EXCLUSIVE: Everyone’s Getting Paid – It’ s a Done Deal By HEZI ARIS

Yonkers_Welcome to -SIGNYONKERS, NY — June 14, 2012 –It began like this. Yonkers City Council Majority Leader Wilson Terrero, as majority leader has purview over the Yonkers City Clerk’s budget. It was Yonkers CityCouncil President Chuck Lesnick  who signed off on the hiring of Erica DelBenne to the Yonkers City Clerk’s Office with the urging of Mr Terrero. Ms DelBenne is 2nd Deputy Clerk Vincent Spano’s girlfriend. Months later, it seems Mr Wilson, having learned José Alvarado’s recent patronage inspired hire at the Yonkers Office of Constituent Services, in deference to the Westchester County Democratic Majority was perceived to have soured by Mr Alvarado’s allegedly demeaning attitude toward women, his all too often perceived arriving at work with what has ben described as alcohol on his breath, and his tardy arrival and early departure from work, brought Mr Terrero to his defense and aid.

SPECIAL NOTE: The relationship between Ms DelBenne is contested by Vincent Spano to NOT be true. Either way, Mr Terrero exacted a price for her hire.

Majority Leader Terrero worked out a deal, if not at the behest of Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, certainly with his knowledge and acquiescence, in which Yonkers City Council Minority Leader John Larkin (R-6th District), Councilmen Dennis Shepherd (R-4th District), and Michael Breen (R-5th District) agreed to support Mr Alvarado’s name for Yonkers City Clerk. A resolution to that affect was submitted to the Yonkers City Clerk’s office this late afternoon. In exchange for supporting Mr Alvarado to the position of Yonkers City Clerk, Mssrs. Larkin and Breen demanded John Jacono, Yonkers Republican City Committee Chair, employed by lobbyist Nick Spano’s Empire Strategic Planning (ESP) operation, and licensed Real Estate Salesperson under Paul Adler, Senior Managing Director of Prudential Rand Commercial Services and understood to be a partner to Nick Spano in the real estate business, was demanded to fill the remaining term of Yonkers Board of Education (YBoE) Trustee Board Director Michael E. Carey who recently stepped down from his posting at the urging of the Spano Administration. The ramification of the Yonkers Republican City Committee Chair working for Democrat Mayor Mike Spano, serving lobbyist Nick Spano, a registered Republican still, is a conflict of interest specific to the Republican Party in Yonkers. Can Mr Jacono promote a credible Republican challenger to a Democrat endorsed candidate whose boss is the same one he has accepted a position and stipend from, that is,  Mayor Mike Spano, a registered Democrat? Is Mr Jacono planning to eventually step down as Chair of the Yonkers Republican City Committee? If not; he should do. The real purpose for Mr Jocono's appointment to the Yonkers BoE Board of Trustrees is for him to have a hand (control) in overseeing the $1.7 Billion Capital Improvement Budget yet to be fully explained by Yonkers Superintendent Bernard Pierorazio. Mr Pierorazio had advised a few weeks ago the YBoE were in the process of substantiating the numbers and the 15 year plan. Contracts galore should be anticipated for rudential Commercial Rand Services and Nick Spano's ESP.

Unrelated to al the above, Yonkers Tribune has learned Dr. Nader Sayegh, Esq., attorney at law, adjunct professor at a local college, School Superintendent at a private school, Principal at various Yonkers Public Schools, teacher, one-time chairman of the Yonkers Charter Revision Commission, Yonkers Parking Authority Board Treasurer, Yonkers General Hospital Board Treasurer, and so much more, is expected to accept a 5-year appointment when designated by Mayor Mike Spano next week.

Besides the resolution by the Yonkers City Council requesting Mr Alvarado be considered for the Yonkers City Clerk position is the ancillary aspect of the resolution that stipulated present 2nd Yonkers City Clerk Vincent Spano be move up to Yonkers City Deputy Clerk. Vincent Spano is a Conservative Party member.

A Republican position had been offered to Geri Esposito but was rebuffed by her lack of interest. John Rubbo has been offered the position of 2nd Yonkers City Clerk Deputy. Mr Rubbo is engaged in opening a micro-brewery in Yonkers. One must wonder where he will find the time to apply his efforts; his new business venture or the Office of the Yonkers City Clerk?

The non-aggression pact is thriving in Yonkers once again. Everyone is getting paid.

Best of all, when Mr Alvarado takes office as Yonkers City Clerk, an opening in Yonkers Office of Constituent Services will have earned Mayor Mike Spano to fill that position with another patronage job. Only “Friends and Family” may apply.

  1. This could all just be lies but then again if it is NOT, then that is just sad. Nick is a good man that will pay for his mistakes. I personally know some of the Spano’s not so much Vincent but from what I have seen of him, he has never had a problem in the women catagory! His childhood girlfriend was HOT, the girlfriend he had during the elections when his brother won mayor was smoking HOT and now this young HOT girl (which I hope for the spano’s case, is NOT another girlfriend of Vincents)! My point is that from what I have seen, Vincent doesn’t need eye candy, all this is just complete BS!

  2. The indisputable facts are that Nick Spano is a convicted felon who betrayed both the office that he held and the people he was elected to represent.

  3. He gets his sentence today, So how stupid are You. He will be put in jail on a later date. Loser you will have to wait a little longer to get excited about this. One would have to wonder how much of a loser you are. And his name isnt Mikey Its Mayor Spano so go phuck yourself you useless human being.

  4. Well it’s 12:01 on June 18th 2012 …… Guess who going to jail today!!!!!! That’s right Mikey your big fat brother Nick ….. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  5. Haters!!,!,!,! Hahahahahahahanahahanaha. Mike is mayor, and you can’t do anything to change it, and now pee wee Herman knows mike is taking his seat next!!!

  6. Spano is a FOOL and he will get caught with his back room deeds….just wait. How was that traffic camera contract worked out?
    He will feel the same disgrace of big fatty and FALL as well! The feds have nothing but time to wait…and wait…and wait

  7. To me you sound like sour grapes
    not having fat Nick around to toss
    his salad for the next 18 months or so.
    Plus fat boy will become someones wife
    in the pen and cheat on you.

  8. You know why Mayor mike wants a new City seal? He’s hoping someone will put his facial profile on one and claim IT the winner. Alvarado can’t even speak English. Thanks for making this a one political party city John.
    Welcome to Spanoville.

  9. Noone should state their name here..just like the scared BS spanos who are scumbags when they do all their behind scenes stuff

  10. You are dcelusional..the spanos are wanna be nobodys mike is dumb as a stump and nick is going to jail and will be molested hopefully..if anyone like a fat old italian guy

  11. Well you do know Nick has a huge family that lives in Yonkers Right near you.. I ask you what did he do to you? You cant escape a Spano anywhere you go in yonkers they are like roaches there imediadte family is about 100 Sorry you are such a hater probaly with no good reason So put that sprinkler where the sun does not shine LOSER

  12. To Sam Rothstein, dont be concerned, your mother already called and offered to stand in for him. She was very excited I hear shes a pro.

  13. S ucessful
    P erfect
    Amazing
    N o Nonsense
    O rganized
    ANd that is why all you Losers talk about a Succesful Family What would you people do if we werent around to fill the voids in your boring lives

  14. Dear Einstein: The library didn’t get more money, we still have our worst budget in ten years and our workforce is down 25% since then. No other agency is facing that problem.

  15. You can bet your bottom dollar there is more involvement with Ridge Hill then is being said,one day we will find out and hopefully these dirty politicians will get caught.

  16. What bullshit are you sprewing-Spano was required as part of his plea deal to admit that he did what the complaint alleges-you make it seem like he fessed-up because he because his conscience was bothering him-he used his public office to peddle influence-he deserves the full 18 months with no breaks-hopefully he will have learned his lessom & move on but not until serves the 18 months.

  17. So the mayor wanted givebacks from police,fire,and DPW I guess the union membership turned him down. No contracts for the past 3-5 years with no sign of negotiations in the near future, no money for raises either even though employees costs rise too. Yet the city finds a way to give more money to the library when a majority of households have smartphones/computers for book access or research. Gives more money to the school district which will only waste it, continues to hire for patronage jobs. f I were a union member in that city, I would be pushing my union to file for arbitration. You really cant get worse than what you have now.

  18. Can someone explain how the democractic mayor (defacto party leader )appoints the republican party chair to the school board ?

  19. The enlightened mayor’s office sent out 6 pink slips to the YPD. Looks like baby Mikey didn’t get his way again. So far 30 fireman and 6 cops, typical Yonkers non sense. Hurt the cops and fireman who work for you. I guess our public safety comes after libraries, welfare, and developer give backs. Way to motivate your employees! Where are u city council ? You’re the ones who approved this fiasco ???…

  20. The people that are taking such joy at Nick Spano looking at possible prison time must have lives that are absolutely meaningless. I would love to see you little people if he gotno time. You would not be able to live. Little men.

  21. It’s called SCHADENFREUDE. The german word for gaining pleasure at another’s misfortune. Hate has a tendency to infect people. Especially when they can remain anonymous. Jeff Meyer Tuckahoe, NY

  22. I dont know why people are asking the Federal judge to go easy on Nick, this case is more than just making a mistake on your taxes, or even willingly neglecting to report all your income. He willfully and knowingly took advisor money from the insurance company, and knowingly set up a phony company to receive these payments. If these payments were all legitimate, then why didnt they come to him or his lobbying company? The Feds were more than right to go after him, I just wonder how much more was never found out by the Feds.

  23. Noo way is that girl dating Vinny SpanoN you even seen her?? She’s. Out of his league. Maybe he hired her for eye candy.

  24. So how come you just write an article about this girl and vinny without any facts? Where did this info come from? What if it isn’t true, how do you think it affects the people involved with current relationships.

  25. the actions by terrero clearly show his abuse of public office – people like mike spano , wilson terreo and jose alvarado is what is WRONG with politics..

  26. I believe we all no that. The point is less attention is brought to people that murder rape and molest. He knows exactly what he did and he owed up to it. Yes he is a felon but he is a man that admitted that he did wrong and faced everybody. There are no photos of him running from the press. He stood up and took his lumps. If you watch others they just run from ceras and don’t even apologize . No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. Nick Spano is a real man no matter what is said on this site.

  27. Really. It’s all good buddy stop having so much hate in your heart. I am sure you are a political operative that the Spano family crushed so sad. And remember to love one another and to not hate.

  28. Hey guys, on second thought the wikipedia page only has a brief sentece about Nick’s conviction. That’s not good enough
    I say we take a page out of what people did to Vinny Leibell’s wikipedia page and dedicate a whole section to the indictment and conviction. The best part is they can’t do anything about it because it’s all TRUE.
    Let’s get to work!

  29. So the journal news has a story up that fat ass Nicky’s lawyers are saying he shouldn’t go to jail because he paid all his back taxes. That’s a funny thought, even though his plea agreement required him to pay all those back taxes.
    So let’s see, Your Honor I did something that I was required to do by the government by paying back money that wasn’t really mine anyway which I only acquired by committing a felony. Please look upon me with favor since I’m such a good person. After all I said I was sorry!
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    I’m calling 18 months. What time does the last supper at Giulio’s start on Sunday? Maybe Nicky will eat enough to have a fake heart attack so the judge will feel bad for him and go easy on him? Doesn’t seem too farfetched with all the desperate tactics his lawyers have tried so far.
    Enjoy those stripes prison boy, they may make you look slightly less obese!
    PS – I really like how someone already made sure Fat Boy’s wikipedia page (like he even should have one because he’s a real celebrity!) to reflect the fact that he is now a CONVICTED FELON. I’m sure that wasn’t done by the Spano camp

  30. Wow people ars so mean. What did nick ever do to anybody. Jealousy isn’t a reason to hate. He always helped people. And the people in the political ge don’t count because he has been on the receiving end many times. As for jail he knows he did wrong and will do his time. Life. Goes on and everything happens for a reason, remember karma is a bitch

  31. I dont know how you could be sitting there with that smile on your face. Just because Nickys going to the big house doesnt mean its over yet. There are so many aesholes like Nick in public office sitting in their air cooled offices dreaming up ways to screw you and me and the rest of the taxpayers out of the hard earned money we got to be able to sit and enjoy that cup of coffee on your porch. The Feds need a branch office in Yonkers.
