HOW LONG HAS THE KNAPP STREET PLANT BEEN A ROUTINE GENERATOR OF BAD SMELLS ??? HOW LONG HAS MARTY GOLDEN BEEN A STATE SENATOR AND TOLD PEOPLE THAT IT NEEDED TO BE FIXED ??? >>> YOU DO THE MATH >>> WHICH IS LONGER [Hint --- there are some things that have been around even longer than Marty Golden's career as an elected official]
So today, Monday, February 1st, 2016, in the Twenty-first Century, in the Third Millennium of the current era, SSMG or somebody on his crack staff put out this gem: "THIS MORNING I HAVE SENT AN OFFICIAL REQUEST.... TO ADDRESS THE STRONG AND FOUL ODORS COMING FROM THE KNAPP STREET SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT...."
>>> But that isn't the best part. Our really on top of things State Senator made his attempt at channeling Cicero in his peroration >>> WAIT FOR IT -- WAIT FOR IT <<< ".... WE MUST BRING AN END TO THESE SMELLS AND CHECK THE AIR QUALITY IN THE AREA."
OMG !!! Why didn't some other office holder or politician think of that, maybe even a whole generation sooner >>> I don't know, maybe somebody exactly like a NYC Councilmember and later a NYS Senator, let's say somebody exactly like Marty Golden. Hmmm, who might fill the bill for that ???
I kid you not, earlier TODAY, either State Senator Martin Golden or his staff's crack PR guy really did send this out : "This morning I have sent an official request to New York City Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Emily Lloyd and have sent a copy to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, requesting an onsite meeting to address the strong and foul odors coming from the Knapp Street Sewage Treatment Plant. We must bring an end to these smells and check air quality in the area."
I think I've said enough about this already. But somebody needs to dig into this a bit, just so we can find out how big a joker SSMG really is; and to see whether Golden and his peeps really think that ".... You can fool some of the people all of the time...."
