Keep Our Jones Beach For The People: Stop Donald Trump’s monstrosity

From Jim Brown:

Friends,

For some unfathomable reason the New York State Parks Department and a local judge seem to have caved in to Donald Trump. But we should not despair–justice is on our side.

New York State initially asked for a small restaurant, 46,000 sq feet, to be built along the boardwalk at Jones Beach, a restaurant to serve the people. There is no reason why a restaurant/catering hall/souvenir shop extravaganza of 85,000 square feet should be built instead, to serve the rich, and to provide Donald Trump with ill-gained profit for 40 years. A catering hall which charges $500 per plate has no place on our premier oceanfront State Park.

Trump’s development is an affront to the residents of Long Island and the entire State of New York, indeed his hubris is an affront to common decency. The legacy of Robert Moses on Long Island should not allowed to be trashed and destroyed by this ill-advised development scheme.

Governor Paterson has the ability to halt this project and return Jones Beach to the people. I urge all those who love Jones Beach–and justice–to contact the Governor and demand that the Trump project be stopped. Yes, a small restaurant at Jones beach, to be enjoyed by the average beach goer would be welcomed, but not the monstrosity that Mr. Trump seems intent on building.

Call Governor Paterson at: 518-474-8390 (his Albany office) or 212-681-4580 (his NYC office). Write the Governor at: Executive Chambers, Albany, NY 12224. To email Governor Paterson go to www.ny.gov/governor, and leave an email message–no to the Trump restaurant, catering hall, souvenir shop etc., etc.

Let the Governor know we love Jones Beach and wish to protect it from predatory commercialization! We must fight back, to save our beach!

peace
