Move over, Yellow Pages

Assemblyman Greg Ball is offering to be an employment clearinghouse for those seeking to hire “businesses, contractors and individual laborers who either do business legally or do not hire illegal aliens.” The Carmel Republican wants to build a database of such entities.

From Ball:
“Home Improvement Projects – Assemblyman Ball is building a database of businesses, contractors and individual laborers who either do business legally or do not hire illegal aliens. The idea is to develop a system where residents who want to hire or have work done around the house, can do so legally and have an avenue other than hiring an illegal day laborer. If you are, or know of, legal workers and/or businesses that hire legal laborers, please reward them by sending Assemblyman Ball their contact information. These individuals and businesses will then be promoted and the Assemblyman will be referring customers to these businesses via the new website. Send emails and information to gball@ball4ny.com.”

  1. GOD BLESS THIS MAN. IT’S NICE TO SEE A LEADER FOR A CHANGE.

    AND THANK YOU TO ANDY SPANO FOR ALSO DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PROBLEM.

    WHEN THE POLITICIANS WAKE UP, THEY WILL REALIZE THAT WE THE PEOPLE (REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT REGARDLESS) DO WANT CHANGE AND WE DO WANT SEE THESE PEOPLE CUT OFF.

  2. What a waste of space. Hopefully the voters in the 99th will have had enough of his posturing by the time November 2008 rolls around.

  3. There is nothing about this idea that is “posturing” – Ball is doing what he was elected to do: address the illegal immigrant problem in this region. I really like the idea of having a database of legal contractors. It is difficult to find legal help and I’ll admit it, I have had to hire illegally before. Having this database, god willing it cathces fire, will also pressure illegal contractors to make the switch. I just can’t stop saying it but I really do like this idea – it’s outside of the box and fresh. I’ll be sending some businesses to that address pretty soon.

  4. Say what you want, but this is not about politics as much as taking action and imporving our way of life. If you don’t think Ball is doing the right thing, take a walk down Main St. in Brewster this Saturday evening (after sundown). What a shame. Hopefully the next step will be building code enforcement; last time I checked it was unsafe and illegal to “rent” a two bedroom apartment to 16 men. WAKE UP BREWSTER!
