Behind every physician and health care center there are individuals behind the scenes who are responsible for the care and delivery of services. These individuals are the health care managers and administrators. These individuals are often overlooked yet play an essential roll in the care and treatment that people receive. One individual that has excelled in this area is Jason Maffia. Mr. Jason Maffia has worked diligently to develop and implement systems and service in order to enhance the quality of care at the Medisys Center as well as work on proving the community with outstanding medical services.

NYC Labor: United To Create Change For All By Vincent AlVArez Each Labor Day, we pay tribute to the hardworking men and women who keep our city up and running. Whether they educate our children, construct and protect our buildings, run City agency operations, or maintain the City’s aging infrastructure, we salute their commitment to providing quality, dignified service. It’s no secret that this has been a turbulent year for working people. Throughout our country, the rights and benefits of working people have been under attack. From Michigan, to Chicago, to New Jersey, working people have had to fight to ensure that they get what they need to get by. Workers in the city are continuing to fight for increased safety regulations at construction sites, and fair wages and benefits for the workers who provide vital care services for our city’s aged and infirm. And as local schools prepare to open their doors for students, teachers and other municipal employees are still without a valid contract. Despite these challenges, however, we have continued to make strides for workers. For the first time ever, New

been allowed undue influence on the way our city is run. It is about time that all working people got a say in the political process. Our efforts this Labor Day are utilizing the strength and resources of everyday, hardworking people, for the benefit of working New Yorkers. That’s the difference between Labor’s efforts, and the pro-big business PACs, accepting exorbitant amounts of money from corporations seeking even greater influence in City politics. We are confident that the candidates we are supporting will do right by working people. We have had 12 years of an administration that has chosen to favor the interests of the wealthy over the needs of everyday working people and their families. All of our elected officials must deal fairly with all workers because, after all, it’s our working people who make New York the greatest city in the world. Vincent Alvarez is president of the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, which represents more than 300 unions and 1.3 million workers in the New York City Metropolitan area.

NBA Guard Royal Ivey Returns to Hollis BY NATALIA KOZIKOWSKA
Last weekend, NBA point guard Royal Ivey returned to his hometown in Hollis to re-launch his annual threeday summer workshop, the “Defending Your Dream” skills clinic. For six years, the NBA star and his parents, Rod and Jennifer Ivey, have been giving back to the community with the clinic that not only helps kids perfect their basketball skills, but also stresses the importance of education, respect, discipline and teamwork. In addition to playing in competitions and running drills, the children, ages 8-14, have access to a number of workshops like character building and career guidance, nutrition counseling and financial literacy. “I wanted to do something that catered to life skills and basketball,” said Ivey, who played for the Philadelphia 76ers last season. “Life is not just about basketball – there are other things.

Badminton Booming At College Point Court BY JOE MARVILLI
If you head over to 119th Street in College Point, you would find what looks like the offices and warehouses of the JAD Corporation. However, behind one of these doors lie not boxes, machines or equipment. Instead, you will find the College Point Badminton Court. The court, found at 20-24 119th St., came into existence due to the interest of JAD CEO and president Joseph Dussich, an empty warehouse with the right dimensions and a growing fan base in Queens for the sport. College Point Badminton Court has been open for four years. In that time, it has added more than 1,000 members, according to one of the owners, Kevin Ng. He attributed this success to the organization’s three tournaments each year, their open courts available for rental and badminton’s growing influence among the Asian population. “We have members from New Jersey, from Connecticut. We even have people from Virginia, because of our reputation,” Ng said. “Right now, in America, new immigrants from the Asian countries really love this sport and we try to promote it.” Dussich had an open warehouse that was not in use as part of JAD’s
manufacturing. While visiting San Francisco, he became intrigued by a badminton court with which one of his friends was involved. He said he also felt the popularity of the sport was booming in the Asian community, partially due to China winning the Gold Medal in badminton in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. The biggest challenge when trying to create a badminton court is having a space big enough in height and width with no obstructions, like columns, in the middle. Luckily for Dussich, his available warehouse fit federation regulations. “I contacted an Asian real estate agency, told them I had a building available that would be perfect for badminton,” he said. “I spoke with the owners of the business and I liked what they had to say. They were community-minded. I’m very community-minded.” With many kids in College Point and Flushing just a bus ride away, the court’s success has been good not only for business, but for the surrounding neighborhoods as well. “It’s a great community activity,” Dussich said. “It keeps you in good shape, keeps you off the streets and it’s very competitive.” Reach Joe Marvilli at (718) 3577400, Ext. 125, firstname.lastname@example.org, or @Joey788.

CD 19 Candidates Denounce Mailers BY JOE MARVILLI Staff Writer When the Democratic candidates for the City Council District 19 seat meet up, sparks fly as they argue about what is best for the district. On Aug. 27 though, four of the candidates united to condemn a mudslinging campaign by Jobs for New York, the political action committee that has endorsed Paul Vallone. Candidates Austin Shafran, Paul Graziano, John Duane and Chrissy Voskerichian came together with State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) to denounce what they see as an attempt by the Real Estate Board to buy the election through the Jobs for New York PAC. In addition, they criticized Vallone for not speaking out against the attack flyers. One piece out of the five released used a quote from a local newspaper in 2001, which said that Graziano spouts “inflammatory nonsense.” The

City Planning Approves Willets Point Project BY TRIshA sAkhuJA Staff Writer The City Planning Commission voted in favor of a much-debated development project across the street from Citi Field, where auto shop owners have run their small businesses as a group for decades. The soon-to-be built mega-mall along 126th Street and mixed use complex development is undertaking Phase One of its process, put forth by a $3 billion private investment by the Queens Development Corp, a joint venture of Sterling Equities and Related Companies. During the CPC’s public meeting on Aug. 21, the 13-member panel voted in favor of the project. “Willets Point is on its way to becoming remediated and ultimately becoming an active and inviting destination,” Chairwoman Amanda Burden said. The only board member to vote against the project was Michelle de la Uz, who questioned the need to build another mega-mall, especially at this location, which legally is a public park and is in close proximity to the Sky View Center. Ivan Contreras, a community organizer for the Queens Housing Coalition, said they were expecting to hear more recommendations from the commissioners in regards to the affordable housing portion of the redevelopment project.
“Maybe they don’t care about what is going on in the Borough,” Contreras said. “We still have no legal guarantee and only hear verbal agreements about affordable housing.” Aside from the lack of affordable housing portion of the redevelopment plan, de la Uz also criticized the “questionable and weak” attempts to relocate more than 100 minorityowned small businesses. Marco Neira, the president of the Sunrise Co-Op, said the rent payouts provided by the additional $3 million fund put in place by the Economic Development Corp. is not nearly enough to survive. “They say they will pay for relocation and our rent costs for up to a year, but it is still not enough,” Neira said. Queens Borough President Helen Marshall approved the project in its entirety in late June, which entails cleaning up the site, constructing retail development, office and residential space, while building on its close proximity to the sporting venue with access to mass transit. Of those units, 35 percents will be affordable for low-income families. Within the next 50 days, the City Council will vote on plans to redevelop the Willets Point area.

Malcolm Smith (D-Hollis) and Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Whitestone), respectively, who were arrested earlier this year. Neither Shafran nor Voskerichian have been accused of any wrongdoing. “Anyone who benefits from these reprehensible attacks and fails to denounce them is as bad as the people
behind those attacks,” Shafran said. “Anyone who sits on the sidelines while their political opponents have their character and integrity called into question shows that they lack the character and integrity worthy of representing this community.” “[Vallone] was quoted in the Daily News yesterday saying, ’We have nothing to do with this campaign.’ Well, if you have nothing to do with it, why should you have a problem saying this is wrong?” asked Graziano. “Paul Vallone should be ashamed of the actions that Jobs for New York has taken on his behalf, but clearly he has no shame,” Voskerichian said. Vallone’s spokesman Austin Finan said the campaign was not supervising Jobs for New York. “By law, candidates have no control over outside spending, nor can they coordinate with expenditure efforts,” Finan said. “Those opponents of Paul Vallone who repeatedly lie about these facts continue to demonstrate they lack the honesty and integrity to represent northeast Queens in the City Council.” Reach Joe Marvilli at (718) 3577400, Ext. 125, email@example.com, or @Joey788.
Pols Call For Permanent Rockaway Ferry Service BY LuIs GROndA Staff Writer The Rockaway Ferry has been extended into next year and now two elected officials are calling on all mayoral candidates to support its permanent service. Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park) and Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Ozone Park) are asking every candidate running for Mayor to sign a pledge backing the service that runs from the Rockaways to Manhattan. Last week, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the ferry would continue to run until Jan. 31, 2014. Although both Ulrich and Goldfeder said they were elated about that announcement, they are asking for the candidates’ support as the next Mayor will decide if the ferry will continue to serve commuters past early next year. “Our constituents deserve permanent ferry service and the future Mayor of our great city is the only one who can guarantee that,” Ulrich said. In a press release issued by Ulrich’s office, Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D-Manhattan) and Republi-
can candidate Joe Lhota both said they would support keeping the ferry fulltime. “When I’m Mayor, I’ll make that ferry permanent, and make sure it stays at the current $2 fare,” Quinn said in a statement. “Making this ferry service permanent will make a big difference in improving the quality of life for New Yorkers,” Lhota said. Dani Lever, a spokeswoman for Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson, said they would evaluate the service before making any permanent decisions on it. “Bill Thompson supports and would continue the ferry service to the Rockaways, but would evaluate ridership as well as meet with the community before making long-term decisions,” she said in an email. The Bill de Blasio, John Liu and Sal Albanese campaigns also said they support making the ferry permanent. The ferry, located at Beach 108th Street and Beach Channel Drive in the Rockaways, costs $2 to ride, cheaper than the $2.50 subway fare.

Queens TrIbune endorsemenTs Queens Borough President Democratic Primary
Queens is the fastest growing County in the City, and as we look toward an uncertain financial future, the Borough requires a strong, independent voice that will fight to ensure that Queens gets its fair share in comparison to the rest of the City. We have no doubt that both Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. and former Councilwoman Melinda Katz would serve as strong advocates for the people of Queens. But only one of these candidates stands out more as an independent leader, whose voice will be heard not just in Queens, but throughout the City. While we disagree on some issues – Stop and Frisk being an important example – Peter Vallone Jr. has spent his time as a City Councilman doing what he believed was right to fight for the people of Queens. Melinda Katz is a capable candidate, who has proven herself extremely knowledgeable with regards to zoning and land use. However, her strong connection to and dependence on real estate developers in both this campaign and her previous campaign for Comptroller gives us some pause. As Borough President, we believe Vallone will ensure Queens has someone who will stand above the crowd and have his voice heard at City Hall. The Queens Tribune endorses Peter Vallone Jr.
City Council District 19 Democratic Primary
For the past few months, the 19th City Council District has had an absentee official, as the man elected to represent this district awaits trial on fraud charges and seems more interested in setting up business for his post-Council career. District 19 needs a fresh start and this primary is an opportunity to move past a stormy present. The district needs someone with experience in governmental affairs,
someone who knows how the system works, someone who will make sure the district receives its share of funds from City Hall. Having worked for both former U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, we believe Austin Shafran will give the 19th District the type of leadership it needs to properly represent his constituents. The Queens Tribune endorses Austin Shafran.
District 22 Democratic Primary
A number of strong candidates seek to replace the term-limited Peter Vallone Jr., with hopes of representing one of the fastest-growing areas in the Borough. The district requires an experienced hand who will continue the work to better the district. With a decade’s worth of service on Community Board 1 and time as a member of the School Board in Astoria previous to that, Constantinos “Gus” Prentzas has a wealth of experience dealing with issues important to the district. While his main competition for the seat, district leader Costa Constantinides, has also proven to be a valuable asset to the community, we believe Prentzas is the right independent choice to lead the district as its next Councilman. The Queens Tribune endorses Constantinos “Gus” Prentzas.
District 24 Democratic Primary
One of a number of districts that will welcome a new face thanks to term-limited Councilmen, District 24 will benefit from an experienced hand. In his time as an Assemblyman, Rory Lancman always fought for his constituents, and we believe he will continue to do so as a member of the City Council. We believe he is the right individual for the job, although we hope that on the City Council, he will learn to work better with his fellow Council members to get what is best for his constituents. The Queens Tribune endorses Rory Lancman.
In Your opInIon Time To Speak Out On Egypt
Dear Mr. President: s the crisis in Egypt continues to escalate, I and many of the constituents I represent in my Assembly District are deeply troubled over the rise of anti-Christian persecution in said country. A recent hate campaign initiated by Islamists in Cairo included the torching and looting of a Franciscan school. Three nuns were paraded through the streets, humiliated and harassed. Two other women employed by the school were sexually abused as they fought for their lives against the angry mob.
Unfortunately, this is but one incident among countless others throughout the region as churches, businesses and homes owned by the Coptic Christian minority are continuously under attack from supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood retaliating against the military’s removal of President Mohammed Morsi. We in the Jewish community know all too well the destructive power of unrelenting intolerance and hate. As a Jew, just one generation removed from the Holocaust, I am reminded of the infamous night in 1938, Kristallnacht. The Nazis conducted a coordinated

pogrom against German and Austrian Jews. Synagogues, businesses, hospitals and schools were ransacked and 30,000 Jews were sent to concentration camps. While much of the civilized world including the United States condemned these actions, they stood still as Hitler and his regime were allowed to amass global influence leading to the extermination of six million Jews and hundreds of thousands of homosexuals, Gypsies and handicapped. We must not remain silent! History is once again repeating itself. The Coptic Christians of Egypt are facing their own Kristallnacht 75 years after the Jews of Germany and Austria.

As the leader of the free world, you must take a strong position against this bloodshed. These extremists are intent on promoting an agenda of religious subjugation and disregarding the rule of law. Even if one were to believe that the Muslim Brotherhood came to power democratically as Adolph Hitler did, we must also remember that democracy without respect for all its citizens is mob rule. The United States must stand with the Coptic Christians and send a clear message to the world that those who wish to exercise their beliefs can do so without fear. Assemblyman Michael Simanòwitz

Queens Undocumented Youth Speak Out
By Trisha sakhuja Staff Writer Hopeful young undocumented immigrants shared their stories with Public Advocate candidate Reshma Saujani and Assemblyman Francisco Moya (D-Jackson Heights) at a town hall titled, “DREAMers for Reshma,” on Aug. 22 at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights. “When I think about who inspires me, it’s the DREAMers,” Saujani said. “They have so much to lose—so much more to lose than all of us [with
status]—but they are out there fighting everyday.” When Razeen Zaman, 23, a resident of Jackson Heights, said she found out at the age of 14 that she and her family are undocumented immigrants, she was angry and confused, but was asked to remain silent about her status. She also found out that she would not be able to apply for a work permit, a driver’s license or receive financial aid for college like all of her other friends were doing at the time. Zaman said she wanted to continue
her education after high school and never thought otherwise. Therefore, she did not allow her status to come in the way of her 4.0 grade point average during her time at Sarah Lawrence College or her admission to law school. Now a campaign organizer for the New York State Youth Leadership Council, Zaman was one of the first undocumented youth to transcribe what is now the NYS Dream Act. “Oppression is not my permanent condition,” Zaman said. “Being public about your status is the safest thing to
do because you build trust and community around your story.” Zaman, along with 15 undocumented youth, traveled by foot for nine days to Albany from the City to advocate for the Dream Act, as a grassroots effort not common to many. She said they all had to express the urgency of passing this bill because their parents did not “cross the oceans for their kids to be denied the right for education.” Reach Trisha Sakhuja at (718) 3577400, Ext. 128, firstname.lastname@example.org, or @Tsakhuja13.
Mattone, Civics Meet On Chain Restaurants By Trisha sakhuja Staff Writer The developer of a series of proposed chain restaurants being built in Elmhurst faced criticism of the project during a meeting Tuesday night. On Aug. 27, members of Community Board 4 and the Newtown Civic Association met with Carl Mattone, president of the Mattone Group, to clarify concerns to help bridge a communication gap pertaining to the project’s development. The development will bring three restaurants – Longhorn Steakhouse,
Olive Garden and Joe’s Crab Shack – to a former parking lot near the Queens Center Mall. When the Mattone Group originally purchased the land, 13 years ago, the plans called for a new movie theater and a proposed senior center at the site of the Elmwood Theatre. When the original plans began to break down, community members began to feel misled about the scope of the project. Mattone noted that “there is a lot of misinformation about this project,” because it has seen a number of complicated scenarios that were out of his
control. He added that despite the new project’s smaller scope, the three restaurants proposed would bring close to 300 permanent jobs to the area. While Audrey Galligan, a longtime CB4 member, questioned the need for three more restaurants in an area “loaded with restaurants,” Mattone said he believed the project fit the needs of the community. Robert Valdes-Clausell, a member of the Newtown Civic Association, charged that the project has seen “a lack of transparency,” adding that too many questions were left unanswered. “Even though Mattone was pres-
ent at the meeting, he was not able to answer many of the legal questions because he said he is not a lawyer,” Valdes-Clausell said. Valdes-Clausell said the developer purchased the land for below market value contingent on donating land for the senior center. Mattone responded to the criticism saying that the property was bought at fair market value at the time. “The City doesn’t even give ice away during the winter,” Mattone said.

Immigration Guide Removing Immigration Nightmares There are solutions to problems immigrants frequently experience. Among the problems and solutions are the following: 1. GETTING MARRIED TO A US CITIZEN OR GREEN CARD HOLDER AND BEING ABUSED OR ABANDONED BY THE SPOUSE: If you are married to a US Citizen or green card holder who is abusive or has abandoned you, you may be entitled to a work permit and green card even if you are divorced or have a criminal record. You do not need your spouse to file for you or sponsor you or attend the interview with you. This relief is also applicable to child (including step child), fiance and parent of US citizens or green card holder. You can also get relief if you are married to a citizen or green card holder who was already married but did not divorce before marrying you, that is, a bigamy or polygamy situation. 2. PARENTS OF US CITIZEN WANTING TO WORK AND MAINTAIN THEIR CHILDREN: Are you a parent of a US Citizen Child or Green card holder? You may be administratively approved for a work permit to enable you to maintain your family? This is an administrative relief subject to discretion of the government officials. 3. ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO THE US: This is a major problem but there is relief for special immigrants married to a US Citizen or green card holder or those who have US citizen children. You may still get a work permit and green card. 4. ILLEGAL REENTRY AFTER DEPORTATION: Did you enter the US after being deported? This is a crime. There is relief for special immigrants married to a US Citizen or green card holder. Hurry to talk to us before you are arrested. You may be entitled to relief? 5. THE DREAM: YOUNG PERSONS IMMIGRATION: Apart from the Dream Act announcement by President Obama which is only temporary, there are lots of permanent opportunities for young persons particularly those living with people
who are not their natural parents. If you are a child living with a guardian or someone else other than your parent, you may be entitled to a work permit and or green card. 6. CRIMINAL RECORDS: WAIVERS AND PARDONS: If you are convicted or pled guilty to a crime in the past it can generate complexities and be a nightmare but waivers and various special actions and legal procedures are available to relieve immigrants with past criminal records. 7. REMOVING 2-YEAR CONDITIONAL GREENCARD: Many immigrants have found it difficult to remove conditions on their 2 year green cards either because they are not able to convince the government that their marriage is genuine or because they are not getting cooperation from their spouse. We can help remove conditions on your greencard, even if your spouse is not filing with you and even if you have been denied and placed in a removal proceeding. You need not wait for 2 years if you are abused by your spouse or if your spouse died. 8. ASYLUM PROBLEMS AND DEPORTATION ORDERS: Do you have deportation order on you that makes you a fugitive? Hurry to talk to us before you are picked up by Detention and Removal Office (DRO). Your deportation may be suspended and get work permit & green card. 9. APPROVALS AND VISA BULLETIN PROBLEMS: Do you have an approved petition filed by your brother or sister, parents etcs and you were unable to apply for a green card because you overstayed here in US? Call us now. We might be able to assist you.
10. NOTICE TO APPEAR (NTA) IN IMMIGRATION COURT AND IMMIGRATION COURT PROCEEDINGS: Did you receive NTA from the government or are you currently in immigration court? Consider speaking to us for a great first or second opinion and resolution of your case. You will not regret calling. 11. DO YOU NEED A WORK PERMIT, IDENTIFICATION CARD AND FOREIGN TRAVEL PERMIT? You may be entitled. 12. CBP AND TSA PROBLEMS: Correcting travel records- US-VISIT, ADIS Records, Enforce/Indent Records, DHS-TRIP, and CLASS etc. Citizens and green card holders can remove names from CLASS 13. CITIZENSHIP AND CITIZENSHIP DELAYS OR DENIALS: Did you apply for citizenship and you are being denied or unnecessarily delayed? Call us to enforce your rights in Federal Court. 14. WE PROCESS ALIEN WORKERS, STUDENTS, ENTREPRENEURS AND BUSINESS IMMIGRATION 15. WE PROCESS CHANGE AND EXTENSION OF STATUS 16. WE PROCESS ORPHAN AND ADOPTION PETITIONS 17.

POLICE BLOTTER 103rd Precinct Sexual aSSault – The NYPD is asking the public’s assistance with the whereabouts and identity of the following individual wanted for a sexual assault. At 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 18, inside the South Jamaica Housing Development, a Black male approached a 13-year-old female victim and followed her to the elevator. While inside the elevator, the suspect sexually assaulted the victim. When they reached the victim’s floor, the victim screamed and the suspect fled the elevator to parts unknown. The suspect is described as between 20-25 years old, 5-foot-8 with a thin build. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, black and white T-shirt and a black and white baseball cap.
112th Precinct Rape – The NYPD is asking the public’s assistance identifying a suspect wanted for a rape. At approximately 10 p.m. on Aug. 23, the victim, a 52-year-old female, was exiting the R train on 63rd Drive and Queens Boulevard when the suspect began asking for her name and phone number. The victim refused and walked to a pharmacy on 63rd Drive. The suspect followed the victim into the store and started to harass her inside the store. After the suspect left the store, the victim left the pharmacy while the suspect stood waiting outside for her. The suspect followed the victim, and, in front of 63-45 Saunders Street, the suspect grabbed her, threw her down a flight of steps and raped her. The suspect then removed the victim’s cell phone and purse. EMS transported the victim to an area hospital. The suspect is described as a Black male in his 20s, 5-foot-7 with a moustache. The suspect told the victim his name was “Junior.”
aSSault on a police officeR – At 4:18 p.m. on Aug. 22, a

The victim chased the suspect back to the truck and was subsequently dragged by the truck as it fled. The victim received minor injuries and refused medical attention at the scene. It was later discovered, after obtaining the license plate of the Ford, that the truck was reported stolen on Aug. 20 from West Palm Beach, Fla., and that a .38 caliber revolver was in the truck when it was stolen. Later on Aug. 22, at approximately 8:50 p.m., officers observed the truck traveling southbound on Crescent Street, in the vicinity of Broadway. The uniformed officers attempted to pull the truck over. Shots were fired and one of the officers was struck by the truck as it fled the scene. Both officers were removed to Cornell Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, where they were treated and released. The vehicle was later found on 24th Street, in the vicinity of 37th Avenue. During a canvass of the area, a cell phone was discovered and the suspect was identified as Gary Sarback, 61, of Lake Worth, Fla.

Union Workers, Library Clash Over Cleaning BY NATALIA KOZIKOWSKA Staff Writer Unionized custodians say they are being treated dirty by the Queens Library Administration. According to the Local 1321 of District Council 27, the library has been replacing union workers with lowerpaid private contractors to clean the Central Branch in Jamaica. Adding insult to injury, union leaders claim the cash-strapped library has been giving Administration employees hefty salaries and raises, which they speculate is being paid for by the library’s extra savings. According to John Hyslop, president of Local 1321, since 2011 the library spent $2.7 million in non-union administrative raises. “These aren’t tax dollars, these are City funds,” he said. “The City should be supporting jobs with a decent salary and benefits and pensions and not hiring a private company that pays minimum wage with no benefits and then keep the profit.” Hyslop also claims the Queens Library Administration gave $340,000 in raises to its non-union staff and between April 2011 and May 2012, the Queens Library president and CEO earned $379,313 – citing the website Seethroughny.net as his primary source.
Although it has not been confirmed, Hyslop and union workers have heard rumors that these hiring practices are also being used at other branches. “I’ve heard rumors that now they [private contractors] are now being used at Flushing [Library],” he told the Queens Tribune. But Joanne King, communications director for Queens Library, questioned the validity of those figures, arguing that “there is no way to determine that” and that the numbers sounded “odd.” King, however, did not deny that a part of the library’s savings may have been allocated to staffers. “It [the money saved] is part of the library’s operating budget and is used to provide public service,” she said in an email. “Every dollar is either allocated to books, to staff, to utilities or similar.” Although Hyslop and union workers said they feel that hiring private contractors jeopardizes the quality of work, the Administration feels otherwise and defended their decision to hire hourly-rate contract cleaners to supplement full-time union custodians. “In July, the Library increased the number of libraries being cleaned by hourly-rate contractors from 7 to 8,” the library said in an emailed statement. “The Library employs 71 fulltime custodians who are valued mem-
bers of the team and who provide a range of critical services above and beyond that of hourly-rate contract cleaners. No custodians have lost their jobs as a result of increasing hourlyrate contract cleaning.” Local leaders have also chimed in on the debate. Last month, Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights) wrote a letter to Galante, the library’s CEO and president, expressing his opposition to contract out custodial work instead of renewing con-
tracts for union custodians. “I truly believe in the Queens Library’s mission to serve all of our many diverse communities. However, I feel that your efforts undermine union jobs for these very same community members run counter to your mission,” the Councilman wrote. Additional reporting by Joe Marvilli.

Quinn Stops In To Talk Mayoral Run BY JOE MARVILLI Staff Writer Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D-Manhattan) stopped by the Queens Tribune office to discuss her campaign and her goals for the City if elected Mayor. During her visit on Aug. 27, the mayoral candidate talked about everything from education to Stop and Frisk, from flooding to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Quinn spent some time touching on Queens-specific issues, such as the proposed developments for FMCP. While she does not have a position yet on the Major League Soccer stadium, since that proposal is still in limbo, she did speak at length on the Willets Point project. Quinn said that there needs to be a way for projects with provisions to be backed up by threats against developers if they do not come through. “In development agreements where there’s a requirement to do affordable housing or create jobs, we need to find a legal way to put claw back provisions in those deals,” she said. “If they don’t come through with what they committed, we claw back the money they got. The first time we claw it back, it’s not going to happen again.” Addressing the issue of the autoshop owners in Willets Points, she
hands-on assistance. Throughout her first term, Quinn said she would look into lengthening the school day as well. Quinn argued against the Bloomberg administration’s constant closing of schools, believing that while closures may occasionally be necessary, it is being done far too frequently and without a good system in place. “I think the problem is that school closings have become almost the policy, as if that’s something to be proud photo by LUIS GRoNDA of.

While some community leadintroduce a teacher training program ers and elected officials have said that where a senior teacher takes a break these moves would harm public safety, from the classroom to partner with Quinn disagreed. first-year teachers and give them “Some folks have said that the
choice has to be between being the safest big city in America or keeping people’s civil liberties intact. That does not have to be the choice at all,” she said. “The independent police monitoring legislation we passed last week will make sure we can be both those things.” Despite her stance on Stop and Frisk, Quinn thought Police Commissioner Ray Kelly did a good job overall and would consider keeping him on if he agreed to cut back on that program. In an effort to improve communication between neighborhoods and the police, Quinn would hire 1,600 new officers, giving the force more time to engage with the community. A personal issue for Quinn that has come up during this year’s election cycle is her temperament, which has been described as overly aggressive. Quinn did admit that she could be loud and pushy, she said it was sometimes necessary to get things done for the people of New York. “You want a New Yorker who’s tough. You want a New Yorker who’s pushy,” Quinn said. “You want a Mayor who’s tough enough to lead. You want a Mayor who’s smart enough to listen. You also want a Mayor who’s compassionate enough to care.” Reach Joe Marvilli at (718) 3577400, Ext. 125, email@example.com, or @Joey788.

Queens needs a fighter who believes in the rights of all her citizens—one who believes that the diversity of the borough is an asset, not a flaw. Someone who sees Queens as a mecca for immigrants to come and make a life for themselves and their families, while embracing those who have lived in Queens for generation after generation.
Melinda Katz is that candidate, and that is why we are endorsing her for Queens borough president.

Heroes and Villains
A mailer released by Melinda Katz’s Queens Borough President Campaign paints her opponent as right-wing super villain. The flyer calls Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., “Conservative Man,” which is a play on a flyer sent out by the Vallone campaign, which portrayed himself as a superhero fighting for the future of the Borough. The literature criticizes the Councilman for seeking out the Conservative Party support for his campaign, which Katz has attacked Vallone about prior to this mailer being sent out. This QConf reporter wonders if either of these Vallone superheroes can get into the upcoming Justice League movie. We can only imagine how they

school, "Trump University," calling the institution an "elaborate bait-and-switch" on unsuspecting students. Trump, who received word of the suit over the weekend, called Schneiderman a hack, and questioned, "What government agency ... has ever brought a suit on a Saturday?" Trump may want to focus less on timing and more on his school's curriculum...
Back on the Big Screen Looks like Martin Scorsese does not ‘depart’ far from what he’s good at. This time, the Queens-born Academy Award-winning director is producing yet another mafia film starring, you guessed it – Robert De Niro. The new movie marks the ninth time the two have collaborated.

Donald Trump At It Again Queens' richest son can't seem to keep himself away from controversy, which is probably just the way he likes it. Business mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump has turned a potential legal battle into a war of words with the state Attorney General. Earlier this week, reports indicated that AG Eric Schneiderman was suing Trump's investment

"The Family," which hits theaters Set. 20, follows De Niro and his family, who has to enter the witness protection program after snitching to feds about all of his mobster crime buddies. If this movie is anything like "Goodfellas" or "The Departed," the future of De Niro’s character is not looking too good…
Who knew the Mayor of New York dreamt of becoming a pianist? While Mayor Michael Bloomberg’soffhandedremarks Bloomberg suggesting NYCHA residents should b e f i n g e rprinted upon entering their buildings caused an outburst of criticism, he kept a low profile while visiting a new workspace studio for performing and visual artists. He watched a dance number by a modern dance troupe on Tuesday after the ribbon cutting ceremony of Spaceworks in Long Island City, where he recalled a story about trying to convince his parents to pay for piano lessons. He promised his parents he would practice every day, but had no luck convincing them of his conviction. But maybe his dream may come true after his term comes to an end this year. Here at QConf, we can’t help but wonder what could have been: imagine the “Piano Men” tour, Mikey Bloomberg and Billy Joel. Billy was right. Sometimes a fantasy is all you need…

A number of straphangers headed for Flushing-Main Street on the 7 train Tuesday morning were forced to walk down Roosevelt Avenue when signal problems stopped all trains at Willets Point. A number of walkers could see a 7 train (seen at left) stopped at the tunnel entrance by the Sky View Center. Who knows, maybe this is all part of Mayor Bloomberg's initiative to get people to walk more instead of taking public transportation...
Comedy had always been an attractive medium to Tony Deyo, but he never knew how to get into it. When he moved to Austin, Texas, though, he found the opportunity that would launch his career. “I saw that there was a comedy class at the club there. I knew that if I was ever going to try, that was the time to do it,” he said. “The class got me on stage, which I think is always the biggest hurdle.” From those days in a comedy class, the Virginia-born Deyo has quickly become a comedy favorite, having performed at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, on the Bob & Tom Radio Show and on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. His clean act, influenced by Jerry Seinfeld, has been a big hit with audiences. After leaving Austin, Deyo moved to Greensboro, NC and then to Astoria, a neighborhood that he said has a thriving comedy community. “In Astoria, I can throw a rock and hit two comedians' apartments,” he said. “When you're surrounded by incredibly talented people, it really makes you want to work harder.” That hard work paid off
when Deyo was selected to perform at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival in 2007. Being surrounded by about 50 comedians added some pressure for him to do well, but it mostly just increased his enjoyment of the experience. “Festivals are a lot of fun because of the comedians you get to meet and hang out with,” Deyo said. While Deyo has a ton of experience on the road and on the radio, he is about to embark on a new journey in his career: his first television appearance. Deyo will perform on CONAN on Sept. 9. He had been sending videos of his work out to late night shows for a couple of years before the TBS talk show chose him. “I started by sending a nine-minute video, and from that, he picked the jokes he thought would work well on the show,” Deyo said. I recorded just those jokes again in Philadelphia. He liked the set, and then it was just a matter of finding a date.” Deyo will also be appearing at the Laughing Devil Comedy Club on Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.tonydeyo.com.
