It is during this time of year, we reflect on things and events past, and look to focus on how we can improve our lot during the calendar’s ‘€œnew beginning.” These New Year’s resolutions are often considered light conversational fare, but can take on great significance as part of a larger solution in our lives. GPS technology aside for the moment, good roadmaps can get us on a path to where we need to get to, both figuratively and literally. For those who believe we here in Rockland are at the edge of our own ‘fiscal cliff’ right now, we need a plan of action designed to get us back to being the great county we know we are.
Much like the post office, neither wind, nor rain nor a once in a hundred year hurricane will keep Tuesday’s election from being held. Rockland’s Commissioner of Elections Ann Marie Kelly says polling places will be ready to go on Tues Nov 6. Polling hours in New York State are 6a-9p.

David Carlucci’s campaign held a “street theater-style protest” event on Thursday 10/28 to in front of Rockland County Executive Scott Vanderhoef’s office today to draw attention to what they say is “pay to play” behavior by the Republican NYS Senate candidate.
Carlucci’s campaign has accused Vanderhoef of accepting over $9200 from companies that have current contracts with Rockland County “making them flat out illegal,” according to Carlucci.
“This was a silly publicity stunt orchestrated by the Albany Democratic operatives who are running David Carlucci’s campaign,” says Vanderhoef spokesperson Bill Madden.
