Letter: Latimer has fought for Harrison schools

To the Editor, Once again our mailboxes are full of political campaign propaganda. For some, these mailings serve as the only source of information on local races. One that caught my eye was from a candidate for state Senate, Joe Dillon, accusing Sen. George Latimer of failing Harrison schools. As a former school board member […]

Letter: Proposition Three has holes in it

To the Editor, Turn over your ballot on Election Day Nov. 4 and vote no for Proposition 3. “The Smart Schools Bond Act of 2014 authorizes the sale of New York State bonds of up to $2 billion to provide access to classroom technology and high-speed internet connectivity to equalize opportunities for children to learn, […]

Letter: Vote no on Proposal One

To the Editor, Proposal One on this year’s November ballot is frequently called the “Fake Reform Amendment.” Supporters say this sets up an independent commission to draw up state legislative and federal congressional districts. This is not true; the proposed commission is not independent. A court decision required the state Board of Elections to remove […]

Letter: Latimer is a tireless worker

To the Editor,  With Election Day coming up quickly on Nov. 4, I want to encourage all voters in New York’s 37th state Senate district to come out to re-elect our state Sen. George Latimer. My wife and I have known Sen. Latimer for years. Throughout his public life, he has made himself accessible by […]

letter: We need retail development

To the Editor, There has been some talk about developing New Rochelle recently. If the new development plan is anything like what we have now we should forget it. We currently have Avalon I and II, Trump Plaza and New Roc City. None of these developments has reduced our taxes or made New Rochelle more […]

Letter: Reader: Latimer gets my vote

To the Editor, I would like to express my wholehearted support for Sen. George Latimer’s re-election to the New York State Senate. As a constituent of nearly 20 years, I can say that George truly serves the community. He has consistently worked hard and listened to the residents of the Sound Shore community. Whether the issue is […]

Letter: Why was this new fence allowed?

To the Editor, The following is an open to Village of Mamaroneck Zoning Board of Appeals. I am writing about the new fence at the beach at Harbor Island Park because I do not understand how the Village of Mamaroneck could construct such an ugly, jerry-rigged fence with no oversight by any of our boards and […]

Letter: Some facts about public comment

To the Editor, The irony is, when myself and Mayor Rosenblum were first elected and we opened up meetings for public comment on all agenda items. The complaint was it would make the meetings chaotic. Now, the naysayers are complaining that the agenda should be second to the main purpose of any Board of Trustees […]

Letter: Schools need more funding

To the Editor, As a member of the U.S. Army Reserve from 1965 to 1970, a school tax break for veteran’s sounds like a welcome proposal. As a senior, living on a fixed income, the idea seems especially appealing. However, considering the times we live in, with funding for Rye public schools under siege from both local anti-bond issue voters […]
