Andrew Gounardes on Guns – Bay Ridge

 

 

“We can have reasonable regulations like requiring guns be stored, removed from dangerous people, and putting a limit on the size of magazines,” Andrew Gounardes said. “Look, cars kill people, too. But over the years, with regulations such as requiring seatbelts, we made it safer.”

 

We need politicians who will advocate for reasonable regulations, so that people are safe and gun aficionados are happy too.

 

See Andrew Gounardes’ position on guns here.   

 

I am  a fan of Gounardes, not only because of his dedication to this community, but also because he’s just a good person. Gounardes gave this Keynote Speech last Spring and it shows that he is an inspiring leader. (I don’t know Andrew Gounardes and he doesn’t know me)

 

 

 

 

7/17 Update: Even his tweets are sincere.

Marc Molinaro’s Archilles Heel

 

 

 

The Republican Party picked a good candidate for governor. Marc Molinaro is likable and NY’ers will be able to relate to him. Early on, Molinaro shared that he was raised by a single mom who relied on food stamps. I saw this on Molinaro’s website:

 

Julie Killian
 

 

Marc Molinaro platform sounds good, but either the Republican Party has set him up for failure with this running mate  OR  Molinaro choose poorly because he doesn’t want to be the governor. Rumors were Joe Borelli or another politician were being considered to run with Molinaro. Joe Borelli would have been a great running mate for Molinaro if the State of NY was entirely Republican.

Molinaro’s runnng mate is Julie Killian. I never heard of Killian. A quick search online shows she is a huge liability to Molinaro’s campaign. Killian has lost two campaigns by thousands of votes. The last losing campaign was just this past April. When a politician lost TWO elections, someone should tell them, “this isn’t for you.”  Unfortunately, some people don’t have good friends or family who can tell them the truth. Sometimes candidates are pushed to run for office by a lot of people who don’t have steady jobs and the candidate believes that a lot of people want them to win, when it’s just a few in their inner circle who need.  Why didn’t the Republican Party offer Molinaro someone who had a successful political background?

 

Campaign finance shows that Killian spent $1.9 million on television and radio, as well  as $205,000 on mailers. Another $800,000 was spent by a pro-charter school group for Killian (UGHHHHH). $800k by special interests. How is Marc Molinaro going to get money out of the government when special interests are behind his running mate?  Have they suddenly gone away? The Lieutenant Governor of NY should be someone who supports public education and improving all public schools, not pushing a few charter schools.

 

Marc Molinaro says he is against corruption and Pay-to-Play Politics.  Sounds good, right? Is he just against Governor Cuomo or Democrats corruption?  Why would Julie Killian be hanging out with Marty “Pay-to-Play” Golden? 

 

 

Hasn’t Julie Killian picked up a paper or done five minutes of research on Golden? How much pay-to-play incidents does a politician have to be involved in to be considered the King of Pay-to-Play Politics?  Killian posted this on Twitter:

 

 

Jul 13We had a great time today with at the Summer Stroll on 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge #  
Julie Killian

 

#BrooklynBelieves you want to take a lot of pictures like Golden. Yeah, we don’t need that. 

 

 

Julie Killian
 

 

Molinaro supports term limits and promises he will only run two terms. Molinaro explains the NY Assembly and Senate are full of politicians who have held the position for many years.  Doesn’t Molinaro realize that’s all Bay Ridge has? Molinero’s  running mate is standing with Senator Golden who has been in office for 12 years and voted in favor of tax breaks for a few developers in Manhattan. 

 

 

Julie Killian
 

 

It’s unlikely that Cynthia Nixon will win the Democratic primary, but if Cynthia stays in the election on the Working Family line, that could draw votes away from Cuomo. Marc Molinaro could win the state. Imagine Molinaro and Jumaane Williams as governor and lieutenant governor? Neither Molinaro or Williams would like that, but it might make great leadership in NYS.

 

If someone supports Molinaro. then they wouldn’t support Senator Golden because according to Molinaro doesn’t like politicians  being in office for too long  and he wouldn’t support Golden’s pay-to-play politics.  But then again his whole platform might be a rouse and getting rid of Cuomo was the whole objective to reform. Because it doesn’t say anything about reforming corrupt Republicans:

Accident on 85th Street 4th Avenue

 

 

We saw the area roped off as we were driving home yesterday evening. We found out a woman was hit by a car driven by an unlicensed driver. This morning we found out that the injured woman is the sweet owner of the Cleaners on 3rd Avenue between 81st and 82nd Streets.

 

The 45-year-old business owner was hurt and brought to Lutheran Hospital. She has several fractures in her leg, in addition to her hip. She’s a very kind woman and hopefully will have a speedy recovery. 

 

Councilman Brannan shared more about the accident:

Jasi Robinson Calls Out Diane Savino For Funding Pam Harris

 

State Senator Diane Savino was in the news a lot this year, either for her membership in the IDC or for her boyfriend Jeff Klein.

 

Yet, I had no idea Diane Savino used NY’ers money to fund Pam Harris!

 

 

 

 

The Post article that Jasi Robinson points to says that Senator Diane  Savino threw $4,400 at Pam Harris. Pam Harris, the former Assemblywoman was arrested for fraud and she has plead guilty to some of the counts of the indictment. 

 

Savino was knowingly funding the corrupt Pam Harris – this is disgraceful, but it isn’t surprising.
