The more the merrier..............

Well, still haven't heard from NY City Council so the following is yet another reminder.  This time I included ALL members of the Committee of the Fire and Criminal Justice.  Think someone will respond..............this time?

"I have sent numerous follow-ups to Councilwoman Crowley (w/copy to Oddo) and she has not seen fit to acknowledge my inquiries. And, surprisingly, neither has Jim Oddo. While I can appreciate that I may now be a "thorn" in both their sides, I assure you that is not my intention. Based on my various communications with Councilman Oddo over the past couple of years, and his pledge to me that he would continue to pursue matters concerning the Department of Corrections and my brother, John S. Turner, who has been buried on Hart Island since January 1972, I will continue on and not allow the injustice that was done to me, and indirectly my brother, until the situation at-hand has been dealt with in, what I consider to be, a satisfactory manner Again, all attachments are self-explanatory and I will not repeat the facts here.

I am now including all of you, members of the Committee on Fire and Criminal Justice Service, in another follow-up (my 4th) to Ms. Crowley in the hope that one of you may be of assistance to me since she has not even acknowledged my existence. While I can certainly appreciate there are more important matters at hand, I note the Committee will be meeting on September 27, 2011 @ 10:00 a.m. and, therefore, suggest the topic of the Department of Corrections, Julie Lantz and John Turner be placed on the Committee’s Agenda.

I thank you for your consideration and trust I will hear from one of you, if not Councilman Crowley, in due course.

Now...............what's the hang-up?

Still haven't heard from NY City Council - man they've no idea what a force I'll be to reckon with when I get through to them, and trust me I will.  A force much greater than all of us propels me, and that's the spirit of my brother, John, not to mention the thousands of others.  Don't mess with the Turner family.

So what's the reason now for not responding to my numerous requests? Hurricane Irene, the recent earthquake?  Last month, I suppose it was the potholes, or the weeds that may be growing within the cracks of the sidewalks?  Oh, I know, maybe it's just that you have a bunch of heartless, cold and unfeeling people on City Council who don't think the issues of a woman in Southern California concerning New York and how they treated the death of  her (my) brother so long ago aren't important enough to warrant an acknowledgement. One morning, while you're sipping your latte and reading the paper, you will see your name(s) and believe me, it won't be mentioned in a good light.  Remember that scene at the end of Poltergeist when Jo Beth Williams' character fell in the pool they were building and all the corpses popped up?  Well, beware of the spirits of the dead - they have their ways of getting what they want and need and pop up at the most unexpected times. In this case, these spirits will be going through me, and I will continue on their behalf, including my brother's, so that they may finally & completely rest in peace............before they die once more.  I'm not rich, I've little resources at the moment, but what I do have is passion for my mission.  And, never underestimate the passion of a Hungarian woman. Tenacity, persistence and just being a plain ol' pain in the ass can take a person a long way. Bye for now.
