HIJACKING IN PROGRESS!
New York City, October 21, 2008 Will we be able to counter attack the planned hijacking of our rights as tax paying New Yorkers
Limited and restricted by only a few zero’s, following their personal dollar signs, working class New Yorkers, those who drive the city with blue collar sweat and a fierce loyalty are succumbing to the “capriciousness” of the wealthy cronies of Bloomberg’s billions. A threat to “democracy” in our local government is becoming much more than a shadow looming in those hallowed halls of “quasi democracy.”
New York needs “change’ in order to morph into a city for the people, by the people; where constituents and their votes count and “everyman” takes priority over “corporate commerce” and the “whispered whims” of the super rich. This means electing a Mayor whose sense of honor and respect for all socio economic classes, cultures, and colors transcends personal agendas.
Queens Councilman, Tony Avella is making a run for Mayor amidst the furor in City Hall , as a tyrannical Speaker Quinn and blustery Bloomberg shove an elitist third finger in our faces.
Come and meet a real champion of the people. On Tuesday evening the 21st of October, from 7 – 8:30 pm, an open house reception for democratic, Mayoral Candidate Tony Avella will be given at the upper , east side home of international activist, Marijo Gillis, founder of WAG NY, (www.wagny.org and www.wagny.net )a political justice action force based in NYC and Athens, Greece.
We need a candidate with a revitalizing and refreshing commitment to all New Yorkers; a guy who is making “politics” a “respectable vocation” and not running on a platform of cronyism and political pandering. We need and want a candidate who keeps out of the pockets of big business, respects the wishes of the voters and who has no desire to master the art of speaking out of both sides of his mouth. “ Marijo Gillis
