I suspect you're being hyperbolic, but none of the candidates live with Assembly member Morelle, and of the candidates, only one is currently a Morelle staffer.
Thanks for your comments. I fixed the post so it includes the correct info for the proposed raise.
That's sort of correct, but applies only to gubernatorial elections. So in the next gubernatorial election, which is in 2014, the Independence Party needs to receive at least 50,000 votes on its line, for its candidate, in order to keep its official recognition by the state. And the same can be said for any New York political party.
In other words, the number of votes the Independence Party receives in the mayoral election won't determine whether it stays on the ballot.
Faith Temple is currently located on Elmwood Avenue in Brighton. They bought the property next to Buckland Park with the intention of building a new sanctuary, school, and senior housing. But that hasn't been built yet and church officials plan to pursue a different approach. That's why they want to sell the land.
The appointments do need to be confirmed by the Legislature, but they'll probably be working in an interim capacity prior to that. From what I've seen over the years, that's fairly routine, and not just in Monroe County.
I just want to clarify that it's Scott Congel, not Robert Congel, who owns and is developing Medley Centre. Robert Congel is developing Destiny USA in Syracuse. Scott Congel is Robert's son.
A quick search of the state Board of Elections' campaign finance database shows no contributions from Scott Congel to Cuomo in 2012. It shows Robert Congel made a single $25,000 contribution to Cuomo's 2014 re-election committee.
I just checked with a Costello representative and he tells me that the number on the website was wrong. Hope that's helpful.
