I am not smart enough to understand all this but I found it interesting. The Queens Chronicle reports…
Five individuals connected to contentious development projects in state Sen. Jose Peralta’s D-East Elmhurst district have donated to his borough president campaign, though his disclosures with the city’s Campaign Finance Board do not reveal the connection.All told, two executive-level officials from the New York Mets and three from Major League Soccer contributed this month a total of $1,780 to Peralta’s campaign.
The donations come at a time when Queens residents and elected officials are considering the creation of a $350 million, 25,000-seat MLS stadium in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, as well as a 1.4 million-square-foot shopping mall next to Citi Field to be built by the Mets’ parent company Sterling Equities.
The article identifies Saul Katz as donating $500 and Richard Wilpon as another contributor.
Interesting, that’s all.
