Queens Borough President Helen Marshall led a rally this week in favor of developing Willets Point:
"It's going to turn a place that is really been deserted practically, except for very crude kind of business enterprises, automobile-related and such,” said Queens Borough President Helen Marshall. “And we are going to turn in into a livable, wonderful community where people live."
But there was this in the Gazette:
Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, who had been a strong advocate of the $3 billion plan, said last Friday after seeing emerging alternate plans: "I am very disappointed with any alternate plan that does not include a convention center."
How can you rally in favor of something when you know there's a good chance that you'll be disappointed with it?
