Anne Chin Castellon Says...

    

"As a Chinese-American, I believe working hard--and smart--helps you achieve your dreams. I don't believe in handouts or getting something for nothing; because, behind that, there is a hidden agenda that eventually is an exchange on your freedom. Government doesn't make me! My decision, my hard work, and my determination is what makes me. So, Hillary Clinton said,  'Government makes jobs'? Really?!  No! Dreams, hard work and determination--without Government inference is what creates jobs.

I vote for John because he believes in freedom and in people.

Thank you"

Gov. Andrew Cuomo Provides A Rationale & A Motto For My Campaign:

 

 

 

  •  

By 2015, 35 percent of local-government budgets will be consumed by pension costs, up from 3 percent in 2001, Cuomo said today. "This year is about pension reform ... We need to change the relationship with the special interests because we can’t afford to pay the pension because the taxpayers are broke!" Cuomo put the pension changes into his budget proposal for the fiscal year that begins April 1. FULL ARTICLE AT BLOOMBERG.COM

Who is John K. Wilson?

I have no interest in a political career. I got involved in politics to challenge a Politician--not to become one.Like so many of my neighbors, I am angry at the foolish antics of the politicians in Albany. The poster child for lawmakers who need to be sent home is my representative, Catherine Nolan.... Read more

Liking Cathy Too Much

       Earlier this year, a neighbor asked if I were going to run, again, against Catherine Nolan for the NY State Assembly, District 37 seat. When I answered, "yes", she said, "That's gonna be tough for you; because so many people like her."

   It's true: many adore her. She's feisty, funny, loved by her employees, is procedurally adept, and is a Mom. What's not to like? If you are one of the chosen who has received a check, distributed by Cathy, but, paid for by your neighbors, you probably like her even more than most. Often, when people say how wonderful a legislator is, they are really revealing that they've sold their vote for whatever amount was granted to their pet project by that particular pol. A Tax-And-Spend Democrat, Cathy has spent her career serving her two true constituencies: the leadership of the United Federation of Teachers, and Assembly Speaker, Sheldon Silver.

   The people of Queens, who struggle with America's 5th highest cost of living, pay the highest taxes in the nation. Though she has served 30 years and has seniority greater than all but 3 members of a body of 150, has she ever exerted any leadership in speaking out for lowering those taxes for people and businesses--freeing capital and creating jobs--helping to ameliorate that cost of living? It is unlikely that she would; as, she has needed those public dollars, over the years, to dole out "member items" and "discretionary funding" at an excessive rate in what amounts to a neat little vote buying scheme.  

   She engages in wealth re-distributive class warfare via her support of the so-called "Millionaire's Tax".  She burdens businesses with nuisance regulations. For these and many other reasons, she earned a negative rating in job creation from NY's Business Council in 2010 (-15 out of 100). In fairness, in 2012, her score improved to 42 out of 100; but, appropriate to the Education Chair of the Assembly, that would still result in a "letter grade" of "F".

   She has done nothing to aid the 53,000 minority and low income children who are on a waiting list to get into a Charter School. They wait on lists because their parents understand that Charters (which are public schools that consistently score greater academic success--for less public money) are the best chance those youngsters have for a better future. Charters embarrass the UFT, which funds Cathy's campaigns. She actually allows the UFT's lawyers to dictate policy to her. Isn't she supposed to be our representative?

 

 

 

 

   So many things NY's legislators do would lead to an indictment if done in private life; but, in Government, become "perks" of the job. Shelly Silver rewards Cathy for her loyalty to him with the Education Chairship (which includes a $10,000.00 bump in yearly salary); and, Cathy morphs into a symbiotic relationship with the UFT. There are no worries about "conflict of interest" or "appearances of impropriety" because the beneficiaries make the laws. However, Shelly is finally under investigation for trying to make Vito Lopez's "sex abuse problems" disappear by spreading around some public funds on the sly. He has admitted to the pay out; perhaps soon he'll be on his way out.

   Cathy will tell you she's a Democrat because she wants to "help people." Is she helping taxpayers? Business owners? Consumers? School kids? Parents? I understand "liking Cathy"; but, voting for her on that basis alone might violate your values and self-interests…unless you are one of the relative few who've received a check paid for by the many.

  So, why do the rest of us vote for her?

Questions for Catherine Nolan As We Close In On Election Day

 

 

If you happen to see Catherine Nolan out and about, please ask her the following questions (and…please…get her answers on video!); but, watch out! She won't be pleased. On Election Day 2012, I asked her two questions that any constituent might ask; and, she accused me of "harassment." (See more about that here: www.johnkwilson4ny.com/template_permalink.asp     )

 

QUESTION #1:

   "Given that 53,000 Minority, low-income children are on a waiting list to land a coveted place in the limited number of Charter Schools, in your opposition to Charters--and their expansion--are you "discounting" the hopes and dreams of these Minority families as they seek a better future for their children?"

 

QUESTION #2:

"In aligning yourself politically with the leadership of the UFT--which both opposes Charters and provides you with significant financial and other support--are you feathering your nest at the expense of the desires of tens of thousands of Minority parents who are attempting to 'vote with their feet' by choosing Charters for their children?"

 

QUESTION #3:

"Charters compete. Students compete. Shouldn't we embrace competition--academic, political, and economic--to arrive at the very best possibilities in an effort to enhance our community and our lives?"

  

   Sheldon Silver is the Speaker of the NY State Assembly; and, he holds absolute power over this state--whoever may reside in the Governor's Mansion. In January 2015, 150 people (the Members of the Assembly, which includes Cathy) will vote on whether or not to retain Silver as Speaker of the Assembly. Shelly was forced to admit in 2012 that he used public money to sweep Vito Lopez's sex abuse problems under the rug. Years ago, he sought to conceal the acts of another sexual predator: his own legal counsel. Shelly routinely holds up legislation which would benefit NYers until his own personal power is enhanced. If he were not the Speaker, democracy might actually break out in Albany.

 

QUESTION #4:

"Do you still slavishly support Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver at the expense of reason, morality, democratic principles, and the people who actually live in the District you represent in Albany?"
