Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Rev. Floyd Flake, Congressman Gregory Meeks, former Mayor David Dinkins, Council Member Elizabeth Crowley, Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder and the Queens County Democratic Committee, a who’s who of useless, corrupt, inept folks are endorsing Community Board 12 Chairperson Adrienne Adams who is running for Senate against incumbent James Sanders. With a sorry ass list like that, it is making me wonder about Adams, who seems to be a decent person, but that fucking crew can change one’s thinking. Hell, just Katz, Flake and Meeks would be enough, let alone the other losers in that list. Hell, just fucking Katz, a worthless Borough President if there ever was one and the last batches of them have been shit.
Seems like the same old shit to me.
These so-called leaders serve no one but themselves, just look at the sorry state of Jamaica.
From the Declaration of Independence:
“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,…”
DO YOU FUCKING SO-CALLED “LEADERS” EVEN GRASP THAT BASIC CONCEPT.

As the state senate primaries heat up for the summer, District 10 hopeful Adrienne Adams picked up yet another valuable endorsement, this time from none other than the Queens Borough President.
“Adrienne Adams has been a tireless advocate for our children and our schools for years,” said Melinda Katz. “She is a true leader who always stands up and fights for what is right. That’s why she successfully fought back against school co-locations in her community, and I know as our next state Senator she’ll not just fight for our children, but she will help our seniors and improve our quality of life. I am excited to endorse Adrienne Adams for State Senate because she is the right woman for the job and will be a tremendous ally in Albany.”
While there has been rifts in recent years between Community Board 12, which Adams is the Chairperson of, and the Borough President’s lack of action concerning the inundation of supportive housing as well as other issues affecting the predominantly black neighborhoods of southeast Queens, the two politicos share a mutual friendship that has developed over time.
“I’ve always admired how Queens Borough President Melinda Katz has been a strong fighter for all Queens’ families,” Adams said. “I have worked with the Borough President for years as chair of my community board and on the Queens Borough Public Library Board of Trustees and I look forward to working with her to keep moving Queens forward when I’m in the State Senate.”
Earlier this week, the senate hopeful also received support from Council members Barry Grodenchik (D-Oakland Gardens), Rory Lancman (D-Hillcrest) and Elizabeth Crowley (D-Glendale) as well as state assembly hopeful for District 23 Stacey Pheffer-Amato. The five met on Tuesday to discuss support for the Adams platform. A photo of the elected officials and Adams was tweeted via Grodenchik’s Twitter account.
Adams has picked up a number of high profile endorsements from all over the borough since announcing her campaign for senate in February. In addition to the Queens Borough President, she has received endorsements from former Mayor David Dinkins, former congressman and Reverend of the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral Floyd Flake in front of the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Floyd’s successor Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Jamaica) and Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Rockaway Park).
She has also received support from a number organizations including the Women’s Equality Party, the Stonewall Democratic Club of New York City and the Queens County Democratic Committee.
The primary, which looks to be the marquee race for Southeast Queens, will take place in September. Adams will be challenging Senate District 10 incumbent James Sanders Jr. Sanders won his seat in 2012 against then incumbent Shirley Huntley, who was under indictment at the time.
