This truly is an embarrassemnt to the Women who have been nominated as they all bring something GREAT to the city of Peekskill in many different ways. I would suggest the voting be in a different forum as this just creates unnecessary animosity. Instead of voters trying to see the good that these women do, they will have to decipher through all of this negative comments that has been posted first.

These type of polls are never a good idea. However, kudos to Pisani, Brown and Villanova for such a strong showing after being added late!

Most of us work hard for a living. We save. We take out a loan and buy a house for the good of our family. Then someone like Mary Foster comes along and steals our house by eminent domain. The fact that she ran for office opposing eminent domain but now is using it is the height of hypocrisy. Mary Foster should be honored as the biggest, most distinguished hypocrite in the County.
