People have asked our team of petitioners, “Why is Anthony Rivers running for City Council?”
The answer, we need an ADVOCATE FOR SOUTH EAST QUEENS.
Have you noticed how the quality of the neighborhood services changes as soon as you cross Jamaica Ave.? Ask yourself the following questions.
Why are homeless shelters constantly being placed on our side of Queens instead of adhering to the fair share policies?
Why are High schools being collocated (multiple locations in one building) in our neighborhood? but, function as one school on the north side of Queens.
Why don’t our schools function well?
Why are property taxes going up in our neighborhood, while other communities get property tax exemptions?
Why the streets aren’t cleaned and paved?
Why are senior citizen centers being closed?
These are just a few questions that come to mind.
The reason we’re running, we realized our incumbent has not challenged the Mayor, Borough President, or District Attorney on any issue that directly impacts our neighborhood. He stands with a lot of people, but seldom rolls up his sleeves to fight against anything that has a negative impact in our community. (click on link to mayors meeting)
These are the reasons Anthony Rivers is running for City Council. We are grassroots, we don’t seek multiple endorsements. (every endorsement equals less control) Why have we decided to put my name out front?
I would like to say, my name may be on the ballot but I don’t consider it my seat. It is the community’s seat.
We are fighting for goals and objectives for our community.
We need SEQ to come out and vote on September 12, bring control back to the people.
This gets Worse, to further substantiate collusion the incumbent is using the attorney Frank Bolz on his petitions.
Frank Bolz, for those who don’t know (see link to Daily News Article) is the very same attorney who works to keep control over the entire democratic party in queens county. You wonder why nothing gets done in our community, this is the reason. (please read daily news article)
