    Handmaids Meet Congressman Donovan in Bay Ridge

    Congressman Dan Donovan had a coffee meetup today from 2 – 4 pm in Bay Ridge.  Donovan was greeted by the Handmaids Resistance at Fort Hamilton High School.

    Why are these women dressed as handmaids and wearing the white bonnet and red cape?    Women’s rights activists have been protesting elected representatives wearing white bonnets and red cloaks (See more here)

    During today’s coffee meetup with Donovan, he tried to sound endearing to Bay Ridge residents and told them their advocacy worked.   The topic of net neutrality came up and Donovan may or may not understand it. Apparently, Donovan was also asked about this last week at a meetup, so he may be playing dumb because a pol won’t go to another meeting without knowing the answer, would he?  See here





    At the end of the meeting, Donovan booked. Most politicians will linger at the end of a meeting and talk to residents individually (well Vinnie Gentile will). Donovan has a habit of ending a meeting (even an online meeting he will end at the exact ending time and not take any more questions.  It comes off as uncaring and cold.  Fight Back Bay Ridge wrote:




    Fight Back Bay Ridge stood up to another elected representative who forgot he represents people in Bay Ridge. This is not the first time Donovan has been met by the Handmaids. On October 28th, Fight Back Bay Ridge Handmaidens  protested Donovan  and recorded their meeting. In the video, Donovan reads their message and looks ridiculous.  The video has been watched by over 10,000 people.


    Last Spring, Donovan refused to have a Town Hall Meeting in Bay Ridge. Fight Back Bay Ridge held a Town Hall and invited Donovan, but he didn’t show up.


    This Fall, Michael Grimm announced he is returning to politics and will be was running against Donovan.  Now Donovan wants to drink coffee with Bay Ridge.

    Fingerlings ~ The Hot Toy For Christmas

    Fingerlings have been hard to find before Halloween. Companies want to create a demand for their items so people want it. Creating the demand in October, really makes the kids want it by December, especially since they see so much advertising for it.




    Where can you get Fingerlings?  Amazon has some here. But be careful because some are fakes (see the reviews)
