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.”

Crowley’s Lies Catch Up To Her

I lied and I'll do it again.

Here we go again Liz.

Last week Queens-Politics uncovered the fact that Liz Crowley blatantly lied about her achievements and now the County organization has removed her from the official County slate.

Why was she removed? Is it because of last week’s article? Or is it because Liz is trying to take credit for things she’s not responsible for? A look back at recent events reveals the true story.

In the budget process for fiscal year 2011, Elizabeth issued a press release stating that she saved the firehouses. Low and behold, the negotiations were not complete. The budget negotiation team had not finalized it and Elizabeth jumped the gun for her own political personal gain.

As punishment, Liz’s discretionary funding was reduced to $358,321 directly below indicted Council member Larry Seabrook. She brought in the least amount of money from the City Council and her community was jilted because of her incompetence.

Liz jeopardized the budget process by taking liberties with the truth. The truth, however, doesn’t seem to matter much. On her recent political mailer where she talked about saving schools she also mentioned saving firehouses. Were these the same firehouses she was chastised for taking credit?

Questions persist. Perhaps County is starting to recognize that Liz Crowley is unfit for public office? We know Speaker Quinn isn’t happy with her fraudulent scheming.

In City Council, you can’t take personal responsibility and issue press statements without ensuring the money is in the budget.

Rescuing a firehouse from the brink of closure is an effort of everyone involved in the Council from the Speaker, the finance committee, to the budget negotiating team, not just Liz Crowley.

Her ineptitude cut much-needed funds for community groups and neighborhood projects.

Do you want Liz Crowley overseeing your district  with your money?
