Liz Glass on NY Budget Deficit

New York’s Insane Multi-Billion Dollar Budget Deficit

June 21, 2020 — Hi, I’m Elizabeth Glass, a Democratic candidate for NY Senate in Manhattan’s District 27.

Wonderful volunteers and I have been hitting the streets of the district, which includes Chelsea, Greenwich Village, East Village, Stuy Town, Peter Cooper Village, Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, Columbus Circle, Midtown East, UWS. We love hearing from New Yorkers and the issues THEY care about. 

The Democratic primary is June 23, with early voting taking place now. To find your polling site, please visit https://nyc.pollsitelocator.com/search 

Our constitutional freedoms are under threat in New York State. If you share our concerns and you have friends or family or colleagues who live in Manhattan’s district 27, please share this message with them, and ask them to share the message with their local networks, and so on. This campaign is being censored on social media, so please spread the word. 

Today I want to talk to you about New York State’s Budget Deficit:

Prior to the COVID crisis, New York had a six to eight billion dollar budget deficit. Within two months of the lockdown, that number doubled.

Also prior to the COVID crisis, my opponent sponsored 905 bills for 2020 legislative session; many of these bills were frivolous and wasteful. The problem with Democrats like my opponent is their excessive spending. I believe we as a society must help those who truly need it – disenfranchised people of color, people with disabilities, the homeless, our seniors – but there is far too much unnecessary spending in Albany. 

My opponent treats taxpayers like a sugar daddy with an Am Ex Black card. 

For example, Look at this trash can…(in Washington Square Park) $100,000 on these 68 designer garbage cans at a cost of $1500 each when the same non-designer trashcans cost $718.

To be fair, this is a minor example, but such spending is indicative of questionable budgetary policies. 

Currently, it is impossible to analyze our state’s fiscal situation simply because the numbers are not there: Our state reps do not provide budgetary information written in a clear, understandable, and transparent way. This is a red flag in our state government, and an issue I will raise in Albany when I’m elected. Taxpayers hard-earned money should not be squandered by leaders who embrace excessiveness as a badge of honor. 

Thank you for tuning in. If you value transparency in government, as well as our constitutional freedoms: please invest in this campaign, or volunteer at glassforsenate.com . The time is now. Together – we the people – can take back our government because WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER! And every one of us is essential. 

My Name is Liz Glass a democratic candidate for NY Senate in Manhattan’s district 27. Thank you.

***

June 16, 2020 — I’ve known Liz Glass for almost a year and can wholeheartedly say I have never been more enthusiastic about a political candidate in my life. Here is why you should vote for Elizabeth Glass in the 27th NY Senate District, Manhattan, Democratic primary:

Liz is honest and listens to the people

What she says is what you get. Liz does not shy away from controversial issues nor standing up to speak truth to power. She is not an ideologue which is crucial to fix the mounting problems New York is facing today.

Liz was born and raised in New York

Manhattan is where her heart truly lies. The corruption in New York City and Albany was just too much for her to bear any longer as she ultimately said, “If not me, than who?” Liz has been called by something greater than herself to be a public servant.

Liz is real

Liz is a real person; a mother and teacher. She graduated Summa Cum Laude at SUNY Buffalo with a Bachelors in Accounting. She is a real New Yorker who wants to save NYC from the dangerous path we find ourselves on right now.

Liz supports NYCHA Public Housing

Liz is 100% opposed to the privatization of NYCHA public housing while her opponent pretends to protect tenants yet secretly supports privatization schemes that hurt working class New Yorkers.

Liz cares about Children’s Health

The health of New York City children today is abysmal, and quite simply this is NOT OK!

Liz’s “NOT OK” plan – “New Outlooks Towards Our Kids” – will get to the bottom of why our children are so incredibly unhealthy. 54% of our children have a serious, chronic neurological or autoimmune disorder. When elected, Liz will set up a “NOT OK” task force to look at WHY our children have these myriad health problems. What is causing this explosion in rates or autism, dyslexia, allergies, asthma, cancer, and other disorders? Autism alone costs the US $126 billion dollars per year. Liz knows that as a society, unless we work to identify what is happening to our children and why they are so unhealthy, our state (and likely our nation) will go bankrupt!

Liz cares about disability rights

Representing the needs & dreams of New York’s citizens with disabilities is a major priority to Liz as she has raised a son on the autism spectrum who is 19 years old today. Governor Andrew Cuomo has been horrible when it comes to supporting the rights and needs of residents with disabilities. Liz Glass will not cave when it comes to challenging Cuomo and his supporters who just don’t understand what the needs & dreams of people with disabilities really are.

Liz stands with protesters

Liz stands with protesters all across this country calling for justice for George Floyd, reforming and defunding the police (not dismantling). However she believes it is time to start a dialogue to begin the process of healing our beloved city. Liz firmly supports all forums that bring multiple stakeholders together right now to hear from everyone in the community.

Liz is brave

Some of the hardships Liz has dealt with during this campaign you will never hear about. Despite these challenges, she keeps moving forward unafraid of the obstacles put in front of her and 100% willing to be a voice fighting for the people even when no one will stand with her.

Will you stand with Liz!?

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!

Hoylman Will Force COVID19 Vaccine on Every New Yorker

Democrat State Sen. Brad Hoylman

Forced Vaccination of Adults in New York

June 12, 2020 — Brad Hoylman supports forcing the COVID-19 vaccine on every New Yorker. This is well in line with Governor Andrew Cuomo who has volunteered New Yorkers to be lab rats for the coming fast-tracked COVID vaccine, which is bypassing standard safety trials. The New York Bar Association – a highly influential lawyers trade group – has recently called for the forced vaccination of every New Yorker as well.

“Whether or not someone decides to take the COVID-19 vaccine should be between that person and their doctor,” said Liz Glass, who is challenging Brad Hoylman in the upcoming Democratic primary on June 23rd.

Hoylman has never met a vaccine he doesn’t love, including Merck’s Gardasil vaccine for HPV. This vaccine is said to protect against the transmission of an STD, yet Hoylman wants every 11-year-old in New York to be forced to take it to attend school. Gardasil is linked to multiple adverse reactions including infertility problems, paralysis and death. Children are at zero risk of transmitting HPV to their peers while in school, but if this vaccine is forced on children it will make Merck a ton of money.

Brad Hoylman’s husband David Sigal has held investments in Merck’s stock (see pg 16). Sigal’s mother Ellen Sigal (Brad Hoylman’s mother in law) is a colleague of Doug Lowy who co-invented Merck’s Gardasil HPV vaccine. Sigal & Lowy have sat on multiple advisory boards together including scientific advisors to the National Cancer Institute as well as colleagues in the Cancer Moonshot Program. It is extremely questionable to see Hoylman trying to pass laws that force 11-year-olds to be injected with the HPV vaccine to attend school when his mother-in-law’s friend and colleague will get a major financial benefit from that law.

Hoylman also supports allowing students to be vaccinated and prescribed medicine in school without parental knowledge or consent. Hoylman is the sponsor of Senate bill S3899a which would allow students to be injected with Merck’s HPV vaccine, the HEP-B vaccine as well as be prescribed risky medications without any parental knowledge or consent.

And it doesn’t stop there.

Brad Hoylman also supports making flu vaccines mandatory for every child in New York State to go to school up till age 18. That would be at least 13 more vaccines in a student’s lifetime to attend public school. While there are many different scientific opinions on just how effective the flu vaccine actually is, this will certainly be very lucrative for pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them.

There are many vaccines Hoylman wants to force on people, but you get the picture.

Brad Hoylman is corporatist in progressive clothing.

NYCHA tenants in public housing call Hoylman “an enemy of the people,” as he has repeatedly represented corporate interests, such as his former employer The Partnership for New York City, and not the interests of the tenants. He pretends to support working class causes but is in the pocket of corporate America; especially the pharmaceutical companies. It’s easy to be two-faced from the comfort of Hoylman’s door-man attended building on Fifth Ave.

Vote Hoylman out of office.

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.
