The major theme of Joe Concannon’s campaign for the City Council race in District #23 is to “send de Blasio a midterm message.” This message is boldly emblazoned on all campaign signs and literature. The notion that de Blasio is taking NYC in the wrong direction is shared by voters of all political affiliations. Some are asking what is the message? In answer to the question, here’s some recent history.
Fred Bedell has written to our local and regional papers about another fallen officer and implores voters to come out and vote for Joe Concannon in the City Council race in CD#23.
NYPD Officer Randolph Holder
It is with great sadness I write about another one of our Finest killed in the line of duty. NYPD officer Randolph Holder, while chasing a fleeing perpetrator, was shot in the head and killed by alleged killer Tyrone Howard. According to published reports this man was a career criminal and was arrested many times, and some arrests were commissions of violent acts. Here is a man that should not have been released from his last arrest. In my opinion our justice system is broken.
Furthermore our previous policy of,” Stop and frisk,” should not have been stopped. The criminals out there have become very brazen and not afraid to carry an illegal weapon, knowing they will not be stopped. Added to that more guns are entering the city. If we don’t do a turn around, more of our Finest will be killed or maimed, not to mention more of our innocent men, women and children will be killed. Remember our Finest are sworn to serve and protect and yet who’s protecting them ?
Now on November 3rd there is a special election in the 23rd district and a man named Joe Concannon is running for a seat on the City Council. He is a retired Captain and has served on the NYPD and has served in the military. He has promised to fight against taxpayer money being used for criminal bail and has also said he will fight to bring back Stop, Question and Frisk. This is the common sense person we need and will get us back on track and save lives. Finally, in closing, my heartfelt prayers go out to the family of Randolph Holder and his friends and fellow officers who are grieving so.
Remember this too: Evil thrives when good people do nothing, so let your voice be heard to all of our elected officials!
Republican and Conservative candidate Joe Concannon, a U.S. Air Force veteran and retired NYPD captain, has been steadfast in campaigning for the vacant northeast Queens City Council seat since announcing his election bid in June.
Concannon is challenging his Democratic opponent, Bob Grodenchik, for the City Council seat that covers Glen Oaks, Bayside Hills, Fresh Meadows, Queens Village and several other smaller neighborhoods. Mark Weprin gave up the seat to take a position in the Cuomo administration in May.
No Republican has held District 23 in at least five decades, although the boundaries of the district have been redrawn about every 10 years during that period.
And with only three Republican members currently serving in the City Council, Concannon has a big task ahead of him. Even so, he said he and his campaigners are “cautiously optimistic.”
Our city is in peril and we need a change of course. This epic battle will play out on November 3rd when voters make their feelings known at the ballot box. We can change the dangerous direction our city is headed with a strong message, “Vote Republican” in the General Election.
Joe Concannon, a retired NYPD captain and U.S. Air Force Veteran running for Mark Weprin’s City Council seat, said he sympathized with the family but that the families of the three police officers who were killed this year did not receive such a settlement.

Congressman Steve Israel is “joined at the hip” to President Obama. A vote for Steve Israel is a vote against the State of Israel. It’s a vote for the development of Iran’s nuclear weapons; it’s a vote for the burgeoning menace of ISIS; it’s a vote for the rearming of Hamas in preparation for another war against the Jewish state; it’s a vote for continued chaos and bloodshed in the Middle East without a coherent strategy in sight. The national security of the United States and the State of Israel are at stake here.
Freedom isn’t free. The barbarians are at our gates, in our city’s streets, in our Operas, infiltrating our government and crossing our borders. We have no choice but to fight back by rousing our fellow Republicans and Conservatives and all those who have awakened, and get them out to the polls to vote for Grant Lally, Rob Astorino and all our Republican statewide candidates on November 4.
“The people of our great nation are compassionate, caring and considerate. They will rise up and take our nation back. It begins with you, an individual. One vote counts, one vote matters, one person can change the course of history. Election Day is November 4th, 2014 and your nation is calling upon its citizens to set the course of history straight once again. “
The revolting New York Post cover from Thursday Oct. 2nd shows Governor Andrew Cuomo kissing the ring at the altar of Al Sharpton. Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio, and other Democrat political big shots left in the middle of the Catholic Church’s annual Al Smith Dinner to see the man they really worship, Rev. Al Sharpton who was celebrating his 60th birthday the same night. It is sickening but it’s true. Falling all over each other to sing Sharpton’s praises, Cuomo declared: “He’s no longer just New York’s Al Sharpton, he’s the nation’s Rev. Sharpton – and the nation is better for it.”

“It is disappointing to note that Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan appear to better understand the horrible danger that Hamas presents to the region than does President Obama. Equally distressing, our President has taken but minimum action as ISIS slaughters thousands of Christians, Shiites and Yazidis throughout the Middle East.”
