Kirsten Gillibrand campaign spent $57,000 on flowers - New York Post
Virgin Islands, and a $300 charge to New York’s Playwrights Horizon Theater for “research.”
Gillibrand reps said the Broadway charge was to send a staffer to watch “The True” — a play about Gillibrand’s grandmother.
“These are routine campaign expenses compiled over a decade: campaign staff parking tickets, office supplies, thank you gifts for fundraising hosts, and travel costs associated with fundraising overseas,” Gillibrand spokesman Evan Lukaske told The Post.
But a source close to the legislator said, “It doesn’t exactly look good.”
The spending is in stark contrast to Gillibrand’s senior, and apparently more austere, colleague, Sen. Chuck Schumer.
A review of FEC filings from the same time period shows the minority leader never reached into his Senate fund for unpaid parking tickets, spent a mere $1,350 on flowers and generally eschewed the finer things. Supporter gifts were more modest, such as cheesecakes from Junior’s.
Schumer also has a taste for private air travel, but his bills to Air Charter Express were less than a third of Gillbrand’s — $125,000.
Even if the expenditures pass legal muster, pros said they still didn’t pass the smell test.
“Why visit her husband’s family? What does that have to do with campaigning? If I was a donor to Sen. Gillibrand, I would want more information,” said Larry Sabato, a political analyst and professor at the University of Virginia. “If I am going to give her money, I would like to know if it’s going to legitimate campaign purposes, and some of those don’t sound particularly legitimate to me. It may be legal but that doesn’t mean it’s within the spirit of the law.”

Winter Flower Bomb Looks to Highlight Everett Square Bus Stop - Everett Independent
Today, Dec. 18, BRT officials and Mayor
DeMaria will be at the bus stop on Broadway/Chelsea to showcase the Winter
Flower Bomb – another creation by Krissy Price at the bus stop based upon a
palette of winter plants. Mayor DeMaria and BRT officials will hand out hot
chocolate, hot cider, candy canes and other treats as they tout the benefits of
BRT in Everett and beyond.
“Broadway is one of Greater Boston’s
highest-potential transit corridors, so it’s important that we not only
prioritize but really celebrate our buses and the people who ride them,” said
Mayor DeMaria. “I urge everyone who rides the bus to speak up for more
improvements and BRT, and if you haven’t ridden the bus lately, you should! The
experience may be a pleasant surprise.”
* If you do not want to deal with the intricities of the noscript

Adrian Gill, of Ad Hoc Industries, is serving
as the creative director for the BRT initiative and said the Winter Flower Bomb
will be a way to generate excitement for something that typically isn’t
exciting – waiting for the bus.
“We really thought the last Flower Bomb was
super successful and we wanted to ty to do a winter version that could stay up
longer,” he said. “The last one was only up three days because of the nature of
fresh-cut flowers. Jan 4, 2020
A new pollinator garden is building buzz in Metro Vancouver | Urbanized - Daily Hive
BC staff looking at newly planted pollinator garden/FortisBC
Located at the foot of Burnaby Mountain trail on the greenspace near the intersection of Broadway and Underhill Avenue, the new garden was designed to attract and support local pollinators. According to Elle, the best time to visit the new garden will be next spring/summer when many of its plants flower.
Metro Vancouver’s new pollinator garden is made up of nine different species of plants chosen specifically because pollinators are wild about them. This includes 15 vine maples and hundreds of flowering shrubs and bushes. We’re talking about red elderberry, mock orange, snowberry, thimbleberry, vine maples, Saskatoon serviceberries, yarrow, Nootka rose, and Oregon grape — all of the things a buzzing bee population might need.
“This is about so much more than the honeybee. It’s about amazing biodiversity. By planting a diversity of plants, you’re going to support more of that diversity of pollinators, more of those 450 species of bees,” explains Elle. “I would like to see more organizations consider creating pollinator gardens like this when they are completing restoration work – it can really make a big difference.”
Elle notes that the plants FortisBC has chosen will provide amazing habitats for pollinators, as well as the food that they need to survive and raise their offspring. “It’s really important for the functioning ecosystem and to protect the pollinators that produce the food that we eat, that the bears eat, and that the birds eat.”
Hoping to do your bit to support local wild bee populations at home? You could start by planting pollinator plants like fleabane, spider flowers, foxgloves, artichokes, hollyhocks, and sunflowers.
