  5. Ah, playing the Theology card…

  6. or maybe playing the black card
    or the woman card
    or the minority card
    but the reality is just that she is not playing with a full deck!

  7. The tolls are a serious problem when it costs 40 dollars plus tolls and fuel just to travel to Staten Island from Ridgewood, and even more to from Brooklyn or even Westchester or the Bronx/ Queens for Work, Family or social events .routings via the city are rediculous traffic can’t easily commute to these Boroughs from bergen county.

    Tolls need to be reset to 10 dollars max round trip through alternate funding by state city and consumer taxes .Trucks move consumer goods and that type of demand wear and tear has to be considered for even more general tax funding to help the average Joe and Jane.internet commerce has not even begun to pay its way on state or local levels
