The legislation seems to encourage layoffs so that cities get a free ride for a few years. Perhaps with the rehires, White Plains might be able to keep the 3rd ladder company in service. White Plains will be tested with a major high rise fire one day. Be interesting to see the results.
A resident was assaulted for voicing his opinion by an enraged Town Commissioner. Watch the video. The Greenburgh Town Board would have suspended a police officer for the same violent action as a prudent measure. Yet, the Board took no action for some unexplained reason.The failure to act is a disgrace and sends the message that violence is acceptable.
fd75 replied to Bnechis's topic in Westchester CountyThis incident and related video shows clearly that Bob Bernstein was the innocent victim of a physical attack by an enraged Commission member. He was attacked for disagreeing with and pointing out errors committed by the attacker. Serious questions have been raised regarding the objective independent status of the Commission which appears to have reached its conclusions a long time ago. This example of blatant politics is a very bad sign for the fire service.
