    Disclosure Isn’t Important to Kevin Peter Carroll

     

    Kevin Peter Carroll is running to be councilman of Bay Ridge. Today he shared his endorsements on Twitter today. Yet he let some important information out. Robert Carroll is listed, yet Kevin doesn’t say that Robert is his cousin on the endorsement list.  That would be important for residents to know because we shouldn’t accept endorsements between family members.  There is a union listed on Carroll’s endorsement list. The union is for custodial engineers that Carroll’s father worked for. I went to the union website and  there is a Carroll on there as well. I have no idea if they are related, but because Kevin didn’t disclose that info about his cousin, it made me look.

     

    Stephen Levin is listed on the endorsements. Kevin doesn’t mention that Levin is his boss. His Linkedin profile shows it though:

     

     

    Of course Kevin’s political club, Brooklyn Democrats for Change has endorsed him. In prior elections that Club has endorsed candidates from Coney Island, rather than Bay Ridge.   The club also endorsed IDC member, Diane Savino. The IDC are a group of senators who were elected as Democrats, but vote with the Republicans. Most people wouldn’t know this if they didn’t look closely.

     

    The strangest endorsement on Kevin’s list was from The Victory Fund in May – see here

     

    You will also notice that most of the endorsements of from politicians that don’t have anything to do with Bay Ridge. Although Kevin Peter Carroll endorsed Mark Treyger to be Bay Ridge district leader, Treyger didn’t endorse Kevin.  Kevin endorsed Pam Harris for Assembly, but Pam Harris didn’t endorse him either (more info).

    Khader El-Yateem Why Hasn’t He Promoted Culture in Bay Ridge Before Now

    Tonight, Khader El-Yateem will have an artist at his table on 78th Street doing  henna tattoos during the Summer Stroll. Why hasn’t he as a the leader of a church in Bay Ridge promoted culture in our community before now? El-Yateem is the pastor of the Salam Arabic Church which has never invited residents in to celebrate culture. Other churches in Bay Ridge have events, but the Salem Arabic Church doesn’t.

    Brooklyn artist, Alicia Degener – BayRidge Coasters – Great Gift

    At Summer Stroll tonight on 80th and 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn artist, Alicia Degener will have some of her work including these beautiful Bay Ridge coaster. I’m thinking they would make a great gift for someone who loves Bay Ridge, the bridge or someone who has left Bay Ridge and could use a sweet reminder.

    This is just too cool. The Firefly is a relatively new (and great) restaurant in Bay Ridge. I love how they went out of their way to plan something special for kids at the Summer Stroll. The owners obviously get the Bay Ridge community vibe.

    RIP Djamila Requieghmuda – Bay Ridge Resident


    Djamila Requieghmuda, a 55 year old resident of Bay Ridge was found dead in the Bronx at a furniture restoration store where her ex-husband worked (see here) on Thursday, July 20th (see here). People in the building reported that they heard screaming and called the police. Djamila’s body was found with a blanket over it and she had trama to her head.  See more: here

     

    Djamila was last seen near her home in Bay Ridge on Wednesday (see video). Her 23 year old daughter reported her mother missing on Wednesday and told police that her dad about prior incidents of violence and threats.  Djamila’s ex-husband had threatened to kill her (see here). In September 2016, he had broken three windows at her home and the police were called. (see here). At first he was a missing suspect, but cops discovered the following day that he hung himself in a closet. (see here). The news is now saying they don’t know if this is a murder/suicide or a double murder. The police are still investigating. 

     

    As this situation wasn’t horrible enough, there are two younger siblings to the 23 year old daughter – one teenage son and a 14 year old daughter who just lost both their parents in 24 hours. The oldest daughter was recently accepted into medical school.

     

    Many prayers for the three children.  A Go Fund Me page has been started for the children – see here

     

    RIP Djamila Requieghmuda.
