This is good. I hope he joins the SLA Committee. Too many real estate people on the community board. Even one developer on the CB is enough to wipe out several blocks with just a couple of phone calls.

All of our public officials take too much money from real estate people and the NY Nightlife Association members. All of them are pussies. They are all entirely reprehensible for wiping us out.
