I will be voting for Michelle Caruso-Cabrera. Michelle will be a great asset, she has the ear of President Trump, she has resided in a Trump property, a factor that will facilitate her access to the highest (if now somewhat degraded) echelons of power. AOC is rather unfriendly to real estate developers and union-busters like Amazon and speaks unkindly about Queens native Trump. Disqualifying. All my Wall Street colleagues concur.

Hope not another term. We need a business friendly person and the one who doesn’t call on defunding the police. Businesses employ people who live and work in this city. This city suffered enough due to virus lockdown. We don’t need a politician who wants to make things even worse and divide us even more.

God willing the people in her districts will now see her for what she is and remember what she has done for them and all NY’ers. Which is nothing good and plenty bad and plenty of nothing. Like the loss of 20 freakin billion dollars in tax revenue from the loss of Amazon moving their NY headquarters here as well as all the jobs that were lost. She isn’t solely responsible for that but she certainly could have helped prevent it. The voters were hoodwinked by a pretty face with no political experience whatsoever. She has garnered national attention due to her sheer pomposity and grandstanding. God forbid she gets a greater foothold in congress by another term. Hopefully the people in her districts have learned enough to prevent that from happening. BTW at the beginning she was raw and unfiltered and anyone could see what she was about. But she has slowly but surely polished her act, obviously is being helped with that by more experienced pols. When she started it took all of 1 minute to see her. Now it takes a a few minutes of her dancing around with words to get a bead on her positions. And they benefit no one. Just remember this is the woman who rallied for no more cars, no more air travel, totally renewable energy sources such as solar wind etc. and other truly delusional ideas ALL WITHIN TEN YEARS TIME!!!!! The pomposity is strong with this one. You can build a new facade on a dilapidated building, but underneath you still have a building destined to collapse.

Her disregard for our community (which has never been “her” community) alone should be reason enough that voters reject her.

Let’s not make the same mistake twice.
