  1. I have watched Barry McGoey represent the Yonkers Firemen for about 10 years now and I can honestly say as a life long Yonkers resident that I have never seen such a smart and articulate and knowledgeable union leader anywhere. The firemen are lucky to have such a great leader and should make sure he knows just how much he is appreciated by all. Merry Christmas and Happy Nee Year to all of our Firemen especially Barry.

  2. Good for you Barry!

    Meanwhile, all of your disabled FF’s are still in Political/Legal limbo waiting on the RETURN of their CONFISCATED retirement monies the COY was (and still is) CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED TO PAY!

    What right does Spano have to take money away without the order of the court to do so in the first place?

    Spano: “We do not agree with the wording in your contract, therefore, we will reduce your 207-a supplement by roughly 50%.”

    I Pray that you active members of 628 (and every department for that matter) never get crippled on the job!

    I pray that you never have to deal with all this legal and political BS that we, your disabled brothers, are currently dealing with and paying for.

    I pray you never have to experience what we are currently going through.

    I pray that I can make it through Christmas for my family one last time.

    Such a shame.

  3. Having Barry advising and consulting with CSEA is very much appreciated and respected. The firemen and all of the unions in Yonkers are very lucky to have someone with Barry’s knowledge experience and courage.

  4. The firefighters of Local 628 and their families are lucky to have Barry at the helm for at least another 3 years. Thank you Barry

  5. After battling Barry and Local 628 for over 6 years Spano is hated and Barry is loved. Barry probably is only staying on so he can stand on the steps of city hall on 12/31/19 and flip the Spano’s the bird as they exit the 2nd floor.

  6. Don’t pay attention to the Spano naysayers with their stupidity and ignorance. Its obvious they are just trying to downplay the significance that you are beloved by the majority of the members of Local 628 as well as many of the members of the other city unions. I for one am very thankful that you agreed with the many of us that pleaded with you to stay on for another term. We all know you could make a lot more money and have less headaches and problems if you weren’t the president. I and many many others appreciate the sacrifices you have and are making for us. Thank you SIR

  7. Barry made a mistake by thinking he could dump all resources into his sisters failed attempt at public office while giving little to no support to khader. We know the truth Barry.

    1. Don’t worry Spano lackey you will get another one and many more. Maeve Scotts and Tony Paganos campaigns were wins in many ways probably the most important way is that Nick Spano can no longer control who runs for office in Yonkers anymore. Wait for 2019 and see who is running for the 3 council seats and mayor and county legislature. No more uncontested races or sacrificial lamb candidates. And dopey Mike will soon see just how far out into the region Labor including 628’s influence runs. Merry Christmas

  8. Barry McGoey is the greatest union leader in the State of New York and is loved by his members and as well as the members of many other unions in Yonkers and throughout the region. Congratulations Barry. And maybe more importantly THANK YOU BARRY

  9. Great to see Barry back for another 3 years.Leadership is so important for a strong union. 100% backing from the membership. This is why 628 is the strongest union in the YO.Stayng focused, staying together and most important staying safe .
