My name is Michael Francis Meyer. I am the Republican candidate running for the 3rd District Council seat in the City of Yonkers. I care about the city where I was raised and where I am raising my own children. Over the last eight years I have seen the quality of life deteriorate, property taxes skyrocket to fund wasteful spending, crime increase and bogus tax revenue schemes like the red light cameras that let us know that Big Brother is watching us and not the criminals. Our schools are continuing to fail even though the budget is over $19,000.00 per student; just throwing money at the problem is obviously not working. We need to hold Administrators accountable for the failure. IT’S OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM –OUR CHILDREN!
Yonkers needs leaders who will lead by example – leaders who will make tough decisions for the benefit of the taxpayers and residents of the 3rd District and the City of Yonkers. We can no longer have career politicians who only look out for special interest groups.
TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE SACRED AND MUST BE TREATED AS SUCH. Elected officials have been entrusted with the ability to tax and spend and they must never waste a nickel of our money. We need real government transparency; I’d like to see the city checkbooks posted on line so that the public can see where their money is going. There should be no take home cars, no free gas, and no free cell phones. Government workers should be at their jobs when they are being paid to be there. I want to be an independent voice for the residents of the 3rd District.
Please vote for me, Michael F. Meyer on Tuesday, November 8th 3rd District Council on Row 5B.
