What you are about to read is just really sad. Pinky has hit a new low - perhaps rock bottom - in his personal vendetta against a local civic group.
Last night, the councilman handed out his latest attack letter at a Community Board 5 meeting. Apparently he has been feeling the heat from the Juniper Park Civic Association, is seeking revenge and attempting to perform CPR on his political career by sending out hate mail about them.
Has anyone ever heard of such behavior? Civics are groups of unpaid volunteers who, in this case, are apparently not for sale like the $112k councilman is. Crappy doesn't know where to begin disecting the half-truths, lies and outrageous implications that the councilman makes. It's obvious that the "rank and file" members of this organization are not flooding Pinky's office with sympathy cards, otherwise, Mr. G would not have felt the need to write these letters, hand them out at public meetings and mail them directly to JPCA members. (He unethically used their mailing list to do this, too, but that is a whole other story.)
Read the second paragraph about St. Saviour's church. Dennis now claims he's trying to save the entire site. LIE. Then he states the developer "has halted any discussion for demolition or development." That's because Dennis' hasn't secured the zoning change yet that his friend "Tommy" needs in order to build, although he's been trying very hard, especially after Tommy hired Dennis' friends at the Parkside Group.
Remember, Dennis took no action to try to get the city to buy the property because he didn't think it was good for the developer. The fact of the matter is that the civic group's passion and perserverance is the only reason there aren't 100 units of housing minus a church on that property right now.
Pinky apparently believes that love is forever, even in the face of betrayal. He can't get over why JPCA has turned on him when they used to like him. It's a very simple concept, Dennis, and I'll put it in caps so you and your friends can understand it.
REAL CIVICS SUPPORT POLITICIANS WHEN THEY DO GOOD AND OPPOSE THEM WHEN THEY SELL OUT.
Did you get that, or were there not enough misspellings for you to understand? You have sold out, that's why your old friends don't love you anymore. I guess they have enough integrity not be your mindless cronies, like some others who follow you around like kids waiting to be handed their ice cream money.
Most disturbingly - read the paragraph second from the bottom. Pinky believes that he and other elected officials should be immune from criticism! If you don't feel people have the right to criticize those they elected to office, then I think Red China may be a better place for you, my Pink friend, so please stop wrapping yourself in the American flag. The funny thing is that I have scoured Juniper Civic's website, which seems to be updated quite regularly. While I've found articles critical of Melinda Katz's mishandling of the Trylon Theater debacle, against Weiner and Nadler's support of the Cross Harbor plan, criticism of the mayor for allowing overdevelopment, a mention that Markey doesn't show up at any meetings and a strike back at Oddo for telling them to "go back to Queens," I can't, however, find anything negative written about Crowley, Ackerman or Liu. Apparently Pinky just made that up.
Next read his list of "accomplishments." In 6 years, he has sponsored exactly 11 bills that he thinks are worth bragging about. How many did he actually write himself? None. He isn't smart enough to do that. He just signs onto other people's. And some of them are quite revolutionary - Crappy is happy that newsracks are in order all across the city.
And I guess it's ok for Dennis to increase fines for violating DOB stop work orders - since he tells violators not to let them in!
Congratulations, Pinky. If showing up at a constituent's house uninvited and harassing a senior citizen at a shopping mall didn't make the case clear enough, then with these letters, you've succeeded in showing the world that you definitely are a failure as a human being, as Mr. Kampermann stated.
As much as we love to ridicule Pinky here on QC, this behavior just isn't funny, it is a cry for help from a disturbed man at the end of his rope. Yes, we still want you out of office Pinky, but we also want you to get the help you need. You've apparently been way off the deep end for more than 6 months, as evidenced by your previous letter!
