THE DEBATE THAT WASN'T
August 17, 2017     

UPDATED

SULLIVAN FOR ALBANY MAYOR 

November 7   CONSERVATIVE ROW C

THE DEBATE THAT WASN'T

WNYT TV and WAMC Radio provided the
three Democratic Primary candidates an
opportunity to communicate their messages
to Democrats who will vote in the September
12 Primary.

There was no debate. Nor, did the 3 candidates
present clear , concise answers to the questions
from the forum moderators.

Why did Commisso and McLaughlin fail to
challenge Sheehan to present her balanced
2018 budget before the September 12 primary
so that voters will be spared an October Surprise?

Answer. Sheehan does not have a balanced
2018 City budget. Nor, do Commisso or McLaughlin.

All three are long time city elected officials who
are responsible for the City of Albany's fiscal
insolvency.

All three, by supporting Albany as a Sanctuary
City, are assuring that Albany is doomed to fiscal
insolvency because of the loss of 7 million dollars
or more, of annual federal aid as a result.

Furthermore, all three have failed to meet with
Governor Cuomo and convince him that having
the State make the annual 15 million dollar PILOT
(payment in lieu of taxes) to the City for the
Harriman State Office Campus is in the best
interests of Albany City property tax payers
as well as his own self interest.

Do the arithmetic. 7+ million and 15 million equals
22+ million = a balanced 2018 City budget.

Finally, neither Commisso nor McLaughlin
challenged Sheehan to place a moratorium on
her Rezone Albany zoning changes allowing
mixed use developments in the single family
residential neighborhoods which will destroy
neighborhood residential integrity, quality of
life, home values and property base in those
neighborhoods which pay the lion's share of
property taxes that support City schools and
City services. 

In the short run, Sheehan and her developer
allies may reap an monetary windfall. However
Rezone Albany assures that Albany will be on

the fast track to becoming Detroit on the Hudson.

ISLAM, PROGRESSIVE POLITICIANS
ALLIES IN THE FUNDAMENTAL
TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA
(excerpts of original post May 25, 2010)

Both seek to fundamentally (radically)
transform America. Both are out to
destroy America as we know and love it.

Andrew McCarthy says two things stand
in their way: (1) Our Constitution and
(2) Our concept of Liberty.
McCarthy presents a most lucid analysis 
of the relationship between Islamists and
American progressives who dominate
government at the federal state 
and local levels.

McCarthy's book "The Grand Jihad"
should be required reading for every 
true American Patriot:
http://www.uncoverage.net/2010/05/the-grand-jihad-by-andrew-mccarthy/


We have been attacked, and invaded
by a foe that is conducting a Jihad, both
by violent and stealth means. Either way
the end result is destruction our
Constitutional Republic and our
loss of individual liberty.

American progressive politicians, and
their supporters, are aiding and abetting 
this Jihad whether by intent, or through
ignorance. They  must be driven from
public office.


Liberty is the essence of the Declaration
of Independence, and our Constitution.

Security, national defense,
emergency/disaster preparedness are the
priorities.

We are not safe. We are not ready.

Far too many Americans do
not comprehend what is at stake.
That includes the mainstream media
 who shill for the "progressive" pols.

They fail to realize that when the ship 
goes down, all will go down with it.

DIVERSITY WITHOUT
ALLEGIANCE DESTROYS
A NATION

DIVERSITY WITHOUT
ALLEGIANCE DESTROYS
A NATION

Diversity is glorified by many
politicians in America today
who have the agenda of
fundamentally transforming
America. 

 http://americanactionnews.com/articles/gop-bill-blocks-obama-plan-to-water-down-pledge-taken-by-new-u-s-citizens

Americans should value and
honor their heritages and take
pride in their ancestors.

Far too many modern day
immigrants, legal and illegal
harbor no love for America
 and do not wish to assimilate.

Worse still, many want to
impose their laws, customs
and languages on us.

Some come here with the
aim of destroying America.

Diversity without allegiance
to America will ultimately
destroy our Nation.

Secure our borders, now!

Require all illegals to
register as a first step
to dealing with the problem
of tens of millions of illegals
who have unlawfully invaded
our Nation.

Deport all illegals in our
prisons and jails and those
that those that commit crimes
punishable by incarceration.

Reform our Immigration
Law. Persons from parts of
the world that harbor deep
hatred of America and who
do not aim to assimilate 
peacefully into our way
of life, and who do not
intend to pay allegiance
to America, should not be
accepted as immigrants.

The  same goes for student
visas. Far too many come
here pretending to be students
and become illegal residents.
Many fit the profile of those
who want to destroy America.
No student visas for them!

Unsecured borders and
unrestricted immigration 
of unskilled, uneducated
multitudes who do not
share our culture and 
language, including many
who are intent on doing
us harm, is to commit
national Hari Kari.

Time for politicians to
uphold their oaths of office.

Uphold their oaths to
safeguard our Constitutional
Republic, our way of life
and our language.

SHEEHAN VOTE SPLIT
50 - 50

Sheehan 50 percent. Sheehan Light
20 percent. Sheehan Extra Light 13
percent.

17 percent undecided?

59 percent of  poll sample say City
of Albany is on right track? To what?

To becoming Detroit on the Hudson?

CLEAN ENERGY
NOT FOR ALBANY?

The City of Albany is fiscally insolvent.

The Sheehan administration missed the
boat on getting a casino in Albany.

Now it appears that, with National Grid
raising electric and gas rates next year
the Sheehan administration is once again
missing the boat.

The 765 kv hydro line will run through
Albany from Quebec to NYC.

 http://www.yourfamilyenergy.com/new-york-psc-approves-1000-mw-quebec-ny-city-power-line#.WZhYyFEpDcs

Why is Albany not negotiating with the
power company to tap into that low cost
source of power  to benefit local residents
spur economic development and jobs for
 the local economy?

It appears that Mayor Sheehan prefers
to beg, like the pan handlers that are to
be seen everywhere on Albany streets and
at exit ramps of highways and shopping
malls?

A new theme song for Albany?......

A welcoming City..........

ISSUES MATTER MORE 
THAN MONEY TO VOTERS

Issues matter more than money to
voters in political  elections. That is
if candidates have clear stands on
issues.

If Amanda and other media spent
more time communicating where
candidates stand on vital issues in
the 2017 elections readers and voters
would be better served

 http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/A-crash-course-on-campaign-finance-for-Albany-s-11745949.php

An informed electorate  making wise
choices of candidates who articulate
clear stands on issues is what elections
should be about! 

If the media would do their jobs
money would not matter.

Unless the objective is to elect the
candidates that money can buy?

ALBANY CITY CONSERVATIVES
OPEN PRIMARY BALLOT FOR
CITY COURT JUDGE/WARD RACES
.


Conservative Mayoral candidate, and
City Conservative Leader, Joe Sullivan
has filed Opportunity to Ballot (OTB)
petitions for the September 12 Primary
for City Court Judge (3 seats)  and
Common Council in Wards 1, 8,11, 12
14 and 15.

In addition, John Mahoney( enrolled
Conservative ,Ward 9) and Tim Looker 
enrolled Republican, Ward 13) will appear
on the November 7 General Election
ballot, along with the candidates who
are selected in the  September 12
Conservative Primary for the 3 City
Court seats and Council seats in Wards
1,8,11,12,14, and 15.

Candidates need not be enrolled in 
any political party. However, only
enrolled  City Conservative Party 
Members may vote in the September
12 Conservative Primary. Polls open
Noon - 9 PM.

Fiscal insolvency, increased crime
failing schools, a growing dependent
population and lack of jobs are the
legacy of one party control of City
government by self- identified
"progressives" who have high jacked
City schools and City government as
well as the once proud Democratic
Party.

Albany City government needs
diversity and a return to limited
government grounded in the
Constitution and traditional American
values.

City Court Judge candidates who
will uphold the law and Constitution
in particular the Second Amendment
Rights of law abiding citizens to bear
arms are welcome to compete for the
Conservative Party line.

This includes the 7 known candidates
as well as any resident of the City who
is a qualified attorney.

http://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Seven-seeking-City-Court-judgeships-in-Albany-11303631.php  

Common Council candidates who 
will truly represent the needs and
wishes of those ward residents who
elect them, are invited to seek the
Conservative ballot line in Wards
1, 8, 11, 12, 14 and 15.

Interested candidates may contact
me or directly seek the votes of
enrolled City of Albany Conservative
Party Members  city wide, or in the
particular wards, based on which
public office they seek.

SUPPORT RESOLUTION DECLARING
A MORATORIUM ON REZONE ALBANY 

UPDATE: The Council refused to vote
on this Resolution.

When? 7 PM Albany Common Council
Chamber 2d floor City Hall.  July 3, 2017

will introduce the following Resolution for
a vote of approval from the full 15 member
Albany Common Council at their July 3rd

This will destroy the neighborhood residential
integrity, quality of life, home values and City
property tax base in these single family 
residential neighborhoods, which pay the lion's 
share of property taxes which support
City schools and City government services.

A foolish move for a City on the brink of
fiscal insolvency.

All City residents will ultimately be adversely
impacted by the outcome.

said Rezone Albany Plan/Ordinance/Map, nor by the Mayor and Common Council
who enacted it, nor by the the citizen voters of Albany who must live with the
unintended consequences of what is essentially a Development stimulus plan

analyzed and understood by the Mayor, Common Council Members and citizen
voters of the City of Albany. it is imperative that said moratorium be declared

TWO STRIKES

The count against Kathy Sheehan
and the  Albany Common  Council 
in the 2017 Albany City elections is
2 strikes.

Strike 1 was declaring Albany a
sanctuary city. Sheehan and the
Common Council are law breakers
who have violated their oaths of
office, compromised the security
and safety of Albany residents
and made Albany a target for
terror attacks.

Strike 2 was ramming through
repeal of the existing Albany
City Zoning Code and replacing
it with the Rezone Albany zoning
code and official map, without
the members of the Common
Council, and City voters having
a clear understanding of the
consequences of Rezone Albany
on neighborhood residential
integrity and quality of life,
home values, the City property tax
base in the formerly owned
R 1B single family residential
zoning districts in Wards 4, 8,9,12
13,14 and 15, which pay the lion's
share of property taxes that support
City schools and City government
services.

 http://alloveralbany.com/archive/2017/05/16/rezone-albany-approved

Enactment of Rezone Albany puts
Albany on the fast track to becomong
Detroit on the  Hudson.

Petitioning to qualify candidates
for the September 12 party primary
ballots and November 7 General
Election begins June 7 and continues
through early July.

Do not sign candidate designating
petitions for Sheehan and Members
of the Common Council who supported
Albany being a sanctuary city and
replacing the existing City of Albany
Zoning Code/Official Map with the
Rezone Albant Zoning Code/Official
Map, which is effective June 1, 2017.

Three Common Council Members
voted  No on Rezone Albany.
Robinson (Ward 5) Krasher (W11)
and Commisso (W15). For this they
have earned your signatures to get
them on the ballot for the 2017 City
elections.

Challengers for  election to Common
Council from Wards 1, 2, 3, 4,6,7,8
9, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15, and Common
Council President, who will vote
to Repeal Sanctuary City status and
Rezone Albany  merit your signatures
on their candidate designating petitions.

Meanwhile, voters and candidates
should take the time to read, analyze
and understand  Rezone Albany and
it's consequences for their neighborhoods
wards and the City as a whole.

CHURCHILL SPOT ON

Albany Times Union article by
Chris Church is spot on, one
of his best:

 http://www.timesunion.com/tuplus-local/article/Churchill-Asking-questions-as-Albany-thwarts-11119905.php

The 5 members of the Albany 
Common Council Planning
Committee should vote to
Table  Ordinance 26.31.17
Rezone Albany and hold
the bill in Committee until
a new Mayor and Common
Council takes office in
January 2018.

The Common Council Planning
Committee will meet to reconsider
action on Rezone Albany, May
10.

Committee Chair Dan Herring
sponsor of the ordinance should
strike the enacting clause of the
Rezone Albany Zoning Ordinance
and Official Map.

Chairman Herring has announced
that he is not seeking reelection.

Do the honorable thing Dan.
You hold the fate of homeowners
neighborhood residential integrity
and quality of life, home values
the City property tax base and
support for City schools/City
government services 

The implications of Rezone Albany
need to be thoroughly analyzed
understood and debated by voters
and candidates alike before the
party primaries occur in September
and the November 7 General Election.

To do otherwise will doom the
City of Albany to fiscal insolvency
resulting in the City of Albany
becoming Detroit on the Hudson.

MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY_SOS

May 1 The Albany Common Council
may vote repeal the existing Albany
City Zoning Code and replace it with
Mayor Sheehan's Rezone Albany
Zoning Code/Official Map.

Enactment of the Rezone Albany
Code/Map  will allow mixed uses
currently not permitted in the
R 1B Single family residential
districts,

Under the existing zoning Code
only two uses are permitted in
R 1B zoning districts: single family
dwellings and Houses of Worship.

See existing Albany City Zoning
Official Map:

 http://www.albanyny.gov/_files/City%20Zoning%20Map.pdf

The R 1B single family residential
districts pay the lion's share of property
taxes that support city schools and
city government services.

Enactment of the Rezone Albany 
Code/Map will  result in a loss of
neighborhood residential integrity
and quality of life. Home values
will fall negatively impacting the
city property tax base, and, in turn
support for city schools/city government
services.

Not a wise move for an insolvent
city. The 12.5 million dollar bail out
to fill the hole in the 2017 City budget
will be released in increments rather
than a lump sum. One political misstep
by the Mayor could result in the City
losing this bailout.

There will be no further spin ups of
state payments in lieu of taxes to the
City of Albany

The Mayor and Common Council
have declared Albany to be a Sanctuary
City which will result in loss of millions
of dollars of federal aid to the city.

The City is preparing to close the
landfill and establish a waste transfer
station there. This will result in a loss
of 15 million dollars annual revenue.
Where will the trash be transferred
to? The Moon?

Repeal of the existing Albany Zoning
Code and replacing it with the Rezone
Albany Code/Map will doom Albany
to becoming Detroit on the Hudson.

And, it may result in the Mayor and
Common Council Members not being
reelected in the November 7, 2017
General Election.

The Common Council Members would
be wise to table Rezone Albany Code/Map
and retain the existing Albany City Zoning
Code until voters are fully aware of how
the proposal will adversely impact their
neighborhoods, home values, the City
property tax base, support for City schools
and City services, as well as efforts to
restore fiscal solvency to the City of
Albany.

Sullivan's blogs are read locally, nationally
and world wide.

Sullivan  holds degrees in Geography
from the University of Wisconsin, Madison
( BS , attended on the Korean GI Bill and
Tuition scholarships), and the University
of Minnesota, Minneapolis ( MA attended
on a National Fellowship).

Geography is the study of the interrelation-
ships of humans and their environments
within frameworks of place and time.

The major issues in the 2017 City elections
include:

1. Restoring the City of Albany to fiscal
solvency, and

2. Security / public safety

Sullivan says that restoring the City of
Albany to fiscal solvency requires:

a) Tabling  Rezone Albany for the
remainder of 2017.  The 5 member 
Common Council  Planning, Economic 
Development and Land Use Committee
can accomplish this by at least 3 of the 5
committee members voting to table and
not report the proposed Rezone Albany 
Ordinance and Map.

The names, bios and contact information 
for the committee are available here:

 http://www.albanyny.org/Government/CityOfficials/CommonCouncil/CommitteeAssignments.aspx

Call/write each asking that
they vote to table and hold in
committee for the remainder of
2017 -  The Rezone Albany
proposed ordinance No. 26.31.17.

DO THIS NOW!


It is vital that City voters, particularly
in the current R 1B single family residential
districts  (Wards 4, 8,9,12,13,14 and 15)
fully understand how Rezone Albany
will impact their neighborhood residential
integrity and quality of life, home values
and the City property tax base that supports
City schools and City government services.

The candidates for  Mayor, Common Council
President, Treasurer and Auditor, citywide
and 15 Common Council Ward seats  should
support tabling Rezone Albany for the remainder
of 2017 and should declare whether or not
they support retaining the existing R 1B
single family residential  zoning districts/ maps
definitions, permitted uses, provisions and
procedures.

Voters should inquire  where the candidates
stand on this question when asked to sign
candidate designating petitions in June and
vote in the September party primaries and
November General Election.

b) The Mayor and Common Council must
rescind Sanctuary City policies, honor their
oaths of office and uphold U S Immigration
Law.  Failure to do so will result in Albany
losing millions of dollars in federal aid.

c) Sullivan proposes that the City schools
be consolidated with City government, one
tax roll established to fund both, the school
board abolished, a return to K-8 neighborhood
schools, the Mayor and Common Council
be held responsible and accountable for
the operation/performance of City schools.

No more school referenda/budget votes
held by the school board/district in
January or May.

To accomplish this, the Common Council
must send a Home Rule Message to the
State Legislature and the Senate-Assembly
Members who represent the City of Albany
must sponsor and promote the required
legislation to  amend State Education Law.

Ideally,  the above three issues should appear
on the November General election ballot as
propositions to be voted upon by City voters.

However, since we know that the powers
that be,  will not place these propositions on
the ballot, a vote for Sullivan in November
will afford City voters the opportunity to
voice their support for, or opposition to, each.

2. Security and public safety are essential
for all citizens of Albany.

Sullivan advocates ending a national search
for police chief ( as well as for Superintendent
of schools). We have capable, qualified, local
professionals to these jobs.

The Mayor should not micro manage the police.
Take the handcuffs off the police and let them
do their job of upholding law and order and
public safety. Zero tolerance for gangs, gun
violence and related crimes

Speed limits and all vehicle and traffic laws
are to be strictly enforced, particularly on
City residential streets.

Citizens should be trained/prepared in emergency
disaster preparedness.

In the final analysis, government can't save
us. We the people,  must save ourselves and
save our government from itself.

We elect government office holders to serve
not rule us or control every aspect of our lives.

ALBANY. DETROIT
ON THE HUDSON?

The 2017 Albany City
elections will determine
if Albany becomes Detroit
on The Hudson.

Four years of the Sheehan
administration have resulted
in  fiscal insolvency for the
City of Albany.
