-Shop Local…What happens when our tax $’s subsidize Amazon?
-Affordability is relative, Newburgh is high maintenance, what’s hard to understand about that? Everyone speaks to the revenue side when addressing taxation, yet are silent toward the expenses. Newburgh has far too long took the position of its failing infrastructure and crime as an impeded quid pro quo. There’s job security in it for a few, but it’s a drag on the majority. Rebuild the former and be done with it. Kick the latter out and stop importing it. Otherwise, spare me the Beacon comparison.
-Single Family Homes…which is why the Montgomery Street project shouldn’t be restricted to two story townhouses. If you want to “view” the river, get your lazy arse up and go for a walk along River Road.
-Adopt a block, pretty please?…Give me a break. Put parking meters on the newly paved roads for the non-profits in “close proximity”. Leave the tax paying businesses out of the “program”.
-So RBG took a $2.3 hit and simply walked? okayyyyyyyy
