Really, this is what is considered an “exclusive” by that rag, Queens Press, you know the one where Leroy Comrie’s wife, Marcia, is a contributing editor. Meeks endorses de Blasio, BIG FUCK. The most corrupt elected official in Congress endorses the worst NYC Mayor of all time.
If Queens Press really wanted to do an exclusive, they would do a story on why the high and mighty Flake Family, Greater Allen Cathedral Church and local elected hacks like Meeks have not come forward to make a statement or comment why a 15 year old black girl was pimped out of Flake’s Greater Allen Cathedral Senior Residence for FOUR FUCKING MONTHS (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/11-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-plus-some-new-info-arises/). June 1st is when The Daily News broke this story and still NOT one person from this community has stood up and questioned WHY. And where the hell is public advocate James on this.
NOW that is an exclusive, not this bullshit ass-kissing pat yourself on the back crap from two fuck-up political hacks. Amazing, this shit is what passes for the water down journalism of today.
From Queens Press:
U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Jamaica) announced Wednesday afternoon that he would endorse Mayor Bill de Blasio in his bid for re-election this November.
In an exclusive to the PRESS of Southeast Queens, the congressman said that he will back the mayor due to his commitment to expanding affordable housing and providing long-needed transportation options for working families in the Rockaways.
“Bill de Blasio is making a real difference for hard-working families in our city,” Meeks said. “From helping rebuild after Hurricane Sandy to investing in accessible transportation through new NYC Ferry routes. By making available 70,000 preschool seats for every 4-year-old, paving the way for 100,000 good-paying jobs in the coming decade, our mayor has put New York City on the right track.”
Meeks’ endorsement is one of the first among Queens’ elected officials.
The mayor said that he was thrilled to receive the endorsement from the 19-year congressional veteran.
“New York is lucky to have Gregory Meeks representing our city’s residents in Congress,” de Blasio said. “Mr.Meeks has fought tirelessly for our city’s working families, helping secure fair housing, ensuring strong consumer protections and championing diversity in the public and private sectors. He’s been a strong ally in our housing recovery work after Hurricane Sandy and helped protect our coasts in Breezy Point.”
De Blasio has also gained the support of several union organizations throughout the five boroughs. He has been endorsed by the Working Families Party, United Federation of Teachers, SEIU 32BJ and several others.
The race for Gracie Mansion this year is a crowded one. De Blasio will face off against a number of challengers, including Republican businessman Paul Massey, Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, independant candidate and former cop Bo Dietl and Democrat Sal Albanese.
