"Drums that get banged on loudly get listened to; Will you sign this petition? Click here:, says my friend, Robert Rendo, NYC teacher and NYS citizen Robert Rendo. who created a petition for this reason: "The conditions of the Sprain and Taconic Parkways throughout Westchester County, New York are horrible, decrepit, dangerous, and acutely neglected. Both routes are replete with bumps, cracks, chasms, potholes, and sinkholes. This is NOT why we pay taxes, and we demand that our tax dollars flow back to us in the form of timely, effective, long lasting route repair. That's why, I created a petition to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, and 4 others."
