Downtown residents of Buffalo are feeling pushed-out more and more over the past few years, and most of this has to do with an initiative launched years ago that has little or nothing to do with them, but affects where they currently live and the future of Buffalo, NY.
What is taking place stands to be part of Buffalo's version of Gentrification called UB 2020 that is eating away at the rights of the immediate black community affecting it-also known as the Fruit Belt-and the latest issue regarding it is the practice of suburban employees who work downtown taking parking spaces in front of homes of residents. A bill that would create a parking permit system is currently having trouble going through.
Chris will once again interview Veronica Nichols who has been fighting for the residents of the Fruit Belt (where she resides) and nearby McCarley Gardens for the past several years.
According to a report by WGRZ TV: "The proposal would allow a program to be established along the most heavily impacted streets, including sections of Maple, Mulberry, Locust, Carlton and High streets. Residents would be issued permits to park and 20 percent of the spaces would still be available for non-residential parking.
Two On Your Side has obtained a document showing that CSEA does not support a permit program because employees have limited places to park.
Currently, 3,100 employees work at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and only 1,600 spaces are available. In the next five years, 17,000 people are expected to work at the medical campus."
The “featured” BlogTalkRadio program “Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris” opens the Monday, June 30, 2014th broadcast day at 10:00 a.m. EDT reviewing the issues and concerns CSEA Unit 9169's 53 members are foxed to accept. What are the issues, who are the 53? Why is Mayor Mike Spano's conduct seemingly no fair? Are conflicts of interest being exposed? Why are Yonkersites silent? Is this an important concern for those other than just the 53? Has Mayor Mike Spano crossed the line? Has he diminished his political prospects? Why does Mayor Mike Spano promise that which he does not deliver? Has he lost his backbone or does he want to do the right thing and is thereafter told by "handlers" that he cannot? Who is the Mayor of Yonkers? We'll pivot onto the latest international news thereafter to conclude our broadcast day. If we a re lucky, we will find White Plains CitizeNet Reporter Publisher / Editor John Bailey joining us this morning. Her is unlikely to join us during the opening minutes due to other responsibilities to which he must attend. Hezi Aris is your host today.

The “featured” BlogTalkRadio program "Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris” opens the Friday, June 27, 2014th broadcast day at 10:00 a.m. EDT with a discussion of film with International Film Critic and respected Jurist Sherif Awad.
At 11:00 a.m. we welcome our guest, CSEA President Lionel Turner, to discuss some of the before unknown issues that have belatedly become evident with respect to the merger of approximately 60 Yonkers Board of Education (YBoE) personnel. The transfer of personnel is part of the consolidation effort by Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano and a byproduct of his making the once independent YBoE a Department of Yonkers City Hall on July 1, 2014. The employees must decide by June 30, 2014, to agree to their job placement within Yonkers City Hall which some see as a betrayal by Mayor Mike Spano of his promise and word to them, their loss of benefits, seniority, pay scale, medical benefits, etc. We will learn if the conduct from Yonkers City Hall is a betrayal, as some suggest, and if / whether this conduct is legal or ethical.

I am offering my opinion on the Westchester County Budget that alledgedly was passed by the Board Of Legislature and about half of the board not in attendance, Additionally, I am concerned about the Aproxamately 99 or so CSEA Positions that will be cut from the Westchester County Budget. Why Viginia Perez Vote the direction which seemed to contardict what her Constituents would have wanted her to vote. I would like to hear from anyone with insite on different sides of the aisle.... Rob Astorino has approved the budget and Christmas will affect a good amount of not only to the County CSEA Workers but also their families.
I will also comment on some current events.....
