Kiryas Joel, NY - Mum’s The Word On Sponsor Of Senate KJ Grant

Kiryas Joel,, NY - A nearly $2 million grant that will be used to improve roadways in Kiryas Joel may be good news for village residents but, for now at least, is shrouded in mystery. 

According to the Times Herald-Record (http://bit.ly/2GijF8z),the bill, which was passed in the Senate and allocated funding for “highway and pedestrian safety improvements ,” does not appear on the Senate website’s 1416 page long listing of grant requests. 

Even more unusual is the fact that while lawmakers are typically eager to spread word of their accomplishments, no one is stepping up to take credit for the mystery grant. 

A spokesperson for Senator Bill Larkin said that the senator had not sponsored the bill and referred the Times Herald-Record to Senate Republican spokesman Scott Reif who did not respond to requests for comment.

Kiryas Joel administrator Gedlaya Szegedin declined to identify the lawmaker responsible for acquiring the grant, which will be used to widen portions of six streets and equip them with new streetlights, storm water catch basins, curbs and sidewalks.

A spokesperson for the state’s Dormitory Authority which administers grants for the State and Municipal Facilities program confirmed that it received the grant request from the Senate Finance Committee last March and completed its review in July after verifying that the grant met all of the program’s requirements.

Kiryas Joel spokesperson Ari Felberman slammed the Times Herald-Record for what he termed biased coverage, printing a picture of Kiryas Joel accompanied by artwork depicting piles of money on its front cover.

“The fact that no elected official feels safe to take credit for enhancing pedestrian safety in an environmentally friendly manor, speaks volumes to the anti Kiryas Joel bias which the media continues to foment,” Felberman told VIN News.

Ari Felberman is correct. I call it fake news. This is their game. They hid under discrimination and lies by crying transparency. So sad

This shouldn't be too hard to figure out just look at polling records and then you can come up with a short list.

And perhaps people who are notorious for posting idiotic comments should be sent to the nut house.
Enough with your vile comments.

He isn’t self hating. His problems are far more complex. He’s extremely delusional on most days and he hears voices in his head.
