Why is Andrew Gounardes Asking For Our Vote, When He Hasn’t Done His Job?

 

 

Yesterday, a Gounardes supporter asked me if I still thought Andrew Gounardes was a good person. 

I said, “No, he’s a politician – just like the others.”

Why is Andrew Gounardes asking people to vote for him when he doesn’t want to represent them? 

 

Brad Lander and Bill de Blasio continue to get a property tax break.  Yesterday, Lander showed up in Bay Ridge for Gounardes’ kick-off party because Lander supports Gounardes not doing anything on property taxes.

Eight months ago, I couldn’t find his office and I would consider myself pretty connect to the Internet and politicians. I wanted to speak to him about his override of Community Board 10 and I just got machines and empty offices.  I don’t see that being any different for a senior in our area as Gounardes works out of Brannan’s old office and didn’t bother to purchase a sign. When a parent walked in to talk to Brannan last month, Gounardes’ staff didn’t offer her help – they told her Brannan’s new office address.

 

 

 

This community knows the politics of Mark Treyger. In the last election, Gounardes club, The Bay Ridge Democrats refused Treyger’s candidate instead of who the people wanted – Mathylde Frontus. What changed? Nothing for Bay Ridge, except Andrew Gounardes became a sellout politician. 

Finally, Mike Ginaris showed up yesterday. Ginaris is leading a group of senators in changing the bail law that was made in the Senator. Ginaris knows Gounardes is not part of that group. Twenty blocks away from this pol party a woman was sexually assaulted – her attacker was led out do to the changes in bail reform. She wasn’t mentioned yesterday because she is no one to these politicians.

Cellary is Coming to 3rd Avenue

 

The Cellary is coming to 3rd Avenue. While we hoped for a cool wine bar at this end of Bay Ridge, it appears to be a liquor store.

 

 

 

Bay Ridge Bikes was at this location, 8916 – 3rd Avenue for many years.

No Bullets at KFC – Fake News

 

 

 

 

The glass window at KFC was broken. Someone shared the picture on Facebook and asked if people knew what happened. The Internet chimed in with a lot of emotion and it was implied that the glass was shot out. 

 

There was no shooting.  

 

 

Before the truth came out, a few Bay Ridginals questioned why someone would assume there was a shooting and suggested people go and ask the fast food place. 

 

 

One Ridgite had the lowdown:   “I talked to the manager about this the other day. The windows on the parking lot side got smashed by a car, the windows on the 92nd side were smashed by some kids with a brick. The car smash happened first then later in the afternoon the kids smashed the window.”

 

An establishment owner on that block wrote: “Someone threw a brick at the window and ran away late Saturday night last weekend. My husband and I observed it and called 911. The local precinct was on it within minutes. Those of you saying it was bullet holes or that this is pervasive: stop needlessly fear-mongering. My husband owns a business on that block, first time we’ve seen anything like this happen.” 

 

On Facebook, it’s who can be the most dramatic and get the online game going.  It’s also a fear-mongering technique – that’s been  caught on before.
