COUNCILMAN COMRIE HOST STREET NAMING CEREMONY FOR CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST – HOW ABOUT CLEANING UP THE STREETS FIRST

Although our local elected leaders do pretty much nothing to improve the quality of life in Jamaica, you certainly cannot say that they will pass up  any opportunity for a photo op.

This past Saturday, Councilman Leroy Comrie, along side others, including corrupt and crooked senator, Malcolm Smith (isn’t it time to just step down from office instead of making a bigger ass out of yourself than you already have) hosted a street naming ceremony, which Comrie unveiled, Jefferson Diggs Way, named after the late Jamaica civil rights activist, Jefferson Diggs, who lived at the corner of 88th Avenue and 178th Street. While this ceremony was taking place, 2 blocks away, I was doing my own photo-op, a garbage strewn street near a vacant lot.

While Comrie and Crew were doing their photo-op street naming ceremony, I snapped this photo just two blocks away.

Diggs was an aide to former Councilmember Archie Spigner and then later Comrie. Comrie went on to say about Diggs “He helped to improve the quality of life for many residents and I am pleased to have been able to honor him with this street co-naming”.  Improved the quality of life for many residents, something that our dear Comrie has not done in 12 years in office nor the arrogant Senator Smith or any of the other local motley crew of elected officials.

What I do not get, if Diggs was so much for improving the quality of life for so many residents, why has Jamaica looked like shit for so damn long. And Mr. Comrie and crew, before you do another street cleaning ceremony, how about first cleaning up all the streets in Jamaica of all the garbage, trash and litter. Now that would certainly  help improve the quality of life for many residents, not some damn street naming ceremony. Hopefully the street named after Mr. Diggs was not littered with bay diapers, fast food container, Arizona Ice Tea cans and dog shit, like the  streets two blocks away.

Just another bullshit ceremony, while our quality of life in Jamaica keeps going down hill.???????????????????????????????

    As an FYI- Jefferson Diggs, one of the early US Civil Rights ‘Woolworth sit in’ youth arrested, as noted in the article attached, and Judge Laura Diggs Blackburn are siblings. The Diggs /Blackburn family are longtime activist in the Jamaica, Queens justice system, politics and community, and James Diggs deserves a street to be Co Named after him and they deserve to be present in a ceremony for their honored family member.

    • First off the post has nothing to do with having a street named after Jefferson Diggs (who I am familiar with his background), my post was on Councilman Leroy Comrie who seems to attend ceremonies and photo-ops all the time at the expense of the quality of life issues in the community of Jamaica which are deplorable and he has done very little in regards to them.

      Also as I said while he was at the ceremony, I was a couple blocks away taking photos of a majorly garbage strewn sidewalk that looked like garbage had been dumped for months. In regards to Laura Blackburn, I had not idea that she was the sister of Jefferson Diggs and I am not saying anything about family attending. I am pointing out that in the photo with Comrie were corrupt Senator Malcolm Smith, who eventually will more than likely be heading to jail and Laura Blackburne, who was kicked out of her office as Supreme Court Justice for unethical conduct. No one is saying anything in regards to a street being named after Diggs or family members attending. You obviously seemed to miss the entire point of the blog.
