The Rockets Red Glare

Queens Gazette wrote about the Astoria Independence Day celebration and Senator Gianaris' participation in the festive evening.

The skies above the East River as seen from Astoria Park lit up as more than 20,000 people gathered in awe on June 30 to celebrate America’s birthday. The fireworks, provided by the Grucci Family, went off at 9:15 p.m., lighting up the skies between the Hell Gate Bridge and Robert F. Kennedy Triborough Bridge.

The fireworks display came after the Astoria Symphony Orchestra performed in front of a crowd on the Astoria Park Lawn. The lawn was filled with people sitting and standing as children blew bubbles and played with glow-in-the-dark swords sold by vendors.

LaValle Outraged at Latest Taxpayer Abuse, To Introduce Legislation to Mitigate Actions by Outgoing School Boards.

New York State Senator Kenneth P. LaValle (R,C,I – Port Jefferson) said today the abuse of taxpayers by two outgoing school boards has prompted him to introduce legislation that would require a lame duck  school board to have a supermajority vote in order to approve a contract for a new superintendent when the hiring occurs between the annual May vote and the annual reorganizational meeting of a local school board. Assemblyman Dan Losquadro (R,C  -Shoreham) will sponsor the legislation in the Assembly.

“My legislation, “ Senator LaValle said, “will prevent these outrageous and unconscionable abuses of taxpayer dollars  by requiring a supermajority vote by a board hoping to quickly push through the hiring of a school superintendent.”
