What’s Wrong with St. Anselm’s Academy Board of Directors?

 

 

Saint Anselm Academy seems to have problem recruiting people to be on their Board of Directors. Usually the head of the Board of Directors loads the board with influencial people so an organization can flourish. Saint Anselm Church has been trying to recruit members for a longgggg time. Usually people are very flattered to have been asked to be on a a Board of Directors and can’t wait to do things to help an organization. But something isn’t right here.

 

I asked a friend why she wasn’t on it and she told me she know someone who was on it and that perso resigned (which people usually don’t do until they have been on a board for several years and helped setup a program or two for the not-for-profit).

 

Maybe it’s time for the St. Anselm Academy to replace the chair with someone who can load the Board of Directors with influencial people who can bring in money and do things for the school.

Mike Long is Owned by the NRA

 


 

 

 

I tweeted Mike Long that this morning. 10 are dead in the Texas shooting yesterday. The NY Conservative Party Headquarters has taken around $65,000 over the years from the NRA. Long is the head of the party and as recent as this past Summer accepted money from the NRA.  He must either really love the NRA or he thinks the Conservative Party is so desperate that it needs $3,000 from the NRA. 

 

Remember Long doesn’t think anything is wrong with the NRA:

 

The NRA are experts on guns and can easily ask for common sense legislation to protect the whole country, but they don’t because they are busy controlling politicians like Long, who in turn control other politicians. This year, we have more more students and teachers in America killed than active duty military deaths. 

 

If Long can callout to Curtis Sliwa about joining the Conservatives and Republicans, then he can call out to the NRA for national reform as well. 

 

Fran VellaMarone is the treasurer for the NY Conservative Party and also the Brooklyn Conservative Party Vice Chair.

Ethan Lustig-Elgrably Points the Finger & Has No Answers

 

 

 

Ethan Lustig-Elgrably told the Bay Ridge Democrats that he found the situation of Pam Harris using government funding deeply disappointing.

 

DEEPLY DISAPPOINTING?!

 

 

It’s deeply disappointing to see this man is so far removed from the community AND HAS THE NERVE TO COME TO BAY RIDGE AND ASK FOR PEOPLE’S VOTES.

 

Lustig-Elgrably sat in Councilman Treyger’s office drinking the Treyger juice too long!

 

 

Thank you to my neighbors who spoke out so boldly in this video.  The first man who questioned Lustig-Elgably on the video spoke for Bay Ridge! The room cheered for my neighbor!

 

 

 

 

Ethan Lustig-Elgrably blamed other offices for mishandling the money and accepted NO responsibility for being part of Councilman Treyger’s office which didn’t do anything to follow up on that money.


A female voice in the room says, “Just to clarify….You were asked a direct question about your boss and yourself….”   I was dying laughing when I heard that. That woman wanted to send home the point that Ethan Lustig-Elgrably was a typical politician working the room with the typical politician’s nonsense. 

 

 

 

 

The audience burst out in chatter as WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE CORRUPTION – ETHAN LUSTIG-ELGRABLY!

 

Ethan Lustig-Elgrably didn’t seem to get it even after hearing from Bay Ridge residents.

 

Why didn’t Ethan Lustig-Elgrably get it?  Because he listened to Mark Treyger for a long time and Ethan actually believes he “fought” for this district. (Source) We never saw Lustif-Elgrably fight for anything – he was silent when the information about Pam Harris came out. 

 

Here’s Lustig-Elgrably feeding the lines to journalist, Kadia Goba. I can tell you that the city and state programs from home ownership aren’t for most people in our area OR they aren’t available for the high price homes IN OUR AREA (but it sounds good, right?)  If they were worthwhile, Mark Treyger would have already pushed them.

 

 

 

 

Ethan didn’t speak out against Treger throwing more money at Harris EVEN AFTER journalists showed Harris lied to the public.

When all of this corruption went down, I asked NYC Council Speaker, Melissa Mark Vivierto to check Treyger’s money and to stop funding Pam Harris – Vivierto didn’t do anything. Oh wait – yes, she did….she went to Coney Island and stood with Mark Treyger and Pam Harris to support Harris’ re-election, EVEN AFTER the press revealed the truth. Mark-Vivierto allowed Treyger to keep funding Harris not-for-profit. Corruption runs deep in NYC. I didn’t see Ethan ask the NYC Council Speaker to investigate or stop funding to Harris.

 

Pam Harris is probably going to jail, but no one is even investigating Mark Treyger.

 

 

 

Mark Treyger has the audacity to push another candidate for this seat, so he can have control in the area. 

 

 

IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN MARK AND ETHAN.

 

 

Did you see how angry my neighbors were that Mark Treyger is trying to play this community AGAIN?

 

 

In April,  Kadia Goba revealed this:  “It is rumored that Lustig-Elgrably moved to Coney Island to be eligible to run for Treyger’s term-limited council seat in 2021.” ( Lustig-Elgrably’s lived in Midwood which is City Council Jummane Williams district or Assemblyman Robert Carroll’s district).  Ethan probably should have waited until 2010 to run for Treyger’s spot…….maybe no one in Coney Island will look past all the corruption by then.

 

Strangely some items appear to be missing from Lustig-Elgrably Linkedin Account. When you search for him, you see this in Google:

 

 

When you look at his account there is only this:

 

 

 

 

 

Why did he remove his work with Brad Lander and Paul Vallone?  I’m guessing because that shows Lustig-Elgrably isn’t connected to Coney Island as Lander is from the posh Park Slope and Vallone represents upperclass sections of Queens (Alley Pond Park, Bay Terrace, Bayside, College Point, Douglaston, East Elmhurst, Flushing, Fresh Meadows, Little Neck and Whitestone)

 

Yet,  Lustig-Elgrably left his up his experience on Ari Kagan’s failed campaign for City Council.   I guess he thinks that will score points in Coney Island with the Democrats?  

 

After being in politics for several years, Lustig-Elgrably has only 12 connections on Linkedin?  Before Justin Brannan became our Councilman, Brannan had 500+ connections on LinkedIn. If someone asks Brannan about something, Brannan is never at a loss on who to contact.   

 

Ethan no longer works for Treyger, yet his Linkedin didn’t mention his  current position, a job at the Parks Department. 

 

Another strange thing:  Ethan Lustig-Elgrably said he was fighting for this area for awhile. There is no social media associated with him. Kadia Goba would have put his tag on her tweet if there was. On Facebook, there is an account, but only a few posts from 2012.  He doesn’t seem interested in talking with the public online. For our community, that wouldn’t be good. 

 

There are only these three tweets about him:

 

 

Kings County Politics stated that Lustig-Elgrably laid a bomb. Ethan Lustig-Elgrably got a reality check at the Bay Ridge Dems meeting. Ethan should step out of the way because he doesn’t have the background for this position and clearly he won’t be able to provide the leadership needed for this community.

Ross Barkan Calls for Relief For Bay Ridge Business Owners

 

 

Bay Ridge Business Owners have been hurting over the past few years. We can see this by the high turnover rate and closed stores in our area.

 

Senator Golden and Nicole Malliotakis have failed to do ANYTHING to help Bay Ridge small business owners.

 

Some business owners are paying $5000+ a month for a spot on the Avenue.

 

Ross Barkan, candidate for Senate has called for Commercial Rent Control.  We haven’t heard of anyone calling for this, but we think it should be considered because small businesses are what keep Bay Ridge feeling like Bay Ridge AND most of them are supporting local schools in the area as well. You don’t see donations from large companies at school card parties unless a parent has bought the item and donated it.
