True Colors

Now that Southampton resident Michael Bloomberg has recently declared himself as a candidate in the 2020 presidential election, let’s look at how he has behaved locally.

Numerous articles have been published in The Southampton Press, The Independent, Newsday, The Real Deal and the New York Post, among others, concerning his proposed land grab of Tuckahoe Road, near his Southampton home, and which runs through Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, of which he is a member.

Bloomberg went so far as trying to bribe Tuckahoe School District to get on board with his greedy scheme. One has only to read numerous media articles to be reminded of what took place. I believe Newsday and Channel 12 also carried this story.

Tuckahoe Road has been used for over a century without any recorded safety issues. Yet, Bloomberg touted safety as a reason to close our public road.

If this is how Bloomberg handles local issues, how would it be any different on the national stage or global arena? He has shown his true colors to me, and therefore Bloomberg will not be earning my vote in November 2020.
