This week's Times Ledger contains a story about Councilman Dennis Gallagher's anticipated removal of 3 community board members for refusing to act as his marionettes:
Gallagher, civic spar on interviews
Civic leader and CB5 member Robert Holden has said he believes Queens County Democrats and Republicans agree not to run candidates in certain districts so incumbents can stand for re-election unopposed. In a telephone interview, Holden said his request to bring an attorney and stenographer to an interview with Gallagher concerning his reappointment to the board were denied.
Can't blame him for wanting that session recorded. Not surprised that the Pinkster said no, either.
This follows QC's exclusive on how Pinky taunted an ex-Marine at a shopping mall and how Pinky continues his Napoleonic crusade.
In related news, it looks as though Queens Crap can cross the Middle Village-Maspeth Civic Association off of our Christmas card list this year (despite featuring their meeting as a community event a couple of weeks ago). Look at the ridiculous response one of their members received when they disagreed with the organization's obvious butt-kissing:
When harassment is an indication of mental illness
Dennis Gallagher Must Go!
Crappy finds himself a little disturbed by this, for a civic association should be happy to see their elected officials held accountable for their indefensible actions, like removing people from a community board who are committed to bettering their neighborhood. It seems their only crime is disagreeing with their councilman on zoning changes and variances.
