YONKERS, NY — "The recent hiring of long-time conservative activist Gail Burns as a County Board of Legislators administrative aide and the expectation that this will lead to write-in votes on the Conservative line for Mike Spano as Mayor of Yonkers is one more example of the backroom politics that has hindered progress in the city," said Democratic Mayoral candidate Bob Flower today.
“It’s a commitment to the same-old, same-old politics that keeps those responsible for Yonkers’ problems in positions of executive and legislative responsibility,” Flower declared. “How can residents of Yonkers break free of this bondage if the same people who brought the city to its current state of disrepute continue to shape its future.
"The lifelong resident of Yonkers is basing his campaign on an “after all the politicians, it’s time for competence” theme and is calling for someone with executive, rather than legislative, experience to head City Hall.
“The city needs new ideas and executive skills, not the failed policies and leadership of the past,” concluded Bob Flower.
