New Year = new resolutions to stay informed

Great to see so many concerned residents at last night’s New Windsor Planning Board Meeting. We have to take interest in what affects our communities. Agenda included continued discussions on proposed development of Stewart Hill Industrial Park Site Plan on Toleman Rd & possible Biohitech, waste to fuel plant, at Stewart.

Want to say THANK YOU

to all the election workers. poll watchers,
to the citizens and organizations that are offering free rides to the polls,
to anyone and everyone working to ensure that people’s votes aren’t suppressed,
to all the candidates taking a chance, sharing your messages, and most importantly for giving us choices!
MAKE SURE TO VOTE TODAY!
(and bring some snacks or refreshments to the people working the polls. They’re going to have a loooong day)
And if you think you can help build a better tomorrow, start planning now. You have almost a year until next election day and 6+ months to the school board elections. What will you stand for? Look up available seats in your area. If you don’t chose to run, how will you support your local candidates? Think and organize tomorrow!

So what has history taught us??

Tomorrow is the big day in New York for voters.
This Smithsonian article on the Know-Nothing Party provides a good history of our two-party system and a great overview of third parties in our nation. Looking back at history is a great way to better understand current events. Here’s an excerpt to pique your interest:
From 1820 to 1845, anywhere from 10,000 to 1,000,000 immigrants entered the U.S. each year. Then, as a consequence of economic instability in Germany and a potato famine in Ireland, those figures turned from a trickle into a tsunami. Between 1845 and 1854, 2.9 million immigrants poured into the country, and many of them were of Catholic faith. Suddenly, more than half the residents of New York City were born abroad, and Irish immigrants comprised 70% of charity recipients. As cultures clashed, fear exploded and conspiracies abounded. Posters around Boston proclaimed, “All Catholics and all persons who favor the Catholic Church are…vile imposters, liars, villains, and cowardly cutthroats.”
