I love your Bio! Yaaa.. Spano has to go. Not just term limits. almost Every City in Westchester has upscaled, over a 30 year slow process. New Rochelle, White Plains are good examples. Yonkers is a Rat Hole, unless you live in East Yonkers like Palmer Road on the boarder of Bronxville, Lincoln Park or Cental Avenue. This DINO has not touched the scandal, that is dangerous and crowed living conditions. The 100+ year old, wooden structures in South West Yonkers are beautiful pieces of architecture, but go up in flames fast, often taking almost a half of a block of houses on both sides of it. Near Pier Street and for many blocks, there isn’t any new structures, for housing, fresh food source (there are no supermarkets) in that section of The City Of Yonkers. Doesn’t Mike Spano see beyond Yonkers? If someone in my apartment buildings puts lights up on their terrace, it is game on for me! Lol. In a peaceful passive way. Spano is harder to vote out. Embrace a new mayor and if she doesn’t prove to have good intentions and motivations, it is 80% easier to vote out a 1 term mayor. Get Out The Vote. Get Out And Vote. Good luck to both Candidates in their race for Mayor in Yonkers.
