WPIRA launches television ad campaign

The Willets Point Industry and Realty Association have taken their campaign against the city’s proposed redevelopment to a new medium, buying up time on New York cable stations in an effort to put pressure on the City Council.

The Council is scheduled to vote on the redevelopment plans Nov. 12, and WPIRA spokesperson Patricia Jones said the alliance of property owners plans on being aggressive in its campaign against the project in the final weeks.

“Mayor Bloomberg’s plan to steal land via eminent domain to hand it over a politically-connected developer, while destroying thousands of jobs in the process is absolutely unacceptable and we will fight to the end to stop this land grab,” Jones said.
