Spano son takes shot at dad

359

Can’t imagine how County Executive Andrew Spano is feeling over the recent commercial featuring his son, David Spano, speaking  out against his dad and county government. In it, he says Westchester “taxes are spiraling out of control” and there’s no end in sight.

The advertisement, paid for by the controversial Westchester Guardian newspaper publisher Sam Zherka, is plugging an anti-county government group that is having a meeting Thursday night in Yonkers.

What do you think?  Is this ad fair game?

Read Phil Reisman’s take here.

Update: Spoke to Legislator Ken Jenkins today. His take was that family matters are off-limits in politics. While the sensational aspect of this may grab some attention, it actually hurts the anti-county government cause, he said.

“All the individuals involved in that should hang their heads in shame,” Jenkins said. “If that’s what your going to advertise your cause, that means your cause is already lost.”

  1. BARBARAS BABY DADDY on

    I DONT KNOW BARBARA RICCI AT ALL AND I HAVE VISITED HER SITE AND ENJOYED IT. BUT, ALTHOUGH PEOPLE ON THIS BLOG HAVE BARRAGED HER WITH NAME CALLING ETC, SHE SEEMS VERY CAPABLE OF TAKING IT AND DISHING IT BACK OUT. SHE ALSO EITHER TYPES REAL QUICK OR SPENDS ALOT OF TIME MONITORING AND REPLYING TO POSTS ON THIS SITE. AS FOR HER REPLIES, I THINK SHE HAS SOME INNER FRUSTRATIONS OR ANGER THAT SHOW VISIBLY ON HER POSTS. I WILL CONTINUE TO SURF HER SITE BECAUSE I ENJOY THE CONTENT.

    AS FOR NICK SPANO, I AM NOT CONCERNED ABOUT THE POLITICS OF WESTCHESTER. EVERY TIME I RAN INTO NICK, AS WELL AS HIS BROTHER MIKE, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GREETED WITH A WARM SMILE AND NOT RUSHED AWAY. SO NICK AND MIKE ARE OK IN MY BOOK…

  2. Pace Yourself on

    The CAPS got to go it shows computer illiteracy not very sharp and the Spano smiles at you phony and warm, your probably poor and desperate for attention, the Spano’s lend you an ear. Very nice!

  3. Im certainly not defending anybody. My argument here is that this woman bad mouths everybody she thinks has done wrong to her. If her husband was a independent business man , she could care less of the Teamsters and it would not bother her in the least. She hates Jean Piro, because the woman did her job and her office prosecuted her for child endangerment, even if it was not true, she obviously pissed someone off that they would go to lengths to prosecute her. She bad mouths the mayor of Yonkers, because she feels that he does not support unions and that why her husband is out of work. As for the person who is claiming that John Acropolis murder is being hidden by modern day corrupt politics. My advice is to read the New York Times Article which notes “A man who’s sister was engaged to Acropolis when he was gunned down has decided to write a book, however the City of Yonkers is not allowing the information to be released for their own reasons.” The artical also states that most of the people interviewed are now deceased. Again I don’t understand how you can blame a man who was 12 years old or his son who was not even born when this happened and what they have to gain by it now. Please explain this to me.

  4. SKINNYGINNY – you’re still wet behind the ears kid, go have a smoke and blow. Piro is scum she forgets who made her.

  5. You’s people sound like a bunch of wall street white collar criminals harassing a woman in the office…
