruptcies..
    in the former situation the public and the employees
    pay a huge price in lost jobs..the union leaders if
    they allow it to happen are not representing their
    members..if the equivalency of a bankruptcy occurs
    the contracts will be open…and again the union
    leaders will have done a great disservice..all that
    is necessary is that everyone recognize that the present situaiton is unsustainable…then reconfigure
    the arrangements to fit into what the states and
    the cities can afford..your choice

  9. Oh! the public get it alright, it the unions who don’t. Mouse is right, it’s the politicians who created this mess, as long as they were getting reelected. Circumstances have changed. Yonkers is broke, always is year in year out. NY State is Broke also. You’ll have to do more with less.
    The idea that one can just work around the clock and feather bed ones pension, is an outrageous notion. I know there are those who are jealous, but more would not begrudge anyone a pension, but being fair, retiring after 20 years on $125k pension, is just nor right. Furthermore this alone will help kill NY state for good. 2 million left the state in 10 years, if this continues there will be no businesses left, and nobody to pay taxes that fund these bloated bennies. It’s time to move forward and change to fix the problem.

  10. who voted against the tax increase? and are they
    running for mayor? I am not ignoring it, but it
    is symptomatic of what happened all over the nation
    all public officials ignored it because it was in
    their interest to ignore it as long as they got
    re elected

  13. “as long as revenues were being generated”???? do you LIVE in Yonkers??? Have you been following our severe budget problems low these many years?? You have GOT to be kidding me…..
    Murtagh voted for a 14.97% tax increase (not the only one)…are you really telling me that we were flush in that year with the revenues just rolling in…..HE IGNORED IT…FACE IT AND STOP CARRYING HIS DIRY WATER

  14. no one challengd it as i recall..pensions were not
    discussed and pension abuses were certainly not
    discussed by any public official anywhere from either
    party…that’s because as long as revenues were being
    generated no one cared..however if you check the
    record there is one person that spoke out against
    pension padding well over 2 years ago…(not murtaugh)

  17. please stop avoiding the question. Where was Mr. Murtagh on this and the other issues he is now focusing on, during the past seven years? The final year pension change was done in 1999 and cost the city $20M over the next ten years. He could have, at any time, challenge and attempt to change that system, but he did not do it, as is his way. He only acts when he is campaigning. That is why people despise him. He is a fraud.

  18. Hey, anybody get a “HEAD” count at Murtgah’s “I’ll buy you a burger if you’ll be my friend” event last night?
    Burger, beers and big headed bastards! LOL

  19. your overtime analysis is really dumb..and i will
    tell you exactly why…there is no problem with overtime when it is needed …but overtime cannot
    only be given to those in their last year of work for
    the sole purpose of enhancing their pensions..overtime
    and pensions are two separate issues…when firefighters and or police are needed and overtime has
    to be paid that’s the way it goes…that is a totally
    separate issue from an organized effort to steer overtime primarily to those who can use it to boost
    their pensions..you guys have been trying to sell this
    conflation for a long time..taxpayers understand the
    difference…it is not a coincidence that over 150
    retirees are earning over 100,000 dollars a year in
    pensions..this is not only a problem in new york but
    all over the country…and has nothing whatever to do
    with any “vampire” allusions you make all of which
    are creations of someone’s imagination

  20. well, can one of your murtagh groupies fill us in on just hot successful a soiree the event at the Heritage turned out to be? Oddly enough, we haven’t heard from a one of you so I am assuming that one pound of 80% ground beef was sufficient to feed the “crowd”.

  21. Hey Murtaugh and Moose, are you two idiots going to bitch about how much overtime the rescue workers made yesterday? Especially if they were in the last year of their service? How about a press release for that Johnny boy? You are a disgrace, you have the balls to call yourself a public servant. You couldn’t walk two seconds in those rescue workers shoes. And stop using your deceased grandfather as an excuse to show your “support” for the real public servants. Nobody believes your bullshit. Now go away and keep on telling yourself that you actually reside in Bronxville. And Moose, stop trying to seek revenge on the Police for the incident with the Vampire years ago, good luck to him and I hope he becomes everything you are not.

  22. Murtaugh could rock the boat simply by looking to the left or the right with that giant noggin! He bears a striking resemblence to Sam The Eagle…..some say …….mana mana

  23. excuse me but, as usual, murtagh has taken a molehill and turned it into a mountain..he milked more publicity out of this than he has ever gotten for anything of note or substance he has done for the city. HE is the crybaby..anyone else would not even have considered this incident anything but something to chuckle about. Not crybaby John…it was yet another incident that he went crying to momma about. Just like when the firefighter yelled at him last year.
    Got news for you….he was a guest of the police at this event and they can disinvite anyone they want. It was a free ticket. What’s interesting is that when the PBA was a little tight with funds several years ago, and the city council had to pay, Murtagh was a no show. He is so low class. And, a supreme hyocrite to boot.
    Why’d you vote on these contracts John and them blast the union members? Why didn’t you challenge the final year OT deal all these years John? Didn’t want to rock the boat then John?

  24. Hey moose, I said it once I will say it
    again, YOU AND MURTAGH SHOULD
    HAVE STUDIED HARDER FOR THE POLICE
    ENTRANCE EXAM! Like this there would be
    no need for jealousy.

  25. actually it was quite juvenile for the police
    to disinvite an elected official because of his
    position on pension reform…it reminded of 7 year
    olds who tell their moms that the next door kid
    with whom they had a falling out can’t come to
    the birthday party..surely the police union is mature
    enough to take criticism and engage a public official
    in conversation at their own dinner…its this attitude
    of taking your marbles and going home without discussing the merits that is pissing taxpayers off

  28. John Murtagh.
    The Judge Smails of Yonkers politics.
    “Its easy to grin when your ship comes in
    and you’ve got the stock market beat
    but the man worthwhile is the man who can smile
    when his shorts are too tight in the seat.”
    Blah, blah, blah,
    pensions,
    blah, blah, blah,
    wish I could find a hat to fit my head.

  29. hey Joanne..
    you’re responding right now actually, maybe you didn’t realize it. But, not with any validation of Murtagh’s actual positive acts.

  30. Joanne,
    I don’t know to whom you have addressed your comments, Joanne, but I don’t see any rantings or ravings in the most recent retorts to “gus’s” raptured postings about Murtagh. He was merely challenged, twice, to actually show us what Murtagh has done to earn this praise, and answer to the hypocritical attacks now emanating from Mr. Murtagh, over situations he has helped create via his city council votes. Is this what you refer to as “raving”. It seems like Murtagh’s followers are more like brainwashed cult members rather than individuals who can respond to valid challenges. Go away, Joanne.

  31. I applaud the PBA for not having this hack come to their dinner. Why would you want someone there who slags you constantly but will be there and be all fake smiles ?
    Murtaugh is like a little kid .. ” If you won’t let me come to your party I will make my own party.”
    Good job big head have it at a huge coke bar.. are half the profits going to the IRA ???? Why do you think they have that back room there murtaugh ? It’s not for girl scout meetings… but hey go ahead and have your beer and burger thing there..
    Beer and burgers… what other ideas are you gonna steal from obama…

  32. Why would ANYONE feel the need to respond to your rants and raves? Your insulting tone is matched only by your blind hatred.
    John Murtagh’s independence and integrity are obvious.
    And the political/personal axe you keep grinding is obvious, too.

  33. wow…strike two, gus…still no line-item validation of hoppin-john murtagh’s track record.
    If you were a defense attorney your client would most definitely be convicted.
    I just hope we can all get away with time-served and can await the final political days of this pompous ass.

  34. Joan G garnered praise and support from concerned citizens despite their political leanings.
    John Murtagh garnered the same bi-partisan support at first. He changed. Look at his support group now. Do you want Amicone and Regan to still have influence in Yonkers.
    That is why this “motley bunch” is of the same mind.

  35. once again, a totally vacuous statement. You have an inbred lack of reading comprehension.
    You have no shame or embarrassment in yet another sidestep of telling us all, who are waiting with baited breath, just why Mr. Murtagh is such a catch. Please do.

  36. Murtagh must be a cross between George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln to have such a motley bunch of political hacks nipping at his heels.

  37. you disengenuous fool…
    I love it when people like you continually totally ignore valid criticisms of people like Murtagh, thinking just a vacuous sentence like yours covers everything.
    We are judged by our actions, not words, and Mr. Murtagh’s eleventh hour words, i.e. his most recent legislative suggestions, could have been addressed during his seven years on the city council. But they weren’t, were they Guy?
    Maybe you would like to expound on just what Mr. Murtagh has done in his seven years on the city council to make him such a principled man. Maybe you want to cite his 14.97% tax increase as a Highlight? Or his seven year failure to criticize the final year pension change? Or his voting for the contracts he now blasts? Oh, maybe you want to beatify him for his reincarnated ethics board? Hope not – they are a joke just as the new IG is a joke.
    By the way, I hear that the PBA president beat Murtagh down WITH THE FACTS on the Phil Reisman show today.
    I will tell you what Mr. Murtagh seems to be most talented at, and that is his continued running from the political playground, crying and moaning about every little slight or attack on him which usually results from his own hyopcritical actions. Don’t ever walk down a dark alley with him, Guy. Wouldn’t want this milquetoast watching MY back.

  38. I love when these hacks attack Murtagh. He’s got more principle in his little finger than you mooks have in your entire family.

  39. Ms. Gronowski has done her civic duty and done it well. Unlike Messrs. Lesnick & Murtagh, she is not looking to feed at the public trough for the rest of her days. She has been an exceptional public servant.

  40. There was a time when Murtagh had integrity.
    But he sees the fastest way to advance is to cozy up to the GOP regulars. So he is now in bed with Amicone, Regan et al. He hasn’t said one word about Schorr getting paid to do nothing but kiss up to Amicone. He has embraced Astorino who has become one-man patronage mill.
    What a waste.

  41. Peter Klein: you’ve existed on the DWBID board illegality for a few years.
    as i recall you were “dismissed” and “conveniently reappointed”…..as the rep for Greyston.
    I also recal
    Which properties are included…..
    there has never been an answer provided to this question.
    it appears the BID Board you preside over my be in front of the AG.
    Ball in court Peter

  42. “You can say whatever you want about Murtaugh but he is taking on the abusive
    union practices head on..is anyone else doing that..”
    Not Phil!

  43. The only way that scrawny little neck is able to withstand the incredible weight of that magnificent head is that it is completely empty. It’s the only way!

  44. 1. THE HERITAGE???? That is the biggest coke bar on Mclean Ave.
    2. Murtaugh will have the biggest head on Mclean Ave. (not a small task)
    3. @Anon 6:06pm… Anon, very well played ” he is taking on the abusive union practices head on” Always good to see a fresh “Murtaugh head” joke.
    4. Let’s hope there’s not a Mexican Birthday Party at Rory Dolans, as the party goers might mistake Murtaugh’s ginormous noggin for a pinata!
    5. Maybe after 15 beers, Murtaugh could come up with a good idea, trying to do so while sober clearly is not working for him

  45. Murtagh should more aptly be serving ham at this pity party. If he’s paying for the burgers, don’t count on any lean beef.

  46. hey anna, please invoke the name of joan and chuck in the same breath, for one thing. Moreover, Joan not running for anything…she is a rare politician who packed it in rather than serve with the hypocrites in Yonkers government. What don’t you get. She could have sat on her butt and not done anything but she still is trying to the end of her term – with nothing ever gained. why don’t you ask her colleagues how they have networked their way on the council to law work and other “perks”. All she got was s..t on. You don’t have a clue.

  47. You have to look at the big picture. They (Politicians)are trying to take away collective bargaining and break the unions. Look at Wisconsin. The Communist regime denied its workers the right to form labor unions or bargain collectively in both the public and private sectors, claiming that since Communism was Government”of the people” there was no need for unions in there system.They want to decide what we should get paid and whether we should be entitled to raises or cost of living stipends. What they want is Government controlled labor. Mmmmmm…. sounds like democracy is going to be taking a second seat to “Communism”. Look at the big picture and wake up. Slowly but surely.Next they are going to start building a “big wall”. Murtagh is pissed cause he lost out on a free meal.

  48. When Lesnick or Gronowski does it, you call it statesmanship.
    When Murtagh does it, you call it political grand standing.
    I like Murtagh more very day.

  49. It should be called Kool Aid, Burgers and Budget because this phony has been drinking the Amicone Kool Aid for the past seven yrs. If you have watched any of the budget meetings in the past, the man leaves early that is if he bothers to show up at all. He knows that he is going to rubber stamp the mayor’s budget.

  50. oh please 6:06 anon…your statements must be tongue-in-cheek, right?? Murtagh is doing now, when he is running for mayor, what he had the option, choice, power and responsibility to do during his previous 7 years on the council. What bravery??? He is campaigning, with nothing to lose, that’s why he is doing it now. Again, try and retain this information if you are able. Murtagh voted on contracts which he now criticizes. What don’t you understand? The final year pension payout existed since 1999. Murtagh was elected in 2003. Where was Mr. Murtagh on this issue in 2004, 2005, 2006 (oops he was busy voting for a 15% property tax increase), 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. NOW he’s ready to take on the unions?
    Further, that’s another great statement of yours..”murtagh may have his detractors”. Yes, he has them – for good reasons. Where there’s smoke there’s fire.
    My generation would call murtagh a candy-ass and his press release centered around an event commemorating his being un-invited to a union dinner speaks volume to that description.
    He should be ashamed.

  51. Smart move by Murtagh. Especially for those Republicans who actually come out to vote in primary elections. Martinelli and Regan will be big losers if they try to fight him for the GOP nod.

  52. You can say whatever you want about Murtaugh but he is taking on the abusive
    union practices head on..is anyone else doing that..and the stupid union leaders, rather
    then engage him in a conversation disinvested him to a stupid dinner…that should
    tell you a lot about the ability of the unions to recognize the financial issue facing the city..they have blindfolds on…..Murtaugh may have his detractors but the real Question is where do the people of the city stand on the pension abuse practices that have resulted in over 150 retirees receiving over 100,000 a year for the rest of their lives compliments of the city and the taxpayers..seems to me that Murtaugh may be a winner

  53. is there any end to this fraud’s making himself the poor victim….the highlight of his senate campaign was the “bombing” of his childhood home with not much emphasis on substantive, topical issues. Now, dear john was insulted by the cops by this rescinded invitation. Can you tell me what I have to do to insult him enough so he will stay away from the city council meetings?
    I think a more apt catchphrase for his little impromptu get-together would be SUDS, SPUDS AND DUDS…

  54. Murtagh is a jerk. He couldn’t get relected to his current seat on the City Council, never mind being elected Mayor. I only hope that the Republicans are stupid enought to actually make this guys their candidate. Talk about an easy win for whichever Democrat comes out on top of that party’s convention. Can’t wait to see all of these Republicans thrown out of City Hall by their shirt collars.
