Helen Marshall Approves USTA Expansion With Pay-To-Play Conditions
As expected, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall formally approved the expansion of the USTA facility in Flushing Meadows Corona Park with conditions. The conditions include the creation of an FMCP alliance with the USTA donating $15 million dollars towards the fund.
Throughout the USTA hearing held by Helen Marshall on April 4th, the Borough President repeatedly complimented the USTA and their supporters and consistently interrupted speakers who criticized her.
