  1. Any mayor that improves the school system and keeps taxes stagnant, to allow residents to catch up will be a mayor for life. Any city that has a good school system will be a successful city. Mt vernon should study the operations of successful school district and follow that model. It is a shame that a city in one of the wealthiest county and wealthiest states of the country is so poorly rated. Rejuvenate Mount Vernon; it is one of the most beautiful and well accessed city. And people will be pouring in to invest in the city.

  2. Why should we trust anyone running for any office in mount Vernon.It will just be more of the same.In fighting, bills not being paid,high property taxes with little services, dirty streets, mount Vernonites feeling ashamed of its city because of its elected officials.

    1. Your comment is correct. It pertains to all politicians running on all levels straight to the white house. There is no quick fix other than the record of the candidate. We know the promises mean nothing. Why does Yonkers New Rochelle White Plains Greenburgh all run relatively smoothly ?? Why? Run an independent study and find out….
