Joe Moretti from Jamaica says:
This is what happens when you let Jamaica become the wild wild west and do nothing about the major garbage problem and other quality of life issues. Of course extremely poor leadership, do nothing elected officials, corrupt elected leaders who do not care about the community and allow Jamaica for years to become a ghetto and sink lower and lower every year is a BIG ISSUE.

This is what twelve years of Councilman Leroy Comrie gets you, years of people like Congressman Gregory Meeks, Senator Malcolm Smith, former Senator Shirley Huntley, Assemblymember Vivian Cook and of course a 2nd term of Councilman Rueben Wills.

You put crap leaders into office, you get a crap community.
