Re: Please request status of our park renovation here

As we can all see the Von King Park Cultural Center has not completed.  In fact, has not even changed.
Please fill out this form and ask for status: https://www.nycgovparks.org/planning-and-building/capital-project-tracker/contact/5177
Remember that other areas get services because the people in that area write a lot.  We pay the same taxes and therefore must be aware of what is going on and stay vigilant.
Anyone that would like to collaborate on the unofficial nyc council videos project write to ralph@tidalforce.org
See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3Bcjn_bsug for a video about the capital budget and parks.
It is truly amazing to listen to.
See also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIMHLqwO3YI&feature=youtu.be for an example of what can be done with the videos.  You can add and edit them.  Contact ralph@tidalforce.org if you have any questions.

The initiative and optional (or facultative) referendum were introduced in 1911, by a constitutional amendment called Proposition 7.[1] California Senate Bill 202, passed in 2011, mandated that initiatives and optional referenda can appear only on the November general election ballot.[2]

We have no process like this in New York State.
Think about this.  Let's say you do not want your tax dollars to pay politicians while they are running for another office.
Think about DeBlasio and his current "run" for president.  All the while, you are paying him to be …

School construction bond on March ballot will be Prop. 13

Read this and rememberthat here in New York state we have no direct initiative process which means you as a people cannot put propositions on the ballot only western states have this.  Why? You have to ask yourself?
"Coupal said the Howard Jarvis association will oppose the bond for several reasons. One is that, with a budget surplus, the state should be funding facilities on a pay-as-you-go-basis, instead of accumulating more debt. As for number 13, Coupal doesn't know whether it will work for or against the bond. Though it will be clearly labeled as a school construction bond, with arguments pro and con, it's possible that some tax opponents may automatically vote for it, he said.
