Notwithstanding Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s promise to relocate many of the Willets Point small businesses, he has now owned up to the fact it was all a charade. As a holiday present, notices have been sent to many of the businesses requiring them to vacate the area by Nov. 30, effectively making them all unemployed. This should come as no surprise since Bloomberg has made it clear he has no mayoral interest in the poor; no interest in the middle class; and no interest in small businesses. His constituency is limited to the rich and fat cat real estate moguls.
In passing, it should be noted Bloomberg has been Mayor for about nine years. Can anyone point to a half a dozen things he has accomplished in that period of time that has significantly improved the lives of the poor, the middle class and the small business person? I doubt it and in my opinion history will not judge him kindly, justifiably so.
