    1. If you want to break the Spano’s stranglehold on Yonkers, vote for Scott Dennis, 5th Council District. Let sleeping Breens lie, vote for Dennis.

  1. How much does Nikolai Spano skim? He loves his cream. Didn’t the PBA engage Empire Strategic Planning as their lobby firm? How much does Nikolai really make on this deal?

  2. This is such a great event! Senator spano does a very good thing with this. Thank you for continuing this long tradition of giving a voice to those that wouldn’t normally have one. God bless you.
