It's been weeks already and our Tenants Association has still not supported as a sponsor "New Yorkers for a Human-Scale City" and our councilman, Dan Garodnick, is not supporting the Small Business Jobs Survival Act.
The uselessness of both our Tenants Association (which seems joined at the hip to our councilman) and Dan Garodnick is becoming more and more apparent as the months go by.
This blog is watching and waiting and will not forget.
And let's remember:
"In January, about a week after City Councilman Daniel Garodnick lost the race for council speaker, he was the belle of the real-estate industry's annual ball. Mr. Garodnick sat on the stage with other dignitaries at the New York Hilton, two seats down from Alicia Glen, a powerful deputy mayor who oversees housing and economic development. No one at the Real Estate Board of New York's banquet attracted a bigger cluster of executives and lobbyists waiting for a word than the 42-year old councilman for Manhattan's East Side."
"The city's real-estate world continues to open its wallet to Mr. Garodnick. In the most recent election cycle, he received more than $200,000 of contributions from the industry, out of about $1 million, according to a Wall Street Journal calculation."
So, yeah, it would be tough for Dan to side with small businesses. Understood.
