Save Flushing Queens has been organized to allow concerned citizens a voice in their community and the electoral process. Some people can sit idly by and not be concerned. Others must voice their opinion and take political action. The future of our section in Queens in local politics will be decided in September and November in the local elections for City Council.
In the 19th District, it is a classic battle with the top 3 Democrats being Jerry Iannece, Paul Valone and Debra Markell. The winner faces a strong Republican in Dan Halloran. Frankly, Markell and Vallone are qualified, energetic and have histories in political involvement for the right reason, while Jerry Iannece will forever be a political bridesmaid and never a bride. Here’s why. Despite what appears to be an impressive display of community involvement, Iannece is a pompous, self-centered political wannabe who serves not for the feeling of satisfaction of assisting those in need, but to further pad his already bloated ego.
Those in political circles raise their eyebrows and shrug their shoulders when they hear the name Jerry Iannece. They know that he is a political self-promoter who is void of substance and lacks integrity. If you listen to Jerry Iannece speak you will immediately notice that he believes that he is the anointed one, that he is already a councilman, he even believes he can cure cancer.
Ultimately, Jerry Iannece is a jackass and Tony Avella said it best, “Jerry Iannece is unfit for public office”
The Democratic Party has much more to offer than Jerry Iannece. They have candidates who actually care. So while we set out not to endorse candidates, we certainly feel strongly that he should be denied.
