"How dare Noam Bramson suggest that his dispute with
the African-American community in New Rochelle comes from the Astorino
campaign. Mr. Bramson has had trouble with the New Rochelle African-American
community for years: witness his expulsion of New Rochelle NAACP President Ron
Williams from a New Rochelle park recently.
"The Astorino campaign's focus has been and will
continue to be on Mr. Bramson's deplorable tax record — he raised property
taxes 109% — and his self dealing with taxpayer money, which includes raising
his own salary 40% and taking healthcare for life after just five years as
a part time mayor.
"Noam Bramson's disputes in New Rochelle are of his own
doing. Leave us out of it." — Jessica Proud, spokeswoman, Friends of
County Executive Rob Astorino.
