New York Shitty Day Ender: And Now A Few More Words From Chris Olechowski

(And his “friends”*)

How many folks do you recognize in the following group photo, 50th Assembly District Democrats?

Speaking as someone who calls Mrs. Klementovicz a neighbor (and a friend— the above footage of her being awesome hails from a meeting a few months ago. A meeting, I’ll note at which Mr. Olechowski was not present.) I really have to wonder if she is aware of the claims Mr. Olechowski has been making in terms of his role in the fight against the TGE plant. I doubt it.** In any case, I found the following endorsement fascinating:

I am proud to support Chris because he has always shown the extraodinary ability to bring our community together. — NYC City Councilmember Stephen Levin.

Behold Mr. Olechowski’s “community building” rhetoric for yourself.

**As of today, August 22, she is. Here is a rundown of what happened:

…just came back from shopping on Manhattan Ave and Irene was strolling by, (For those that don’t know Irene was an activist from at least the 1970’s, she’s 83 now and was one of the leaders that eventually got the Greenpoint Incinerator shut down.) I told her the story that “some one”, leaving Chris’ name out, who was running for political office was taking credit for the TGE battle. She raised her eyebrows only as Irene can and at the end I told her it was Chris and her brows went up another notch. …she told me this story about supporting Chris. Chris approached her for support on environmental issues and Irene asked, “but what did you do?” Chris answered, “I supported you.” I’ll leave it at that…

So there have you.

*For example, this other mailer we received today.

  2. On one hand, I’m relieved that Olechowski’s advertising isn’t negative (or has yet to become so), but on the other hand it just makes this challenge more flabbergasting to me. I have to admit that I’ve been a big Restler fan ever since his constructive response to the rash of anti-LBGT attacks in North Brooklyn, and he seems to be one of the few elected officials in this community to pair nice speeches with action and follow-through. If Olechowski (and members of Community Board 1, for that matter), have deemed Restler ill fit for the duties of his position, then why don’t they tell us why?

    I believe that I know the answer, of course, so I won’t be holding my breath.

    (ps-Have we ever found out why Levin doesn’t endorse Restler? Actual reasons instead of Olechowski-endorsed platitiudes?)

  4. Levin doesn’t endorse Restler because Levin knows how he got where he is (read: Vito.)

Tell me what you're thinking...
