Why Isn’t Senator Gounardes on The Rent Bill?

Senator Ginaris sponsored the NYS S8125A Rent Bill   The bill is dated  Monday, March 23rd. Today Wednesday, March 26th it received a print number.  

Why isn’t Senator Gounardes on the bill?






Does Gounardes think you have plenty of money? 



Or is he’s going to join the bill later and think you won’t notice?



Gounardes is part of the Judiciary Committee. If you are thinking the judiciary committee can’t sponsor the bill, that wouldn’t be true because Brad Hoytman,  Zellnor Myrie,  Diane Savino, Jamaal Bailey are also on the Judiciary Committee and they sponsored this bill as well.

Prayers for Todd Maisel

Photo from Maisel’s Twitter 


You may not know Todd Maisel, but if you live in Brooklyn, you have probably seen his work.


Todd Maisel is a photojournalist for AM New York. His photos have appeared in The Brooklyn Paper, The Brooklyn Reporter, Bklyner and more. 


Recently, Maisel tested positive for COV19. 


You are probably thinking he wouldn’t want that information to be public. But he does. Maisel documented his first days here.  Maisel has seen a lot of horrible things happen in NYC. Kicking COV19’s won’t be hard for him. 


If you know the power of prayer, join me in one for Todd’s speedy recovery.

Bklyner Article – Bay Ridge Townhall “Out of Touch”




Usually Bklyner is very complimentary towards the politicians in this area. 


But not today. 




Bklyner covered Senator Gounardes and Councilman Brannan’s Townhall.  See here

The journalist wrote that a neighbor said that the politician’s townhall was a bit out of touch. 

The neighbor was being polite. 

Gounardes and Brannan were very out-of-touch and provided general information that was already widely known the week before.  Justin Brannan didn’t used to be like this. Brannan used to be more connected and wanted people to have information.  Party politics seems to be more important to him now. 

This meeting seemed like they were just going through the motions to say, “We had a virtual townhall.”  

Senator Gounardes never seemed to get connected to the community. People voted for him because they thought he was going to be a change-agent, but he’s just a generic Democrat that doesn’t see his job to help Bay Ridge residents, but rather to be in Albany and vote with the Democrats.

Did Gounardes even hang a sign with his name on his office or does it still say Justin Brannan? (I’ll update this when I know for sure)    In 2019, I talked with Senator Gounrdes about why having a sign was important. I got the feeling that he didn’t care what I said. 


People in Bay Ridge needed information about paying their rent and other basic living costs because they were laid off. 


Throughout the year, Andrew Gounardes pretended he was going to do something to help Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Marine Park property owners. Instead, he pushed bills for the bike community and wasn’t forthcoming that the bill was for them. Now no one is going to see property tax reform because the city is going to be in bad shape.  Andrew Gounardes’ friends, Brad Lander and Bill de Blasio will keep their low property taxes in Park Slope – see here.

Dyker Heights Steps Out As a Community




There are a lot of good people in Dyker Heights.

They were raised by good people, who taught them to look out for their neighbors and the kids.

It’s important to take the kids outside and get some air, but also so hard with keeping them socially distant. 

Well done Dyker Heights!
