Recent editions of The Wave have wrongfully given readers the impression that I have been selected to redevelop the courthouse.
As the community is aware, my goal all along has been to see the courthouse restored whether by another developer or me.
The recent EDC request for proposals has been so successful in attracting qualified developers that I have asked EDC to only consider my application in the event that the other proposals fall short of acceptance.
Of course, I will continue to give attention to other areas of the peninsula that need some attention. Additionally, the real credit for moving this project along belongs to Dan Tubridy, Vicent O'Connor, Jonathan Gaska, Borough President Claire Shulman and the Wave editorial staff.
