From City Hall News:
A potential rival to Queens Republican Councilman Dan Halloran wants him investigated for possible ethical and criminal violations for claiming Sanitation Department workers staged a deliberate slowdown during last winter’s New York City blizzard.
Matthew Silverstein, a Queens Democratic state committeeman who lives in Halloran’s district, sent letters two weeks ago to the Department of Investigation, the Queens district attorney’s office and the New York City Council Ethics Committee asking for probes into whether Halloran knowingly reported and circulated false information about the alleged slowdown—a Class A misdemeanor that would carry automatic jail time.
Silverstein also sent a letter to the Grievance Committee for the Queens Judicial District seeking an investigation into whether the councilman violated rules of legal conduct through his use of attorney-client privilege.
Silverstein is the former president of both the Queens and New York State Young Democrats, and is known to be interested in running for City Council against Halloran for in 2013. Any findings of wrongdoing would result in further grist for a Council run. A spokesman for Halloran, Steven Stites, dismissed Silverstein’s letters as political.

Dem rival calls for investigation of Halloran
Posted by Queens Crapper at 12:04 AM
The snow wasn't plowed for 2 or 3 days. Something fishy happened.
Bayside,Nothern Blvd. to L.I.R.R. streets had plows driven northbound with their plows up...up....up...., three days after the snow fall.
no one can come forward with this information because of the nuts on the dept. that services our homes each week.
Halloran was correct....
Seems like an awful lot of politicians are being investigated these days, no?
Gramps said"...northbound with their plows up...up....up...., three days after the snow fall."
Seriously though, why bother with "goombah" Halloran, the idiots out there will vote for him again one mo' time.
Then the demographics will have their way.
They should investigate why Dan chose to dye his hair that awful Garfield the cat orange color.
a potential democratic rival...Matthew Silverstein...a person who needed a tutor in high school.
Silverstein is endorsed by the Stonewall Democratic Club of New York City. That'll go over real big in the 19th district.
can Siverstein even do his own laundry? (yea, i want someone who still lives with mom representing me)he really has a lot of "life experience" and can really "relate" to all the constituents in the 19th district.
Let Sivertein do all the democratic dirty work and try and make himself known, this will just give Vallone a better chance!
I smell Avella here. Silverstein is just a pawn.
Once again the tactic of attack-the-messenger is being used as a smokescreen. The important issue here is that if the allegations raised against CM Halloran prove true, he could soon be casting votes as part of a prison council.
dan will wipe up tony avella next year
and the state senate will not get dem majority, thus, parkside revenues will be down
however youg wanna bes like matt will still be used by the parkside
You'll have to translate the last paragraph. That isn't written in English.
With regard to the 1st paragraph: Dream on.
Halloran's political career is done. Now he can move on to being a republican lobbyist. He has NO shot at Avella's senate seat.
Silverstein may run in the primary. But it's gonna be a Vallone walk over. The Dem's looked bad and spent way too much cash in their last primary. The county party is going to be a lot more active making dirty deals to get people out of this race early.
Matt should go for district leader since evan will chicken out of a race once the good guys from whitestone challenge him.
The dem district leaders stavisky and sais in north queens are in for some surprises. I hope they make matt silverstein their leader. Ha ha. Show the public who they realy are.
Dem District Leader Evan Stavisky doesnt even live in Queens County. I hope Matt primaries Evan in 2012. Enough of Evan already
i hope he primaries evan too.
but matt wont do it. that whould mean putting your community over your carear in the party.
matts meal ticket will be based on selling out his district to the staviskys.
at least paul vallone is out their trying to get a base.
Isn't limp-wristed Tony a Stonewaller?
Do you know from first-hand experience?
at least paul vallone is out their trying to get a base.
WITH ALL THE DEVELOPERS IN TOW.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ASTORIA HANAC UNDER THE RFK??? HMMM???
LOOK FOR IN IN THE 19TH IF AND WHEN PAUL TAKES OVER
whats a stonewaller??????????
what is a stonewaller??
is that common lingo in whitestone?????
was not STONEWALLER related to a JACKSON ? Not the Five......
Back to Halloran! He's done nothing signifcant in his district since he took office and can't take a stand on any controvesial issue without taking a vote count and checking in with CB7, so if he goes, and he probably will, he won't be missed. However replacing one worthless puke with another worthless puke in northeast Queens is par for the course. Enjoy!
could you be detailed and specific on your charges against CM Halloran ?
I want to really know what you really know . why be so evasive ? Say it ...Say it....
i will tell you if you tell me.....
Can't wait 'til dat white boy goes to jail!
He's got da cutest butt cheeks ize evah saw!
The Vallones have played this guy like a fine tuned Violin. Sad part is he could be a good guy if he would think on his own and keep his little head in his robe
Must really be nice to have daddy the Silver lobbyist to get you an assembly seat and then plug you in for a council seat.
And I sat there and watched them "plow" my street 3x with the plow up in the air just above the snow. At least till the truck got stuck and the workers walked off to get coffee for the next 12 hours or so.
Good for Dan trying to buck the union stronghold.
