    John Quaglione & Empty Suit Politics


    Nicole Malliotakis & John Quaglione campaigned in a room with senior citizens. That is not news.


    John Quaglione sent the picture (below) to the Brooklyn Eagle and it was published with an article with an author. There was no one at the Brooklyn Eagle who wanted to put their name on a fluff story.



    This is the politics John Quaglione has become used it while working at the senator’s office. Press release politics is the reason nothing is getting done.


    The writer didn’t know where to go with the article so he/she included: “The Bay Ridge Center serves hundreds of senior citizens, offering the members hot meals, social service referrals, day trips, exercise classes, and computer courses.”  




    The Eagle writer was too chicken to tell the politicians: “This is not a story.”

    Bay Ridge Jewish Center Gets It Right



    Justin Brannan shared this sign which is hanging on the Bay Ridge Jewish Center. I’ve noticed the Bay Ridge Jewish Center “getting it right” for years. This place has been “getting it right” for a long time and I thought it was because of  the synagogue’s leader, but she left a few months ago. 

    Now it’s just a banner, but it’s words that include everyone and it’s the start of action. I wish all churches and houses of worship would join the Bay Ridge Jewish Center’s sentiment.  

    This sign of hate was seen on a home in Prospect Heights:



    In the Trump Era, signs are important. Spread love Brooklyn.

    John Quaglione Does Not Have Education as an Important Issue

    Wow, I didn’t realize this until today, but John Quaglione, a candidate for NYC Council does not have education as an issue.   How could anyone think of running in our area without having education as a focus?


    John Quaglione is running to represent Bay Ridge. Yet, on Quaglione’s website, the issue page has five other issues that he feels are important.



    The five issues Quaglione has on his site are: family health, public safety, transportation, quality of life and seniors.


    John Quaglione’s wife is an Assistant Principal, so it’s strange that he isn’t advocating for education.  


    Why is education not a leading issue for Quaglione?


    • Quaglione is on the board of directors at Saint Anselm Catholic Academy. Saint Anselm has less than 300 students in PreK-8th grade.  The pre-k Program at St. Anselm is large and funded by Mayor deBlasio. That program has probably helped keep the school open. Yet, Quaglione takes swipes at the deBlasio regularly. Most of the Catholic schools in Bay Ridge (if not all) are being supported by deBlasio’s Pre-K program. Why hasn’t Quaglione thanked the Mayor? 




    Our district is overcrowded and new public schools are needed.


    Strangely, Marty Golden continues to introduce bills for private school funding by allowing tax breaks to rich donors, who are giving money to schools. Watch Senator Golden talk with these men and see how they discuss the “nuclear option” in this video (starts around 6:00)  Even a Republican blog called out Golden on this.


    John Quaglione’s lack of support for public education shows he is out of touch with this district.  Failing to mention it as an issue for this community shows he doesn’t understand what parents in this community regard as important.
