    Cleveland Inspirations feat. Laura Cowan and Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland

    in Women

    This is a show that you can not miss. Imagine subjecting yourself and your children to someone for assistance and spiritual reasons. Now imagine that person you trusted to take advantage of you, as well as hold you and your children hostage for 10 years. Now imagine being rescued, your oppressor being sent to prison for life, and you rise from your pain and began teaching others how to prevent the same situation happening to them or overcoming their pain if they have been through the same situation. This is just a piece of the story that our guest Laura Cowan went through. Tune in as she joins Mr. Yancey live in the studio to talk about her story, how she survived and overcame and how you can do the same. Then stay tuned for "What's Going On in Your Ward?" featuring Ward 5 Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland. She let you know about any upcoming events, developments and concerns. You can call in with your questions and comments at (914)338-0665.

    After the events across America including Florida, Missouri, and Ohio, police-community relations are almost stretched to its limits. Ohio Governor John Kasich , possible GOP 2016 Presidential Candidate, calls for a Task Force to address the widening schism between communities of color and law enforcement. In January 2015, Gov. Kasich asked Amy to be a part of his Task Force.

    Amy is joined on the Task Force by 17 others including: former Ohio Supreme Court justice Eva Stratton, Dr. Ronnie Dunn Cleveland State University associate professor, member of the NAACP Criminal Justice Committee, Rev. George Murry Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Youngstown, and Chief Michael J. Navarre, member of the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police.

    Amy Murray has an extensive history of political involvement and a passion for diving into the issues when it comes to making her city a better place to live and work. As past President of her Neighborhood Council, she worked closely with residents, business and the city to bring about positive change. As member of city council Amy has been committed to more robust job creation and making  a more “business-friendly” city.  Fiscal responsibility, holding our leaders accountable and keeping our neighborhoods safe are her key focus areas.

    010815 The Vince Anello Show-Open Mike

    in Politics

    Unfortunately, when it comes to governing our city, the blessing of casino revenue has caused some negative side effects. We are developing the habits of the stereotypical spoiled rich kid. When the kid goofs up his dad's money can smooth it over. Our city government is developing the same characteristics. Inefficiencies in some departments are smooth over with casino money. Poorly implemented efforts or contracts are propped up with casino money. Noise created by dissatisfaction within the workforce is muffled with casino money. Do overs, are done over with casino money.

    We will talk about the City Engineer position, the $500,000 of Casino money for temporary positions and the Sweet Team. As I've been saying for many years, including my time in office, a casino revenue spending policy is necessary. Legitimate, transparent governments have written policies to establish their responsibilities and the method for carrying out those responsibilities.

    Sanitation, recycling and clean neighborhoods is one of our latest fiasco's

    Employee Healthcare benefits is another issue. Healthcare is so expensive and complicated that the unions and the city formed a committee in 2006 to address healthcare issues separate from the negotiations of regular bargaining agreements. The city has failed to hold regular meetings to find ways of reducing cost.

    Another long standing pet peeve of mine is the Niagara Falls city charter.

    That effort was led by Councilwoman Barbara Geracitano and myself. The law department  has managed to stall that effort, even though the work was done 17 years ago.

    Let's make 2015 the year of change, change in attitude of our public officials, financial discipline, and a plan that is clear enough to where we can clearly understand where we are going
