  1. Basic Math Fail on

    The Legislators will need the time since the Astorino team has again loaded it with errors and numbers that might not pass in a basic 3 rd grade math test.

    See the Nov 16 story about this from Elizabeth Ganga on this blog section.

    The continued purposeful lack of cooperation between the Astorino team and the Board of Legislators is not what taxpaying voters want going forward.

    Voters across the US have spoken loudly that we want solutions and not antagonistic “bear traps” and “gothcha” events.
    People want more than Astorino’s annual antics with people’s lives and important programs.
