Rumors are abound that Senator Toby Staivsky will have a true challenge this September! This is a first...Senator Staivsky has been absent from our community for years. Rumor has it she does not even reside in her district.
As a resident and activist I salivate at the chance of voting this woman out of office. Name something she has done for Flushing? She is the Poster child for Albany Term Limits! The relationship between her and her son's business is well documented, and should be subject to criminal investigation.
John Messer announced he is running I saw his Poster in the Palace Diner...Do I know him? No (which is scary), Do we know what he stands for? No. Has he ever been involved in our community? No.
If he is the only choice I am sure he is better than Senator Stavisky. Petitions will be circulated this week lets see if some other candidates jump into the Fray!
I went to his web site noticibly absent is any indication of anything he has accomplished, any civic involvement, never a member of a civic association or fraternal group. I worry that he is just another Attorney looking to Albany for Power and Influence.
If it is Toby Vs Messer Then Messer it is.....

Am I the only one who is sitting in
That Superbowl should be on the West Side or even here in
Thank our elected idiots, who fought against the Stadium. The Super Bowl can bring in over $100 Million in Revenue that's a lot of School Teachers, a lot of Fire Houses, a lot of Senior Centers, a lot of money to give Tax rebates.
Shame on our Government Officials...... Shame on the Giants and Jets and.....Shame on us all for allowing our

I for one am most interested in finding out where is SJ on the Flushing Commons? He has attended the meetings, lurched in the rear as if an FBI agent was looking to slap him with another subpoena, but never, never even came forward to speak on behalf of the Korean merchants or on behalf of the Union workers who are starving for jobs.
Why is it" Maybe, because he is in the middle of a political quagmire? SJ was a tool of the Unions and Working Families Party, he was also the wonder child of the Korean community...A white night moving in from Jersey or wherever he came from to run for City Council. Here in lies the problem it is impossible to please both sides! So what does he do? Hides like a political wannabe who has no courage.
We may not always agree with our Political Leaders or those who have run for office and are seeking to run again, but we respect those with the conviction and courage to take a stand...They are leaders! Those who act like SJ is acting now are those who go into Politics to fuel their own ego.

Flushing Commons Must be Approved
Tuesday, March 30, 2010 4:24 PM EDT
Last week, Community Board 7 held a public hearing on the proposed “Flushing Commons” project. Over 70 people registered to talk about the privately funded $800 million project that would transform the five-acre Municipal Lot 1 site in the heart of Main Street Flushing into a dynamic mixed-use urban center.
The majority of those who spoke were in favor of The Flushing Commons LLC, builders – a joint venture of TDC Development & Construction Group and the Rockefeller Group Development Corporation – proceeding with the Department of City Planning certified project.
We support this project and its designers. They have carefully considered and responded to the wishes of the community and have done their homework well.
In addition to approximately 620 condominiums with a mix of unit sizes, there will be up to 275,000-square-feet of retail space for national, regional and local retail shops and restaurants and 234,000-square-feet of office space, all designed around the 1.5-acre landscaped “town square” that will include outdoor cafes and seating areas.
Parking was a major issue for local merchants and residents, and the TDC and Rockefeller groups hired parking experts to survey the lot’s current usage and project the future use, hour-by-hour and day-by-day. They asked how many spaces would make the lot the “right size.” Their experts – who surveyed over 400 people a day – came up with 1,600 spaces – 500 more than the existing lot and 900 more than required by zoning.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has already praised the project saying, “Together with the Macedonian African Methodist Episcopal Church’s affordable housing component of the development, it will create approximately 2,000 permanent jobs and 2,600 construction jobs, mostly for local residents.”
“The continued input from city representatives, local elected officials and community leaders, combined with the commitment from the developer, which is investing more than $800 million in private capital, is a great example of what can be accomplished when the public and private sector collaborate,” Bloomberg said.
This project is a win-win for all of Queens and must be approved and passed onto the Borough President for her approval as quickly as possible. The time to build it is now! We call on CB 7 for its approval now.

Now they choose to promote "Health Reasons" to further Tax! Next the Ice Cream Tax??
Perhaps the "Cup Cake Tax" ?? Please maybe the "Lollipop Tax"?
Maybe if our Government officials represented us in good faith we could use real programs instead of padding the pockets of corrupt Pols. Maybe we could save money on Criminal Investigations, Slush Funds could be used to help real people!
I wonder if we could have a public accounting to determine the price tag of how much money was spent Investigating the Slush Funds and I wonder what did David Weprin and Speaker Quinn know and when did they know it?
Can you imagine if you were in charge of Finances for a Corporation and the Stock Holders found out you were misdirecting their money to a fake account to spend on programs and services that helps you. How long would you last in your job? You would be fired right away!
Yet that is what happened in this City and what did we do: We elected and promoted David Weprin the Finance Chair without putting him under subpoena.
We give Speaker Quinn a new 4 year term without making her publicly testify before the State or City to find out what she knows.
We know this Council Staffers Council members are being arrested left and right and those in charge get promoted.....WHY?

This clearly will not bode well for Corey, and will damage him in his career as a lobbyist.
Corey has managed to dodge the bullet while under investigation with his former boss Sheldon Leffler who was jailed on campaign finance fraud.
