Yen Chou to Ethel Chen: You Owe This Community An Apology!

Not in my neighborhood

Standing up for voters by calling out shameful politics.

Yen Chou, a candidate for Assembly District 40, held a press conference with community leaders to demand an apology from Assembly Candidate Ethel Chen who filed a lawsuit that Chou claims was tantamount to an act of ‘voter suppression and harassment’.

“I think it is shameful that any candidate would stoop this low to separate our community,” said Chou in a press release. “We need to move forward and work to unify our community toward the best we can be and not be an instrument of segregation .”

Were these voters unfairly targeted by the Chen campaign?

Chou’s claims were backed up by community Leader Chaudhry Anwar, “I cannot understand why I was approached by an Ethel Chen staffer asking me did I collect the signature of two Korean community members. I Feel that the question was insulting because my wife is Korean,” adding, “This is not the way anyone should approach our community.”

More on this to follow.

Council Member Daniel Dromm Leads A Protest Against Proposed Newsstand.

City Council Member Dromm never strays far from his roots as a community organizer. This time he is bringing attention to a proposed newsstand that will increase congestion on on the busiest intersection in Jackson Heights. Poor City Planning? Probably, but as long as Dromm is on the issue, I wouldn’t worry too much.

Check out the video here. NY1: Residents Rally Against Proposed News Stand.
