the lowdown: vote down issue 14, and reduce taxes

MORE GLIB LIES FROM PORT AUTHORITY - SO VOTE NO ON ISSUE 14 REALNEO for all -- Our friend Jeff Buster doesn't mince words. The Port Authority does. See what I mean at

Personally, I'm not comfortable with what I see as conflicts of interest, with John Carney, a real-estate developer, being on a public board that decides land use and has dealings in the capital markets. There is the perception that the Port Authority is out of control and overstepping its bounds, and I can't see why we should assist them in their self-dealing efforts any further. The public-private money distinction is just getting too blurry, and it's time to begin to cut off their funds. A vote against this renewal is just a start.

Also, I think the Port Authority needs to come up with a Conflict of Interest Policy and lay it all out on the table, so far as what is ethical conduct, and what isn't.
