Flushing Assembly seat turnover good or bad?

Many in Flushing, a center of Asian-American political life in New York City, are now asking whether the residents there are hurt by the revolving-door representation in the Assembly.

Queens Assembly Seat Is Like Musical Chairs

But many civic leaders say the turnover in the 22nd Assembly District is a reflection of the maturing of the Asian-American political community. As more Asian-American residents became more politically active, they are apt to follow a pattern of politics that has often emerged in New York City’s history: Factions emerge and vie for a foothold, then compete for that turf. And elected officials often seek to pass their political legacies to their children.

And many in this community say Flushing is no different.

Turnover my ass!

The KKK...Krowley's Klubhouse Krooks still control this turf!

It's just the finger puppet/pols
that change!

The KKK is about to remove their index finger from John Liu's ass
only because of term limits,
otherwise it'd still be up there!
