Statement From Liz Glass

August 8, 2020

***Written by Liz Glass***

Hi, I’m Liz Glass a candidate for NYS Senate in Manhattan’s District 27.

I have been busy this last week, tying up loose ends with the Board of Elections. 

Unfortunately, due to a limited number of volunteers and a short window of time, the campaign received many, many signatures, but not enough.

But…never say die. After deep contemplation and with absolute resolve I am moving forward as a write-in candidate to ensure our voices are heard, and I ask for your support in doing so. 

Certainly our voices in New York City need to heard now more than ever. On August 5, 2020 Mayor Bill DiBlasio set up military-style COVID-19 checkpoints at major bridge and tunnel crossings. 

Providing no scientific justification for the decision, DiBlasio said (quote) that travelers coming in from the 35 states with high COVID 19 infection rates would be given information about the quarantine with failure to comply resulting in fines (up to) 10,000 dollars.

The COVID-19 virus is serious, and my heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones. With that said, it is imperative we honor their memory by making decisions going forward based on facts, and not fear. 

The high COVID-19 infection rates that you hear about in the mainstream media are due to higher rates of testing, NOT fatalities. Also, according to the CDC, COVID-19 has a survival rate of 99.96%. 

In April governor of Rhode Island also had COVID-19 checkpoints, which Gov. Cuomo called “unconstitutional” and the ACLU is suing Rhode Island because of it. 

I contacted the ACLU in New York whose director Donna Lieberman responded: “It’s concerning that the Mayor’s announcement comes with few details on what will happen at checkpoints and how people’s sensitive information will be protected.”

Here are my questions: 

1. Can a “State of Emergency” allow the government to suspend our constitutional rights? (The answer: No!)

2. According to the NY Times, roughly one-third of the city’s 240,000 small businesses may never reopen. So far, those businesses have shed 520,000 jobs. We must reopen the economy. Why is DiBlasio sabotaging people’s ability to visit New York? 

3. NYC Sheriff Joseph Fucito is overseeing the checkpoints. Sheriff in the United States swear an oath to uphold the constitution. According to Cuomo, these checkpoints are unconstitutional. Sheriff Fucito’s number is 212 487 9734, and the National Sheriffs’ Association is 800.424.7827, if you care to share your opinion about their colleague.

There will also be quarantine checkpoints for inter-state travelers at Penn Station and Port Authority, which will be overseen by the test and tracing program’s executive director Dr. Ted Long. 

Contact tracing involves the government following you via an app on your phone. The app determines if you have come into contact with an individual – family, friend, or stranger – who tests positive for COVID-19. The app shares your location and medical information with the government, and NYS’s 17,000 contact tracers who are paid $50,000 per year will require you to quarantine for 14 days. According to the Epoch Times “The city’s Test and Trace program is providing free meals, hotel rooms, and other services to people who are undergoing the mandatory quarantine. Workers have made more than 86,000 phone calls, and sent more than 20,000 texts, and “if we can’t get through to you on the phone, we’ve deployed teams that are now knocking on your door to check in with you and make sure you are safe,” according to Dr. Long. 

New York had a 6 to 8 billion dollar deficit before COVID-19, and according to the Washington Examiner, New York faces a budget deficit of $30 billion over the next two years. Businesses are going under; so tax revenue is disappearing. 

Question: we are paying $850,000,000 for the salaries of these contact tracers, as well as hotel expenses for out-of-state residents. for a virus with a .04% death rate? Where is the money coming from for this program, and what is the true purpose of the program? 

On June 16, I posted a video on social media “Will NY Schools Reopen?” Cuomo indicated that if schools can reopen, contact tracing would be mandatory. In that video I asked questions, and will repeat those questions here:

What if the contact tracer determines that you need to quarantine for 14 days, but you have family or children and only one bathroom. What happens to the children? 

It appears that contact tracing would necessitate family separations, including children. I will post in the comment section contact information and social media accounts for Governor Cuomo, Mayor DiBlasio, and Dr. Long.  Please ask these public servants for clarification. 

Thank you for tuning in. I’m Liz Glass, a candidate for NYS Senate in Manhattan’s District 27. Because we are stronger together, and all of us – particularly our children – need to be protected, and are essential.

NYCLU’s Donna Lieberman: “It’s concerning that the Mayor’s announcement comes with few details on what will happen at checkpoints and how people’s sensitive information will be protected. Calling a law enforcement action a public health measure does not make it one. We know that law enforcement should not have any role in contact tracing – it is ineffective and raises serious questions on inequitable enforcement and what information will be mandated.”

Brad Hoylman’s Mother-in-law’s Work is Funded by Bill Gates

June 19, 2020 — New York State Senator Brad Hoylman is poised to force every New Yorker to inject the COVID-19 vaccine that Bill Gates is promoting, funding, and likely to profit from. Hoylman’s mother-in-law, Dr. Ellen V. Sigal, is on the board of Parker Institute which has partnered with Inovio, a company receiving funding from Gates for INOVIO’s DNA COVID-19 vaccine. Sigal also receives funding from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through the Cancer Moonshot program of which Sigal is a Vice President. Gates donates to many other programs that Dr. Sigal is involved with or is the chair of, including FDA’s Reagan-Udall Foundation, Duke University, C-Path, and Milken Institute of Public Health.

As I have previously reported, Dr. Sigal is a friend and colleague of Dr. Doug Lowy who co-invented Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil. Sigal’s son-in-law Senator Brad Hoylman is currently sponsoring a bill in Albany that would force every child in New York to inject Gardasil to attend public school. Hoylman also supports a separate bill that would allow 9-year-olds to be injected with Gardasil in school without parental knowledge or consent.

Bill Gates is a big supporter of the HPV vaccine.

The Gates Foundation supports HPV vaccine research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) working with Dr. Lowy to study the effectiveness of the vaccine via the Cancer Moonshot program which, again, Brad Hoylman’s mother-in-law Ellen Sigal sits on the board as Vice President.

None of this funding nexus is private information. It is all readily available at the websites of each of these institutions. Brad Hoylman is a corporatist in progressive clothing. He needs to be removed from Albany as his conflicts of interest clearly make it impossible for him to represent the best interests of the people of New York.

Brad Hoylman Has a Doorman

June 14, 2020 — Democratic New York State Senator Brad Hoylman recently tweeted about how upset he is that realtors discriminate on Long Island. But Census Tract 63 in Manhattan, where he lives, has 6330 residents, 66 of whom are black or about 1%. You can look that up here:

https://geomap.ffiec.gov/FFIECGeocMap/GeocodeMap1.aspx

I wonder how many black people live in Hoylman’s exclusive Fifth Avenue Co-op building, which has a doorman.

While Hoylman lives the life of the rich and shameless on Fifth Ave., he sells out the folks in NYCHA public housing. Fight For NYCHA (FFN) reminded everyone recently that Brad Hoylman backed up Mayor De Blasio’s corrupt, secretive NYCHA Working Group involved in the demolition of two apartment buildings in the Fulton Houses which also had a privatization scheme attached to it. When FFN took one picture of those attending the NYCHA Working Group (capturing Hoylman among others) they were asked to leave and almost had their phones confiscated.

Why? What’s the big secret?

FFN tweeted:

When @BilldeBlasio wanted to #sellout #FultonHouses to #RAD Landlords in a scheme that involved demolition of two public housing apartments, @bradhoylman was there to back-up @NYCMayor‘s corrupt @NYCHA Working Group. #earlyvotingstartstoday

FFN had included pictures – and zoomed in on key sections – as evidence of Hoylman being complicit in the Mayor’s scheme to privatize NYCHA public housing units:

Community Control of Land Use New York (CCLUNY) tweeted the following:

Who is at @NYCMayor Secret Nycha Working Group that is ready to sell public housing to 70/30 MIH luxury developers? @FightForNYCHA was asked to leave because we took ONE PHOTO. This secret meeting violates the Open Meetings Law…1/3 @monicamoralestv @joeanuta @hdiprinzio @WBAI

CCLUNY further tweeted that the chair of Manhattan Board 4, Joe R., attempted to take their phones away from them presumably to delete the photo they had taken showing Hoylman and others in attendance, but that didn’t happen.

SMILE BRAD!

Liz Glass Position on Protests in NYC

Statement from Elizabeth Glass

June 9, 2010 — As a Democratic candidate for NYS Senate in Manhattan’s District 27 (Chelsea, Greenwich Village, East Village, Stuyvesant Town, Peter Cooper Village, Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, Columbus Circile, Midtown East, UWS), I know the residents of my district:

  • want peace in their neighborhoods and streets
  • want the police to treat them with dignity & respect
  • want the right to peacefully protest
  • want to begin the process of healing our beloved city

I believe in the constitutional right to peacefully protest, and stand with Americans outraged by the murder of George Floyd. While the overwhelming majority of protests have been peaceful, sadly, not all. Much of the violence has come from out of towners.

For example, on June 5, 2020, ABC News reported an incident wherein New Yorkers at a Brooklyn protest voiced concerns to NYPD officers about two questionable characters. The police approached these men, and found their vehicle contained knives, weapons, gas masks, gasoline, and point-to-point radios.

NYC at it’s best: protesters and the police working together to keep the city safe from dangerous outsiders. The key right now for New York City to heal involves meaningful police reform that will protect the civil and human rights of people of color. We must also eliminate excessive NYPD spending. Defunding the NYPD is not dismantling it. As the June 5th account from ABC News shows it is not impossible for protesters and the NYPD to find common ground in keeping NYC safe and prosperous.

Thank you for your consideration.
