The irony is strong with State Sen. Malcolm Smith.
Despite his widely-reported arrest last month, Smith’s office sent out a notice announcing that he is meeting with several police precincts to discuss how to fight crime in Southeast Queens.
Smith has set aside five Wednesday evenings through June, to meet with the commanding officers of six police precincts, including the 102, 107 and 113, at his district office in Hollis. The flyer has the word “Crime” in big, capital letters with a circle and a line running through it.
According to the flyer, one of the dates was set for April 3, just one day after his arrest. We would imagine that one was cancelled as Smith was probably occupied with other matters around that time.
The flyer sent out regarding the meetings was the second notice Smith’s staff has sent out since he was arrested. A few weeks ago, his office sent out a photo of the State Senator meeting with members of the New York State Nurses Association.
While we at QConf are sure that the residents of Southeast Queens are concerned about crime in their neighborhood, we would recommend that Smith concentrate more on his own legal troubles.
