The Politics of Terence Park

As this New Year begins we at Save Flushing Queens are begining to wonder what is in store for us politically this year. We know about the State Asssembly and we are standing by Grace Meng she is a proven leader we only wish she would run for State Senate and rid us of the horror show of Toby Stavitsky. But what will become of the Democrats seeking to occupy the District Leadership positions and in particular what will happen to Terence Park?

Terence Park was chosen as on of our Political Winners for his crossing party lines to support Peter Koo over the candidacy of Yen Chou. It was a smart and courageous thing to do. It is clear this decision has revived him as a formidable community leader in Flushing. But how long can he maintain that position? Can he withstand the new leadership of SJ Jung? Time will tell.

We believe Terence is a good man who is not as politically astute as SJ. If so why would Terence speak at the Swearing In of Councilman Halloran? Terence sometimes makes decisions based solely on Politics and not always on the merit of the issue.

We watched him closely in this last City Council race and were impressed we are not so impressed with what we have seen since.

We at Save Flushing Queens hope Terence can beat Carpetbagger SJ, but if he is to be successful he must put community first and himself second. We believe he can. But decisions like fronting for Halloran are just plain stupid! Terence this is the begining of a new Political life take advantage of it! Don't ruin it!
