Civic president boycotts meet held by Avella

State Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) held a town hall meeting last Thursday where city representatives were asked questions by northeast Queens residents and civic associations, although one neighborhood group that was not invited called for a boycott of the event.

The hall was held at PS 193, at 152-20 11th Ave., and many of the residents put Hilary Gietz from the city Department of Transportation on the hot seat over requests for stop signs and speed bumps at various locations throughout Whitestone, College Point and Flushing — but most notably several residents asked for stop signs along 3rd Avenue near the newly reconstructed playground at Francis Lewis Park.

“Something has got to be done,” said Alfredo Centola, of the Malba Gardens Civic Association.

But Gietz replied that the bumps were once approved but never slated for installation due to community backlash.

Centola co-hosted the meeting along with Kim Cody from the Greater Whitestone Taxpayers Civic Association and Debbie Markell, of the Waterside Estates Cresthaven Home Owners Association.

But no one from another area civic, the Welcome to Whitestone Civic Association, was invited to the event, which prompted a letter from its President Devon O’Connor.

O’Connor sent the open letter out to members of the community, indicating he was “shocked” to learn his group was not on the invite list. He called the group’s exclusion a “silly political jab” before calling on his membership to skip the meeting.

“Now, we all need to band together as a united community to tell Sen. Avella he was not elected to persecute his community,” O’Connor said in the letter. “Let’s send a clear message to Sen. Avella: It’s time to put an end to this bullying!”

When asked at the town hall why O’Connor’s group was not invited, Avella declined to answer.

A day later, his office sent a statement about the meeting and the groups in the area, offering another slight to the civic.

“Sen. Avella held a productive town hall discussion last night and was thrilled that respected local community groups co-hosted the event,” spokesman Xavier San Miguel said. “Groups like the Greater Whitestone Taxpayers Association, the Malba Gardens Civic Association or the Waterside Estates Cresthaven Home Owners Association contribute to our democracy in a meaningful way and continue to provide real results for Queens County.”

Avella and the panel of representatives from numerous city agencies fielded questions for two hours from the crowd of about 50 people.

John Zullo, of De Phillips Athletic Club, said the city Parks Department has locked the bathrooms at College Point Fields hours before the Little League games actually end. Parks pledged to make sure the bathrooms are locked later.

Antonio Melone said the DOT repaved its roads in a manner that caused flooding and that, after waiting for more than five years for the city to replace his curbs, he had to do it himself.

Avella called the wait “a disgrace,” and revealed that the city has a 23-year waiting list for residents to get their curbs replaced.

Frank from Whitestone says:
This successful boycott of this meeting seems to have benefited the Senator most of all. As we know, he is not one to engage in conversation with the voters. Never the less, very nice work WTW and all the other groups that refused to attend. You were able to send a very clear message on our behalf.

Pat from Bellerose says:
What was that message? That divisiveness is good? Seems like WTW was being as petty as they claim the senator was being. The flyer did read open to the community, not just the groups sponsoring it.

Gary from Beechhurst says:
Tony held a street meeting about variences for a restaurant, He asked Devon to hand out flyers, and to bring as many people as possible. Devon (who is not affiliated with any party, but is a registered as a Independent) attended the meeting , and decided he did not agree with Tony's position. Since then Tony has been acting like a child, and has done everything he can to give Devon and his group a hard time. Tony, grow up, this pettiness is why the US Congress has become a non-entity. Devon has decided he will listen to both sides of a debate, and support the position he feels will be best for the community, and not along party lines. Whats really exciting, is that Devon is only 21 years old,and his been working for years to improve the lives of the people in Whitestone. We would have a better world if we had more people Devon's age "getting involved." l

Carmine, you should not speak of things you have no knowledge about.
A little history:
My wife and I made the first contribution to Tony's first campaign.
Over the years K aren has handed out more flyers for Tony than anyone else.
After Devon disagreed with Tony with reference to the restaurant, Tony called Karen and I, asking us to meet with him at his office. At this meeting which include 2 people from his staff, he threatened us that he would cause problems for Devon, because Devon had disagreed with him at this meeting. We told Tony that what ever he would do, he would end up looking like a pouting "child."
Tony should know not to threaten the grandparents with any kind of harm to our their 19 year old grandson.
Carmine, what do you think now that you know the facts?
I am not saying Tony is not a good person, but it would appear that when Tony's ego gets bruised, he does tend to regress to acting like a pouting "child."
Carmine, UNDERSTAND THAT!
May 28, 2012, 12:09 am
Carmine says:
I heard that story and tony was wrong Devon should have shown he was better than that and not stoop to the same level. Devon has done a lot of good, as have al and Tony. These people have the best interest of the community , especiallyAl and Devine as they are not looking to get reflected . Wouldn't it be nice if all this hostility be put to rest?
May 28, 2012, 12:37 am
Barbara says:
Mr. Centola, or Carmine if you wish. You seem to be blinded by the fact that the Senator uses people like you for is own self interest, not the communities.
Your mention of hostility is laughable because you are the only one with it.

Furthermore the "level" Mr. O'Connor is at is his own, one of Whitestones best.

You on the other hand have proven to be quite an embarrassment to this town.
May 28, 2012, 7:08 am
Carmine says:
Wow Barbara you mention people by last name assuming they are writing under pseudonyms etc. Yet you have no clue who I am . A little slanderous on your part no?

Why not put your last name out there as well so Mr. Centola can respond to you if he so chooses. As for hostility, reread all of the above posts as well as previous ones and do tell who it was that began the hostility and the a** comments.

You should be ashamed of yourself.
May 28, 2012, 10:42 am

You are Mr. Alfredo Centola and we are ashamed of you. How dare you.

Adam. The whole neighborhood knows about Avellas discussion with devons grandparents. Devon should have shown up as he was invited by one of the co hosts, and shown Avella that a twenty something kid was more mature than a seasoned politician. Why would you think I couldn't? Avella has done good for the community and let's his ego get in the way, as do many of our elected officials, especially current ones. Devon is a good kid and Al is a good man these guys do this because they care not for position or profit. THATS THE BOTTOM LINE.

Hey Al, Maybe your a "Godsend" to,(or is it too) we are just having problems finding any record of that.

Oh, by the way, ALL the other Whitestone "official groups" were proudly marching in the parade yesterday

Did WTW march or just the Baloon van again this year?

What's with you? Devon is a true neighborhood leader who has done so much for the town of Whitestone, selflessly I might add. Thank you WTW for showing up and making this town great again!
May 29, 2012, 4:30 pm
Carmine says:
People have asked me why Malba Gardens civic did not march in the parade, I simply said, Mr. Centola called for all community groups not to have banners for shameless self promoting in this years Whitestone Memorial Day Parade and all the official groups did. His civics boycott and personal absence is a true testament to his convictions.

After reading his previous comments, I think Alfredo is trying to more on and put an end to all his hostility and insecurities

Alfredo, you are truly outstanding and It takes a good man to be that way. You, my friend are The Godsend and the true neighborhood leader.
May 30, 2012, 4:04 am
Carmine says:
Sorry, I wanted to say move on, not more on.
May 30, 2012, 4:09 am
Anthony says:
I simply said, "Mr. Centola called for all community groups not to have banners for shameless self promoting in this years Whitestone Memorial Day Parade and all the official groups did."

Yes he did call for the boycott of advertisements and self promoting, especially from the politians. He also called on the community to stop by the VFW and personally donate directly to them. Carmine He was at the parade. I was there and we spoke. He stayed for about a half hour. Guess you guys missed each other.
May 30, 2012, 9:37 am
Adam says:
Alfredo, No one cares that you boycotted the Whitestone parade, you dumb a**. Politicians never carry banners only the kids in sport leagues. You always claim to care about children but you work to deny our kids the pride of marching and holding their team banners. Not only are you a joke but you are also the punch line.
May 30, 2012, 2:15 pm
Anthony says:
Hey Adam (as if there really is an Adam you people accuse al of using alias' yet you do it every time) you angry about something? Do you even know what al called for? Who's the dumb a**?
May 30, 2012, 4:19 pm
Adam says:
Alfredo, Anthony, whatever, isn't that a great example of the pot calling the kettle black.
May 30, 2012, 4:57 pm

Adam Lisa Barbara Angelo or whatever name you choose now FOR THE POLITICIANS! And the groups trying to take credit for organizing the parade . He also asked for the community to stop by the VFW and donate directly to THEM! Not these " groups" that come around asking for donations for police fire and veterans who only give a percentage to the actual charity. TO THE VETERANS DIRECTLY! !!!! Read his post and then you tell me.
May 30, 2012, 5:14 pm
Adam says:
Alfredo, I have read all your post and you are out on your mind. I call for the people of Whitestone to understand that.

Adam, Angelo, Lisa, Barbara, Maureen and all of your other bogus names. I have read these and other comments with great amusement and concern. It is obvious what your objective ia and while it might work on the few, rest assured the many see right thru you. Time will come when your actions will have to be answered for.

May 31, 2012, 8:18 pm
Frank says:
Anthony, I haven't read anything of any group taking credit for organizing the parade, it seems to have always been the veterans parade.

Maybe you are willing to discuss this boycott on advertisement banners for furture parades, that I do not understand. Thank you

This "kid", as you people that appose him call him, is the reason you all quake in your boots. Anthony?, tell us again what Alfredo has done for Whitestone?, you can go back decades if necessary.

It's simple really, welcome to Whitestone, is what is, is.

Gina, very nicely said.
June 3, 2012, 4:10 pm
Anthony says:
Devons voice was heard and he has been seen.

By calling for a boycott instead of showing up in force he did exactly what Avella wanted him to do. All the boycott did was create more divisiveness. The town hall should not have been about Avella or Devon, it should have been about the community. Ok, so he boycotted the town hall what next? He should have accepted the invitation sent to him and showed up with all his membership. They should have participated and this would have showed Avella up. Not stooping to his level. I do not oppose nor appose devon, neither does al. There are people on this site that use names like al, Carmine, Adam, Paul, angelo and nag, to name a few. I know for a fact that someone has posted under my name and if it wasn't intentional, why did they not correct the person who commented to them when the question related to a comment I posted? I know for certain that al has not posted on this site for months. He has said that until the publisher can verify by legitimate email, who the commentators are, he will not participate. Dialogue is good, these attacks are not. People, read the posts, it's obvious that these people are not who they are claiming to be. This paper has a responsibility figure out a way to have commentators open an account of sorts. Then we will see who is really making the comments. Good day.
June 4, 2012, 4:05 pm
Frank says:
How is it obvious to you that these people are not who they are claiming to be? How do you come to that conclusion? Who are they claiming to be? Mother always said, "It is very easy to find the liar in the room".
June 5, 2012, 2:42 pm
Anthony says:
Your mother was a very smart lady. All of these negative comments sound the same with a couple of key catch phrases and or words. As I said someone even posted as Anthony, and when you asked me a question with regards to a question you asked on another post, the person did not clarify it was a different Anthony. I also notice the Carmine is not always the same person yet they respond to the same posts. Almost every comment made is responded to against al, even when I interjected my comments.
June 5, 2012, 5:04 pm
Frank says:
Yes she was very smart, thank you. Mother said, the liar will always be the first people responding to that comment.
June 5, 2012, 5:37 pm
Anthony says:
And here is another one folks.
June 5, 2012, 7:20 pm
Frank says:
Anthony, I do not understand, what you mean when you say, " these people are not who they are claiming to be", and "people on this site that use names like al, Carmine, Adam, Paul, Angelo and nag, to name a few.".How would you know? And why would you care? I call myself Frank and you call yourself Anthony, the others may or may not use their real names. So what?

The only difference between you and the others is you and your friends say people are claiming to be you. Why would they if they do not know who you are in the first place. When something does not make sense, it's not true. Something's not right with you, your not being honest.
June 5, 2012, 8:47 pm
Anthony says:
That is a good question , I'm sure you saw the comment yourself. You asked a question that you asked me on another story. I've noticed how the different carmines and other names all have similar nuances in their commentary. I know al is not posting on this site. I am not saying you are one of them for you do not appear to be. I do take offense to being called a liar, but oh well we move on. You sound like a smart individual from what I've read of your posts, see for yourself. See how many carmines, angelos, lisas, barbaras, alfredos, ate commenting. See how many times someone comments and another commentator refers to al. Something is wrong here and I see it as does the majority of the community. Good evening.
June 5, 2012, 9:52 pm
Frank says:
Anthony, there are several people posting on this story that seemingly know a side of your friend Al that he does not share with you. He is not on this site himself and uses people like you to speak for him.

Just this story's comments as an example,
you say he is not Alfredo, you are not Anthony all the time, what is going on? You dissect the comments of others by pointing out similar nuances, trying to prove what and why?

The simple fact is these people do not like him, this is something you have to understand. It may be community or civic related, he may be a puppet of the Senators and people do not approve but the negative tone is very clear.

What bothers me is you being used by a man that does not have the guts to speak for himself as himself.
June 6, 2012, 9:26 am
Anthony says:
Puppet of the Senator or anyone else for that matter is highly doubtful. As for disliking him it is a small group if not the same one or two people attempting to smear him and his reputation. I am not speaking for him, just a mere observer who has been helped by this man and appreciates his honesty. As for this storys comments, did he make any? I am confident he did not. I know him well enough to know he would not write anything under other names. As for being Anthony all the time, rest assured I have and will continue to be. After reading all the posts, I am confident he did not make any comments, let alone negative ones, nor have a negative tone. There can be no tone if there were no comments. Good day.

June 6, 2012, 4:43 pm

Christina Wilkinson He's right. His call for a boycott is very petty.

.Alfredo Centola As one of the groups co hosting this event I would like to extend an invite to Devon as well as all of the members of his group. Let us put aside our differences and use this event as an opportunity to mend fences. Many different agencies w...ill be on hand, let's ALL take advantage and come with questions for them. Let's mend theses fences and begin to work as an entire community, for the sake of our community. Are you willing?

Frank says:
You must be the Cancerous person in the community Anthony had spoken of. Why is the above posting worth repeating? Are you looking for recognition from the community and if so for what? What is it that is causing such anger in your life? I have found that when you post a comment in an anonymous form you always follow with a comment using your real name.Why? I choose not to embarrass you, that is not why I am here but apparently all the others know it is you. Maybe one day you and I can discuss what troubles you. Thank you for finally appearing here today. Good luck to you and be well.

Worth repeating says:
It is worth repeating because HE WAS INVITED!

What is the nonsense you are saying? Far reaching to say the least.

Frank says:
Again, maybe one day soon, you and I can discuss the issues that trouble you. Thank you again for finally appearing. You are off to a good start. Good luck to you and be well. Please know I can help you.

Frank says:
Alright, if this is the only topic you wish to discuss, who was invited and what was he invited to?

Carmine says:


I am tired of this nonsense. Why the hell are you saying it is Alfredo??? He is not now and never have been a puppet to anyone. All he does is help people and he is a very honest man. It is obvious what you are doing and you will have to answer for your actions very soon. You can't embarrass him. What is your real name???. Good day.

Frank says:
My name is Frank. It seems you find more comfort in using the name Carmine, that is fine for now. Please know I am not judging you, I am simply asking questions. If you choose not to answer the questions that is fine.

Tell me about this invitation and why it troubles you so.
June 10, 2012, 6:24 pm
Carmine says:
" I was concerned that your psychosis and fanatic behavior would accelerate to the point of you believing you are real people, apparently it has."

NOT JUDGING!!!!!
June 10, 2012, 6:54 pm
Frank says:
I will always be honest with you and express my concerns when necessary. Yes, I did post that comment, only after you started to use the names Devon and Tony. Please be honest with me. Again, if you find more comfort using the name Carmine, that is fine.

Let us continue. Again, this invitation you speak of, why does it trouble you so?

Frank

Where did anyone say the invitation troubles nyone? It appears the only person it troubled was Hallorans puppet and shell civic leader.

Check out what worth repeating posted you can find it on queens politics.com and if you still haven't figured out who invited whom and what's really going on. I suggest you go crawl back under the rock or imagination you came from. You Pompous ignorant phony !

Amazing how you keep trying to steer a negative light on people. Your not that smart!
June 10, 2012, 8:04 pm
Frank says:

Alright, Paul, if you wish. Please know, I am trying to find the source of all your anger and hostility and believe me you possess a great deal. The negative light you speak of, only illuminates form you, I am only trying to understand why. Let us continue.

Within my readings, I have found many comments on what you call a phony civic and shell civic leader. Endless negative references to Council Member Daniel J. Halloran and the Whitestone civic President, Devon O'Connor. Your last comment refers to these two men again. Please explain.

Paul says:
Al is also an idiot for even trying.

You, well that is another story altogether isnt it!
June 11, 2012, 6:58 am
Frank says:
Paul, You are obviously the personality that provides the humor and sarcasm. That is fine for now.

Hopefully you can refrain from accusations or provide reference to something you have read other than something you have written. You were kind enough to bring this topic to my attention, please continue.

Carmine says:

So Paul is a nut now, a little slanderous on your part. You don't know me so what the hell do you think you are doing, you phony idiot.
June 11, 2012, 1:27 pm
Frank says:

Carmine, slander is a malicious, false, and defamatory statement. No, my comments are not slanderous. I do find it interesting that Paul now speaks for you and you now speak for Paul.

I believe all of you originate from one source.

However, I have yet to determine this is a disorder such as dissociative identity, due to the fact that the personalities all have underlying anger issues. Thank you for asking.

Please, let us continue.
June 11, 2012, 2:19 pm
Carmine says:
No one speaks for me!!! How many Camine and Alfredo commentators are pretending to be us, why don't you count them??? You people have nothing else to do but try to tarnish our reputations.

We have done so much for Whitestone, that is why Tony Avella had Al co-host the town hall and not Devon.

So determine that with your underlying issues, you ignorant phony idiot. Good Riddance.

It seems we lost Anthony and Carmine. Please allow Paul to continue our conversation. Thank you.

Paul says:


READ THIS!!! "Centola co-hosted the meeting, but no one from another area civic, the Welcome to Whitestone Civic Association, was invited to the event". The community knows the truth!!! Alfredo Centola, invited him. HE WAS INVITED!, HE WAS INVITED!, HE WAS INVITED!

Paul says:
Rosario, Tony and Alfredo are the only people that care for our neighborhood and prove it everyday. So just go crawl back under the rock you came from. Phony!!!
June 12, 2012, 1:15 pm
Frank says:
What we have witnessed here is the many faces of a man that doesn't believe in his own word enough to put his own name on it.

Are we dealing with medical or mental issues? I can not say but this type of person uses blooging formats as comfort to hide his own inadequacies by defaming creditable people that have earned the respect of their neighbors by performing selfless community services.

The two, now sadly linked together forever as attacker and victim on the internet.

I am a firm believer of free speech however I do believe that speech should be based on truth, without the intent to mislead, misrepresent or outright lie. A tall order I know and a discussion for another day.

Thank you all for your time. Please be well and truthful!

Paul says:
Yes Frank on truth so do tell, what is the truth? As you percieve it?
June 13, 2012, 10:52 pm
Paul says:
His own? Maybe her own? Maybe someone else who has shown to be inept has summoned others to do his or maybe her dirty work? What do you think of this? Could it be? No one is accusing anyone her, well except for you.

So frank, are you capable of this truth you write about?

Are our local representatives capable of it?

What is your truth frank? Who are you really, and who do you believe? What do you believe? Or does someone need to write about their diagnosis of you?

Interested in the truth.
