Community Advocate and attorney Albert Baldeo was published in the January 26th Daily News fighting for the state and local economies to benefit from the Aqueduct revitalization plans. He warns that "we are throwing away $1 million dollars a day in lost revenues for New York State," and is demanding that the Governor make a decision now to stop "suspending payments to hospitals and schools, closing hospitals, raising taxes and cutting services." He is also advocating for the new jobs and economic benefits the deal will bring for working families who live in the Aqueduct area, but warned that workers must be protected by labor laws. His Op-Ed advocacy piece is reproduced below. Albert is also rendering free legal and humanitarian assistance to Haitians who need help after that terrible earthquake destroyed their lives at his Law Offices located at 106-11 Liberty Avenue, Ozone Park in Queens, blocks away from the Aqueduct facility: Tel (718) 529-2300 for appointments.

This week, I received some important information I want to share with my fellow tax payers and DEP officials. My hope is that it will mitigate water theft, reduce the proposed 14% water rate hike, and assist everyone who is finding it difficult to make ends meet in these troubling economic times. The many steep increases in the cost of living in every conceivable area continue to unfairly burden working families. We must expose and curb waste, theft and mismanagement wherever they occur, if we are to recover from the present economic malaise.
