Property Taxes Dominate County Exec Race

bramson v astorino

Noam Bramson, a Democrat, the mayor of New Rochelle is challenging incumbent Republican Rob Astorino in the race for Westchester County Executive. The New York Times’ Joe Berger on the issues in that race:

In Westchester, a county of both horse farms and homeless shelters, property taxes, not surprisingly, are at the heart of the race for county executive. Despite the county’s mounting ethnic diversity and welter of urban problems, Westchester is mostly about owning a house in the suburbs, even if property taxes there are higher than in any other county in the United States  more

If any one thinks Noam’s done a good job handling New Rochelle’s finances, I got a bridge for you. Bramson’s delustional to think he’ll be able to handle the counties finances when he’s led New Rochelle to the brink with one bad budget after another filled with one shot gimmicks that leave the city more vulnerable the next year. Now Bramson wants to borrow $30 million to move its city yard, but he’s got no plans on how to pay the $2 million annual loan payments other than tax increases. And I suppose those payments will be exempt from the tax cap.
Total BS and no family in Westchester County would run their households in such a manner.
