Bud Siegel replied to TC's discussion Mayor Casale's 2013 Budget in the group Public Discussion Forum
"As the cost of government keeps being pushed down the food chain (and yes this is basically the result of conservative, Republican ideology) -- from Federal to State to County to city to citizen, party lines disappear.  Whether one is a…"

Bud Siegel commented on Marko Guzijan's blog post The Beacon Centennial needs a logo!
"Thanks Marko.  I think that for a logo used by the City for civic purposes, some designers might gladly donate their services.  But if the logo is to be used by businesses and Main Street Merchants as well, as part of their centennial…"

Bud Siegel commented on pete nocerino's blog post Beacon Drug Problem
"So many of the different opinions here exist not because of divergent visions of Beacon’s future, or even its history, but because of the often contradictory views of what Beacon is now.  I’ve never seen so many different…"

Bud Siegel commented on pete nocerino's blog post Beacon Drug Problem
"The drug packets have been strewn around town for as long as I can remember.  Beacon has a drug problem.  Nothing new there.  That's why we have a methadone clinic across from Home Spun on Main.  That's why there…"

Bud Siegel commented on Denise Y. Crisci's blog post hey beaconites
"What some people want and need often fly in the face of commercial reality, at least as far as Beacon is concerned.  Beacon is not an upscale, professional community and Key Foods is a chain that services, thank goodness, poorer populations.…"

Bud Siegel commented on Ben Royce's blog post Introducing the watercolors of Timothy Delaney for the cause of the Beacon Line Project
"As always, your comment makes no sense to me, and I don't have a clue about what you talking about -- but, again, I hope my very simple suggestion can help you raise some money for your cause."

Bud Siegel commented on Ben Royce's blog post Introducing the watercolors of Timothy Delaney for the cause of the Beacon Line Project
"I think it might be easier to raise money for your cause in a more appropriate way.  I suggest you contact BACA or the Dutchess County Community Foundation about providing pass-through services.  That way people who find your project…"

Bud Siegel commented on Ben Royce's blog post Introducing the watercolors of Timothy Delaney for the cause of the Beacon Line Project
"I assume that by soliciting funds, Beaconline.org has401 (c) non-profit organization status and that donations are tax deductible. Or you are using another organization to pass-through funds.  In either case, if we buy a print to support your…"

Day After Election Analysis

1)  I’m struck by just how non-ideological our local elections are.  Across the nation, voters rejected rigid conservative agenda initiatives – repealing a law limiting union rights in Ohio, rejecting a crack-down in voting rights in Maine, and rejecting an anti-abortion measure in Mississippi.  Randy and others running on the Republican line won without any party ideological divisiveness as issues, thank goodness.  (And congratulations to the winners.)

2)  Despite the keen interest…

Newburgh, Number 1 Murder City in New York State with Poughkeepsie coming in 2nd.
