Opponents of the East 91st Street garbage transfer facility launched a new ad attacking Mayor Bill de Blasio today for purportedly ignoring the plight of Upper East Side minorities and low-income residents in building the station.
The 30-second spot, titled “De Blasio’s Dirty Little Secret,” features several unnamed individuals citing their concerns about the facility which is scheduled to open in 2016.
“Just because we’re minorities and live in public housing doesn’t mean we should get treated any differently,” says one woman featured in the ad.
The ad is paid for by Pledge 2 Protect, a group of Upper East Side residents who have mounted a consistent and vocal opposition to the project in recent years.
The group did not disclose the size of the buy, but said it will run on local television stations and online.
