RETIRE ALBANY MAYOR
AND COMMON COUNCIL

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan
issued an Executive Order
declaring the City of Albany
to be a Sanctuary City.

The Albany Common Council
in December 2016 declared the
same.

http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Sheehan-reaffirms-Albany-s-commitment-to-11094595.php#photo-12713902

All of the above are in violation
of their oaths of public office as
required by the U.S. and New York
State Constitutions.

 https://www.dos.ny.gov/info/constitution/article_13_public_officers.html

Mayor Sheehan and the Albany
Common Council are lawbreakers
and by these declared policies
doom Albany to fiscal insolvency 
make Albany residents less
safe from, and more vulnerable to
crime and acts of terrorism.

Albany voters should refuse to
sign candidate designating petitions
for the above incumbents in June
nor vote for them in the September 
party primaries  and November
General Election.

ALBANY. DETROIT
ON THE HUDSON?

The 2017 Albany City
elections will determine
if Albany becomes Detroit
on The Hudson.

Four years of the Sheehan
administration have resulted
in  fiscal insolvency for the
City of Albany.

Governor Cuomo included
a 12.5 million dollar bailout
to close the 12.5 million dollar
hole in the 2017 City budget.

Mayor Sheehan showed her
gratitude by immediately
demanding a similar state
bailout next year.

She knows the Governor faces
a tough primary in 2018 and
may provide a similar bailout
then.

But what happens thereafter
whether or not the Governor
wins another 4 year term? 

Recall the message in this song.
Don't spit into the wind. Don't
tug on Superman's cape.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4qUXcXuMSE



Regardless, insolvency still
looms over the City because
of Mayor Sheehan and the
Common Council policy
declaring Albany to be a
Sanctuary City,

As a result the City of Albany
stands to lose millions of dollars
in federal aid annually.

Add to this the failed moves of
the Mayor and Common
Council  including (1) 2 million
dollars wasted on red light
traffic camera installations
(2)  enactment of a trash tax
(3) failure to sell the Palace
Theater to a private sector
buyer and (4) promoting
Rezone Albany which will
destroy neighborhood
residential integrity, quality
of life, home values and the
city property tax base in
currently zoned R-1B single
family zoned districts which
pay the lion's share of property
taxes that support City schools
and City services. 

What can Albany City voters
do?

1. Insist that the Common
Council table the Rezone
Albany Ordinance No. 26.31.17           
and map until 2018.

See related posts detailing
why and how:

 http://bpcnanews.blogspot.com/

2. Oppose Sanctuary City policy

3. Support consolidation of
City schools with City 
government, one property
tax roll to support both
making the Mayor and
Common Council responsible
and accountable for operation
and performance of City schools
and returning to a K-8
neighborhood school system
which is best for kids, parents
and neighborhoods.

City schools account for 2/3
of  property taxes, and have
a 50 percent drop our rate.

Tabling Rezone Albany
opposing Sanctuary City
Policy and
Consolidation of City Schools
with City government are three
steps that can restore the City
of Albany to fiscal solvency.

Voters should understand this
and not sign petitions or vote
for candidates for Mayor
Common Council President
Treasurer, Auditor and Common
Council for each of the 15 City
Wards who do not support the
above positions.

PRESIDENT TRUMP
TWEET IS SPOT ON 

Obamacare was designed and enacted
by the Democrats  to self destruct so
that they could move to a single payor
government run program.

Democrats did not expect Trump to
win.

They and their media allies are doing
all they can to undermine President
Trump at every turn.

The burden to return health insurance
to the private sector rests with Democrats.

Democrats own Obamacare and will
suffer the consequences in the 2018
Mid Term elections for U S Senate
and House.

Time for Democrats in the  Senate
and House to put Americans and
America First before blind allegiance
to far left ideologues who have gained
control of a once proud American
political party.

Time for enrolled Democrats to
"throw the bums out" and restore
their party to a truly American
political party or else the Democratic
Party will be reduced to a minor extremist 
political party.

FAKE REPEAL?

The GOP Repeal-Replace
bill. Read the bill and
criticisms in yesterday's
post, this blog.

Going nowhere fast.  Why?

Democrats and some 
Republicans combined are
obstructing real repeal.

The Democrats own Obamacare.
They enacted it without a
single GOP vote.

Nancy Pelosi  said Congress
had to pass the huge complex
Obamacare legislation to find
out what was in it. Now we know.

Obamacare is imploding.
Let it!

In the alternative do this:

Those 25 or so Democratic 
Senators up for election in
2017 will have to answer to
the people.

President Trump should
shift focus to rapid military
buildup, securing the border
enforcing existing immigration
law and stimulating the economy
through corporate and personal
tax cuts.

Security and a strong economy
go hand in hand.

Reduce the size of the federal
government from within,
reduce funding of programs 
and eliminate 
burdensome regulations that
hinder economic development.

To do this requires cleaning
house and staffing federal
agencies with  like minded
executives and staff.

No new debt caused by a huge
infrastructure spending plan.
Let the states find ways to
finance infrastructure, medicaid
welfare, education and their
rotting cities.

See how long sanctuary cities
will last.

Take an end run around
the Democratic and GOP
insiders who are obstructing
your delivering on election
promises made to the people.

Take your case to the people.
They get it!

NOT SMART

Back the opponent of the incumbent
Governor in 2014 Democratic Primary.
He wins. Now expect him
(and state taxpayers) 
to bail you out of a 12.5 million+ 2017
City budget hole resulting from your
failed policies, priorities and excessive
spending.

http://www.timesunion.com/7dayarchive/article/Sheehan-launches-push-for-Capital-City-Funding-10953971.php

Yes, NYS should make annual payments
in lieu of taxes for all land in the City of
Albany used by NYS.

It has been said that God helps those
who help themselves.

What can you do?   Resign from office.
Or make drastic course corrections in
your behavior, policies, priorities and
spending!

1. Declare Albany is not a sanctuary city
    and that you will cooperate with and
    support existing federal immigration
    law.

2. Albany has a high poverty rate among
    citizens. It is folly to welcome more
    people to the city, and county, particularly
    unskilled, non English speaking illegals
    and "refugees" who do not share  our
    culture, love for America and political
    heritage.

    They wind up on welfare and become
     a burden to local property taxpayers
     who have learned that the city schools
     will need another half million dollar
     budget increase, ( and how many million
     more every year, thereafter?) to provide
     a school and staff especially for catering
     to the non English speakers.

     Remember the January 10 2017 school
     propositions that were approved \
     by a vote of 2,000 (your supporters)
     to 600?

     You told us that approval would not
     result in any increase in property taxes.

  3. Consolidate city schools with city
      government. One property tax, not
      two, to fund both. Assume responsibility
      for the operation and performance of
      city schools.  Index the property tax
      rate to the graduation rate. Return to
      a K-8 neighborhood city school system.

 4.  Do not extend the recently enacted
      city trash tax to single family homeowners.

5.    Scrap the failed red light traffic camera
       boondoggle

6.   Eliminate all the money spent on 
      consultants for all sorts of policies
      and plans, such a rezone Albany.

7.   Inventory all the land in the city
      occupied by not for profits. Consider
      taxing those, whose activities, are
      detrimental achieving City fiscal
      solvency.

These are just a few of the options  to
restore fiscal solvency for the City of
Albany that should be explored in the
2017 elections for Mayor Common
Council President, Treasurer, Auditor
and the 15 Common Council Ward
seats.

Oh, remember this song as you 
endeavor to restore the City of Albany
to fiscal solvency....

Will local Democrat voters rise

IDEOLOGY, LOVE
AND COMPASSION?

As a property tax payer
in the City of Albany it
is difficult to feel valued
and loved.

Read: the City School
District website:

 http://www.albanyschools.org/

The Acting Superintendent's
letter did little to reassure me.

1,700 school district employees
17 schools, 9, 600 hundred
students, 57 languages spoken
by students, a translation link
for those who cannot read
English?

An office of ENL and Refugee
services, welcoming immigrants
and refugees?

There is no need  to keep the
current Superintendent acting
while scouring the nation for
a candidate, forcing her to pander
to the ideologically far left school
board.

Kimberly Wilkins is qualified.
Search no further. Appoint her!

Was it in the best interests of
Albany students, parents and
property taxpayers for the leftist
school board to oppose President
Trumps's nominee for Education
Secretary, when the Albany City
schools depend so heavily on
federal funding?

 http://www.albanyschools.org/district/communications/DistrictNews/2016-17/Docs/DeVos_resolution_1-17.pdf

How smart was that?


What kind of civics example does
the school board set for students
by holding bond act and building
referenda  at obscure times with
reduced numbers of polling places
and voting irregularities?

Remember the 196 million dollar
high school reconstruction bond act?

The recent January 10 referenda
on a 4th middle school?

All school district budget votes
and referenda should be held at
General Elections run by the
Albany County Board of Elections.

The City Schools  should be
consolidated with city government
with one property tax roll to fund
both. Albany should return to a
K-8 neighborhood school system.
The Mayor and City Common 
Council should be held responsible
and accountable for the operation
and performance of city schools.
Index the school tax portion to
the graduation rate.  Abolish the
school board.

Put this on the November 2017
General Election ballot and let
city voters cast their votes for or
against. 

Property tax relief and improved
graduation rates would follow
voter approval.

Congress has the power but
does it have the courage?

The answer may have to wait 
the mid term elections (2018).

ALBANY SANCTUARY
CITY ..........OR NOT? 
With updates: 1/27 and 1/29.

http://www.sanctuarycities.info/sanctuary_state_new_york.htm

Last night WGY Radio  810 NEWS
had a report that  announced Albany
Mayoral candidate . Carolyn McLaughlin
currently Albany Common Council
President, advocates/supports Albany
being a sanctuary city for illegal aliens.


Is this a wise move for a financially

insolvent city government and city

school district which depend on

federal grants to stay afloat?


Property tax payers pay attention! 

Update: 1/27/17

Frank Commisso jr interview with
Paul Vandenburgh on Talk 1300 radio
unannounced candidate for Albany
Mayor?  No position on  sanctuary
city. Listen:

 http://www.talk1300.com/CMT/podcast/PVandFrankCommissoJr126171.mp3

Incumbent Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan
a big advocate/supporter of sanctuary city
status for Albany.


http://wamc.org/post/sanctuary-protecting-immigrant-communities

Will the Albany Common Council adopt
a local law declaring Albany a sanctuary
city? 

Will the Albany County Legislature oppose
sanctuary status for Albany City/County?

What will Cohoes, Watervliet and the Towns
and villages of Albany County do?

Sanctuary city/town/county? Is a defining issue
in the 2017 local elections. 




Update Sunday, January 29:

Sheehan and McLaughlin support Albany being
a sanctuary city. Commisso is not sure Albany
is a sanctuary city.

 http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cynpooler/2017/01/29/frank-commisso-shares-his-thoughts-on-the-state-of-the-city-address

All three appear to believe that winning the
Democratic Primary translates to winning the
November 2017 General Election.

Will a Democratic candidate emerge who
opposes Albany being a sanctuary city, who
supports enforcing existing U S Immigration
Law and the rule of Law, who opposes the
trash tax, who recognizes that oil and natural
gas resource development will create needed
jobs and spur economic development in
Albany and, that together with consolidation
of city schools with city government, with one
property tax roll to support both, will allow the
City of Albany to provide real property
tax relief and achieve a balanced city budget
that does not rely on annual handouts from
New York State?

Highly unlikely!

Will such a candidate emerge in the November 
2017 General Election thereby
giving  Albany voters a real choice to prevent
Albany from becoming Detroit on the Hudson?

Maybe?

  PS:  Here is what a Sheriff in Massachusetts thinks:

Albany citizen voters what do you think? 

What about President Trumps Immigration Executive
Order?

CONSERVATIVES CALL ON VOTERS TO
VOTE NO ON CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION
 
The New York State Conservative Party's executive committee, at its first meeting of the new year, passed a resolution calling on voters to reject this November's ballot question calling for a Constitutional Convention. "It is important for voters to understand that the history of holding Constitutional Conventions proves they are a colossal waste of taxpayers' money that fails to accomplish what supporters claim," said Chairman Michael R. Long. The text of the resolution follows:
 
Resolution, in opposition to a Constitutional Convention, presented and adopted by the members of the State Executive Committee on Saturday, January 7, 2017:
 
Whereas the New York State Constitution, since 1846, requires that voters decide every twenty years if there should be a Constitutional Convention to amend the New York State Constitution;
Whereas voters will have the opportunity to decide in the upcoming November, 2017 general election if such a Constitutional Convention shall take place;
Whereas the last four Constitutional Conventions were a carbon copy of legislative sessions and the majority of delegates were influential legislators;
Whereas the delegates that were influential legislators were able to collect a salary as a delegate and a legislator;
Whereas the past Constitutional Conventions were driven by personal agendas and special interest groups;
Whereas voters have failed to pass 7 of the 9 Constitutional Conventions since the first Constitutional Convention in 1776-1777;
Whereas legislative members have and will continue to present voters another means of amending the New York State Constitution without the undo expense of holding a Constitutional Convention;
Now, therefore, be it resolved that the New York State Conservative Party urges the voters of New York State to vote NO to a Constitutional Convention that would convene in Albany beginning April of 2019.
