Several Long Beach residents did Long Beach proud this week. A concerted effort by a group of your neighbors stopped the BOE from sending a letter in support of iStar to the IDA. And today a small group of them were present at the IDA hearing outnumbered by hundreds of union supporters of granting the tax break. They stood their ground and received the great news as the IDA denied the tax request.
Long Beach residents who deserve to be condemned in connection with iStar:
Anthony iStaramo – selling out his neighbors for union support in a future election
Darlene Tangney – attempting to sneak through BOE support of the tax relief
Stu Mininsky and Perry Bodnar — prepared to go along with Tangney until stopped by residents who jumped into action and got an assist from Dr. Ryan
Skudins — They have supported iStar since the first variance hearing
