Elizabeth Crowley has been endorsed by almost every big money union in the City. She's proud of this. But we all know what this means. They don't give money and endorsements for free. There's going be payback. If she's re-elected, she's going to be a lame duck council woman. She would not have to worry about another election. Don't expect her to be working too hard for us.




We will still vote for you Mr Holden. You are clearly the better candidate. You are not be-"holden" to the big Democratic machine. You fought for the little guy, all your life. Your community looks up to you, and respect your long resume of selfless good work. Hopefully you are able to get your message across to all the voters in district 30. Once they know, they it's a no-brainer.







Crowley is trying to fool you with stats...She says only 13% of the Rikers prisoners wind up going to upstate prisons. At first I thought that number was really low, either the judges are letting them all go, or her numbers were off. But likely, most prisoners are released for 'time served' because our courts are so backlogged. My friend was attacked by a homeless person, and his court appointed lawyer dragged the case out for 1.5 years. He had to go to court 8 times, before the prep was released for time served. What's sad is Crowley is trying to say 87% of the prisoners in Rikers do not belong there... We are not dumb...so don't try to fool us.


I do not understand how Crowley could criticize Holden for not taking a long time to get the community down zoned, when he was just a volunteer and not in any political office. He was at the mercy of the elected officials.





I guess it's a "glass half empty, glass half full" approach by the dysfunctional MTA all over again. What other choice these clowns will ever have, especially with the L train shutdown looming?









Trucks have been parked along this stretch of road for years, using it at a rest stop to sleep. But it's at the base of a highway exit, very dangerous for those not familiar with it. The city needs to stop this behavior - it's also bad along stretches of the Clearview.






Such dysfunction to the rotten core by the corruptive MTA.









A major inconvenience for all M train riders along the myrtle Avenue Line in the next ten months to replace the older portions of the line: However, the long term tradeoffs will be huge when there will be more M train riders and M train service once the L train shutdown comes into fruition.



















Catch-22: More freight trains on tracks = Less trucks on the road = Better air quality for all = Improved economic activity for all = No more public transportation access.







Yet we still get crappy bus, subway and train service with our deteriorating infrastructure in NYC, without any kind of reliable sources of funding soon.












Not be surprised that the TWU Local 100 will be screaming mad about this.









The attorney general apparently does not realize that EPA has established "special accounts" for the Gowanus Canal and Newtown Creek superfund sites among others where money collected from responsible parties is deposited for the cleanup. these special accounts are seperate from the superfund trust fund and are not subject to the vagaries of the superfund appropriation process. However, for sites without special accounts, the proposed cutbacks could slow down progress.









On the Q47 issue, since the terminals the Q47 is heading to are an airport and a shopping center, it does make sense to make it more reliable.
