In the wake of L.A.W.'s direct mailing to the Creston Heights neighborhood surrounding the contaminated Monroe Avenue Water Filtration Plant (click here and here for details), General George a.k.a. Mayor Heartwell launched a counter-offensive through that neighborhood on Monday. He touted to local residents all the goodies the City has provided them over the past several years while he shamelessly ignored the unlicensed hazardous waste landfill the Boardwalk developers created at their doorstep and the role he played on the City Commission six years ago to make that possible.
Perhaps the most disgusting utterance Heartwell made during his campaign was his vow to fight for more taxpayer hand-outs to community activists "until God's reign of justice permeates our world." Self-righteousness is always obnoxious, but it is particularly vile when in service to a strategy to divert public attention from the City's alliance with the Boardwalk developers to crush all attempts to remedy the illegal hazardous waste dumping at the filtration plant. (Click here and here for that story.)
Let General George know his reminders about libraries and community centers already built do not make us forget about the unlicensed hazardous waste landfill the City let the Boardwalk developers create in our midst. E-mail him today.
