Vallone got campaign contributions from WM

From the Queens Campaigner:

[Kevin] Kim has raised $233,102 and spent $161,848 in the race, according to city Campaign Finance Board figures. [Paul] Vallone, son of former Council Speaker Peter Vallone and brother of Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Astoria), has raised the second-highest amount in the race with $135,526 and spent $88,795.

Vallone’s contributions were a mixture of large and small donations.

He received $3,000 from Astoria’s Michael Partridge Realty Corp. and Waste Management in Houston as well as $2,750 from his father Peter Vallone, the former Council speaker; an employee of Old Westbury-based Nash Builders real estate company; and homemakers from Manhattan, Jackson Heights and Lawrence, N.Y. Other contributors include his brother Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., the president of Bayside’s Helms Bros. Automobile, attorneys from Mattone & McCabe, the Steamfitters Local 638 union, the Sheet Metal Workers 28 union, actor Tony LoBianco and CB 7 Vice Chairman Chuck Apelian. Apelian is also his campaign manager.


Wow, a $3000 campaign contribution from Waste Management on top of $1M in lobbying fees to get them an unnecessary truck contract with the City. Amazing!

If Paul Vallone gets voted into office, I move out of Whitestone.

Hey he apparently doesn't even have to represent your area to screw you, though. So sit tight!

Paul Vallone has received campaign contributions from Gene Kelty (Chair of Community Board 7), Chuck Apelian (1st Vice Chair of Community Board 7)and Adrian Joyce (former Chair of Community Board 7 who is currently employed by one of the City's largest developers.

Does this mean CB7 will now be for sale to the highest bidder? Oh wait, I forgot, CB7 already is for sale. I guess that now it's just a matter of price.

Chuck Apelian was at Councilman Avella's rally yesterday cursing Steve Behar under his breath when he said to take note of which candidates failed to attend the press conference about relocating Willets Point businesses to the College Point Corporate Park.

Please leave Vallone Senior alone. He goes to Mass everyday. He receives communion, kneels in the pew, and makes the sign of the cross.

God Bless the religious Vallone family.

Remember this the next time you turn your nose up at CB1 in Astoria.

What happens in Astoria today will be in your backyard tomorrow.

Go there. Walk around.

Go back to Bayside.

Weep.

What the hell is wrong with you all? If your community is important to you, you will make an effort to fight for it.

Ask Paul about his finances. Ask him about how Astoria is going to the dogs.

Do this in public in front of the press.

Have the camera rolling and share it with Crappie.

I watched Tony Avella on NY!, it's sad that he came off CRAZY!!!!!!

Queens Crapper said...

How did he come off crazy? He called the mayor out on his hypocrisy and he supported the residents who said there would be too much traffic with both the 5 businesses being relocated to the College Point Corporate Park and the police academy being built there. Add the additional trucks to and from the Sanitation MTS and it will pretty much be a god damned nightmare.

THE ONLY SANE PERSON IN AN ASYLUM WILL NOT BE 'NORMAL' TOO.

THIS IS THE OLD SAW THEY TELL US ABOUT HIM, HE CANNOT 'PLAY' WELL.

THESE PEOPLE THAT RUN OUR CITY HAVE DRIFTED SO FAR OFF PLUMB THAT THEY ARE WARPED.

IF YOU WANT SOMEONE WHO SET UP THE RULES, ASK VALLONE. WALK AROUND THEIR NABE IF YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT THE RULES DO TO A COMMUNITY.

Paul Vallone aint winning anything. He is a bozo. That family has never won a race. The old man lost 3 (three, three, three !!!!!!!!!) times he tried for highter office (Governor, Mayor and Congrtess) spanning twenty years. The brother couldnt break 50 percent of the vote against some nobodies and 100 percent of the voters thought they were voting for the old man. Baldie Paulie is gtoing to go back to keeping the secretaries busy at Vallone and Vsallone while the old man funds the kids mortgages.

Easy answer....

"We're in the money!!!! We're in the money!!!!"

why does everyone hate on Vallone for his contributions from out of the district when almost 90% of Kevin Kim's contributions come from outside of this STATE and some from out of the COUNTRY. Some of you need to start doing a little more research before you bash Vallone for stuff like this.

or the fact that Iannece has also received contributions from developers himself. But yet everyone only points out Vallone. Behar and Markell are clearly weak and unfit candidates for a city council member. Iannece can't speak about anything but how he has virtually done everything one can do for Northeast Queens.... right... However, everyone consistently Bashes Paul Vallone and the Vallone family. That family did more for this this community than any of the other clowns running for seat.

Queens Crapper said...

Just take a look at what Paul Vallone has done for Maspeth and you can get a good idea of what he'll do for Bayside!

That's right, he won't shit in his backyard (Astoria), but he'll certainly dump his load elsewhere.
