Why Doesn’t Paula Katinas Want Bay Ridge to Know About Steve Saperstein?

 

Paula Katinas Steve Saperstein
 

 

Paula Katinas sat in the front row of the Dyker Heights Civic Association Debate. Yet, Katina’s retelling of the debate was quite different from what happened, particularly where it concerns Steve Saperstein.

 

Did Paula Katinas think Steve Saperstein and/or his team were playing politics at the debate?  It was obvious that they did.

 

Paula Katinas shared online:

 

 

 

Katina’s article  left out that Joel from Seagate asked a question.  Joel from Seagate came to a very poorly advertised debate that even I didn’t know about until right before it happened. Joel came to the debate to ask Dr. Mathylde a question about Louis Farrakhan.  Dr. Frontus was so poised in answering his question. She knew and everyone else knew it was a planted question as the man sitting next to Joel was wearing a Steve Saperstein shirt – seen here.

 

 

Other people commented on twitter about it:

 

 

 

 

After Dr. Frontus answered the question stating she didn’t know the man, Steve interjected that he me the man who asked the question (Really Steve, we couldn’t figure that at).  Saperstein should have been embarrassed that his team went low in front of everyone, while Dr. Frontus was professional and kept to the discussion on the communities’ needs.  Making up nonsense about his opponent shows he is just interested in playing politics.

 

Did the Brooklyn Reporter  leave out the truth because they are trying to control our election?  Or is it Paula Katinas that is trying to control the election?  Whose pulling Katinas strings that an experience political reporter would leave out key information like that?  Last week, we saw Paula Katinas incorrectly tell us about a NEW tax bill Malliotakis introduced in the NY Assembly – when I asked for the bill number Katinas and Malliotakis were silent.

 

We should be able to have #TruthInTheNews in Bay Ridge. 

 

 

A recording will be shared here shortly  so you can hear the truth.

Paws Truly Pet Store in Bay Ridge is Closing

 

 

If you live in Bay Ridge and have a pet, you know Paws Truly. It is one of the best stores in the neighborhood and we were sad to see the ‘For Rent’ sign in the window.

 

The owners are the nicest people and we will miss them and their adorable dog, Seamus!

 

A few of stores and restaurants have announced that they are closing recently.

The 68th Precinct Captured Him!

 


 



 

Bay Ridge resident, 28-year-old, Matthew Wohlfahr was arrested.

 

Story here, here and here.

 

Wohlfahr asked young girls for directions and then exposed himself to them when they answered him.  The first incident happened at 92nd St. and Ridge Boulevard. The second incident happened at Colonial Road and 78th Street.

 

The MTA said he was a probationary bus driver and he has been taken out of service without pay.  

 

Credit should be given to the sharp kids who noticed he was wearing MTA gear.

 

The paper stated that Wohlfahr  was charged with grand larceny, endangering the welfare of a child and public lewdness.

Jerry Kassar Attacked a Retired NYPD Officer and Resident in The Brooklyn Spectator

 

 

Jerry Kassar, Vice Chairman of the NYS Conservative Party and currently chief-of-staff for Senator Marty Golden published a new rant this week in the Brooklyn Spectator (page 20). I complained to the paper before about Jerry’s column because  Jerry fails to disclose his position and because Kassar wrote inaccurate information in favor of his boss before.

 

Not Much Common Sense This Week Jerry

 

  • Jerry Kassar “forgot” to disclose that he works for Senator Marty Golden. Somehow Jerry doesn’t think that it is important to readers of the paper to know his relationship to the senator. Yet, The Brooklyn Spectator has a responsibility to the community to supply this information as Kassar’s relationship with Senator Golden does not make him the most reliable source for information. While labeling the top of his article as ‘Opinion’ was a step in the right direction, disclosure is still necessary.

 

  • Kassar used his article in The Brooklyn Spectator to attack Peter Killian, a former NYPD officer who lives in Bay Ridge. Killian served as the moderator at the AARP debate at the Senior Center. I have been following politics in this community for many years. I have never heard anyone complain about Killian as the debate moderator. It was noted by the public, that Killian served as the debate moderator for at least 10 years. Senator Marty Golden performed poorly at this debate because residents are aware he isn’t representing this community well.  Kassar’s attack of Killian’s performance was unnecessary and an obvious ploy to help his boss.

 

* Neighbors in Bay Ridge spoke out for Peter Killian because people love him.  Peter Killian was the first NYPD officer in our community to receive a bullet-proof vest from the community!  The Ridge Chorale raised the money to purchase the vest because the police department didn’t have the money. Although I don’t know Killian personally, I have spoken with him at different events in Bay Ridge. He is a true gentleman and kind-hearted man. The Brooklyn Spectator should not have allowed Jerry Kassar to question Killian’s integrity at being a fair and honest moderator, unless that information was checked and could be backed up with another source.

 

  • Interestingly, Kassar wrote that Peter Killian supplied the candidates with the questions for the debate. I often wondered about this, as Senator Golden often goes into the same old rant. Why wouldn’t Senator Golden prepare something new if he had the questions beforehand?

 

  • After the prepared questions were over, the debate allowed the audience to ask questions. Mallory McMahon got up to ask a question of the candidate.  Residents got to hear that McMahon tried to contact Senator Golden for months to speak about education and Senator Golden refused to meet with her. (More info about it here) At the debate, Senator Golden showed his true colors to the community by responding to McMahon’s question with, “Mallory I’m too busy for you.”  Senator Golden thought he could arrogantly say that in a small room of people in Bay Ridge. Golden tried to convince the room that it was okay for him to ignore a resident’s question because she wasn’t a Republican, like he is. Senator Golden’s arrogant words vibrated through the community in papers and online. Everyone asked, “What happened to Marty Golden?”  People were surprised that such an arrogant politician is representing them. See the video of the rude Senator here

 

Did Marty Golden and Jerry Kassar think that all of the audiences’ questions should be supplied to Marty? It appears that Marty doesn’t want Bay Ridge to question him and what he hasn’t done for this community. 

 

Kassar complained that the questions at the debate were not topics that were related to senior citizens. This event was open to everyone. I would think most seniors in the area would want Bay Ridge schools to receive the proper funding, especially since their grandchildren attend them. Kassar knows Marty didn’t do his job in bringing home the state funds.

 


Jerry Kassar tried to save his boss’ reputation in The Spectator by attacking Killian and McMahon. Kassar claimed that special treatment was given to McMahon by Killian. Other journalists were present at the debate and can confirm the debate format for the Brooklyn Spectator. McMahon didn’t know the moderator. She was at the debate as a resident who wanted to hear from the candidates. Kassar used the Brooklyn Spectator to attack McMahon because McMahon had spoken out and shown that Marty Golden is not the smiling, helpful politician he once was. Kassar wants to silence Mallory McMahon’s views.  McMahon’s character should not have been questioned and unchecked in the paper, as she is a respected resident in Bay Ridge.

 

Last October,  Mike Long threw  Jerry Kassar under the bus for lying during the election season. Ironically, Jerry Kassar didn’t report about that meeting last year in his column in the paper.  Jerry Kassar was the man who signed the paper to execute the placeholder candidate plan. Kassar thinks because the plan was made by a group of men so he shouldn’t  be blamed for executing the plan. Kassar’s column in the paper focuses on politics, yet he made our elections in Bay Ridge, like those in Iran. Everyone should be questioning Jerry Kassar and those involved in the placeholder candidate scheme. (More info here)

 

The Brooklyn Spectator has a responsibility to print the truth. Jerry Kassar’s column should be cancelled until December as it is election season and Jerry Kassar isn’t able to be impartial as he is a paid employee for Senator Golden. Even online, we found Jerry retweeting posts from a known fake account. Encourage him to open a blog because we look for objectivity in papers. While we understand that the paper is run by a small staff, it is imperative that the truth is printed, especially during election season (other people have pointed this out to the Reporter as well).   If Kassar’s article should continue to run, his article should be fact-checked, as one-sided reporting does not provide this community the ability with accurate information.
