ELMONT NY:  “All I could do was pray for the children on the ground as my son cried in the back seat” said Mimi Pierre-Johnson. Mimi had just picked up her son from Dutch Broadway Elementary School and was traveling westbound on Dutch Broadway when they saw the car hit the children. “It's time we figure out how to keep Elmont's students safe when they are walking to [and from] school.”

Governor Cuomo's office was busy herding local elected personel, their employees, Islander fans and numerious other organizations and non-Elmont residents to “come stand with him” as he gave away some of the most prized real estate in the state to his wealthy donor. The 'con'trivance was convened at 10:15AM today at Belmont Park in Elmont, a time of day guaranteed to suppress attendance by hard working local residents.

Interestingly, as we learn more about the Who-is-Who that attended the 'con'trivance it's clear from their social media postings that many were there 'for selfies', selfies with the Governor of the State of New York.  When did we make these elected personnel celebrities? SMH!

One resident echoed the aforementioned it this way, “He [Cuomo] knows we are a hard working middle class community and he picked a time of day that guaranteed no one would be home to show their opposition”.

Rather than disrupt their work schedules, residents must now turn to the courts and the ballot for redress. #elmontvotes

It's obvious that the Empire State Development Corp. (ESD) has circumvented the community by wilfully not complying with the Urban Development Corporation Act [(UDCA)].  Belmont Park is owned by the People of the State of New York and Empire State Development Corp has a fiduciary responsibility to follow the UDCA.

“It is our intention to pursue any and all legal options at our disposal to ensure that both the spirit and letter of UDCA is followed." says residents who heard about the land giveaway by the Governor.

"Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with REDACTED, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state. With Kavanaugh's hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me." - Christine Blasey Forde
After the assault, I wasn't sure what had actually happened but the pain spoke volumes. The shame was overwhelming. Self-doubt and confusion kept me from turning to my family or friends as I normally did. I felt completely alone, unable to trust anyone, including myself.” - Andrea Constand
