About Hettie Powell for City Council
Hello. My name is Hettie Powell and I am a democratic candidate for City Council District 28. I’m asking for your support. Elections matter. Our community matters. And in these tough times, who you choose to represent you in the City Council matters. Your vote means that I can provide the funds for the much needed services that will move our wonderfully diverse community forward. A community that I have made my home for over 30 years. A community I believe in. In his first inaugural address President Barack Obama said, “Everywhere we look, there is work to be done.” And that is still true today. When I am elected to the City Council I will bring my energy, my experience and my belief in our community to City Hall, and I will work to make our community a stronger and better place. I share your vision for a meaningful educational experience for our youth and for fully funded services for our seniors; for a vibrant economy that provides jobs for those that need them, and for a place where we can all enjoy peace and prosperity. There is still work to be done, but together, I believe, we can create a better tomorrow.
I cannot imagine that Wills would be running again, especially since he is supposed to have a trial this month for his corruption charges, but lets go a little over this major SE Queens douche bag, call it:
Ruben “Asshole” Wills 101 Course:
In 1996, the Manhattan district attorney’s office arrested Wills on charges of petty larceny, criminal trespass third-degree and criminal mischief fourth degree – all misdemeanors. While working at a West Broadway store in Chinatown, it appears he got into a money dispute with the owner. He is charged with breaking into the store, damaging a wall and removing a fan and track lighting, records show.
In 2003, Wills served as the special assistant to City Council Member Leroy Comrie, and later he served as chief of staff to State Senator Shirley Huntley. (So as you can see he got his early political start working with a MAJOR DO NOTHING, Comrie & another SE Queens Crook (Shirley Huntley, where I am sure he learned the corruption ropes.)
n March 2011, Wills responded to two arrest warrants for incidents that occurred over a decade earlier. The first warrant was issued in 1998 for an incident that occurred in 1996. In November 2011, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief. Wills admitted to stealing items and damaging property in an incident that he called a business dispute. The conviction resulted in no jail time or probation, but Wills had to pay restitution totaling $3,000 and perform 3 days of community service.
The second warrant was for not appearing on scheduled court date in 2002 for an arrest in Nassau County dating back to 2000. The charge was for operating an unlicensed construction business, also a misdemeanor. A homeowner hired Wills’ company, R&W Painting, to install and paint steel doors. She contends R&W left her home a mess and didn’t pay an electrician subcontractor, who then tried to slap a lien on her house.
On May 7, 2014, Wills was arrested as part of a corruption investigation. The charges included multiple counts of fraud and grand larceny in connection with more than $30,000 in public funds that went missing from a charity he ran.
On February 2, 2015 he was arrested again and charged with five felony counts of failing to disclose financial dealings on five separate disclosure reports filed with the city’s Conflicts of Interest Board between 2012 and 2014.
The resolution of the cases from 2014 and 2015 has been delayed because Wills’ lawyer was removed from the latter case due to a potential conflict of interest, and because of Wills’ ongoing medical problems. Since his indictment in May 2014, Wills has also missed nearly half of his City Council meetings and hearings. (ONGOING MEDICAL PROBLEM, I did not now that ASSITIS was a medical condition).
And let’s not forget that this major douche is also a deadbeat dad as well (http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/queens-city-councilman-ruben-wills-acknowledges-outstanding-arrest-warrants-article-1.122058).
So this is who you idiot folks voted for TWICE. A deadbeat dad, a crook, a criminal, a thief, a douche bag and a MAJOR GHETTO ASSHOLE.
NOW GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE WILLS.
