This guy had to have been the most visible in Queens. He had a passion for serving his constituents and for doing the right thing. Can't say that for other elected officials .
This is very odd. Goldfeder is one of the most visibly active elected officials. And the family time rationale is usually the default excuse for shady types who got or are about to get caught doing illegal deeds.
Let's hope not,although this pretty much will kill the proposal for reviving the abandoned rockaway line for transit use and lead to the eventual predator developer approved queensway bullshit, since Goldfeder was heavily lobbying for it.
Yet another notch for the Gentrification Industrial Complex. This is quite disappointing.
He most definitely is the bigger and better person when compared to his colleague Ron Kim.
Can it be? A NYS legislature member who leaves office other than by death or scandal?
He's the man, the man with the Midas touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold finger
Beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don't go in
That might have been funny if you wrote germane lyrics that ended with the 'etter' sound.
Another piece of Queens Crap that didn't do much. will he go to work in real estate for his landlord, Marcovici? aka 95-01 LLC the shell company that owns apartment buildings, assisted living facilities and the new monstrosity being built on the Shore Front at Beach 94th Street in Rockaway Beach.
If we had term limits, his colleagues would be also stepping down after four terms.
He probably is getting a job for which his main qualification is he needs money and he did his new employer a biggie.

The allure of profiting from the private sector after serving the public in the elected office.
I saw that behemoth also on 94th (why don't these newcomers try to get apartments in the nearby projects). It's bad enough that the boardwalk is now a lame version of the Hamptons or goddamn gentrified Brooklyn™ by the atlantic,
You work for the private sector, right JQ? For money?
Yeah, it's totally the same, anonanus. Dishwashers and lobbyists. Delivery people and lawyers. We all have skin in the game in the machinations of government and politics and where the funding goes.
Apples and oranges I believe it's called.
A legend in his own mind but during his brief four years a lot of sound and fury with no real accomplishments is his legacy. The sheeple in that district confuse constant press and showing up to pat himself on the back with real work done.
I liked him. My friends in Far Rockaway tell me he's been responsive. Too bad, there are far far worse people in Albany we need to get rid of.
Oh please, he was just another sponsored shill for his Jewish constituency.
No wonder your friends in Far Rockaway tell you he's responsive. They're all on drugs or terrified of the gang bangers.
Look at who is being photographed with him. The professional Hurricane Sandy Scam Artist who enjoys his protection for her and her crack dealing boyfriend.
Please tell me what he did besides spend our tax dollars on a ridiculous Xmas Card of him on a surfboard. or maybe that gold airplane his staffers built for some parade behind his office on Rockaway Beach Blvd. Again, that was our tax dollars. They could have been assisting constituents.
Goldfedder doesn't help the people who voted him into office. His staff makes a business out of NOT helping the people in his district.
Crappy, he deserves a Queens Crap Award as Mr. Do Nothing.
Needing time off to spend with family? Can someone please translate. Nothing too graphic please.
