Ellner

http://www.brianellner.com

Ellner provides pro bono legal counsel to the LGBT Community Center and Freedom to Marry and serves on the board of the Hetrick Martin Institute, an agency that serves queer youth and runs the Harvey Milk High School. From his vantage point on the Hetrick-Martin board and from his former work on a community school board, Ellner has developed a concern for student safety in the public schools. With harassment, including that aimed at queer youth, "sometimes at hands of administrators and teachers," he argued that "leadership must come from the top." But the issues facing young gay and lesbian youth are deeper than a school problem in his view. Citing a "record number of homeless LGBT youth," Ellner said, "Our city and our community has failed young people." In referring to "our community," he is talking about gay and lesbian adults, who are not responding to the reality of queer youth coming out at earlier ages, and often running into trouble about their sexuality at home, an issue that leads some of them to lives on the streets. From Ellner's perspective, we also see the impact of insufficient adult and government leadership in the current wave of crystal abuse spreading through the queer community. "There has been a woefully inadequate and slow response," he argued, "even though we've known about this problem for years. The response has been slow, insufficient and cumbersome. I am tired of talking to young people who have recently sero-converted." If becoming the first gay person elected to borough-wide office in New York is noteworthy, Ellner said, it is because of the impact it could have on queer youth. "I want to show them that an openly gay man can win, rather than coming out in scandal like McGreevey," he said, referring to the former New Jersey governor who announced his resignation last summer on the same day he acknowledged that he is gay. The answer to the crystal scourge, in Ellner's view, is treatment, not the "draconian Rockefeller drug laws." While stating that drug sellers should be prosecuted, he expressed sympathy with gay men and lesbians nervous about the announcement last year by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration that it was targeting the crystal problem in the queer community. "I understand their concerns," Ellner said. "I would not put a lot of trust in federal law enforcement." Asked about the recent state appeals court ruling that upheld the zoning laws aimed at ridding Manhattan of adult businesses, Ellner said, "We can't see adult business completely zoned out of Manhattan," even as he acknowledged "legitimate community concerns with problematic clustering" of such establishments. Unsafe sexual conduct at such businesses should not be tolerated, he said. Ellner said some of the borough president's greatest powers come in terms of influencing land use decisions, and he pledged to press for guaranteed low and moderate-income set-asides in any zoning changes enacted to facilitate development. He pointed to the success of Brooklyn Borough Pres. Marty Markowitz on such issues as a model for how he would approach the development process. Just this week, the city announced significant zoning changes for Greenpoint and Williamsburg that will ensure the construction of affordable housing. Like many Democrats, Ellner is an ardent foe of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plans for a West Side stadium, saying that instead Shea Stadium in Queens should be rebuilt as a home for both the Mets and the Jets. Dismissing the notion that a West Side stadium may be popular among union construction workers and in communities of color for the jobs it will generate, he argued that alternative development plans, including a new Shea stadium, could yield more than twice the number of jobs. At the same time, the candidate is quick to credit the mayor for his recent commitment to dedicate revenues from Battery Park City to the construction of new moderate and low-income housing. In line with his effort to project himself as a new voice on the political scene, Ellner promotes a variety of innovative concepts such as developing green zones throughout Manhattan and exploring new means of limiting traffic, from tolling the East River bridges to adapting an Eazy Pass-type system to charge cars from outside the city for using Midtown streets during the workday. Ellner pointed with pride to the support he has from one out-of-city Democrat, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who briefly brought gay marriage to that city last year. Like Newsom, Ellner sees himself "as the future of the Democratic Party."

Our commitment to service excellence and continuous professional growth ensures that, even as the world changes and legal needs become more complex, our clients will receive the very best legal representation. Neil McCarty, a fourth-generation Kaukauna resident, founded the law firm in 1949 after graduating from Harvard law school. Neil, who practiced estate planning and general corporate law, began with a simple promise to his clients - that he would provide them with trusted advice and exceptional service. In 1961, Neil recognized the need for an experienced litigator and hired Irv Curry. Irv was responsible for all litigation and became the firm's managing partner, providing leadership to the business operations of the firm. He was instrumental in developing a true partnership that would later become McCarty Law. Expanding to meet the needs of the market, Neil and Irv recruited a partner with a strong real estate background. Dennis Wydeven joined the firm in 1972, merging his independent practice in Kimberly to become a key member of the firm. Dennis is recognized for his contributions to the unique and special culture that is appreciated by clients and employees at McCarty Law. Neil, Irv and Dennis created the foundation of the law firm that exists today. From our roots in Kaukauna - at the intersection of Lawe and Wisconsin Streets, to the Bank of Kaukauna building, to the Pechman Building, to 120 East Fourth Street - to our new location at 2401 East Enterprise Avenue in Appleton, helping our clients grow and succeed has been key to the firm's development and expansion.
