    We cant wait to kick this mistake called Astorino out with the Wed trash pickup On Nov 6.
    It has to be or we are all doomed in Westchester with more taxes to pay for fines, to pay for loss of deserved Federal funds, no money for what we want from our taxes, and a national undeserved reputation for Westchester for being stupid ….…all because of this mistake named Astorino.
    Serves us right for electing a sportscaster professional talker with no credentials in people skills or objectivity.

    . . .I think ( after the Drunk Judge in a Place very well-known in one of the Counties of NY who kept his election and reelection for dacades over their Campaign ” . . .promising the Residents that, if they elect him and when they get a Traffic Violation Ticket, he as Judge will help them get out of it! ” ( TRUE FACT ) .

    And, finally the same ” considered Judge/Landlord etc., started his Campaigns visiting ( still in his Judge) Position, he started visiting Town Boards Meetings ; prior to that out of nowhere, he started claiming ” Protection” for a Police Officer to Protect him putting it on the ” Court Room” ! This Guy was a very strange character that I ever had the Honor of Witnessing Presiding a Court of Law.

    Then! Suddenly, out of no where he ” drops not seeking his Regular Reelection Practices. . ..LOL!

    No one knows what transpired! It was very strange moment! And, now after a few Years he almost like disappeared from the radius of the Town and County! . . .

    One time! I found him Peeping though the Windows of My Firm! He was directly staring staring in the West Wing of My Office! . . ..

    Coincidently, I was exiting for a Short Cigarette Break and the main entrance of my Building was right next to My West Wing windows. I almost caught him standing right infront look grossly inside that the Guy ( that Judge ) even didn’t notice my presence awaiting his attention.
    Finally when he saw me and our eyes met. . . he started acting wired! And, I extended My Hand to shake hand ( by the way we were already introduced and knew each other a fee month now ) and, he left my hand walked away did not shake my hand and walked up his Car parked right accross and keying it he turns aroud to addressing me ( as I was stunned why he didn’t shake hand with me ) now he sais ” . . . the Judges are not supposed to shake hand with the People! Because of the décorum or of the Court! But,didn’t use that word. Just stopped short! But, As a Constitutionalist I knew what he was implied.”

    And, he backed up his car and still In His Positions Honor I waiting to extend him the Courtesy of not lighting my Cigar! However, when he left and enjoying My Cigar! My thoughts were questioning me : Wait a second! How come a Guy Famous to Regularly Drink cheap bear $1 a piece! Everyday before arriving to Presiding Town Court found it difficult to shakehand with me? Then how easy it is that he drinks at a Bar and does he shakehands over there or not?

    Thank God! All JUDGES are not like him.

    . . .May be there is a different set of ” Rules and Décor of The Judge ( mentioned without name) for ” Shaking Hand With HABIBHASAN-An American Storyteller ” in Plain Public Sight and View Accross The Townline Road!. . .

    And, Shaking Hands with the Bar Patrons in a dark lit room under the Bar Tables? I really failed to understand the criteria of ( particularly ( that ) most dishonorable man that I ever met in my lifetime!

    . . . that biggest hypocrisy to unfair justice and Law!
