Brilliant move by Team Sabatini: A novel idea confer with the job creators, the revenue generators, the constituents, the business community and ask them the question; what can a town government do to make this town business friendly and profitable? Something that Supervisor Gromack and the ENTIRE TOWN BOARD.. never imagined during the length of their terms. Why? clearly.. not one shred of interest except how to reduce them to an ATM Machine.

I want to know how Mary Jane O'Connor was named to the Planning Board. What knowledge does she have to warrant this. Remove her from the Planning Board. This is just a political kick back!!!

Its about time someone was willing to listen to the people that make Clarkstown a place that people want to live. WE need change now or there won't be a future for this town or county.

Clarkstown has done a poor job with the drainage issues faced by residents in West NYack, Valley Cottage and New CIty. The current supervisor has not planned for or corrected the flooding issues that homeowners face constantly. It's time for a change at the top administrator and on the Town Council.
