Officials said the suspect is still on the lam.

@ MB. Police is a local matter. If you call Skelos, it should be regarding the policies in place the govern OMC. And that is within his sphere of influence since both OMC and RVCHA are State Entities. I cannot stress that enough: Do not call Skelos on crime. Call Skelos to enact policy change. Skelos' office cannot "pass the buck" if you phrase your concern from this point of view.

@ Will. I rail against the Mayor because I know he can't do a thing about OMC besides more police surveillance and that's the point; Bait the Mayor into telling the RVC constituency the truth that OMC is problem bigger than his office. (Telling people "I'm working on it" is weak beyond measure.) BTW more law enforcement isn't going to solve the problem. The message should be clear: ""REAL CHANGE means POLICY CHANGE. We must start from the TOP. Write your state and federal representatives about the management of OMC." As for "inside information", all the data collected came from staffers at Village Hall, the board members of the RVCHA, the Police Commissioner, and Skelos' office. People in this town need the straight dope ( no pun intended) on how OMC works. And the Mayor should be the one to lay it all out for all to see. Leaving this to Patch Bloggers is not the right way.
