|TRUE or FALSE?|
As a 6th Ward resident, the honesty of my Council representative matters most.
So when a GA reader sent me a Hudson Reporter article, about offensive statements made by Mr. Garcia's then-Assembly aide at an April 10, 2014 HHA meeting, this caught my eye:

Was that TRUE?
Was Assembyman Carmelo Garcia really doing a "Numero Uno" or "Numero Dos" when his $10,000 a year Assembly-aide went off on the Jewish people?
GA went back to the transcript of the April 10, 2014 HHA meeting.
On page 131, Ms. Waiters is called to speak.
|page 131- April 10, 2014 HHA meeting transcript|
On page 133, Executive Director Garcia leaves, saying, "I will be right back. Please wait." The recess, until Garcia returns, is recorded as lasting "two minutes."
On page 138, Ms. Waiters begins her tirade about Jews after Director Garcia has returned to the meeting (from the bathroom?)
On page 187, Carmelo Garcia's then-Assembly aide speaks for a second time, again ranting about Jews in the presence of her boss, Carmelo Garcia.
Based on EVIDENCE, Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia was PRESENT during his Assembly aide's tirade(s) about the Jewish people.
And said, and DID nothing.
