Union workers are being used as pawns for multi-billion dollar company (iStar), who has the potential to destroy the Long Beach Middle class.

Such a crazy time we live in when it comes to politics and money…….

READ NEWSDAY:  Long Beach ZBA hears arguments on proposed Superblock’s permit

“Attorneys for developers said the project is still moving forward and announced plans to seek new tax breaks to enable the start of construction.”

Thank you iStar for pushing through on destroying this community as much as you can. But don’t you have enough money to pay for this? I think you do [link].

“People know there’s been a change in [IDA] administration at the county level and the developers are optimistic to come to a deal to come to the IDA to proceed very quickly,” said Scott Mollen, an attorney for the development.

It sounds like a deal is already in place. Can we investigate this like how we investigated the Mangano mess? 

“Developers said they believed they were in compliance with the conditions of the city. A foundation permit was filed and a concrete slab was poured on the site, surrounded by a chain link fence off the boardwalk.”

I cannot believe they are using that tiny hole as a way of saying they already started work. Did that concrete come out of a paper bag? This is disgraceful. 

Ugh, I really don’t want to do this blog anymore, but there are times like these when I feel like have no choice. But I really don’t want to blog anymore. I love not paying attention. I have not been going to any of these meetings. I’ve been living in the dark and it’s been great, but then I go on facebook, I see what my friends post, I read Newsday and I go nuts. I don’t want to do this blog anymore. I really don’t.
