So I guess the general opinion was correct the public would soon forget about the cronie appointment of Frankie Sparaco to a phony $75,000 a year no show job. I guess the Clarkstown voter gets what they deserve!!

Should the police tell the residents of nanuet no cop is available because he is assigned to just one road, or should the risk the anger of watchdog when they put a cop there on overtime? I think it has been made perfectly clear that the CPD has paid more attention to Newport Drive than perhaps any street in the town.

If we had more cops public safety would be increased everywhere including Newport but we had to cut back on the number of costs because oftbe excessive and outrageous union demands and Gromack caved again. BTW the police chief never explained his stance that there was no excessive speeding on Newport, only a lot of cars. They buried his statement somewhere.

Intheknow maybe correct, he has inside information. Perhaps in a Freudian Slip, he was tellegraphing that the cops were over patrolling Newport at the time the 20 cars were destroyed in Nanuet, a still unsolved crime, soon to be another cold case. Hmmmm., another casualty of the police budget.
