"On the Democratic side, Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY), making his third appearance, has been under investigation for his ties to several non-profit groups and for accepting improper gifts and loans."....

 I know that Meeks certainly has had his share of issues and is probably guilty of a bunch of things but who is out there in
Southeastern Queens that has won elections AND is even somewhat clean in their politics to bring more to this area?
It is truly godforsaken when it comes to many amenities that other parts of the city take for granted.

Pets and Animals / Doggie Daycare in JH?
« Last post by brusselsjacksonheights on March 15, 2019, 11:42:26 AM »
Hello fellow dog lovers!

Our beloved doggie daycare go-to, Janet, moved away last year and we've been looking for a replacement in the neighborhood to care for our Brussels Griffon a couple times during the week. Does anyone have a recommendation for a doggie playgroup or facility they love?

Thanks so much!

i understand what you're saying and i am NOT attacking your point of view, but....

didn't the current "president" take office based ENTIRELY on identity politics? the aggrieved caucasian (mostly male) identity?

O'Rourke is an excellent candidate.

the astroturf campaign being waged by undercover GOP operatives says he has white male privilege, and should be disqualified. since there are no white males in the GOP.

Identity Politics. The mistake that will cause the Democrat Party to shoot itself in the foot.

I think this is great and why NY is special.  They did however receive six billion dollars in incentives and tax breaks but I think it  is a good investment for the city.

Beto has to be the biggest joke of a presidential candidate there is. He hasn’t done anything in life except get elected to congress.

But he may still inherit a real estate empire. We don't know his father's financial situation.

JHers are pretty absolved from it but Queens voters are the POS's that keep voting for corrupt politicians

 I don't know Meeks but what I am familiar with in working occasionally in Southeast Queens is that they are ignored in
a major way with many city initiatives and benefits. In schools, roads, civic services, public facilities such as libraries
health services, elder care and community spaces, this area of Queens is at or near the bottom when is comes to getting
theirs.

 If his election does anything to right this wrong, I am completely in favor. And please don't accuse him of favoritism as
he can give more to his area for some time just to bring them up to a fair standard with other parts of the city.

i like Rep. Meeks, but i don't see why we need a double dipper in the position.
