People Would Take This Seriously If They Saw These Videos


Don’t click here or here if you don’t want to see the reality going on in NYC. This is Maimonides Hospital – don’t click if this is too much for you. 

I feel like we are in a science fiction movie. This is unlike anything we have seen and many people don’t know it’s this bad. London is taking it a lot more seriously – see video (not bag like those above)

Justin Brannan’s $7,000 Birthday Party



In October 2019, Justin Brannan threw a birthday party fundraiser at The Dyker Beach Golf Course. See invitation here


The party cost almost $7,000. 




See Larger



Brannan was called out on his spending after people saw him playing politics on social media. See tweet.  Home owners are fed up with him pretending to support them when it’s clear after two years that Brannan won’t help them and sides with  Mayor de Blasio. Being disingenuous has brought him a lot of hate.


Councilman Brannan is very out-of-touch since he thinks spending seven thousand dollars on a birthday party for several hours is acceptable. Homeless people lay on the streets in our neighborhood and he has the money for a lavish party for himself! Thirty-four thousand children in NYC live in shelters and politicians want to have fancy birthday parties for themselves? Seven thousand could have paid the rent for two families in our neighborhood.


This is very different from the Justin Brannan that the people elected two years ago. In January 2018 , Brannan held a modest inauguration party at Xaverian High School. Big Difference!

Brannan’s isn’t due for re-election for two years so why is he having parties and collecting money now? See spending



Politicians really believe that it’s their money, so they can do what they want with it. They wouldn’t have that money if it wasn’t for the people electing them to that position. Why doesn’t their family or staff tell them that something is too extravagant or wasteful?  


Maybe Councilman Brannan should have used the money for the Haunted Halloween in Owls Head Park this year. Many were disappointed with this years setup. Brannan knew people were disappointed and said, “Next year, we’ll do it even bigger and better.”   

Ultimately, how does a politician reckon they are entitled to a party, while other people don’t have some place to live? If people wanted to give to the campaign, they would give without attending a ritzy party, right? Looking into who gave contributions to the campaign will be coming soon.


Years ago, the President of the Bay Ridge Democrats used to call out things like this all the time. Why is he silent now? He must support this lavish spending. What changed?


Disappointed to see people who I know and used to respect supporting this. You all know Bay Ridge deserves better!

NYC Coronavirus Neighborhood Map is Useless

NYC put out a misleading map and Senator Gounardes shared it.


What’s wrong with the map?

It doesn’t say how many people in each neighborhood tested positive. The map only shows what percentage of people WHO WERE TESTED have COVID-19. 







Instead of Gounardes asking the city for clarification on this, he posted it on his Twitter page and people in his area are going to think the area has a low level of coronavirus, as compared to other areas.

Why is the city withholding how many people in each neighborhood have coronavirus?
