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.
