The Capital District YMCA has sent out yet another SPAM mailing asking members to contact their legislators, and to urge them to pass a bill that will release $60 billion to non-profits to offset their alleged losses due to COVID-19!
How can these greedy parasites ask for money to offset losses that are impossible to estimate this early in time? It’s a Perfect Scam!
Here’s an excerpt from the Capital District YMCA’s propaganda email:
YMCAs and our charitable organization partners are asking Congress to pass $60 billion in support for nonprofits and to pass key policy recommendations to support the efforts of nonprofits on the ground.
The previous SPAM mail from the CDYMCA read like this:
They [legislators] need to hear from you about the importance of significant funding to help YMCAs statewide cover the costs associated with full-time and part-time employees, as well as the loss of membership, programming and donation revenue.
The YMCAs statewide need to learn how to operate like other businesses across the state and the nation, who cannot SPAM their customers begging them to ask legislators to bail them out! Normal tax-paying businesses and homeowners are too busy trying to figure out how to meet their tax burdens NOW, since tax bills are out and the government has their hairy hands out for our checks! If they can’t keep their heads above water, then they have to learn how to swim like the rest of us.
Can you imagine going to a state or federal tax audit and claiming losses without hard figures to back you up? Can you imagine going to your legislators as a small or medium business and crying that you lost customers and donation revenue because of Coronavirus, but you don’t have any proof or documentation? They’d laugh you out the door into the parking lot!
Veterans, elderly, the chronically ill, the uninsured, people without healthcare need those $60 billion; most of them are veterans and taxpayers, and unlike CDYMCA CEO David Brown, are not pulling more than $330,000 in salary from the non-profit. By the way, how much is Erin Breslin making, the Sr. VP for Membership, now that she’s slashed the veterans discount in half?
Shame on you, CDYMCA, and all your non-profit tax-avoiders with you!
We’ve contacted legislators and veterans agencies demanding that they take action.
- Charles E. Schumer, US Senator
- Kirsten Gillibrand, US Senator
- Neil D. Breslin, State Legislator
- John T. McDonald III, State Legislator
- George A. Amedore, Jr., State Legislator
- Chris Tague, State Legislator
- Greene County Veterans Service Bureau
- Albany County Veterans Service Bureau
Albany County alone has more than 20,000 veterans, who need to be informed and show their anger in the upcoming elections! Come November, use your vote to sanitize and exterminate all the snakes, rats, and cockroaches from our communities, government, everywhere!
