NYC Based Pastor Conrad Bennette Tillard Warns Blacks Against Voting For Billionaire Mike Bloomberg
"Bloomberg has a record now, so if we fall victim again, then the old adage is true, "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." Conrad Bennette Tillard

OP-ED By Pastor Conrad Bennette Tillard
Brooklyn, New York -- This is how Mike Bloomberg became Mayor of New York City in 2001, I was there, the first Black person on the radio to endorse and support him.  Black talk radio and the Black community made him in politics then, thus he is coming to us again now.

A playbook that he is attempting to dust off again. These folks in the media think they know more than they actually do.

They should have New York folks on to talk about New York stuff. Bloomberg is not a Republican, in fact he has always been a Democrat , he only become a Republican to run for Mayor in 2001. Secondly, why are these folks acting like Bloomberg, is this charismatic figure that will overwhelm the electorate. Showbusiness?

Bloomberg has the charisma of a back office accountant.

Kamau Austin's Exclusive Interview with Triniflavor's Owner Julia Ottley
Kamau Austin
Kamau:  Can you tell us a little about your background and life growing up in Southeast Queens.

Julia's Answer: I am originally from the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. My family is of Caribbean descent. I have lived in the Southeast Queens area for the past 8 years after purchasing my first home.

Julia Ottley Owner
Triniflavors Creations
 I am an only child, however; I grew up in a large extended family surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. I have always loved creating things and being unique.

I loved attending “fancy” parties and events and the art of transforming the old into a new spectacular. I have always been one to put my all into everything I do; and have explored various crafts over my many years.

Growing up I always knew I would own my own business, however; this longing has taken me through a variety of career paths that shaped my current business venture.

Kamau:  What inspired you to go into your present business?

Julia's Answer: There are a host of companies providing these services on the higher end of the market, thus leaving the average individual unable to afford these high-end businesses price lines. After working for several of these notable establishments, realizing they were not catering to the community within which I resided.

I wanted to change this setting and offer quality services and products to meet the needs of my community. In addition; I worked at a lounge during my college years which I truly enjoyed.

Notwithstanding the fact, I would continually assist many friends and relatives with their events, it has been mentioned that I take it on full-time. Therefore, after assisting with several events I was being asked why I do not charge for my services.
