Days Before the GOP Primary Becker Receives Key Endorsement | LIpolitics.com : Long Islands Political Network
Frank Scaturro claims ‘Tea Party’ support but lets remember what he did to Nassau Tea Party activist Dan Maloney in the 2010 Primary. Frank ‘Dirty Tricks’ Scaturro tried to get Maloney thrown off the ballot.
Maloney also reminds his supporters about Scaturro’s Specter connections and the fact that Scaturro had an Arlen Specter staffer and fundraiser as his Finance Director. There are lots of ‘Friends of Arlen’ that are also ‘Friends of Frank’. Frank’s attempts to distance himself from his former boss, who he respected so much that he wrote a book with him, to fool Republican voters are truly dispicable.
Each year Fran attends the AHRC’s (Association for the Help of Retarded Children) Rose Ball to sing the National Anthem and support this amazing organization which helps thousands of individuals with developmental disabilities. This year’s honoree was football super star Jim Kelly and his wife Jill. Many years ago they created their own foundation Hunter’s Hope Foundation after the death of one of their son Hunter from the very rare Krabbe’s disease. Early screening and detection for Krabbe’s and other rare diseases like it can often save the lives of the afflicted children. The Kelly family has been on a crusade to get these screenings to become a routine part of newborn care to so that all children will be tested and get the benefits of early intervention. At the event, the Kelly family intermingled Jim’s amazing career and four Super Bowl appearances (humorously stating the Giants loss being the most painful) together with their spiritual journey in celebrating their son’s 8 short years of life and how his courage and love has impacted them all their lives. Appearing also in the photo is the philanthropist duo of Tom and Cynthia Rosicki whose unending, generous financial support of the AHRC has helped the less fortunate on Long Island and across the country in many profound and meaningful ways.
For years people have complained to me about our current representative in Washington D.C., Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. One person said to me recently, “Watch this, she will fly in to campaign for a week before Election Day and afterwards we won’t see her again for two years.” When I ran against Carolyn McCarthy two years ago in 2010, this is exactly what she did. As I often stated during the campaign at the time, Carolyn McCarthy is completely out of touch with her district—as is evidenced in part by her ultra liberal votes for Obamacare and the wasteful trillion dollar stimulus package — and this is the reason why: To best represent the people you serve, I believe you have to be present with them in the district so you can listen, know and understand their concerns and their hopes for the future and those they hold for their families and our country. Simply put, Carolyn McCarthy is never here to do that, so she can’t really know and that is why she votes the way she does. It should be obvious to everyone by now that Carolyn McCarthy has very little concern for us as illustrated by her total absence from the district which has been going on for years and years now. During my tenure in representing Valley Stream, Lynbrook, Malverne, East Rockaway and Rockville Centre in the Nassau County Legislature I have seen her perhaps six times. READ THE REST HERE
This past Saturday Fran was involved and assisted in the Convoy of Hope’s massive humanitarian effort of bringing food, health services, shoes, haircuts and many other services including spiritual counseling to the needy communities of Nassau County. During these bad economic times, the poor and less fortunate suffer greatly and there is only so much government can do. The event took place at Mitchell Field and Fran worked with County Executive Ed Mangano in securing the site as well as assuring that there was minimal cost to Convoy of Hope to stage the event here in Nassau. The Bethlehem Assembly of God of Valley Stream under the leadership of Pastor Steve Milazzo coordinated and sponsored the event. Over 1300 voluteers from churches around the county participated in assuring the event was a success—which it was—in ministering to over 5,000 people and their families. Fran and the Becker for Congress committee want to thank Pastor Steve, the Bethlehem Assembly of God and all the volunteers for their enormous act of charity and kindness and for doing God’s work here in Nassau in helping the needy and less fortunate.
