    The Backroom Deal Controlling Our Election

     

    John Quaglione Backroom Politics Bay Ridge
     

     

    If you follow politics in Bay Ridge, you know that John Quaglione and others have a “backroom deal” which controls our election.

     

    John Quaglione told the paper in detail about the deal during the Summer. 

     

    In the newspaper today, Gerald Kassar, chairman of the Brooklyn Conservative Party Julianne Cuba that John Quaglione said she was lying in the article.”  Kassar denied knowing anything about the deal. Update: Mike Long, head of the Cnservatives said that Kassar knew about the deal as Kassar had to sign the paperwork for the placeholder candidate, John Bruno to get the position and Quaglione to take his spot. 

     

    You would think the Conservative Party would have an ounce of common sense and close the ballot line once John Bruno left it SINCE  John Quaglione blabbered about “the placeholder candidate”  to the press more than a month ago.  If the Conservative Party thought Quaglione was a good candidate, they would have given him the party line to begin with.

    Bay Ridge Street Renaming – October 21st

    There will be a street renaming in honor of  a Bay Ridge hero, Police Officer David Guttenberg. October 21, 2017 at 10 am. The corner of 86th and 7th Avenue will be named: “Patrolman David Guttenberg Way.”

     

    Two flyers – each shows a different time!!

     

     

     

     

    On December 28 1978, Guttenberg saw a double parked car on the street. He walked into a Dyker Auto Supply Shop Supply Shop  (on 86th and between 7th Avenue and Dalgren) to find the owner of the car and give him a chance to move the car (so he didn’t have to ticket him………..quite different than now) and there was a robbery.

     

    Guttenberg was married and had four children. Why did we take son long to acknowledge his service to our community?  

     

    But here is something cool:   “Christian Durante, a volunteer NYPD auxiliary police sergeant, had made it his mission to honor one of the predecessors beyond the precinct memorial section, which he created. He filed a motion in March for the city to co-name the northwest corner of 86th Street and 7th Avenue, “Patrolman David Guttenberg Way.  Durante, 27 was not alive when Officer Guttenberg was shot, but he patrols the same area that Officer Guttenberg did.”  

     

    Luis Torres, 33 & Pablo Costello were the men who were robbing the auto supply shop. Torres shot Officer Guttenberg, while Costello served as his lookout man outside the store. 

     

    Luis Torres died in prison in 1996.

     

    Pablo Costello, the accomplice served 35 years in prison and after many denied appeals, he was released in 2014 on a technicality.
