Where Is Our Money to the MTA Going?

The MTA takes in $5.5 billion a year just in various dedicated taxes. This does not include tolls and fares. Think about it: $5.5 billion just in taxes. Surcharges are taxes. Fees are taxes. There are whole states that do not spend that much. Yet, we are told the MTA needs more money for infrastructure. So, where is the money going?

I wrote last week how our elected officials bargain against ...

I’ve published these interviews in the order in which I’ve received the candidate’s responses. The final response to my questions comes from Councilman Greg Bernard:

Coping with Your Child’s Stress—Part 2

Dr. Linda,

Thank you for your column about stress. The day I read it, my seventh-grade daughter, Lily, came home from school with a pile of binders that filled her entire backpack. This once happy little girl, who used to skip into the house after school, walked into the house and had a total meltdown. I tried to make light of it and even brought up something funny that happened to me at work ...

Taxpayers vs. the Town Board

October 20, 2017

The Yorktown Town Board has decided to build a sports complex. The sum of $4.6 million plus another $1.5 million from the gas pipeline company is being used. The total cost is now estimated to be $6.1 million to build without a vote from the taxpayers of Yorktown.

At the Sept. 19 town board meeting, I presented 2,633 signatures on a petition against moving the highway garage. I asked the board ...
