"The County Executive chose SPI in the first place because of SPI's vision for Playland," Read Morehe said. "The problem is not SPI's or the County's vision, the problem is SPI's inability or unwillingness to provide answers to the critical parking/traffic, environmental and financial concerns."

Hey SPI: Don't let the door hit you in the _ss on the way out. I've got the champagne chilling. If Read Moreanyone should be providing "clarity" it's SPI. Pretty typical of them to turn the mirror around back out at everyone else. Arrogance and hubris all the way to the bitter end.

Get to discovery, and let the depositions begin!!!

tedc, It is a real travesty that Leon was skipped over. He certainly deserved it for all theRead Morecorrup tion he exposed. ======================================= The other travesty is we still have Pickup as our City Manager. At the very least I believe he is guilty of mismanagement as far as what occurred at Rye Golf Club under his watch. ====================================== Do you know if Pickup is going to testify under oath at the Grand Jury? He is Rye's chief fiduciary officer so if he isn't, why not? What about Connors? He approved a $250,000 payment to RM Staffing and then was Pickup's choice to start a criminal investigation into RM Staffing. What about Pickups secretary whose kids supposedly had jobs at RM Staffing? What about French and Parker who conducted their own investigation into RGC? What about Nodarse who threw a FREE party complete with caviar and top shelf booze for Suzie Morrison at the RGC and then illegally withheld records of this event? ====================================== If none of these people are going to testify then who is? I think the credibility of the Grand Jury will be undermined if these people are not called to testify. Are we taxpayers going to pay for Brune & Richard or their auditors to testify while giving a free pass to the likes of Pickup?

We - of The Corridore of Corrution - are not alone in our views.

While the numbers are telling, the most glaring statement is the low percentage of the totalRead MoreAmerica n population that partook in the survey. It seems hardly news worthy to report that Americans distrust the ethics of career politicians since the concept of professional politician is inconsistent with the founding principles of America as they are taught in basic education. An interesting contrast would have been to ask if their respective politicians were more or less ethical than politicians from other areas. The idea of spending vast amounts of money in order to ask for a non paying or low paying job is hard to apply ethical logic to. Logic becomes harder to apply when one considers the state of affairs at all levels of the political spectrum which seems the result of less than ethical people making the decisions. However, by continuing to elect those who represent what we aspire to be rather than those who represent who we actually are, only the interests of those we aspire to be will be served. The obvious priority interest seems to be to deny the aspirations of electorate in order to maintain exclusivity. If we truly have a representative democracy, what does the poll actually say about the ethics of the represented?

Yes! The gravel was removed yesterday. Thank you Mayor Sack for listening to the community,Read Moremaking an executive decision and leading the Council to consensus. City Manager Scott Pickup canNOT act unilaterally, violating City code and NYS law by graveling over green space. This is an interim step but it is step in the right direction.

Impressive! Would have imagined "CEO" (my ass) Hiccup would have "minnowRead Moredragged&quot ; that one until Memorial Day. Some soil, fertilizer, seed, and Mr. Carey's trees and it's a done deal? Does a water hose reach from your house to said parquette? By the way, GREAT CEO's anticipate events rather than react to them - sadly we haven't seen that in Rye, ever, from the City Manager's office to the Ryyyyeeeee City Council, and, poignantly, that is REALLY what's wrong in Rye. We tried to rectify by having one of our own run for City Council, but, the Rod Brown's of the world didn't anticipate only reacted - what the heck is new on that front???

...and, Rodney A. Brown STILL hasn't showed up for church since he utterly and thoroughlyRead Moreembarrasse d himself and the entire Rye Democratic Party 2013. in fact, in his entire 7 year tenure, the only thing he did right was comply with the Committee's demand to RESIGN!
Committee for Election Equality April 10, 2014 at 08:09 PM
Yep, win one for the Gipper here. Tedc, you have to wait to see what discovery brings. Obviously,Read MoreY andrasevich has zero plans to go down on his own...;)
Interested Bystander April 10, 2014 at 08:48 AM
I'm confused. You're taking issue with the accuracy of the piece or Geoffrey? I guess I'm missingRead Moreth e context.
Deirdre Curran April 10, 2014 at 08:57 AM
Not taking issue with accuracy of post. "Geoffrey" (you're on a first name basis withRead Morehim? ) put out a ridiculous statement in their press release:============================"“The vision has not changed; you may hear people say it has changed, but it hasn’t,” he said. “It has evolved.”===============more of the insipid SPI Double Speak.
Deirdre Curran April 10, 2014 at 08:59 AM
With their PR guy using logic like that, I sure hope HE'S not the one who got the bulk of the $600k Read Morethey supposedly spent. And was that actually out of their own pockets, or was that money that was donated to the non-profit through fundraising? Some FACTS and proof to back up that particular claim would be appropriate if they are going to make it.
Bob Zahm April 10, 2014 at 09:34 AM
At this point, Deirdre, I believe the enter Playland change program (independent of vendor) is dead Read Morein the water due to the regulatory death grip that now exists between Rye and the County. Until Rye and the County can agree on regulatory review / approval process, nothing at Playland is going anywhere. So, forget this season, probably forget next season as well given Astorino's [wasted] focus on the governor's race. And you can probably also forget any material spend on fixing up Playland in that same period of time.
dita von struedel van trappyodel April 10, 2014 at 09:59 AM
I believe Mr. Bob is right. A number of appropriate clichés come to mind... for theRead Moreanti-SPI crowd.... be careful what you wish for, easier to destroy than to build, change is hard to accept and, of course, now what is the plan General?
Rye Reader April 10, 2014 at 10:14 AM
Deirdre, yes, "Commercial Real Estate Developers trying to execute a Land Grab of publicRead Moreproper ty for their own private profit"--only it's even worse than that. Since the bailouts of 2008-9 and the attending economic crash, the MO for such moneyed interests is now not to take ownership of the land, which would involve paying taxes on it, but to leave the land nominally in public ownership but to rack up profits from the public's treasure, as in the shameful sweetheart deal the Tikki Bar has. It's more socializing costs while privatizing gain.
