WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — White Plains CitizeNetReporter Publisher / Editor John Bailey opens the Monday, October 1, 2018, 2018th broadcast with respect to issues impacting the City of White Plains and Westchester County government. 1) The strike contemplated by SEIU 32BJ against the Building & Realty Institute across Westchester and Rockland Counties was averted with agreement over terms that is expected to be ratified by the union membership this coming week. The package agreed to reveals an increase over 4 years at 11percent, a continuation of the current health plan, pension contributions, among other benefits, and no arbitrary staff cuts. We learn how the the two interests came to a respectful and respectable agreement. Is this a template for union labor? Strike Averted as Tentative Contract Agreement Reached for Residential Building Workers in the Hudson Valley. The agreement averts a strike that could have taken place as early as October 1st; 2)

The Gedney Association has lodged an appeal to the New York State Appellate Court over the August ruling by Judge Joan Lefkowitz decision that denied neighbors of the former Ridgeway Country Club from halting  the French American School of New York from moving ahead with their planned buildout. The appeal filed last Wednesday, permits the plaintiffs six months to perfect their appeal and thereby potentially delaying the FASNY project into next year, if at all.; 3) The New York State Education Department on Wednesday released the results of the 2018 Grades 3-8 English language arts (ELA) and mathematics test scores, yet the results cannot be compared with prior-year results because of changes to the tests which begs the question what the scores mean this year. And whether the new baseline established this year will enable comparisons with student scores in 2019 and 2020. This segment from 10-10:30am.

Political Analyst Michael Edelman, Esq. immerses us over issues of national and international importance that revolve around and about President Donald Trump. 1) Do Republicans press forward with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, risking alienating female voters for years — and before for this year’s midterms elections?; 2) Does the Anita Hill v Clarence Thomas remake 27 years later with respect to the Ford v Kavanaugh allegations give Democrats a winning edge in the mid-terms?; 3) Was the hearing and subsequent FBI Investigation delay an audacious partisan assault of President Trump by the Democrats?; 4) Are GOPers concerned about Kavanaugh’s credibility?; 5) Was the Ford / Kavanaugh Pres. Trump’s Waterloo?; 6) Have Trump loyalists been rattled by by the public hearing?; 7) The White House has seemingly directed the FBI to interview the first two Kavaugh accusers but not the third, Julie Swetnick, who asserts Kavanaugh attended a party decades ago when she was gang-raped. Is this a prudent move or an outcome that will forever cast a shadow over Kavanaugh and thereby scuttle his ever being appointed? 8) President Donald Trump signed a spending bill that will avert a government shutdown despite previously calling the measure “ridiculous” because it did not include funding for a wall along the southern border. Even so there is doubt over whether the President will sign the bill raising the specter that funding for the government would lapse as early as Monday. Has Trump lost inertia over building a wall on the southern border? 9) Will Kavanaugh’s ultimate fate have a ripple effect on America? How so?; 10) Contemplating that Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court can Democrats launch a 2020 impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh if they gain majority in the mid-term elections this November?; 11) A federal judge on Friday gave the go-ahead to a lawsuit filed by 200 congressional Democrats against President Trump alleging he has violated the Constitution by doing business with foreign governments while in office. The lawsuit is based on the Constitution’s emoluments clause, which bars presidents from taking payments from foreign states. Can Pres. Trump overcome the array of inquiries into his business, his campaign, and his charity? Listen in from 10:30-11am.
