Title: Monserrate Running for Party Position
Post by: earbears on August 25, 2018, 03:08:33 PM
Please check into your candidates very well. We have many "new" candidates that have been trained and are endebted to Hiram Monserrate. Yes, he is running for District Leader in his area and his followers are running in our areas. Speaking for myself I do NOT want his influence taking over. I ask that you each research all the candidates. That would include their Facebbok accounts, Twitter accounts and anything else you can find.

I know that in my area - (34th - part A) - the new candidate is a Monserrate follower and has done nothing to work for this neighborhood. I will never vote for her.  I believe that Hiram has people running for District leader in many areas so that he can he elected County Leader. Is that what you want - Hiram taking over the machine???? NO!!!  NEVER!!!

I will vote for Maureen Allen - the incubent. She has worked hard for all of JH for many years. Yes, she  can be called a mamber of the establishment. However, she is a proven die-hard Jackson Heighter. She is also President of the JH Kiwanis Club and they have sponsered many events here. Remember the big street fair along 37th Avenue? Maureen has always been incharge of it. She is responsive to the residents and the merchants in Jackson Heights through her associations. She is the person to help keep JH beautiful, functioning and the place we love.

Please research them both. Do you want Hiram invovled in Jackson Heights? Do you want Hiram to take over the County party?? I say NO!!!  NEVER!!!!

NO for Monserrate and his followers!

VOTE FOR MAUREEN ALLEN !!!!

How does Monserrate get to run again even after being convicted?  Politics is a truly dirty and corrupt endeavor.

HOLY SMOKES! Thank you for posting this.

A woman who is running came to our door a month or two ago. My wife and I spoke with her and appreciated her effort to run. So I was going to support her. She is running as part of a group of other latinos and mentioned that they felt it was time to step up and help their community.

After reading this I looked up Monserrate's Twitter account. And she immediately popped up!!! He was endorsing her (sort of). I know that he runs a Latino Democratic club. And people get criticized for appearing there, not knowing more about him or the club. This also happened to Ocasio Cortez (and Peralta  >:(). I'm not taking any chances though.

By the way, One of the things he does on his feed is come off like a BIG TIME Bernie supporter and progressive. This is also TOTALLY misleading in his characteristic way.

I have to agree with earbears!

Today walking down 37th ave I saw a flyer for them with a website.

https://www.eecdems.org/
 
I quickly looked it up out of curiosity. It was the club I previously mentioned. Monserrate is ALL OVER THIS!!! He's in a lot of photos. Sadly, so many of them worked to elect Ocasio-Cortez too. Peralta is also in the mix. It's easily available to anyone who'd make a basic inquiry.

A person who cares about vulnerable people should just intrinsically understand that stealing large sums of campaign cash and violent domestic abuse are just wrong. It's not "progressive". Pay your debt to society but, move on and stop trying to make a comeback. It's honestly a little sick...

Thanks for the info.  I'd rather die than vote for anyone that supports Monserrate.  He betrayed the trust of every single resident by stealing money from us, and he betrayed my trust personally by joining the Republicans (just like Peralta) and by voting against marriage equality.  Screw him.  At least now I know who they are.

Does anyone know how we can see everyone who will be on our ballots, so we know what our options are before we go into the voting booth?

I know of course we'll be voting for governor, state senate, attorney general, and (in some parts of JH) assembly, but what about these other small positions?

I was at the farmers market today and saw Liliana Melo campaigning so, I decided to ask her in person if she supports Monnserate. I was not trying to be controversial. I asked politely. I simply didn't want to guided by anonymous posts on this thread.

The woman folded like a chair! It was immediately a hot button issue. She could not answer directly. She said she did not know if she would or would not support him. The man with her chimed in by saying that you cannot know what the future holds and that some Democrats become Republicans. I was stunned by their response and I honestly meant no harm. It almost became a huge argument so, I walked away because I really did not expect that. I guess that's all I need to know though as for as this subject goes.

She does not know much about the area. Look at her twitter or Facebook page and you will see that she is 90% involved with politics outside the USA. She is a follower of Hiram Monserrate.

A Facebook comment:

"Paola Angel Mendoza - As I wrote before, Liliana Melo is Uribe follow and supporter, she said NO to peace agreement in Colombia, that means she is war supporter. For all who don’t know Uribe is a paramilitares creator. Why does she want to run as democrat here in New York if she support the republicans and fundamentalists in Colombia?"

Hiram Monserrate, an ex-politician in Queens, was convicted of assault for slashing his girlfriend's face. He also served 2 years in prison for felony fraud. He'll do anything to get back into power.

He plans to build a cadre of cronies inside the Democratic party by running a slate of candidates in obscure races in the upcoming primary.

Queens friends: PLEASE check the guide below, and help deny Monserrate his a comeback. Print a copy to bring to the polls on THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 13th.

I have a very sad and scary story to tell. While out canvasing for another candidate in Corona, I knocked on a man's door who told me he had already voted. Some people had come to his house a few days ago with a ballot. He told me (of his own volition) that he checked off Cuomo, Peralta, and Monserrate. Then, they folded the ballot and put it in an envelope. I guess that it will be submitted as an absentee.

I was totally nauseated. This is MAJORLY ILLEGAL. It's very surreal to be bluntly confronted with the sleaze of politics in NY when you are (naively) thinking of doing good and participating in democracy. These men are MUST BE STOPPED....

For those who were hungry for a bit more outside confirmation:

Isabel Encalada has a Facebook post from last year in which she is apparently supporting Monserrate. I don't speak Spanish, so I can't understand what she is saying about him, but she's wearing a shirt with his name on it.

https://www.facebook.com/isabel.encalada2/videos/vb.100001083384450/1522507954461969/?type=2&video_source=user_video_tab

I did not find any direct evidence of William Marquez supporting Monserrate. However, stitching together info from Facebook and articles translated from Queens Latino, it seems as though he has been involved with community events organized by Eduardo Giraldo, who supported Monserrate in 2016.

I don't know about Liliana Melo beyond what's here, including that another member of this forum (Gordan) said she would not answer when asked about Monserrate:

One of the minions had a truck with political posters all over it across the street from a polling place. The BOE Coordinator spoke to the police officer who went outside immediately. The truck was in violation of the proper distance. So, posters was removed.

Unfortunately, the Monserrate slate won about half of their races.

In AD34, Melo, Gomez, and Encalda won, Marquez lost.
In AD35, Monserrate, Harvey, and Aiken won; Suero and Morgan lost.
In AD39, Ramirez won, Enriquez-Luciano lost.

I'm not sure if these positions mean anything, but this is worrisome for those who hope to see a more progressive party emerge from the ashes of the Queens machine.

What are these positions anyway?  Are they merely ceremonial, or do they have influence in the workings of the state party? 

Most importantly: is the party obligated to recognize the outcomes of these elections?  Can the state party vote to reject Monserrate as one of its leaders?

Does anybody know?

Sure would be, but 100 plus years tammany hall democrats wont go down without a fight.

Perhaps we should honor the great ask of Maxime Waters and ensure they are greeted in public? where they eat? where they shop?

Perhaps we should protest the Georgia diner for doing business with deplorables?
