Markowitz: "Please, please, please" get AY started (because he'd never support anything not in the interests of Brooklyn)

Atlantic Yards Report

[At last month's MTA Finance Committee meeting, the] only elected official to offer pro-project views was Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, who sent Chief of Staff Carlo Scissura, who presented several questionable arguments.

One of the lines was so classic Markowitz that it deserves its own excerpt.

"As we all know, the Borough President would never support anything that is not in the interests of all of Brooklyn and all Brooklynites," Scissura declared.

He wouldn't? Have the interests of Brooklyn been distilled into the consciousness of one enlightened BP? Can they be?

Check out the rest of the article for some stunning lies and developer propaganda delivered by Marty's representative.
