The audio recording of Yancy McArthur stating that he did indeed remove the 'Retire Saland' sign because Senator Saland doesn't want them displayed has made its way to the public. This clearly contradicts the statement he gave to the Poughkeepsie Journal that he removed the sign because it was obstructing traffic. Sit back, listen to his admission of guilt to the HP Police Department and enjoy.

Not only is he a thief, he is also a lying sack of s***

Yancy McArthur has finally been exposed for what and who he really is. What is truly interesting, he exposed himself to be a thief and a liar to boot.He just a narcissist who is delusional in his belief that he is some sort of political genius who is highly regarded in the community. On the contrary, most people who know him or of his reputation shudder when his name or his wife's name is mentioned. I heard him speak at the Republican convention when he sought the nomination to run for the assembly. He was so pathetic along with his latest flunkie, Joe Kakish, who nominated him. McArthur is a self admitted thief of very limited intellect which is very evident on this self-incriminating audio. He is in fact a loser, 360 degrees. Big time!

That deserves a Long Whistle. Wow. Did he really think that he was doing Saland a favor? Does he have any meaningful contributions to give... or is he just a low-level schmo who shares the same job description as an ant?
I would wager that this has been systemic in Saland's campaign with, at the very least, Saland's tacit approval. But it's to be expected with career politicians and their respective camps. What with the political patronage and goodies that underlings such as Mr. McArthur reap from their political patrons. Anyone who sat up and listened in 10th Grade History can should be able to see tones of a feudal hierarchy and be able to understand that favors (both above and below board) are exchanged up and down the ladder.
Now what really should roil up District Republicans is the fact that the Republican Party establishment- i.e., Saland and his supporters in key positions- was trying to effectively quash the political dialogue WITHIN ITS OWN RANKS in an effort to protect themselves and to shield themselves from losing power. As a high-level functionary -and more importantly, a beneficiary- of the party machine, Saland has carefully crafted the orbits of many, many lesser players in such a way to guarantee unquestioning loyalty from political lackeys which can be turned against forces of change within Republican ranks. This is not about the better interests of the district and its constituents. This is about Saland and his shlepers, such as Mr. McArthur, retaining power. "The first instinct of power to is retain power". This is not a narrow issue of stealing signs and any intra-party inquiry should not stop with Mr. McArthur.

Oh, and his wife looks like a real shlump, too

Oy a lebn af dayn kop! Glad to see some juicy Mameloshn tossed around here in these Northern parts. This man Yancy is Saland's shleper? Fortunately he has too little seykhl for a promotion. Maybe he'll be a Tokhes Leker Emeritus for Saland when he's out on the curb. Such things for selling your body and soul!

To think that this moron has stated both publicly and in private that someday he will be governor of NY State. After listening to this audio, McArthur is an absolute inept fool. He has publicly confessed to being a thief via this audio and he has also implicated Saland for encouraging larceny.The McArthurs really should leave this area and take up residence on Planet Stupid where thay can rule in splendor. Thieves are usually not considered to be an asset to a community or any other civic group. They can take their so-called Republican committee of stooges with them.

OMG! I do believe that McArthur's audio has gone viral!

What were the voters of Hyde Park thinking when they elected him town supervisor? Listening to him on the police audio it is very apparent that this person has serious issues concerning his intellect or rather lack of. It is also quite perplexing and troubling that this person was a two time town supervisor and was also elected a commissioner of the Roosevelt Fire District. How sad.

10/14/2012 09:28:07 am

When Yancy called the Hyde Park Police, did he know that all calls are recorded. If he did, how stupid can one be. Perhaps he should have consulted his crony William Truitt, a retired Hyde Park cop before calling. However, as a resident and voter of Hyde Park, I thank him for proving the fact that he removed the signs.

Thanks Yancy
10/14/2012 01:19:54 pm

Thanks Yancy. You have confirmed what man have always thought about you. You are a thief, liar and coward. Quite an accomplishmeny, Governor McArthur! Ha, ha, ha!

Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.

Isn't that right McArthur?

10/16/2012 04:48:22 am

Guess the truth is out now on Yancy. I have always thought that he was a crooked politician. What a clown and how embarrasing to be caught stealing signs. He should take those stolen signs and give them to everybody's favorite town lunatic Marino. Who knew two men could make fools of themselves with signs in the same month. Yancy....what do you have to say for yourself now?

It's apparent that "Steve" is also intellectually challenged. How does "Steve" equate stealing signs with an individual who displays sign as per our first amendment right to free speech? "Steve" sounds as if he subscribes to the Langan Doctrine. "You can say whatever you long as it agrees with me." I do give "Steve" credit for his take on Yancy. Yes, Yancy is a thief.

BTW, "Steve", the sign that you find offensive is a matter of public record.

On a mostly unrelated note, You should see the new Dicarlio Elephant to A$$ flyer, It's up on ynn. -

Without the benefit of the DiCarlo mailer, Saland behaved like an ass when he involved himself with Jean & Yancy McArthur. Is this the kind of judgement that we want in our elected officials?

Has anybody heard rumors that Martino will run for office again? Hyde Park and the state of New York could use his leadership.

10/22/2012 06:25:57 am

In my travels this morning, I noted a new sign up that reads "All Hyde Parkers voting for democrats on November 6th" I wondered if Yancy knows about this and is so will be be tempted to remove this. Also, being a resident of Hyde Park and eligible for voting, this sign is untruthful as there is now way any one will know how I intend to vote. Perhaps this is another one of Jim Lanagan's famous lies. I would be interested if anyone else has seen this sign. I first noticed it as I turned into Pine Woods Road heading to Route 9.

Signs gone mad in Hyde Park

Interesting post about this new sign in Hyde Park. Either Yancy steals it or Martino turns it into an anti Langan sign and marches bravely on Rte. 9. Yancy and martino should be partners in embarrasing behavior contest. Who do we think wins that battle? Tough call.

10/25/2012 01:57:56 pm

Signs gone mad sound like he or she is coming from the Langan faction. To state that Langan is a thief is a statement of fact, something that Langan should have given considerable thought to before he attacked a number of local individuals in his horrid rag.I for one admire Martino for exposing this creep for the thief that he is. Yancy on the other hand is a self admitted thief, a life long loser just like his pal Langan.

You tell them Ralphie... and Martino
10/29/2012 06:08:32 am

I think the entire community should realize that Martino is a brave man. It is very brave to stand on the side of the road holding signs about Langan. Most people probably think Martino is a crazy old man with nothing better to do with his life. I for one disagree and don't find his behavior embarrasing. He has a right to expose the evil forces at work in Hyde Park. Langan is up to no good and Martino is our guy to keep an eye on things. Stand tall Martino.

At the very least, Yancy admitted that he stole. Langan is still denying that he stole $18,000.00 thirty years after the fact. Who is Langan kidding? What a jerk!

10/29/2012 09:23:40 am

McArthur is an absolute loser. I can't wait for Martino to go after him and that bigger loser who passes for McArthur's wife. Both of them along with the Langans have done a great job of manifesting evil at work.

Go Ralphie Go
10/31/2012 06:43:08 am

Martino must continue on the offensive. Nothing like a crazy old man with lots of anger and nothing better to do! Let's get that maniac back in office.
