TIMES SQUARE GOSSIP ENDORSES ANDREW CUOMO

****
VOTE NO ON TISH JAMES FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL

Story By: James Edstrom
****

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo



We have done a lot of research. Having been a New Yorker all my life, I know the Cuomo family from many years of attending parties with them and photographing them. I like some of Cynthia Nixon's talk, but we just do not think she can do the walk. We also like Andrew Cuomo's talk and we know he can do the walk.


Andrew Cuomo's dad Mario Cuomo was a gentleman and a very smart man. The guy had class. Andrew's mom Miltilda Cuomo was truly New York's first lady. She always sent me thank you letters that she wrote herself and I had many conversations with her and Mario over the years. They are a good family. But this is not why I think we need to vote Andrew Cuomo back in office.


We have a crazy man AKA Donald Trump in the White House, a man who I have known personally for 30 years. Trump is after New York City even know it is his home town. We need protection from this maniac.  Cynthia Nixon is not a seasoned politician and this is what we need in this day and age of Donald Trump. She has ideas, some of them good, but she will just not know how to implement them nor will she know her way around the political arena in New York State or Washington DC.



 Andrew Cuomo knows his way around. Andrew Cuomo knows how to fight for New Yorker's. In this day and age, we need protection from Donald Trump and his policies. I understand the talk of this deal and that deal from the politicians up in Albany. But no matter what deals are going on, weather bad or good, Andrew Cuomo is a fighter, Andrew Cuomo when push comes to shove will not let New Yorker's down. I know this. I have known this family for years.


I considered Cynthia Nixon. I like the idea of new blood in Albany and in Washington DC. But watching Cynthia being supported by the same old political losers like Jimmy Van Bramer was not what I was looking for and many residents in my neighborhood were sickened by watching her and Van Bramer work the political circuit together. Jimmy Van Bramer only cares for media attention and watching Cynthia and him together made many of us sick. Cynthia Nixon even hosted Jimmy Van Bramers Birthday bash here in Hunters Point South. Considering we can not even get garbage cans or a red light from Jimmy Van Bramer, by Nixon surrounding herself with this man only makes the residents around here very uneasy that she will not be able to deliver.


Nothing for nothing, Andrew Cuomo is a New Yorker and for New Yorker's. Andrew Cuomo knows how to handle someone like Donald Trump and knows how to protect New York. Right now is not the time for a change. Vote today. These days our elections are more important than ever.


ZEPHYR TEACHOUT FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL


I do not know Zephyr Teachout, but I know Tish James. I know Cuomo supports Tish James, but I do not and here's why.


I contacted Tish James Office when she was Public Advocate about the abuse I was getting from landlord St Nicks Alliance. I complained about discrimination because I was white and I was gay and had AIDS. I complained about the drug operations that were being run out of my building at 19 Maujer Street in Brooklyn and she did nothing. I finally had to go  to the Brooklyn DA and they ended up busting a Heroin Cartell run by St Nicks Alliance Property Manager Haydee Cordero. It was a huge operation running drugs all over Brooklyn, but Tish James had the heads up on this first and did nothing. To this day, Tish James has done nothing about the city awarding contracts to convicted felons like Joseph Robles President Of St Nicks Alliance. Tish James not only did nothing about my complaints about St Nicks Alliance and the drug operations, I wonder how many people died until the Brooklyn DA busted them all. Meanwhile St Nicks Alliance continues to get contract after contract, even know they are run by a convicted felon, even know their property manager was busted for running a drug ring. Tish James is not good for New York, Tish James only cares for her landlord friends in Brooklyn. Tish James will not fight for New Yorkers.


I have done my research on Zephyr Teachout. The New York Times endorses her, but that is not the reason I choose her. Zephyr Rain Teachout is an attorney, author, and Associate Professor of Law at Fordham. She is one smart cookie. She will fight for securing tenants’ rights and voting rights and pursuing criminal justice reform. She will also fight Donald Trump who charities and companies need to be taken to task for the way they operate. Ms. Teachout is not surrounded by political cronies and in this day and age, we need someone like her. No one is better suited for this job than Zephyr Teachout. 


Tish James will be the same old thing. We need old blood in the Governors office like Andrew Cuomo to fight Donald Trump, and new blood in the Attorney General's office to fight corruption. This will be a great balance in New York.

Jean Shafiroff And Narciso Rodriguez


As a volunteer fundraiser, leader, and spokesperson for several charitable causes, philanthropist Jean Shafiroff shares the sentiment that Narciso Rodriguez is truly deserving of the 2018 Artistry of Fashion award. There is a correlation between Shafiroffs committment to female empowerment and Rodriguez’s empowering fashion designs. He designs clothing for women to make them feel strong and beautiful whether it be a power lunch, a boardroom meeting or to stand equally alongside a man in a suit. As a powerful women, philanthropist, volunteer fundraiser and chairwoman for notable causes, Jean found his designs and the message they uphold noble. Jean, herself, is a connoisseur of timeless style and elegant gala fashion supporting up-and-coming as well as established fashion designers.

Angela Dotson


The 2018 Couture Council Award Ceremony began with cocktails on the terrace of the David H. Koch Theater. Following the lively cocktail hour, guests entered the theater’s promenade for a three-course lunch, catered by Olivier Cheng. The terrace was decorated and designed with beautiful floral arrangements by Bronson van Wyck of Van Wyck & Van Wyck event production company.
