Dear Councilman Leroy Comrie, Councilman James Gennaro, Councilman Ruben Wills, Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall, Senator Malcolm Smith, Assemblymember Nily Rozic, Assemblymember Vivian Cook, Assemblymember William Scarborough, Iggy Terranova, Community Board #12 Members, Community Board #8 Members and Other Concerned Individuals:
I realize that some of you Jamaica elected officials are busy dealing with some corruption scandal issues (Councilman Ruben Wills, the latest rogue gallery playa; hell anymore you need a score card to keep track of all the dirty Jamaica elected officials) that occupies your time instead of focusing on real issues, but your job of taking care of your community of Jamaica (specifically the garbage issue) gets a failing grade. None of you have really done a damn thing to address it, let alone attempt to solve this issue caused by negligent property owners, owners of vacant & abandoned lots, local businesses not cleaning up, slumlord landlords, low class ghetto people and the influx of low class third world immigrants. And yes, these are the facts of who is causing the problem. I should know, I live here and see this everyday unlike some of you who have turned a blind eye. For you elected officials, if you have done something or addressed it, I would like for you to forward me an outline, along with what the plan was, how was it executed, when was it executed, the details and the results.
Here are today's garbage pick of the week, which includes a previous long standing member (168-07 89th Ave) and a new one (168-15 89th Ave). Both places are just two blocks from my apartment building.
1. Apartment Building at 168-07 89th Avenue (pics attached) owned by John E. Kruck of Hollis, NY. I have complained several times about the garbage in front of this building, how garbage is disposed of, no lids on containers, containers all over the sidewalk and garbage piled sky high. Can anyone tell me why this apartment building has no certificate of occupancy.
2. House at 168-15 89th Avenue (pics attached) owned by Codrington Hubert (lives on Long Island according to the neighbor). Right next to the slumlord apartment building above sits a white house that looks somewhat normal until you go to the back of the house, which is very easily accessible from the sidewalk and you will see a rat's heaven. Mounds of mounds of garbage including a refrigerator with the doors still attached (AH, major violation). The refrigerator and some of the garbage can be seen from the street. Also according to DOB website this house is zoned for 1 family but it seems to be a two family dwelling. I would not have known about this situation, but while filming a segment on that shithole apartment building with Ruchell Boone from NY1, the man living next door to this pile of shit told us about it. This is not an isolated case this is ALL OVER JAMAICA.
So while some of you are involved in the theft of taxpayers funds from nonprofit groups and other political shennigans our community is becoming hidden under a mound of garbage.
Until you show some respect toward our community and address this ongoing situation, you will receive disrespect from me. Remember you work for me (my tax dollars pay your salary), I do not work for you, although with all the leg work I do, it feels that way. I am extremely pissed off because for over two years I have been dealing with this garbage issue that is the worst in Queens and keeps getting worse every single day and it is still winter. Wait till warmer weather when Kennedy Fried Chicken bones are scattered on every block along with 24 oz cans of Arizona Tea and cheap vodka bottles.
One very pissed off constituent,
