You're not invited, kid.
Great Caesar’s Ghost! Tony’s latest invitation is raising some eyebrows.
Looks like there’s no room for a certain civic organization at Senator Tony Avella’s Whitestone Town Hall Meeting.
Why wasn’t Devon O’Connor’s Welcome to Whitestone civic invited?
Why are people shunned from civic participation, especially young people that perform valuable service to the community?
Could this be a manifestation of the longstanding beef between Dan Halloran and Tony Avella?
How many balloons will it take for Senator Avella to lighten up?
Event invites are always a strategic decision.
Luckily Mr. O’Connor is taking it all in stride.
From Welcome to Whitestone:
*WELCOME TO WHITESTONE MEMBERS NOT INVITED TO SENATOR AVELLA’S WHITESTONE TOWN HALL MEETING*
Recently, a mailer went out from NYS Senator Tony Avella’s office inviting the community to attend a Town Hall Meeting hosted by Senator Tony Avella and co-hosted by local civic associations. This meeting will take place Thursday, May 17th at P.S. 193 152-20 11th Avenue in Whitestone from 7:00pm to …9:00pm.
After viewing the invitation, it is apparent that the WTW Membership is not invited. I just got off the phone with Senator Avella’s Cheif of Staff hoping for an explanation and all he said was “i’ll have to ask the Senator and I will call you back”.
If and when he calls, I will give you an update! Have a great weekend and don’t forget to tell mom you love her
