Whitestone doesn't want high school
You have to love the quotes from this piece from CBS New York:
“I think it’s a terrible idea. I mean I think that we do need a high school. but I don’t think we need it here,” Lucille Seeto said.
“You know what’s going to happen. They’re going to start busing people in from all over the place and you know this just not the neighborhood for it,” Ronnie Mund said.
“My home, I put $800-thousand in my home, I knocked it down when it should be worth $2-million. I’m offered $900-thousand, they feel it’s a fire sale now,” Kevin Shields said.
Also, I couldn't help but notice that Queens County Democratic Machine candidate Paul Vallone seemed to be leading this rally. Since when are Joe Crowley's council picks against building schools? Or is that just something they say until they get into office?
