We asked readers what they wish Bramson would discuss in his speech. Reader Joyce Furfero responded on The New Rochelle Daily Voice Facebook page , “I want to hear that (1) the City is cutting the Gordian knot with Good Profit Works and giving the Veterans the opportunity to develop the Armory, (2) the City has given Forest CIty Ratner the heave-ho and will look for a respectable, responsible developer for the "waterfront" property soon to be freed up by the removal of the City Yard, and (3) the City has fired Deborah Newborn and eliminated the useless position of Sustainability Coordinator!”
Reader Denise Pagano Ward said, “I'd like him to explain his responsibility for my real estate taxes doubling in the past 10 years. I'd like to know how many more "fees" he plans on imposing on City residents."
