The BLOC will soon run ths County. The South needs to secede from the North or we will be next. BTW he do they get away with having all these areas with no so much as one Black, Hispanic or for that matter any Christain in their Villages and neighborhoods? If the Christains made it uncomfortable for this element the DOJ, the NYS Attorney General and the Press would be all over them.

Frankie Bones will be out of business come next election day because of his unconscionable support of Alex Gromack. I am now sorry I sent him a check but will not make that mistake again.

I am expecting good things from Chris Carey and nothing from Aney Paul.

Becase their racist regime is supported by our politicians. See "failedmessiah.com" for what is happening in Israel. The Hasidic are more of a threat than Islamic extremists.

Cris Carey's first test will be with the proposed QuickChek in Bardonia. Many of us are waiting to see if he will appear before the Planning Board, of which he is now a former member, and speak with Dr. Hull and Mr. Lynch in support of his constituents in getting something better for the residents of Bardonia.
