PSL, the wager was that the petitions that were filed would not knock Jov off of the ballot.
Hmmm....I think I'm going to make mine a double espresso. Thanks PSL!
Jay, why do you allow this on your website? Was this how you envisioned the website to be when you launched it?
Jim, I agree with you 100% (including the civility comments the other day). PSL is hellbent on getting Jov out of the race. Why? He has every right to run (regardless of the lawsuits/petitions he is filing. As a matter of fact, he is going to owe me an Espresso!). Without knowing a ton about what is going on currently, I see no way that Sack loses this race. I have a feeling that Rye politics are going to take on a whole new look come the new year. New PC, new city mgr -- it is going to be interesting to see what other changes Joe makes.

Need Change, minor correction. You wrote "The cops in Rye are working without a contract for 5 years now. so since by state law (Taylor law) they can not protest they are not writing tickets as a slow down job action." The Taylor Law prohibits NYS employees from striking. Police can protest. If they do strike, the PBA will be fined two days for every day missed.

Jim, I have no idea. I'm guessing your wife made it quite clear on the phone that she was terrified and this was definitely something more than someone "flipping the bird" and driving away. Even if it was during shift change or if there were no officers available to respond, I'm surprised they didn't ask her to drive around the block and stop into HQ and make a report.

Laws certainly were broken! At the very least a report with a description of the persons involved and the vehicle should have been taken.

PSL, what is your legal objection to Killian?

Yuck on Starbucks! Rye needs a real Italian sidewalk cafe!

The law doesn't forbid him to run, it just imposes certain issues that if arise, must be properly addressed. That is why he will not be disqualified as per your request. A double espresso says I'm right?

PSL, just read your complaint. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that isn't going to fly. Jovanovich in not in violation of any laws that you mention. As for equal time, if a candidate requests to express their opinion, then the Rye Record will need to publish that point of view. "Keep moving folks. Nothing to see here..."

You mean four votes. And it says "Vote for two" so doesn't that mean 1st and 2nd get in?
Jim, was that popping noise I just heard you opening a bottle of Champagne??? ;-)

Jay, take this crap down. The name-calling and innuendos are bad enought, but there is no need for this (true or not). Let's try a little civility here. We see enough of this at the monthly City Council meetings.
Did you mean to post this under Judith A. Hill?

I guess great minds think alike! ;-)
Laus, not defending anyone but does it state anywhere in the Charter that the designation must be in writing? Can it be verbal?
PSL, I remember hearing at a council meeting that other department heads can be designated as authorized signers if the City Manager isn't available. Not sure if the City Charter is on line, but you should take a look at it.
Ray, Hen Island is not an issue that has high priority on my list; hence the lack of posts from me on this issue. I do understand that there are issues that you bring up that impact a lot of people, and for that I applaud you. But why do you care if someone is using 'gray water' to wash dishes or shower? Yes, to me it is disgusting, but I'm assuming that you are not eating at their house anyway.

Oh no...now what?
Perfect post for this!
Let me guess...Franco?

Jim, as a follow-up, I see that if you click on my screen name, you can see all of my prior posts. I don;t see any favoritism towards RPD. Take a look for yourself.

Jim, I'm stumped: "the sicilian eggplant"? Help me with this one. Defending the PD? I seem to remember the last conversations we had involved OT for Crossing Guard duty, which I said was outrageous. If I was part of RPD, I would have endorsed it!!! The other was (I think) something about RPD guarding Susan Keith. The PC replied to you that they weren't doing it and I said that I never would have answered that question that way. I would have said we don't comment on such issues. Again Jim, I have nothing to do with RPD, and other than supporting all LEO's, I have no connection whatsoever with them. Or the School Board. Or either Scott or Doug.
