From the Office of Congressman Eliot L. Engel: Statement on President Trump's Rollback of Protections for Federal Workers PDF Print Email

By Bryant Daniels, Director of Public Affairs, Office of Congressman Eliot L. Engel


Editor's note
: Representative Eliot L. Engel represents the 16th Congressional District, which comprises the northern Bronx and the southern half of Westchester County, including Bronxville.

Jun. 6, 2018: Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement on President Trump's issuing executive orders to roll back protections for federal workers:

"This move by the Trump Administration to crack down on federal workers' unions is just their latest attempt to weaken workers' rights in this country. For decades, Republicans have sought to destroy unions because they believe corporate interests should be put before those of the American worker. It was shameful when Reagan did it in the '80s and it is just as shameful now with President Trump, who has a long history of stiffing working-class folks, going back to his days in Atlantic City.

"During my time in Congress, I have voted against amendments which sought to curtail official time and against measures designed to expedite the firing of federal employees within the VA, because our federal workforce should be free from political pressures and whims. Labor has always been the backbone of our country and the true engine that drives our economic prosperity. Our leaders in government should be working to strengthen our unions, not bring them to their knees."

NY state has the highest percentage of workers in the entire country and the highest taxes. Politicians on both sides of the spectrum have traded pay and perks for votes. The state under new federal tax laws limiting or eliminating state and local tax deductions will begin to loose residents, businesses, startups, and retirees to more tax friendly states. As more people exit those remaining will be taxed at every higher levels. Instead of addressing the root cause state politicians are offering up poor solutions destined to fail. Reality will set in when the citizens of the state file their 1918 taxes and realize how much more they will pay in federal taxes. Uncontrolled state spending and sweetheartdeals are the root causes as other states get along just fine at lower levels.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
