FORMER LONGTIME QUEENS ASSEMBLYMAN DENIS J. BUTLER DIES

Received Papal Knighthood in 2009; Served in NY State Assembly for Quarter Century Denis J. Butler a lifelong resident of Astoria, New York and a retired member of the New York State Legislature passed away on October 14, 2010. He is survived by his beloved wife of 49 years, Mary, three children Kathleen, Denis and Thomas, daughter-in-law Lisa and four loving grandchildren. Denis was born on July 26, 1927 the fourth son of Denis and Annie Butler and is predeceased by his parents and brothers Brian, John, Thomas and Matthew. In 2009, Assemblyman Butler was knighted into the Papal Order of Saint Gregory the Great in Brooklyn’s St. James Cathedral Basilica by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzo.

From an early age his commitment to serving the community was evident, as a 20year volunteer with the Lighthouse for the Blind and serving as president of the St. Joseph’s Home School Association, a member of the Holy Name Society, Parish Council and from 1970-2000 as Democratic District Leader. In April 1976 Denis J. Butler was first elected to the New York State Assembly, where he served the 36th Assembly District including Astoria and Long Island City for 24 years and 8 months, with victories in every Assembly election. Denis rose to the position of Assistant Speaker Pro Tempore in 1993 and as a full-time legislator, served on the Rules, Aging, Economic Development, Labor and Oversight, Analysis and Investigations Committees and on the Joint Budget Conference Committee’s Subcommittee on Higher Education, which helped to maintain and increase funding for higher education. Assemblyman Butler served as Chairman of the Assembly Subcommittee on the Special Problems of the Aging. Assemblyman Butler retired from a distinguished career in public service in December 2000. Through his advocacy and legislation, Assemblyman

Butler was an advocate for the elderly, disabled, unborn and military veterans. For nearly 25 years in the legislature he was an advocate for and proponent of funding for the Maternity and Early Childhood Foundation, to promote alternatives to abortion. In 1988, Assemblyman Butler was recipient of the Brooklyn Diocese’s Pro Vita Award, presented by Bishop Francis J. Mugavero in recognition of his efforts on behalf of the unborn and in support of life. Two years later, the late Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta traveled from Calcutta to Brooklyn’s St. James Cathedral Basilica to accept the same award. In 1992, Assemblyman Butler received the New York State Catholic Conference Public Policy Award, presented by John Cardinal O’Connor and the Bishops of New York State for his work in support of the Maternity and Early Childhood Foundation. A graduate of LaSalle Academy and Cathedral College, Assemblyman Denis Butler also attended St. Joseph’s Seminary, the State University of New York at Albany and Columbia University. Mr. Butler was a lifelong resident of St. Joseph’s Parish in Long Island City where he and his four brothers attended school.

REP. MALONEY SLAMS PROPOSED FEDERAL RULE THAT WOULD DECIMATE MORTGAGE LENDING IN NYC U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Manhattan, Queens) wrote to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) expressing her strong opposition to a proposed guidance issued by FHFA that would have an enormously destructive impact on mortgage lending in New York City. FHFA’s proposed guidance would prohibit federal agencies such as Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, among others, from investing in or guaranteeing mortgages on real property, including cooperatives and condominiums,

that requires a transfer fee, or “flip tax,” when the property is bought or sold. A copy of Maloney’s letter follows. “As many as 65-75% of all cooperatives and condominiums in New York City have some version of a transfer fee. Forcing these buildings to eliminate their transfer fees will take a terrible toll on the housing market in New York City and elsewhere in the country,” Maloney said. “It will cause steep increases in monthly costs for residents, increase the need for bor-

rowing, reduce the number of buildings that are well-maintained and, at least during the period before the transfer taxes are eliminated, render tens of thousands of apartment units virtually unsalable. “However well-intentioned, this guidance would be a nightmare for our housing market, which is only now rebounding from the recession. I strongly urge the FHFA to reject this misguided proposal as it applies to cooperatives and condominiums.”

COMMUNITY LEADERS AND CONCERNED NEIGHBORS CELEBRATE THE SHUT DOWN OF CASA ROMANA Community thanks 108th Precinct, NYPD, and celebrates victory when a local bar with history of violations gets shut down. On Friday, October 15th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan, Community Board 2 Chairman Joseph Conley, community leaders, and neighbors joined forces to celebrate the official shut down of Casa Romana Bar in Sunnyside, Queens. The bar was the site of a bloody brawl last month, when a “Teen Night” hosted by the establishment went awry resulting in the stabbings of two minors and a total of 14 arrests, including the owners. The location has had a history of violations, including disorderly premise and has been cited for serving alcohol to minors in the past. Less than a month ago, these elected officials and residents gathered together in a rally to demand that the bar be shut down and today they celebrated Casa Romana’s official closure. According to the NYPD, they were able to close the establishment for nuisance abatement based on previous arrests for disorderly premise and serving alcohol to minors. Currently, the doors of Casa Romana have signs posted which state that they have been closed by Court Order for Alcoholic Beverage Control Violations. The Queens County Supreme Court will decide the future for Casa Romana in an upcoming hearing, but for now local elected officials and residents are celebrating a major community victory.

“The closure of Casa Romana sends a powerful message to those establishments that are reckless and threaten the public’s safety,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “Less than a month a go we stood here as a community united to protect our neighborhood against a rogue business and today we celebrate its closure. Thank you to

the 108th Precinct and to the NYPD for their due diligence to protect our community.” “Our wonderful community has no tolerance for an unscrupulous profiteer who wants to exploit underage teens,” said Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan. “I am grateful to the 108th Precinct for their outstanding professionalism in closing this racket down.”

“Shutting this business down is a message to unscrupulous businesses who negatively affect the quality of life in our community,” said Community Board 2 Chairman, Joseph Conley. “We will be vigilant and we will not rest if you think you are above the law and you negatively impact our community.”

Nolan joined US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand Photo Left: On a visit of Long Island City, United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, toured NYCHA, Queensbridge Houses with Chairman John Rhea, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer and Bishop Mitchell Taylor. They had a chance to see the modernized boiler plants that are being funded through HUD money. Senator Gillibrand was also able to visit East River Development Alliance and met with members of the Credit Union.

Chancellor Joel Klein visited “Academy for Careers in Television and Film” in Long Island City with Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan and Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer. This school is located in IS 205’s building. Principal Mark Dunetz, showcased their wonderful programs. This unique CTA high school exposes students to the wonder of New York’s film and television industry. “It was so inspiring to meet these dedicated teachers and principals. The small class size and excellent equipment make this an experience worthwhile for these young students”- Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan. “It was wonderful to witness the talented youth and educators in their element at the Academy for Careers in Television and Film in Long Island City today,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “The dedication of the teachers and impressive work produced by New York City’s brightest students is an inspiration to us all.”

SUPPORT GROWS FOR HISTORIC CELTIC PARK PLAQUE

Last week Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan joined Congressman Joe Crowley in calling on the Celtic Park Co-op Board of Directors to mount a plaque at Celtic Park in Sunnyside/Woodside, Queens, to honor the Olympic champion athletes of the Irish-American Athletic Club who made the site world famous a century ago. In addition to the support of the majority of the elected officials for the neighborhood, the proposal to mount a plaque at Celtic Park has received the unanimous support of the United Forties Civic Association, the United Irish Counties Association of New York, and the NYPD Emerald Society. Many of the descendants of the athletes of the Irish-American Athletic Club, (which built the Celtic Park stadium in 1898), have also appealed to the coop board to mount a plaque in honor of their ancestors’ Olympic achievements. In a strongly worded letter delivered to the co-op board’s meeting on October 13th, Don McCallian, president of the United 40’s Civic Association stated that, “the United Forties voted unanimously to support the Winged Fist Organization’s request for placement of a plaque at Celtic Park, to honor the Olympic champions of this neighborhood.” Councilman Van Bramer said in a letter to the co-op board that the Irish-American Athletic Club “should be recognized with a plaque for the important contribution it made to the Untied States of America and New York City.” The members of the Celtic Park Co-op Board of Directors have repeatedly declined to discuss this matter, choosing to comment only through their lawyer and their in-house newsletter. In a letter to Congressmen Crowley last year, the board’s lawyer Mark Hankin expressed concern that the plaque could potentially “damage…the façade” of the building, and disturb the “symmetry of the exterior,” and that it might violate the “privacy” of the residents of Celtic Park. In their newsletter, the co-op board expressed concern that “allowing this plaque, however well-intentioned, would make it more difficult to deny any similar requests in the years to come,” and might lead to a flood of requests for other plaques at the location. A motion in support of the plaque was brought to the last annual shareholders meeting of Celtic Park co-op by Ian McGowan, a Celtic Park shareholder. Mr. McGowan is the founder of the Winged Fist Organization, which is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Irish-American Athletic Club. This proposal was not voted on by the shareholders, as the meeting failed, for the third year in a row, to reach quorum. This was in large part due to the absence at this meeting of the majority shareholder of the co-op, Daniel Benedict, who holds almost one-third of the shares of the Celtic Park co-operative. For more information about the Irish-American Athletic Club, and the efforts to mount a plaque at Celtic Park, visit www.WingedFist.org.
