ENOUGH WITH THE BULLSHIT ACCOLADES ABOUT DEAD FORMER QUEENS BP HELEN MARSHALL WHO WAS NOTHING BUT A FUCKING FRAUD

Queen Borough President Helen Marshall. “Dazed & Confused.”

Doesn’t matter Republican or Democrats, but these elected hacks are always stating how great these deceased frauds, like Helen Marshal are, when in reality THEY WERE NOT. Marshall along with waiting for her to drop dead, another Queens BP hack, Claire “Bulldog” Schulman, were HACKS of epic proportions who could care less about Queens or their constituents and who were in the pockets of the Real Estate Lobby and who knows how much in kickbacks these slugs got. I mean below is where dead Marshall spent her last couple of years in California. Pretty nice, a gated community.

The article below states:

Helen Marshall has left a legacy that touched thousands in the borough and reached across the city to the state.

She certainly did, this kind of legacy:

41505 Carlotta Drive, Palm Desert CA

Again here is TRUTH & REALITY, not the bile and BS coming from hack elected officials mouths, like BP Melinda Katz (cut from the same cloth), who praise what a wonderful public servant Marshall was. BUT us folks who are not the typical Queens Sheeple who follow every single word these hacks say and get bamboozled in the process, know better.

So take a look at one of your hack fearless leaders. The legacy of Helen Marshall, Civic Virtue & Steinway Mansion, gone & partial destroyed, respectively. Brooklyn would not treat their history as the a-hole electeds of Queens do. MARSHALL, in a long line of fraud Borough Presidents, who sold this borough out to the highest developer and crapped on the people.

MEDUSA IS DEAD.

And remember you fucking hacks.

From Queens Times Ledger:

Helen Marshall remembered as champion of libraries

Borough Hall is planning a celebration of life to remember former Borough President Helen Marhall’s life after she died last weekend at 87.

 

Helen Marshall has left a legacy that touched thousands in the borough and reached across the city to the state.

The funeral for former Borough President Helen Marshall will be private but a New York memorial service is currently being planned and will be announced at a later date. The tribute may be held in the $23 million Helen Marshall Cultural Center, the 11,000-square-foot atrium at Borough Hall which was dedicated last September.

Marshall, who served as Queens borough president for 12 years after many nearly two decades as a Democratic lawmaker at the city and state levels, died Saturday in a Palm Desert, Calif. hospice. She was 87.

A former teacher, she spent her years in public office with a sharp focus on education and expanding library services in Queens.

Marshall was the first African-American borough president of Queens and the second woman to occupy the post in the most ethnically diverse county in the country.

“Helen Marshall was a larger-than-life figure in the civic life of Queens and the State of New York,” said Melinda Katz, who succeeded Marshall as the borough president. “During her decades in public life, Helen fought tenaciously to improve our children’s schools, to address seemingly intractable quality-of-life issues and to secure a fair share of City resources for Queens.”

When Marshall first became borough president in 2001 she had a list of priorities. “We lovingly dubbed it the Marshall plan for Queens,” former Chief of Staff Alexandra Rose said. Rosa said Marshall set up the War Room, a hold-over from the administration of previous Borough President Claire Shulman, where she and her staff developed strategy on how to address overcrowded schools, and the Green Room for working on issues involving parks and open space.

“She spent more than half her life in public service, but she was more than just a politician, she was a wonderful human being,” Shulman said. “She treated everyone who came to her with their problems with great care. She was just a very, very, very kind-hearted woman and a really hardworking woman.”

Born in the Bronx on Sept. 30, 1929, she was educated at Queens College and taught until she became the first director of the Langston Hughes Library in Corona.

“Helen’s legacy as the champion of East Elmhurst, Corona and all of Queens goes back for more than 30 years. Her hard work led to the establishment of many emblematic institutions in our community, including Langston Hughes Community Library & Cultural Center and Elmcor Youth & Adult Activities, Inc,” City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland (D-East Elmhurst) said. “Helen changed the lives of thousands of Queens residents, including my own. Helen launched my political career when she appointed me at 14 years old to serve on the Corona Youth Council. She was a mentor, a friend, but most of all, she was family. I am honored to occupy the City Council seat that she once held.”

Marshall was a state Assemblywoman from 1983 until 1991, then ran for a seat in the City Council, where she served from 1992 to 2001.

“Helen Marshall was as big-hearted, dynamic and brave as the borough of Queens, which she represented with such determined grace for three decades in many roles,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Marshall, who was known as simply Helen to her colleagues and constituents, directed the affairs of Queens County from Borough Hall for three consecutive terms from 2002 to 2014. It was often noted that Marshall’s terms were bookended by the tragedies of the Sept. 11 attacks and Superstorm Sandy.

“Our borough lost one of its biggest champions, but she will continue to live on in our hearts and her presence will continue to be felt throughout the countless communities she touched,” U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-Jackson Heights) said. “In her more than three decades of public service she broke barriers, embraced the strength of our diversity, and guided our borough through unprecedented growth. She also fought hard to ensure we got our fair share and she is leaving behind an incredible legacy of helping those in need.”

In 2013, the Center for an Urban Future reported that Marshall had directed more funding towards the borough’s library projects that the previous four borough presidents combined.

“Queens Library would not be the world-class library system it is today without Helen,” Queens Library President Dennis Walcott said. “She believed in libraries as places where communities are empowered and inspired, where children can nurture a love of learning and discovery and where adults can gain the skills they need to adapt to a changing workforce. Her passion for libraries drove her to secure a record amount of capital funding to upgrade, expand or improve many of the 62 libraries throughout our system and to continue to open new ones.”

Marshall embraced her time as the chief executive of the nation’s most diverse county. One of her favorite accomplishments was creating the Queens General Assembly, a cross-cultural exchange established in 2013.

“She founded the Queens General Assembly to give every community in our borough a seat at the table and she created the Borough Hall Immigration Task Force to help new arrivals to our country,” Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Fresh Meadows) said. “We are all building on the foundation she helped lay.”

On her page on the History Makers website, the nation’s largest African American video and oral history collection preserving and sharing the life stories of thousands of African Americans, Marshall’s favorite quote is featured.

“If you see Queens, you see the world,” she said.

Marshall is survived by her two children, Donald Jr. and Agnes Marie. Her husband, Donald, died recently.

Donations can be made in the name of Helen M. Marshall to Elmcor Youth & Adult Activities, Inc. at 33-16 108th Street, Corona 11368. Cards and letters of condolences can be sent to the Marshall family at 31-17 Buell St., East Elmhurst, NY, 11369.

 

BOROUGH HALL ANNOUNCES NEW MEMORIAL FOR RECENTLY DECEASED QUEENS BOROUGH PRESIDENT, HELEN MARSHALL

Queens Borough Hall celebrated a memorial honoring one of Queens’ most beloved public servants.

Presented by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, the “Helen Marshall  Memorial Crapper” opened its doors for the first time at 11 a.m. The gold crapper— which is named after Katz’s predecessor and 18th borough president Helen Marshall — will be used for exhibits, entertainment and civic events within Borough Hall.

“It’s going to be a place where her legacy is going to thrive. Kids are going to come here and do productions, seniors are going to use this,” Katz told NY1.

QUEENS HOMELESS SHELTER ARMAGEDDON PART 2: 40 HOMELESS HOTEL SHELTERS IN QUEENS WAY MORE THAN ANY OTHER BOROUGH – BP MELINDA KATA “WHERE ARE YOU”

Just one sentence is needed for this:

“If it’s good for families, it’s good for Queens,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.katz crap

——————————

From Queens Crap & NY1:

40 hotels in Queens serve as shelters

From NY1:

The mayor is expected to unveil his homelessness plan on Tuesday. But before that, the city gave NY1 data revealing where all of the city’s homeless shelters are located and which neighborhoods are more burdened than others.

Queens is a hotbed of hotels turned into homeless shelters.

For the first time, thanks to a Freedom of Information Law request, NY1 is getting a look at where all of the approximately 650 sites that house the homeless actually are.

We uncovered most of the hotels are in Queens.

And de Blasio’s solution? Build 90 more permanent shelters throughout the city so his wealthy friends can continue to get rich off poor people’s misery. We wouldn’t want to actually reduce the number of homeless, now.

QUEENS BP KATZ PUTS IN HER TWO CENTS ON WILLETS POINT CLEAN-UP – BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NEW WILLETS POINTS IN JAMAICA, MERRICK BLVD – A FUCKING DISGRACE

Garbage & Cars6.18.16 058Sure the all the crappy auto shops in Willets Point have been shut down as the City begins another huge money project, but where have they gone. Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what.

Well, Katz, how about the New Willets Point in Jamaica on Merrick Blvd where thug auto body shops have turned that area into a fucking mess of junked and unlicensed vehicles all over Merrick Blvd and the sidewalks and many of the residential side streets. And since Merrick is a heavily traveled road of cars, taxi, liver vans, buses, etc, allow these shops to take up the entire right land in certain section causing a hazardous condition plus bottle necking, I would think Katz who has made trips to Jamaica to talk about the Jamaica Now Action Plan, would speak up about this mess. I mean the local elected officials like Senator Comrie and Councilman Miller have not uttered one word about this disgrace, especially since the area has churches, a senior citizen apartment complex and residential homes are all around.

BUT nope, nothing from the Evil White Queens and her ebony clown posse. Just more ghetto nonsense where respect and pride are harder to find than a unicorn or a hard working Jamaica elected official. START ENFORCING LAWS with these Auto Body Shops which have completely taken control of this area. SO WHERE  THE HELL ARE YOU KATZ. Would you allow this SHIT in your neighborhood? AND where are the so-called black leaders on this issue that stares all of you in the face every single day. Garbage & Cars6.18.16 115Garbage & Cars6.18.16 111

From AM New York:

willetsStart cleanup to clear path for Willets Pt.

It’s quiet at Willets Point. The New York Mets are at spring training in Florida. And most of the auto body shops on 126th Street, across from Citi Field, are closed, with demolition of the ramshackle buildings underway.

While that’s progress, the former industrial zone tucked away in a corner of Corona is a long way from being the hub of economic activity NYC officials envisioned a decade ago. The 62 acres just beyond the stadium’s rightfield wall could and should be a regional centerpiece, home to a retail mall and a hotel, to jobs and economic development, to sports and entertainment, and to affordable housing.

Besides the seasonal flow of Mets fans, Willets Point would become a destination if the proposed AirTrain to LaGuardia gets off the drawing boards. No matter what the vision, the site remains a cesspool of unsewered property, unpaved roads and land in desperate need of environmental remediation.

Part of the problem with advancing the overall development of Willets Point is that it is mired in legal battles over whether the Citi Field parking lot is parkland and can’t be used as the site of a mall. The state Court of Appeals will hear arguments in the case on April 25.

Still, there is much NYC can do. Beyond ongoing demolition, there’s significant cleanup and infrastructure needed to prepare for new construction. The city’s Economic Development Corp. said most of the remediation will not begin until the lawsuit is settled and final plans are agreed upon by the city and the developers, a combination of Related Companies and Sterling Equities, which owns the Mets.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what. Developers and city officials should do more now. That would hasten an already long-delayed timetable, and would be a sign that they’re committed to the project.

Now is the time to start. The city and the developers have to find a way to move Willets Point forward.
