As the NY Times City Room reported, Congressman Anthony Weiner’s questions regarding Mayor Bloomberg’s touting term limits were not even allowed to pass into His Royal Mayor’s great ears.
You can take a look at the transcript of what went on at the press conference and if you know what the Mayor meant by saying, “I didn’t hear what Anthony Weiner said, so it’s kind of hard to respond and I’m not worried about campaigning” — will you please let me know?
Call me shallow, but I always liked Anthony Weiner, because he reminded me so much of my baby brother. But, aside from that he proved to be such a good politician for the little people, effecting change and doing lots of work.
I’m especially proud of him for understanding the impact of all that excess product packaging that seems to be clogging every single catch basin and sewer grate (especially in Sheepshead Bay). He’s even introducing a bill to help reduce this type of waste by 30% in 10 years.
Best of all, we have him to thank for helping to bring back Sheepshead Bay and giving us all so much to be proud of, lately — as his website bio reminds us
He spearheaded development plans for historic Sheepshead Bay that led to a revival of the area. And when supermarkets started leaving the neighborhood, Anthony worked night and day to reverse the trend.
You can all stop by his office at 1800 Sheepshead Bay Rd and leave him a “Thank you for being so brave” note. Or maybe, he’s just untainted — like the little boy in the Emperor’s New clothes who yelled out, “But he has nothing on!”
Whoever dares to seriously question our all powerful HRM — is a great person. But when that person has roots in Sheepshead Bay — then he is the true HRH, in my eyes.
