Senator Leroy Comrie found time to speak out about hateful graffiti in Holliswood, an area whose demographics tend to be Sikhs, Muslims and Jews, BUT yet has not yet spoken out about a 15 year old girl who was pimped out by Joseph Gilbert (from your neighborhood of St. Albans), for four months at Rev. Floyd Flake’s Greater Allen Cathedral Senior Residence in your district (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/11-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-plus-some-new-info-arises/). Not to make light of hate graffiti, but no one was hurt at least physically by this act, but what do you think that 15 year old black girl went through for four months at Flake’s Greater Allen Cathedral Senior Residence. Doesn’t she at least rate somewhat to have you or any other local elected official or community leader speak out on her behalf and also to speak of the large number of underage girls of color in the Jamaica/SE Queens area who have been forced into prostitution. Sounds like you are playing favorites. OH, WAIT, you are up for reelection and the Sikhs, Muslims and Jews vote, but this 15 year old black girl does not. OK, I get it. AND so identity politics still continues with the Democrats in Jamaica and SE Queens. NOW, black residents of Jamaica, WHY do you continue to vote for this ebony version of Star Wars’ Jabba the Hutt. He does not even have the decency to make a comment about a young 15 year old black girl forced into prostitution at the almighty Rev. Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence, but he found time to wobble over to Holliswood to speak out on hate graffiti. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/

Wonderful article! We are linking to this great post on our website. Keep up the good writing. http://www.yourlawyer.com/new-york

If u don't have anything nice to say about Ass. Member Clark and other Pols, than pass on saying anything at all, u BIGOT CREEP!!!

Condolences to the family and friends of Assembly Member Barbara Clark. Of course praises are coming in from hacks like Public Advocate Letitia James and Senator Leroy Comrie, both who called her a "mentor". If this mentor produced hacks like James and Comrie, then that says much about her mentoring then. Remember that Shirley Huntley was a mentor to James Sanders and Ruben Wills. ENOUGH SAID. Dead or alive, Southeast Queens pols are just hacks in a f**ked up corrupted system. I am sure the hacks are already in line put together by the a-hole Democratic machine to fill the position with one of their lackeys. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/

May he be skinned alive in prison. Absolutely NO ONE will hear him scream. Hope they also catch up with the dirtbag pigs who assaulted the young woman.

Nothing like finally doing something about cancer when it reaches the 4th stage and you knew from the beginning but choose not to do anything. That is pretty much how elected leaders react in Southeast Queens and Jamaica. For years, hell decades, every imaginable thing has been dumped into Queens from poisonous waste facilities to homeless shelters, but yet it seemed very little was done from our elected leaders including folks like Archie Spignor, Leroy Comrie, Gregory Meeks, Vivian Cook and Williams Scarborough. They all had or have been in office for decades while the community was pretty much a dumping ground for all kind of shit. Now at least one, Councilman Miller, wants to do something, but isn't it a little late after all this s**t has been dumped and the community has been turned into alow-class and poisonous ghetto. Don't nip a problem in the bud from the get go, wait till it festers and becomes 4th stage cancer. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/

I live on a dead-end block in Whitestone. With the possibility of no snow plow on my block. we all joined together on the block and actually shoved the block. Lo and behold, in the wee hours of the morning, a plow went through the block. It was actually worse. I ended up with a pile of snow in front of my driveway. The plows they use are very old fashioned. All they do is push the snow around, and you end up with huge mountains that never melt. They should use the type of plows they got in Russia. After it plows, the snow is sucked up. There's plenty of water around to dump the snow.

Very nice Congrats Barry!
