The horrors of it all:

"What Datta does not mention is that Tarik immediately proposed a solution that would greatly expand the services offered at the facility, transforming the senior center into an intergenerational community center. He brought together three community housing agencies, Broome County United Way, members of the Broome County CASH Coalition (which includes AARP) and credit union representatives to discuss a “Prosperity Center,” which would include a workforce training program in food preparation, a nationally accredited home ownership center, a credit union offering special services for low-income residents, and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Centers offered annually by United Way and AARP to help seniors and low-income residents file their tax returns."

I mean... we all know folks like the AARP hate retirees...

LOL !!!

Seniors - Tarik Abdelazim would rather fund his useless municipal wifi project for over $200,000 than keep your Greenman Senior Center open.

Those are his priorities.

You have the proof.

Your senior center is closed, the wifi nobody needs is still going.

"While Tarik was director of planning, housing and community development, the Greenman Center indeed closed when the 30-year-old heating and ventilation systems suddenly broke down. As the facility is the responsibility not of the planning director, but of the Parks Department, the parks director quickly solicited bids for emergency repairs."

Reading comprehension problems on your part again...
