She did nothing to advocate for residents when the Windsor was being built and Bovis Lend-Lease was engaging in many illegal practices that were disruptive to the neighborhood. Bovice has since embroiled in many legal problems due to questionable practices, including at the Deutsche Bank building that killed firefighters. Where was she during the decline of our schools and the public school curriculum?

God help us! Typical hack, she carried Bloomberg's water for him and he left her hanging. She voted for his theft of a 3rd term, and the voters showed her the door fast. Let her stay home and raise her rugrats with Curtis and leave us alone.
