Gotta love clarkstown, they will say " we need to create green jobs " so here one is and I understand the construction is to be done by an Albany contractor. The workers will get off the thruway stay at the motel on 303 and go home on weekends. No green jobs for Ckarkstown or Rockland, Orange, or Bergen and away to Albany goes Clarkstowns money to be spent there, not at our mall here.

The Green is in the pockets of the cops and guys like Lettre and The Wagner bunch which includes Amy Mele and her two brothers, all on the Green Train. They are the offspring of David Wagner, a former Conservative Party official. DID SOMEONE SAY WE HAD A BOARD OF ETHICS, INCLUDING A PRIEST?
