Today’s news:

Halloran right standing up to dealer

TimesLedger Newspapers

I am a constituent of City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Whitestone) and I am glad to have an elected official who I can count on to take action.

Star Nissan has, over the past 10 years, violated all noise, screening, dumpster enclosure and parking requirements of the Zoning Resolution, as well as the ventilation requirements of the Administrative Code. I have also seen its workers drive cars in the opposite direction down a one-way street in order to save time.

Numerous elected officials have reached out to the dealership over the years in an effort to come to a resolution, but to no avail.

Halloran is not out of control as it would clearly love to portray him, but frustrated that after having held two recent meetings with Star Nissan it again refused to cooperate.

I wish there were more elected officials like Halloran taking a proactive role in their community rather than filing it away as just another constituent complaint.

Pietro from Whitestone says:
So he yelled and cursed, big deal. He put on a show for all you baccalas and at the end of it all nothing changed. Bravo!
