first_imgRegistration plan a ploy to boost DemsI believe efforts to institute Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) in New York are an attempt to cement a permanent Democrat majority.With the recent inclusion of online registration, it’s already easy enough to register to vote. Madigan has successfully pushed for expanded recreational trails, balanced growth and greater sustainability, as is evident by her direct management and oversight of the 8,000 solar panels on our city landfill, support of the greenbelt trail and downtown trail connector.She’s worked closely for seven years with our other Democratic office holders — Mayor Kelly and Commissioners Franck and Martin and former Commissioner of Public Safety Chris Mathiesen. Her good work continues with her recent announcement that the city’s reserves increased by another $1.2 million.Only one other person asked for the committee’s endorsement. She did so at the last minute, without even participating in our endorsement process (of which she was well aware, being a committee member herself). Unfortunately, after the committee rejected her request, she decided to mount a primary challenge to Commissioner Madigan.I hope you’ll vote for Michele Madigan in the Democratic primary on June 25 to return for her fifth term.Courtney DeLeonardisSaratoga Springs Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMany reasons to vote for MadiganThe Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee has voted to endorse Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan for re-election as the most qualified candidate.My reasons for supporting her are: Madigan has 7 years of experience handling the City’s finances; our property taxes haven’t been raised for seven years.The city’s bond ratings by Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s are high and have been raised during her tenure in office, which has saved taxpayers money by lowering the costs of borrowing.center_img Why is automatic registration needed? Simple — because New York Democrats have chosen to follow the California model by requiring people applying for an operator’s or fishing license to opt out if they don’t want to register to vote.Why not opt in with an affirmation (under penalty of law for perjury) that they swear to their New York state resident status?Once undocumented immigrants are granted the privilege of obtaining a driver’s license, I wonder how many will “forget” to check a little box to opt out [“Oops, sorry I missed that.”]They already found a way into our country illegally. So why not invade the electoral system as well? Democrats have kowtowed to illegal immigration for some time now.Here’s their opportunity to get their support at the ballot box. AVR sets up the system for voter fraud when driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants is passed. Will municipalities with large illegal populations and under Democratic control commit the resources to uncover anyone illegally on their voter rolls?They won’t want to know. They just want their votes, and they may get them.Jeff NuzzacoSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.

Also, they have voted to provide £125 million to Football League and National League teams to help with cash flow problems caused by the coronavirus outbreak. The League said in a statement on Friday that its clubs “unanimously agreed to consult their players regarding a combination of conditional reductions and deferrals amounting to 30 percent of total annual remuneration”. The Premier League also said it was “committing £20 million to support the National Health Service, communities, families and vulnerable groups during the COVID-19 pandemic. “This includes a direct financial contribution to the NHS and funds to enable clubs to refocus their efforts and develop significant outreach programmes to help communities, including those most in need.” The Premier League also said play would not resume, as once hoped, at the beginning of May and that the 2019/2020 season would only return when it is “safe and appropriate to do so”. The league has been in talks with the players’ union, the PFA, about wage reductions and deferrals but there was no immediate sign of a deal. Less than 24 hours after Health Minister Matt Hancock said players should take a pay cut and “play their part” in the national effort to tackle the pandemic, two moves also emerged from the players themselves. Manchester United captain Harry Maguire asked his teammates to donate 30 per cent of their salaries to local hospitals and was given backing by the squad. England defender Maguire was among the 20 Premier League captains who took part in a call on Thursday evening. The call was to discuss a collective response and donation with plans now expected to be developed. The Football League (EFL) consists of the 72 professional clubs in the three divisions below the Premier League. It said the cash the clubs would receive from the top flight includes solidarity payments, parachute payments and Academy Grants.
