WITH SUCH SEVERE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES,
WHO WANTS THESE RAMPS?


The following individuals are among those responsible for either advocating approval of, and/or actually voting to approve, the additional Van Wyck ramps and associated development, despite the severe unmitigable adverse traffic consequences:

Michael Bloomberg

Mayor of the City of New York.

Claire Shulman

Former Queens Borough President and founder of "Flushing Willets Point Corona Local Development Corporation," which has been fined a record $59,080.00 by the Office of the New York City Clerk for failing to disclose lobbying activities in connection with advocating project approvals; presently under investigation by the New York State Attorney General; the U.S. Attorney; and the Internal Revenue Service.

Chuck Apelian and Gene Kelty

First Vice-Chairman and Chairman, respectively, of Queens Community Board 7 (CB7), which approved the ramps and associated development despite being aware of the severe unmitigable traffic congestion that they will cause. CB7's request for a fund equivalent to $300,000,000.00 to be used to mitigate anticipated harmful effects of the ramps and development was rejected by City decision-makers, but even that did not prevent Apelian and Kelty from voting to approve the ramps.
