Na na nana Na Na nana, Hey hey Goodbye
Looks like Bob Holden, Christina Wilkinson, Tony Nuziato and special guest appearances by Tony Avella have achieved what they wanted. St. Saviour’s is being demolished because of their inability and unwillingness to work with others.
Do you know what Bob, Christina and the two Tonys won for our community?
Behind Door Number 1 – Maspeth could win a Storage facility! Not only a storage facility, but a 24 hour a day storage facility. STOP and STOR! Yes folks, you will be delighted to see row upon rows of luxury sheds utilized by transient people who will rent these glorified garages to store their stuff. Great job Bob!
Behind Door Number 2 – Maspeth could win a recycling facility! Maspeth will be home to millions of tons of recyclable glass, plastics and paper. Trucks will be coming in and out during all hours of the day to drop off their precious cargo for processing. Way to Go Juniper Park Civic Association!
The developer has decided to forget the zoning change and has decided to build “as of right”. And that means a facility that falls under the manufacturing description. Nice job Mr. Holden.
This is what happens when the community allows a small band of narrow-minded non-compromising misfits to speak for the entire community. Instead of getting a reasonable development with new housing that would have included a component for the preservation of the church; we get a large recycling plant or a massive storage facility!
Once again, Holden’s tactics have backfired and the ones who will suffer are the poor people of our community. So when you drive by the Recycling plant or the storage facility make sure you thank Robert Holden, Christina Wilkinson, Tony Nuziato and Tony Avella for their complicity in this debacle.
“The narrow-minded who undertake any work will never be satisfied. They cannot understand the actions of those who are large hearted and broad-minded.”

Failures in our community:
All chose allegiance to a vindictive narrow-minded group of maniacs instead of to their communities. All will pay when they community calls for them to step down from any leadership positions they hold.
This is not a threat........ It's a promise.
