CONGRATULATIONS!!

Congratulations to our City Council candidates, Joe Concannon (District #23 – Oakland Gardens, Queens Village), Sunny Hahn (District #20 – Flushing), Dennis Saffran (District 19 – Northeast Queens)! All three candidates successfully secured the Reform Party ballot line for the November General Elections. The Reform Party is an independent, third party line on the ballot which will expand the ballot choices for Liberal and Democratic voters who are concerned with the safety and security of our city and fed up with the rampant culture of corruption in our city government.  All three candidates were proudly endorsed by the Queens Village Republican Club.

OCTOBER MEETING IS OUR COLUMBUS DAY DINNER EVENT

There are two meetings out of the yearly calendar devoted as dinner meetings. The Christmas (Dec.) meeting is one, and the other is October when we celebrate Christopher Columbus Day. The dinner is $35 per person with tax and tip included. There will be a choice of four entrees, plus coffee/tea/soda, dessert, salad, and pasta courses included. The purchase of the dinner is not mandatory (unlike the Dec. meeting,) but we do need a count for the restaurant. Please contact Jim Trent either at 718-343-8830 or jtrent8830@aol.com to make your reservation. Entree choices are chicken francese, eggplant parmigiana, pork chop with vinegar peppers, and tilapia oreganata. Choices can be made at the dinner.

 THE DREADED RED DOTS ARE BACK!!

If the envelope containing this issue of the The Queens Village Eagle sported a red dot, it means you are in membership arrears for the year 2013. We have enclosed a handy remittance envelope. Please use the back panel of the newsletter below (or photocopy) and mail back to us with your check payable to the Queens Village Republican Club. Your dues support day to day operations such as meeting hall rent, postage and printing of the newsletter, stationery supplies, Internet expenses, etc. Campaign support comes largely from the Lincoln’s Day Dinner proceeds. We need both sources of income to be a viable club. If you are not in arrears (no red dot) you can use the response envelope to pay ahead for 2014 or make a donation. Thank you.

WHETHER YOU LIVE IN THEIR DISTRICT OR NOT WE NEED EVERYONE TO CALL THEM TO LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU OPPOSE THE “COMMUNITY SAFETY ACT” (INTRO 1079 & 1080) WHICH WILL UNDERMINE THE POLICE AND CAUSE CRIME AND MURDERS TO SOAR OUT OF CONTROL IN NYC! DEMAND THAT THEY CHANGE THEIR VOTE SO THE MAYOR’S VETO WILL STAND!

Councilman Weprin’s Lies on Stop, Question & Frisk

Rebuttal to Councilman Weprin’s defense of the Community Safety Act (TimesLedger, July 19-25, 2013)

Times-Ledger-Newspaper-Logo -smallCouncilman Mark Weprin wrote a letter in last week’s TimesLedger defending his vote for the two misguided bills, Intro 1079 and Intro 1080 comprising the Community Safety Act. As a constituent concerned about the safety of my family, friends and community, I am infuriated with his vote, and even more distressed by his explanatory letter filled with political doublespeak which shows that either he is lying or hasn’t read the bills.

The Rockaway Republicans attend the the 138th Lincoln Dinner

The Rockaway Republicans shared with some 200 Queens Republicans a great afternoon and wonderful tribute to America’s 16th President. This was the 138th such Lincoln tribute here in Queens, sponsored – as always – by the Queens Village Republican Club. Here’s a quick rundown of QVRC’s extraordinary guest speakers.

No better perpetuation of Lincoln’s ‘better angels of our nature’ can there be without a strong and solid K-12 education and Maspeth High’s Principal, Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir, described to us the classical education and curriculum he has instituted. He took the same education in Boston beginning at St. Mary’s, the very same grade school his mother and grandmother attended, and pitched the idea to NYC’s Board of Education and was chosen to run the new Maspeth High…awesome stuff for a school of immigrant and naturally born kids: our better angels.
