Bucking the tradition of the City Council voting to back up the local council member on an issue, Council Speaker Christine Quinn has told her puppet colleagues to vote yes to the Maspeth high school and they will shoot down Crowley's anticipated no vote first at the 9:30am Land Use Committee today and then at the full Council. I guess during an election year, the support of Bloomberg and the UFT is more important to third termers than the quality-of-life of constituents. What do they care? It's not their neighborhood.
This is also an amazing show of no confidence in the freshman council member from district 30. But Dizzy Lizzy probably doesn't care. Let's remember that "Schools First" was her special election platform. Unfortunately this won't be a school that puts Maspeth, Middle Village and Elmhurst kids first.
What about the unnecessary use of eminent domain at this site when there are other more suitable sites available where the owners have never even been made an offer? Since a small business and not a developer owns this land, it's therefore not of concern to the Council.
You are all a bunch of pigs and must be shown the door come November.
