Good luck Julissa!

Just be careful not to trip with a glass in your hand at the victory celebration.

Congratulations Julissa.

Please demonstrate for the sake of your predecessor that Domestic Violence is unacceptable, especially for elected city employees.

Big surprise. Ferreras was supported by the party bosses and had all the endorsements. If she can demonstrate her independence from the party bosses, she'd deserve congratulations. For now, it's wait and see.

Congratulations?????

To this hack, who was a crony of Monserrate, who also headed an organization that can't account for $250,000 in taxpayer funded money?

Here's an old NY Times article:

Here's what Monserrate said about the missing money:

“She’s the person to have the conversation with,” he said. “I wasn’t the director. I don’t know what paperwork was there, what books were there.”

Here's what Julissa says:

“I personally don’t keep the records”

Congratulations????

At least in Japan, when things of this nature happen, the guy in charge will do the honorable thing and "fall on his sword". But in Queens, when you head an organization that can't account for $250K, you run for political office and win.

(What are you, a hack putting on a spin. Get a life, she will not)

For now, it's wait and see.

(Move on you should know the drill by now)

Corona, like Elmhurst, Flushing, and So Ozone Park are not real communities as much as tweeder barracks.

She is perfect for the job (as it is).

Is that the "little voice of reality" speaking to you again, Miles?

Voice of reality?

It whispered in my ear - my portfolio up a 1/3 this decade. How about yours?

Keep you eye on the prize - everthing else is a mere summer squall.

whoops, up a third in the past year.

Amazing what can be accomplished by not ignoring spin and thinking for yourself.

Congratulations? I thought this blog was against overdevelopment, not for people who take money from the companies doing it.

Disappointed.

Of course you're up a third. When you have $3 dollars in your bank account, and deposit $1, you're going to go up by 33%.

Anyone who boasts of their strategy needs to back it up with hard data. If not, then you're simply another Madoff.

You can do better than that.

Any jerk could see that things were unsustainable. I sold my stocks years ago and went into debt instruments and commodities.

Actually its pretty easy to make money out there - only losers would resort to stock fraud - if you have the wits your are born with.

Investing in the market is a bit like listening to the politicans.

Take everything with a grain of salt and do your own thinking.

If you see through the spin the answer is generally in plain sight.

You know all about spin vs the real world, don't you? Its the difference between BS and substance.
