ALBANY IN THE REAR
DISCOVER UPTOWN ALBANY
WHY? THAT IS WHERE THE VOTES ARE!
SHEEHAN, MCLAUGHLIN and COMMISSO
have been in office for years.
How come they haven't dealt with traffic
pedestrian safety problems all the time
they have been in office?
Sheehan wants to raise funds for another
study. McLaughlin wants to " educate" dumb
ass drivers and pedestrians how to utilize
traffic lights and crosswalks
At the same time Sheehan rams through
her REZONE ALBANY zoning changes
with the vote of her 12 rubber stramps
on the Common Council, including the
Common Council Members who are
supposed to represent Wards 8, 9, 10
12, 13 and 14.
REZONE ALBANY will spur a rush
of development which will destroy the
residential integrity, quality of life, homes
values and City property tax base that
supports City schools and City government
services, adversely impacting every City
resident. Traffic/pedestrian safety issues
will only get worse!
Councilman Robinson , Common Council
President candidate, gets beat up in Council
caucus, called an "angry black man" for
wanting the Council to Vote on his Resolution
for a Moratorium on Rezone Albany until
January 2018, when the Mayor and Common
Council Members who are elected in the
November General Election are seated.
Current Council President Carolyn McLaughlin
leads the attack on Robinson. Is she really a
mayoral candidate or just a shill for Sheehan
to split the anti Sheehan primary vote?
Council Member Conti slyly cons Robinson
into withdrawing the Resolution and resubmitting
an amendment to th effective date of Rezone
Albany to January 2018. That amendment would
die in Committee and never make it to the floor
for a vote of the full Council. Clever dodge by
This avoids the other Council Members having
to cast a vote on the Robinson REZONE ALBANY
9th Ward Council Member Judy Deshante a
Sheehan ally and wife of former City Court
Judge Keefe, admits that passage of the Resolution
would harm development plans already in progress
in Uptown single family neighborhoods as a result
of the June 1st effective date.
What development plans? Where? By whom?
Why haven't these development plans been
made known to residents of the uptown single
family residential neighborhoods?
Oh, after the Democratic Primary September 12?
Is it any wonder that 4 sale signs outnumber
political candidate lawn signs in uptown Albany?
Voters that can, have another vision of Albany -
in the rear view mirror!
