CONGRATULATIONS, NEW YEAR BLESSINGS WITH PRAYERS FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP, QUEEN MOTHER DR. DELOIS BLAKELY WAS NOT ABLE TO ATTENDED YOUR INNOGURATION & REQUESTS A CALL TO ASSIST IN URGENT COMMUNITY MATTERS THAT THREATEN HER AND OTHER NEW YORKERS
Congratulations on your inauguration as the 109th mayor of this Most Great City of New York. With 55 years of devoted service to this city, Queen Mother Dr. Delois Blakely regrets that this was the first inauguration she had to miss. Due to urgent matters of protecting her 30 year strong, self organized and repaired community building in Harlem, to ensure safe living conditions with heat and hot water, struggling in the dead of winter in a now 11 year long battle in the Court System against predatory lending and mortgage fraud against the HDFC (Housing Development Fund Corporation) low income housing which took decades to secure, Queen Mother was not able to attend.
After just returning from a trip to China, as part of her global investigation for best practices to solve this injustice of inadequate shelter for the poor and powerless, Queen Mother had to recuperate for the long fight ahead, to keep the community building which she secured for other single mothers with handicapped and special needs individuals. Refusing to succumb to the devastation offered through institutions, and arising to provide a working community based solution through cooperative housing earned with sweat and sacrifice, continuing her vow of poverty after becoming a nun within the Convent of New York, dedicating her Harvard, MIT, and Columbia degrees as a champion for global issues that are local, walking untold miles between Harlem to the UN, answering public officials, speaking with world leaders, and living with the people she serves, she has become an icon living between the Two Cities. Earning one dollar a year, she knows how to survive, and is preparing for the next court date on Jan 3rd at the New York State Supreme Court. The attention and participation of the Mayor’s Office, to ensure this heroine is not left in glamor of public words but honored with good deeds, will help this Most Great City advance.
With prayers for this city to realize it’s true potential,
Queen Mother Dr. Delois Blakely
