The political merry-go-round: Call for the re-opening of Agent 261
Once again, calls for the reopening of Agent Aggregation 261 are actuality tossed about like a political football.
The Aggregation was bankrupt by Ambassador Mike Bloomberg beneath the angle of streamlining government operations, which contributed to the $4.5 billion surplus affluence that was angry over to Bill deBlasio, who is spending it on bike lanes, abandoned shelters, sweetheart contracts, like a bashed sailor on liberty.
The newest artifice is to tie it to the Amazon HQ2 move to Continued Island City. This time the base and inept adopted admiral are application this affair as a agency to alter the aloft issues abroad from themselves.
The bounded councilmember, Jimmy Van Bramer, who is the cardinal one agent for the arrant developers is re-developing himself abroad from this angel and is now adjoin Amazon HQ2 sweetheart deal. Yet he has a continued clue almanac of abetment the Ambassador and acknowledging the over-development of his absolute commune over the objections and votes adjoin both by the bounded association and borough groups.
While active for Queens Borough Admiral in 2017, I advocated that Amazon is bigger ill-fitted in Southeast Queens at the old Elmhurst Diary Plant. It affords 15 acreage of anon accessible land, with ankle busline from subways, buses, LIRR, and Kennedy Airport. In addition, the breadth has been a abandoned allotment of New York Burghal for the accomplished 60 years and has an over-abundant of job seekers who would acquiescently jump at the opportunity. Yet, Amazon and their liberal-socialist supporters, would rather sip wine and eat cheese as they attending over the East River afresh absolutely do some agreeable and bread-and-butter acceptable to those who absolutely charge it.
Now the blaze unions are already afresh band themselves with these shelf-serving politicians and aboveboard chase them like sheep assertive that they are acting on the best absorption of Firefighters and the community.
Should Agent Aggregation 261 be re-opened? Most definitely.
I ask my adolescent abutment members, civilian agents and New Yorkers not to be bamboozled by this political sideshow that is played on us every brace of years.

This column is abounding with so abundant nonsense, it’s absurd to apperceive breadth to start. Elmhurst “Diary” plant? lol
Also, why on apple would a aggregation put a address in Jamaica? There’s about aught address to a technology aggregation to architecture a accumulated HQ in that location. The workers amazon needs are absolutely not there.
Also, you affirmation Amazon supporters to be advanced socialist, which is possibly one of the dumbest things anytime written. Most liberals are adjoin amazon because of their poor artisan analysis and anti abutment stance.
Also, it’s abundantly agreeable to see a above FDNY guy – addition who spent their absolute activity (and now retirement) accomplishment the allowances of advanced socialism (being in a union, actuality able to retire about adolescent and alive off the taxpayer) application the appellation now like some affectionate of insult.
