We all know how dangerous Marty Golden can be behind the wheel of his car; we even know that he can be dangerous to others and is very unpredictable when he is a passenger in a chauffeur-driven car…..
There is plenty of documentary evidence that “Senator-Lead Foot” Marty Golden is especially dangerous to our children around their schools
Last week, in a jibe at John Quaglione for saying to the press that, in addition to everything else he has done, Marty Golden had advocated that all state senators should go back to Albany --- in an attempt to be funny at John Q’s expense, I made a terrible blunder; I said that the children living in State Senator Golden’s district would be safer if he stayed in Albany
--- NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH --- AND I DO ABJECTLY AND COMPLETELY APOLOGIZE TO ALL THE CHILDREN, THEIR PARENTS, AND TO THOSE ADVOCATES FOR CHILDREN, WHOM I HAD SO BLATANTLY MISS-SERVED IN MY MOMENT OF WORD-PLAY AND WHIMSY ---
--- STATE SENATOR MARTIN GOLDEN IS A FAR GREATER DANGER TO THE CHILDREN IN HIS DISTRICT, IN NEW YORK --- AND BY RIPPLE EFFECT, CHILDREN EVERYWHERE --- WHEN HE IS IN ALBANY FUNCTIONING AS A NEW YORK STATE SENATOR AND VICE-CHAIRMAN OF THE REPUBLICAN “MAJORITY” CONFERENCE OF THE NEW YORK STATE SENATE --- IN WHICH POSITIONS HE HAS NOW REPEATEDLY FOILED TWO MAJOR PIECES OF CHILD-PROTECTION LEGISLATION:THE CHILD VICTIMS ACT (PROTECTION AGAINST PEDOPHILES) --- AND --- THE EVERY SCHOOL SPEED CAMERA ACT (PROTECTION FOR CHILDREN AGAINST HIGH-SPEED DRIVERS AROUND SCHOOLS) ---
It’s been widely reported that --- “… ‘As the rest of America continues to decry sexual abuse and harassment, [State Senator Martin] Golden remains firmly planted on the wrong side of history, allowing hidden predators to continue inflicting pain and damage on our communities,’ said Steve Jimenez, a founding member of New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators, which organized the demonstration [at Golden’s Bay Ridge office]. ‘The inaction of him and his Republican colleagues in the Senate is a disgrace, and New Yorkers are making it known they have had have enough.” By comparison, State Senator Golden recently almost seemed nonchalant and blaze on the issue saying that he didn’t see an “impetus” to pass any legislation last year . Julianne McShane went on to observe that “The bill is currently stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee and still has no floor vote scheduled — a fact protesters in Albany decried the day the legislature returned from its mid-winter break on Feb. 27, complaining that Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan wasn’t allowing the bill to come to the floor….” (See e.g. “Locals call for Golden to support legislation protecting victims of child sex crimes” by Julianne McShane, 3/2/18, Courier Life’s Brooklyn Daily [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/9/br-golden-child-victims-act-protest-2018-03-02-bk.html]).
Almost the identical pattern has been followed by State Senator Marty Golden in his opposition to protecting children around schools by the use of speed-cams (that issue has recently been quite well covered by the media as a whole, and by this blog in particular).
So you see --- whether it's pedophiles or speeding cars around schools, Marty Golden treats it all like it's no problem worth doing anything about --- that is a very bad situation indeed for our children and grand-children.
