Jefferson Park Situation - A Message

The following message (for Councilman Reed) was forwarded to me for inclusion on this forum:

COUNCILMAN PHIL REED
WHAT HAPPENED?
WHERE ARE YOU?
TALK TO US!


EXPLAIN TO US OF EAST HARLEM, EL BARRIO WHY "THE
GLADIATORS" A VOLUNTEER BOXING TRAINING PROGRAM, HOUSED IN THOMAS JEFFERSON PARK, 113 ST. & FIRST AVENUE FOR THE LAST TWENTY ODD YEARS, WAS CLOSED DOWN, SHUT OUT, OUSTED, MOVED OUT, BECAUSE? CAN YOU TELL US, YOUR CONSTITUENTS OF EAST HARLEM, EL BARRIO. WHY THIS HAPPENED?????

THIS HAS BEEN A TERRIFIC PROGRAM THAT KEPT OUR YOUTH OFF THE STREETS, OUT OF JAIL, OFF DRUGS, IN SCHOOL AND PREPARED SOME FOR THE GOLDEN GLOVES. THE END RESULT BEING, WE HAVE GLADIATOR GRADUATES WHO TODAY ARE LAWYERS, POLICEMENT AND DOCTORS. TALK TO US! VIA MEDIA, NEWSPAPERS, NEWSLETTER OR TOWN HALL MEETING. ANY WAY POSSIBLE.
COMMUNICATION IS VITAL.

CONCERNED CITIZENS OF EL BARRIO
