BEST EGOMANIACAL RANT: Dominic Recchia
At a March community board hearing on the mayor’s rezoning plan, the slimy councilman representing Coney Island took the microphone, reports the Voice, and screamed — like, at the top of his lungs — at the audience: “THE MAYOR WILL PAY ATTENTION! I DON’T KNOW ABOUT OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS! I’M RESPECTED! I AM LOOKED UPON IN THIS COMMUNITY! AND ESPECIALLY AT CITY HALL!” Many members of the Coney community do look upon Recchia… as a menace: a self-described friend of Joe Sitt, the villainous developer, the councilman is believed to have had a major role in shrinking the amusement district in the redevelopment plan by 40 percent while he advocates tirelessly on behalf of campaign-contributing landowners instead of the dupes who elected him.
