Curses foiled again!
Friends of the South Side Park or as we like to call them “The angry white folks club” were dealt a final blow on Wednesday when their lawsuit against the recreation center was tossed by the five-member New York state Appellate court. Writing for the court Judge J. Kavanagh wrote “that all three causes of actions were reviewed and found to be without merit, and sustained the ruling of the lower court.”
Judge J. Kavanagh went on to add” As such, we cannot conclude that this decision, as it was issued, constituted an abuse of the City Council’s discretion,”
So in the end the lawsuit was little more than smoke and mirrors and much ado about nothing and the court was clearly able to see that.
In what can only be called bizarre ANDREW J. BERNSTEIN, cub reporter for The Saratogian wrote the Mayor ‘had been called out for wrong priorities by mayoral candidate and Commissioner of Public Safety Ron Kim” Called out, what is that supposed to mean? I understand criticized or objected to, but called out, to what pistols at fifty paces? One could also argue the Mayoral race was as much a referendum on the building of the Rec center as it was who should lead the city and the voices of the citizens spoke loudly and strongly by a margin of 1500 “yes to the rec center”. All of that is water under the bridge now with construction well under way; the poor children of long neglected Jefferson Terrace can look forward to a wonderful spring in their new building. So the angry white folks of Friends of the South Side Park gave it a shot and lost, now deal with it.
