Frank Lloyd Crap swears Como in

It's been 2 months since he won the special election, but Anthony Como's ceremonial swearing-in at City Hall was delayed by one thing or another until last week. It was very touching. We're sure he'll live up to the oath...

Right after he was done with the formality, he sent out this postcard to voters in his district - paid for with taxpayer funds. Too bad he misspelled his community affairs liaison's last name (it's Arena). He also quoted himself twice consecutively:

"I am interested in hearing from my neighbors about issues that concern them."
"Whenever I can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact my district office."

It's important to note that he didn't promise to help anyone with anything, just that they should call him. No need to do actual work when you can put plants in the audience that will thank you publicly, just as Como did during his town meeting with Serf last week.

We'll leave you with this train wreck of a sentence from Anthony's official bio, which was finally put on the council's website last week:

"As a life long Queens resident, he currently resides with his wife in Middle Village, Queens."

Photo originally in Queens Courier (sans Frank and Bill).

Just came from Forest Hills Police Night out. Turned out to be one big campaign rally. Who was there? Partial list, so many can't remember all:

Milinda Katz with baby and staff taking photos.

Serf Maltese passing material.

Anthony Como passing out material.

Helen Sears

Toby Stavasky

Karen Kosowitz

AND MORE JOB HUNTERS FROM ALL OF QUEENS.

GUESS IT REALLY WAS A JOB FAIR. I WAS AT THE WRONG PLACE.

Perhaps they hoped to get $14 Milliom for the photos.

Unique way to raise campaign funds.

Anthony's bio is one of the funniest things I've ever read.

How many times can you say the name Senator Serphin R. Maltese in one paragraph?

"He was elected on June 5th, 2008 in a special election."

I thought it was June 3rd.

The asshole doesn't even know what day the election was on?

"He is known in the community as an honest hardworking individual who cares about his community and its residents."

Actually, he is known in the community as the gavone who is building a giant shithouse down the street from Gallagher.

"Anthony Como was born on April 22, 1974, in Wyckoff Heights Hospital, New York City. Within a few months of his birth, his family moved to Ridgewood, Queens."

Did he stay in the hospital that whole time? Where did he live before?

"Anthony Como was promoted to the Homicide Investigations Bureau, where he investigated countless homicides many leading to arrests and successful prosecution of criminals."

HA HA HA HA what else would he do there?

This is a very petty post. You don't really have much news today?

Here's a neighbor complaining to you Como:

What the hell is that monstrosity of a Home Depot or Sears store doing on 64th Street just a very short distance from the pervert Gallagher's house? It's about the ugliest building in the neighborhood, neighbor, (Maybe it's a bowling alley?)

It's not just ugly and oversized, it's got more than 27 unresolved building violations plus more than 8 unresolved stop work orders.

Violators like this must be punished, What will you do to rid the neighborhood of this horror?

Can you get Serf Maltese to start eminent domain proceedings to convert the property to some useful public purpose - say, restroom (toilet) facilities for the traveling public.

"This is a very petty post. You don't really have much news today?"

Como: If you have time to post comments like this, you have time to resolve the previous problem.

Fat" Tony Como and his

(Correction:
Sorry for the extra "L" in Italian.
My finger slipped).

Is Como Italian or Sicilian?

There's a big difference, you know!

I find it hilarious that you don't realize how dumb you sound complaining about this guy's house. Does anyone wonder why the JPCA is losing membership and gets half the attendance at their meetings that they used to get? Keep it up!

Sicilians are Italian.
Please, explain the difference to me.

Phil said...

The JPCA has more members than it did last year and attendance is fine. The fact that those running for office are looking to woo their membership proves they are a force to reckon with. They will always be the only civic in the area that gets things done and puts out a kick-ass publication.

did they have to enlarge the doorway for him to fit through?

look at how much time Crowley and Como spent at our debate before last election. They could give 2 shits about you, PUTZ

Anonymous said...

Actually, in recent weeks Liz Crowley apologized to them for not coming to the debate and admitted she made a mistake. I saw her at their concerts talking with them and being friendly.

Phil said...

Who said I was talking about Crowley and Como? And who cares about them? They are small potatoes and one is as bad as the other.

Anonymous said...

And who cares about them

who else is courting them, Barack and McCain? the organization is small potatoes

charles ober did not win the special election, so the moderator of this blog did not get her way and feels the need to resort petty personal attacks. how 'bout she puts up pics of herself and let readers ridicule her physical appearance (as she continually does to mr. como)? Or allow readers to point out and publicize every typo, misspelling and general offense to grammar generated by the moderator?

but doesn't everyone know the moderator is "guy with a sexy voice".

Pinky has nothing better to do nowadays than send his pathetic comments into Queens Crap because he has no money, no power, no job and his reputation is shot to shit. Go play in the street with a granny you sick fuck.
