RESTORE ALBANY TO
TO FISCAL SOLVENCY 

The PFM consultant report
recommends increasing
property taxes, selling the
Harriman State Office Campus
and Albany Municipal Golf
Course.

Conservative Mayoral candidate
Sullivan says keep the Harriman
State Office Campus. NYS should
compensate the City of Albany 
with an annual 15 million dollar
PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes).

The Common Council should
declare that the City of Albany
is NOT a Sanctuary City. This
declaration  will avoid a loss
of 7, or more, million dollars 
Federal aid to the City of Albany.

!5 million plus 7 million equals
22 million; closing the projected
looming budget gap highlighted
in the PFM report.

Mixed use development and/or
sale of the Albany Municipal
Golf Course is strongly opposed
by Sullivan.

CITY HALL ON THE ROAD
MAKES CAMPAIGN STOP
AT MATER CHRISTI 5:30 PM
MONDAY, JUNE 5. UPDATED

So say the City portable road signs
placed on Hurst Ave.

Do you suppose Kathy Sheehan will
explain why her Rezone Albany Zoning
Code which she rammed through the
Common Council, May 15, with the vote
of her 12 rubber stamp Council elves
rezoned the present Mater Christi
Rectory and adjacent green space
commercial and why the SW Corner
Whitehall/New Scotland green space
across from the Stewart's shop was
rezoned commercial rather than being
dedicated as the proposed Dan O'Connell
Memorial Pocket Park? 

And why she has done nothing to
strictly enforce speed limits, no
passing on right, reckless driving 
running red lights/stop signs and
other V&T laws on New Scotland
Avenue, Buckingham Drive, Whitehall
Rd, Krum Kill Rd, South Manning
Blvd and tributary neighborhood streets?

All this, and more, which erodes the
neighborhood residential integrity
quality of life, home values, and City
property tax base and support for
city schools/city government services
in an already fiscally insolvent city.

The Sheehan City Hall On The Road
show should hit the road out of town 
for Chicago afterwards.

Updated: 2 AM  June 5. Jack
The Puppy took me for a walk
before the rain storm moved in.

The APD portable traffic sign
at the corner of Hurst and Hopewell
Mater Christi Church, was still lighting
up the night sky announcing the
Sheehan City Hall Campaign Road
Show at 5:30 PM today.
