Unlike in Community Board 8 district, which they are actually doing something to finally combat that garbage problem on Hillside Avenue (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2016/06/20/hillside-avenue-getting-clean-initiative-to-fight-the-garbage-problem-resident-in-that-area-has-a-truthful-message-to-his-fellow-immigrants/) the powers that be in District 12 (Community Board 12, Senator Leroy Comrie, Councilman Ruben Wills & I. Daneek Miller, Assembly Member Alicia Hyndman, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and the many church leaders, whose blocks have mounds of garbage) have turned a complete blind eye to the garbage problem, the illegal commercial truck parking, the illegal truck driving on residential streets, the illegal blocking of sidewalks by stores on Jamaica Ave, the awful & dangerous conditions of our streets, the thug auto body shops that have turned our community into an open air junkyard and unlicensed cars scattered all over. Oh, they know it is there, they have just not properly addressed any of this or taken actions to stop all this nonsense which has been going on for years and much of it in the same damn places over and over again. You know DAMN well NONE of this would take place in Forest Hills, so why Jamaica.
So again I will ask who is getting paid off to look the other way? You have all taken ONE BIG SHIT on this community by your turning a blind eye, not only your inactivity to not only address the problems, but solve them. You are disgraceful and the community and the photos below are PROOF of TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. You can blame the people (and some businesses) BUT you are supposed to be the public servants and you have not done your jobs at all for years and decades with these ongoing issues. AND MEDIA, why are you not asking the hard questions with these “leaders” and asking WHY and demanding a legit answer. You need to hold these elected officials ACCOUNTABLE and you are not doing that.
