Holden Gets the Cold Shoulder
The Juniper Park Civic Association’s attempt to meet with a high ranking representative from the Department of Environment Protection has been flushed down the sewer. A call was received by the arrogant and unremorseful Bobby Holden informing him that the DEP was calling off the meeting.
This is what happens when you refuse to conduct yourself in a professional and respectable manner. It doesn’t matter if it is in the private sector or public sector; people like to deal with others who exhibit some level of decorum. It has nothing to do with free speech or the suppression of inalienable rights. It has to do with the JPCA’s constant attacks, their on-going assault on their detractors and their unwillingness to represent their communities with dignity. Until there is a change in leadership, we fear that the JPCA will remain impotent and will not be able to effectively represent our communities.
Thankfully, there are other civic associations and local groups who do understand the importance of acting responsibly, respectfully and professionally. Therefore, the residents of Middle Village, Maspeth and Glendale do not need to worry. We hear through the grapevine that these organizations are working hard to ensure that the flooding problems are being presented to the powers that be and they are seeking real solutions. In addition, another meeting is forthcoming sometime in October so that the community can have their concerns addressed by the appropriate city agencies.
