WPHOC Reviews – Lecuona, Milagros

Member : Lecuona, Milagros
Title: White Plains Council Member

Pros:

Has always demonstrated a keen desire to make White Plains a fair place for all its residents. Milagros has come to our City Council with a rich background in Architecture and Urban Planning. These are certainly two professions which can add value to the current mix of individuals residing as WP Council members.

Milagros has also been one of the few WP Council members who has actually responded to concerns of Battle Hill and other close in neighborhood residents. In 2009 Milagros was very helpful in eliminating a very big parking problem by using her creative abilities and also engaging with Commissioner Nicoletti in order to find a solution.

Cons:

Unfortunately, Milagros has also made some errors in judgment by voting in ways over some issues that really don´t benefit the majority of voters or Property Tax payers. I will list two very serious issues that Milagros voted yes on:

1) Milagros voted to allow the Grace Church Open Arms shelter to expand knowing that sex offenders were the bulk of the clients using these facilities. Thisshelter located in Zip Code 10601 and bordering Zip Code 10606 is blight on our community and puts over 18000 White Plains citizens at risk daily. The inclusion of over 62% plus, of all White Plains registered level 3 offenders in this small area absolutely destroys property values for residents of these areas as well. It seems that Milagros did not understand the true economic, social and public safety impact of this YES vote.

2) Milagros has also voted to delay much of the FASNY plans and in doing so seriously impedes the rights of private property owners to develop their properties in the City of WP.

3) Milagros also voted YES and approved accepting a grant from NYS to Planned Parent Hood of New Rochelle. This particular location does offer abortion services and it is clear that the Property Tax payers of White Plains should not be asked to endorse or pay for these services. Of course the WP Youth Bureau and others immediately claimed this program was only a counseling and education program so Property Tax payers needn´t be concerned. What tax payers should be concerned about is 80% or more of the members of the WP Youth bureau are Hispanic and many of the children´s parents don´t speak English.

Many parents fail to realize that NY is a State does not require parental consent in order for an underage woman to secure an abortion. WPHOC contacted Milagros and asked her to alert the Hispanic community regarding this concern and to our knowledge she never actively or publically responded to this concern.
