The ‘Friends and Family’ Hezitorial

PREAMBLE: Yonkers City Council President Mike Khader and Yonkers Democratic City Council Majority Leader Corazon Pineda-Isaac were not in attendance to at minimum veto the “welfare check” to benefit the financially bereft former Judge Daly. Which begs the question, “who speaks for fiscal responsibility representative of the the public’s interest?” It is after all they who pay the bills!

YONKERS, NY — April 18, 2021 — It is without a doubt that The Honorable Yonkers City Court Judge Thomas Daly lost the voter’s support for re-election to the Yonkers City Court for another term. Yet, no one need tear up with crocodile tears for the 21-years long veteran of the Yonkers City Court. Judge Daly has friends in high places after all. The love runs true and deep. The Yonkers Tribune has learned from people in the know that the shocked, “in denial,”  and  despondent Judge Daly was able to commandeer $140,000 over the next two years by pleading for  a “friends and family” send-off gift for being such a good “boy”! The “deserving” former Judge Daly’s plight was evidently more dire than the thousands of Yonkers Public School District students who require a Chromebook to undertake a full year of studies at their grade level. $140,000 would pay for 100,000 Chromebooks.

The Board of Contracts and Supplies is an unusual venue through which Judge Daly beseeched the powers that be to bequeath him a financial gift. It seemed a perfect hideaway for the fiscally unaware to conceive that a plot of such subterfuge would ever come to light. But alas, it has thanks to the “all knowing” insider who knew exactly where to look. A hat tip of thanks indeed. One thing is certain, the Daly’s will, at least over the next two years, be able to maintain their cozy  friendship by buying their “newspaper” reporter friend a meal. It is after all that they thereby were able to maintain their relationship beneath the chasm of integrity to which they each succumbed. Which proves the adage that every man has a price whereas women are not so fiscally swayed. They tend to adhere to a higher calling. Even so, integrity seems too easily maligned at the rate of $70,000 per annum.

  1. When you sleep with dogs, you get fleas. Khader is just trying to avoid the fleas. He won’t take a stand on anything that can jeopardizes his reelection. He will stay clear of Spano for fear of a broad side by Lakisha Collins-Bellamy.
    He will pander until election day, as he feathers his nest.

  2. This reminds me of the baseball loan that went from a state grant to BOE, then BOE to Baseball inc. The BOE had applied for a HVAC grant for the Boyce Thompson that had no roof or no windows back in the day, from the State. This was fraud and not one State entity would look at it. Who in the State or in Yonkers will look into this?????

    The corruption is so bad everywhere, look at the state budget $2 billion for illegal aliens, and they wonder why people are leaving this state. We are awash with money….

    1. Oh and I forgot that “grant” was for $640,000, just in case you were wondering why Yonkers and the State are always broke.

  3. Is this a situation where a state waiver has to obtained for this nonsensical waste of taxpayer money to be approved? Or is the judge an “outside contractor with a unique skill set”?

    1. Post

      Excellent question. It seems more a waiver for a “no show” to me than anything else. The “poor” Judge owns three homes. He is qualified for his pension. He has three homes. If he is so desperate for money perhaps it is time to kick the relatives out the door or to collect rent from them if he is speperate or he can sell the house he presently for his wife and himself. Or perhaps downsize. What would anyone in his circumstance do that proves to not be a burden on the taxpayer? Kindly, Hezi

  4. $70k is chump change in Yonkers (the chumps being the taxpayers).

    Maybe Khader can have a street named after Daly (preferably a dead end).

    City council zeroes.

  5. In addition to not attending BOCS (one of his privileges and responsibilities as CP), Khader has failed to deliver on all of his promises, is a known misogynist, has had all of his staff turn over on him multiple times, has given his family countless jobs, and more. Let’s not miss the forest for the trees people

  6. The Daly family- smelly, lazy, bottom feeders who bring nothing to the table

    It’s a shame that Corp Counsel Head Matthew Gallagher a reputable lawyer has to deal with the incompetent Daly family who can’t get jobs anywhere else besides with spaNO

  7. Could someone explain to me how this is possible? The voters said no to Daly and McGrath so the Mayor takes it upon himself to give them taxpayers jobs anyway?
    The same Mayor that threatened Brandon Neider because he wanted to run against David Tubiolo? The same guy that threatened to expose ten years of fraudulent petitions that include Mayor Mike Spanos race? Riddle me this … how is this Mayor going to make it out of office without being arrested? I know so many little goodies and if I KNOW it is only a matter of time as I sit here and eat popcorn. I have more respect for the MAFIA then I do Nick Spano and his oompa loompas! Let’s face it Mikey is an alcoholic and does not have the smarts to run this city.
    Nicky and Zehy are in a race to see which one ends up back in Federal prison first! It is not IF it is WHEN!

  8. Daly has zero integrity- Daly buys delfim sheppards pie for him to smear and falsely accuse people of stuff on his newspaper that no one reads

    1. Have seen Delfim finish off at least 8 full size Whoppers meals in one sitting on a park bench across from Burger King 262 st. Bronx someone needs to clean him up he is filthy ragged clothing grease and other stuff smeared all over face and head.

      1. Pet shops in Yonkers just use his newspaper for droppings at bottom of bird rat mice cages.
        Just look in the windows at the pet shop next to the old Park hill movie theater.

  9. Both Spanos and Khader will reward their friends. Look at Micky Sabatino and $75k a year payment for overturning term limits. How many Khaders are on city payroll?

  10. The DOJ and DA need to investigate this!!!!

    I have been a whistleblower about the Daly Family for over a year now- Carol Daly is infamous for her tenure in city hall to not do her full hours and come and go as she pleases! This contract is a slap on the face to tax payers. Carol Daly also has been known to practice sub-par hygiene as well as her husband I guess it runs in the Daly household!!!!!

    2.5 years till this mayor is out smh
