1) We delve into the resolve voters had shown it casting their ballot for the presidential and local elections despite the cold and rain.
2) We celebrate Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner who recognized Westchester County Board of Elections deficiency in planning for the high voter turnout and suggested conduct to mitigate the concerns over line that stretched for over 5 hours before being able to cast one’s vote.
3) We speak to the demise of the Westchester Broadway Theatre due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
4) We contemplate if students, teachers, among other staff, can maintain a safe environment from a resurgent COVID-19 pandemic. Is computer access the only prudent form of conduct? Have any alternatives worked from people being infected from with the school buildings? Is technology the only solution?
5) We learn that Westchester County is being heavily considered for New York City buyers who need not reside in New York City because they can telecommute, purchase a residence at prices that offer larger residences at lesser costs. Were communities offer excellent school districts, the sophistication of New York City, less crime, among other perks. We learn that buyers are contemplating the Sound Shore (Rye, Rye Neck, Port Chester, Harrison, Mamaroneck/Larchmont) and Northern Westchester (Bedford, Armonk, Chappaqua, Pound Ridge, North Salem). Communities which showed the significant percentage increase in sales by New York City residents were Rye, Mamaroneck, Bedford, and Irvington. From 10-10:30am EST.
Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst / Pundit speaks to the national political landscape. We learn what the unexpectedly high voter turnout it may change the demeanor of the White House, possibly retake the Senate, and how, if at all, newly installed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett may have influence over the outcome, if at all. Senator Susan Collins is seemingly very vulnerable. Are there other Republican candidates who my lose out to a Democratic challenger?
There is conjecture that Florida, and Texas has coalesced around the Biden/Harris candidacy, but that Pennsylvania is still uncertain. Can voter turnout on November 3rd still have an influence over the final voter tally outcome? For those casting their vote on Tuesday, can we surmise why they delayed to such a late date when so many options were offered? From 10:30-11am EST.
Savvy Yonker Seniors who attend the Bernice Speckman Community Center and adjacent Coyne Park facilities situated at 777 McLean Avenue have been patient and civil for many years, but it seems the powers that be have not been listening. We expect about 10 seniors who will give expression to the lack of response elected officials have shown to their individual and collective inquiries. These savvy seniors have shared their requests for mediation for years due to the deterioration of the senior center which has become unsafe, and yet, the outcry for a dog park moving ahead despite the compromised health circumstances of those who attend the senior center moves ahead unabated. The senior center bathroom wash basins have a patina of rust that is unsafe. Some of these savvy eniors advise that they must use a roll at or to move about but that they cannot use the bathroom stalled because they cannot enter these stalls. Circumstances that are shameful to hear and more shameful to learn because these are the savvy seniors who have built a city people are proud of. It seems the issue now is whether government will serve our senior populace with the dignity they have earned or whether Yonkers prefers to serve dogs instead. From 11am-12Noon EST.
