Mayor says Willets Point is NOT blighted!!!!

"It's a great opportunity for the city to build 5,000 units of housing, to create 5,000 jobs. To take an area which, it's not fair to say it's blighted. It's not. It's ‘seen its better days’ is a fair way to phrase it."

Mayor Works Towards Willets Point Vote

Holy crap, did I just hear that right? Watch the clip for yourself!

Now that he finally confessed that he's been lying about the "blighted" part, will he just open up to tell us that, he's the Commissar, and he woke up with a developer crony one morning, threw a tantrum and decided to take private property and private family businesses to thank the developer crony?

After all, what's the use of being a Commissar is you have to restrain your impulses to steal?

obviously part of the negotiating tactic to approve the plan

we have been working hard trying to get people to sign so we don't have to eminent domain them, even thou we are offering 50% of the value. the people are scared and are just trying to avoid being condemed . if you gave them the streets and sewers they would never sign to leave, so in the meantime we will continue to steal land unless the council stops us. the ones that stand up to us we will condem them. we will sign 1 or 2 big deals this week before the vote to try and pursuade the council to vote yes even thou we still only own 25% of the land. that should be enough to condem the other 75% with a promise that we will continue to negoitiate after the ulurp . i cant help but pat myself on the back for a job well done and well planned

angry taxpayer who hates pinsky said...

on nov 10 the mayor & lieber are meeting with the council to try and pressure them into beleiving the blight story even when the studies prove otherwise, even their own guy said there was minimal pollution . its amazing the way the city plans every deal with land owners and meeting with the council to try and pursuade the elected to change their vote. what does a few more deals really mean when you still have 75% of land & buissinesses out there to be condemned? shame on the mayor and edc and mr pinsky. when will all the lies stop?

mr edc said...

mr edc has spoken said if you have 50% there is still 50% left so the council will vote it down !! sorry seth!!

someone must have told the commissar that he would never win the blighted fight in court as the city caused the blight so they came up with the quote that it has saw its best days. this means the city will now try and say it needs to take the land because of the eniviormental problems but again the citys own study's say that is not the case, so this is the reason the mayor+bob leiber will sit with all council members on nov 10th and try to pursuade them to vote yes. the mayor should withdraw the ulurp untill he makes deals with every landowner so there is no eminent domain used, and lets not stand for the comment that we need eminent domain because we can't let 1 person hold up the project please stop. between the mayor & the edc this plan is doomed unless evryone is happy!! hear me seth? any council member who votes for this plan is voting for eminent domain and should be remembered at election time + kicked out with the likes of mr pinky pinsky

Property owners be advised: Don't limit your defense to environmental issues. The City still may claim that the proposed project is beneficial strictly for economic development reasons having nothing to do with the environment, as was the case in New London. Anticipate and defend against that now, as well.

Not quoted because it is obnoxiously written in all caps

if you all cap writing DOLTS think "Mr EDC has spoken" is really an EDC employee you need to lay off the ripple.

maybe mr edc pinsky has been sipping the ripple and thats why he is dying to push deals across at the last second after waiting 3 years to try and impress the council. pinsky should be fired for drinking on the job !! his work so far proves it . we all know when he announces his new deals next week it was all in an attempt to say the edc has been trying and we will continue to sign people after the ulurp.i mean come on at every new hearing a week before they ramp it up and pressure people to sell. all in an attempt to pull off the big one.and we will continue to talk after ulurp haha haha if you beleive that i have a palm tree in the north pole to sell you.anyone who doesn't have a deal by ulurp WILL be condemned !! give it up pinky the council knows your a sham go back to washington a sit next to randy levine like the puppet you are
