03/29/10 Where The Hell Is The Westmore News? The Journal News Reports: Rogowsky Won’t Run, But He’s Not Done

Digital Dinosaur And Westmore Snooze Publisher Richard " My Daddy Gave Me This Newspaper After He Forgot To Pay Over 100 Property Tax Bills" Abel Just Can't Seem To Get Things Up, As The Journal News Scoops Him Yet Again.

The Journal News Reports:

A longtime Democratic lawmaker is saying sayonara to politics — or at least the Westchester County Board of Legislators.

After 13 years, Legislator Marty Rogowsky, the county board’s former majority leader, says he’s not running for re-election.

“I’ve done the major things I’ve come here to do,” Rogowsky told The Journal News today, a day after making the announcement at a county board meeting. “I’m certainly ready to retire as a county legislator … It’s not getting any easier, being in government. It’s not as much fun.”

Rogowsky, 62, who represents Harrison, Port Chester and Rye Brook, said though he doesn’t believe in term limits — he even voted against a board measure on it — his internal “alarm has gone off.”....

....His announcement comes at an interesting time as the board’s Democratic majority — led by Chairman Ken Jenkins — has quarrelled often with County Executive Rob Astorino and his Republican administration.

Rogowsky, the lone dissenting vote on the 17-member board regarding the county’s $1.8 billion budget, has at times been caught in the middle of those scuffles....

....“The more I see what’s going on with the back-and-fourth, it gets you to thinking, maybe there’s another way to do this.”

Rogowsky, who supported a charter revision commission that will look at how the government provides services, said he’s seen many models that work elsewhere.

He’s held roles New York State Association of Counties, and served as chairperson of the Energy Committee of the National Association of Counties.

Minority Leader Jim Maisano, R-New Rochelle, said he was surprised by the announcement and would miss Rogowsky’s independent ways.

“It’s certainly a loss for the Board of Legislators because Marty is a very thoughtful, independent Democrat who brought a lot of experience to the issues of Westchester,” Maisano said. “Marty became a very independent maverick on the board.”.....

....he will serve out the remainder of his term that expires in December.

“I’m here for 9 months and I’m still working,” he said.

Jenkins, who called Rogowsky a friend, said the announcement allows people to reflect on his career and successes.

“Legislator Rogowsky has served this Legislature and his district with honor and respect over the years, but also with a sense of brevity and humility,” Jenkins said.

04/01/11 Port Chester Man Pleads Not Guilty To Greenwich Avenue Robbery

Two men charged with robbing different stores on Greenwich Avenue in February pleaded not guilty Thursday in state Superior Court

Dominick Glowacki, 27, of 363 Wilett Ave., Port Chester, N.Y., and Brian Steed, 37, of West Putnam Avenue, appeared separately in court wearing grey sweat suits as their lawyers entered the pleas.

Both cases are set to move to a docket reserved for more serious cases.

Glowacki was charged with first-degree robbery after he was caught fleeing up Greenwich Avenue with 924 OxyContin pills stolen from CVS, police said.

Police said Glowacki used a BB gun that looked like a real firearm to commit the robbery. No one was injured during the incident.

Once in custody, Glowacki allegedly told police he was a drug addict who had been unemployed for several years. He said he decided to rob the pharmacy to maintain his high after waking up hung over from heroin, cocaine and alcohol, police said.

During the interview, police said they determined Glowacki had been staying with Steed the night before the CVS robbery. Steed is charged with robbing a Subway Restaurant on Greenwich Avenue days before using the same gun and hooded sweatshirt as Glowacki.

Glowacki told police Steed made comments about the robbery and showed him the money he obtained from the incident, according to police. Police said Steed slammed a gun on the counter in front of a Subway employee and fled with money after ordering a sandwich. No one was injured.

Police said they believe Steed went back to an apartment just around the corner on West Putnam Avenue after committing the robbery. Steed was arrested shortly after Glowacki and charged with first-degree robbery.

Due to the connection of the cases, attorneys for the suspects asked a judge to make sure the two were in constant separation on days when they are brought to court.

Both suspects remain held on $100,000 bonds. Glowacki and Steed are slated to return to state Superior Court April 21.

The importance of being Marty (Journal News)
The Westchester County Board of Legislators operates on a principle called the 'Rule of Thirds.' A veteran political insider described the rule this way: 'One-third of the board makes things happen, one-third watches things happen and one-third says, 'What happened?' ' Since there are 17 legislators, the long division falls short somewhere.
