Ex NY Assemblyman: GOP is 'Invading' NYC to Push Radical Agenda

At Thursday night's town hall forum on the Republican National Convention, a clear message was conveyed from the panelists: the GOP is trying to push a radical agenda in our backyard ethat has and will continue to hurt New Yorkers.

Longtime New York Assemblyman Ed Sullivan spoke at the event in place of City Councilman Bill Perkins -- amazingly four of the best known panelists: Janeane Garofalo, Arianna Huffington, Sam Waterston and Perkins were all no-shows -- and gave a concise rundown of what he sees as how the Bush agenda is adversely affecting New Yorkers. According to Sullivan, the Bush administration has:

1. cut section 8 housing
2. imposed term limits on public housing
3. spent tens of billions on Iraq that could be spent on urban development
4. limited funding for the No Child Left Behind Act
5. prevented the Pell Grant for college students from keeping pace with inflation
6. given tax cuts to the wealthy that could have gone to social services
7. cut lead abatement programs
8. passed and continues to support the Patriot Act which has a particularly adverse affect on immigrant communities
9. destroyed the dignity of organized labor in part by outsourcing jobs overseas.

Sullivan said in conclusion, "We are being invaded by a people who have an agenda that attacks us."

Sulllivan announced that Perkins planned to take GOP delegates on tours of the other side of New York that they won't likely see during the convention: the homeless intake center, the public school classroom where students speak eight different foreign languages, the emergency room in a city hospital, etc.

We'll have more on the forum later...

Four no shows??? What a joke. People must have been ticked off. Why bother to advertise those folks if they're not even going to bother to come?

Is this the forum that was taking place at the CUNY Graduate Center?
