Letter: Children’s group submits county FOIL

To the Editor, In her capacity as chairperson of the Campaign for Kids, a coalition of more than 50 non-profit organizations and individuals concerned with creating and sustaining strong community-based youth development programs for Westchester youth, Cora Greenberg, executive director of Westchester Children’s Association, has submitted a FOIL records request to Westchester County. The request […]

Letter: Cuomo’s proposal is bad government

To the Editor,  We strongly oppose the governor’s proposal to eliminate newspaper public notice of proposed constitutional amendments. Instead of publishing public notices, the Board of Elections would post an abstract and brief description of the proposed amendment somewhere on its website for three days in the week prior to the election. The secretary of […]

Letter: Thanks to the fire department

To the Editor,  I want to publicly express my thanks and appreciation to the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department under the leadership of Fire Chief Noah Goldberg. On Feb. 11, we had a fire in an apartment at the Hommocks Houses, at the corner of Weaver Street and Post Road. The quick well-orchestrated response of […]

Letter: Radon is a killer

To the Editor, January was National Radon Action Month and the American Lung Association of the Northeast is reminding New Yorkers that radon can affect their lung health. Many may not be aware of what exactly radon is; radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that is found in soil and forms radioactive by-products […]

Letter: Where’s all the letters

To the Editor, Considering the fact that all the newspapers and magazines I read, except for the New York Daily News, are publishing very few, if any, letters from their readers, I conclude that the people no longer have any opinions or their opinions are not worth publishing.

Wade ruling 42 years ago, I urge Congress and state legislators to listen to doctors and medical experts who know that legal abortion is safe, and that politicians should not interfere in personal medical decisions. Despite the fact that abortion is one […]

Letter: Think before you rush to judgment

    To the Editor, In the last year, we have witnessed attacks on our police and condemnation of our long fought judicial rights. While many people felt with the election of a bi-racial president (yes, President Obama is both black and white) tensions would ease and a new dawn would be upon us, it appears […]

Letter: Vote yes for flood project

    To the Editor, On Thursday, we urge you to vote yes on Proposition No. 1, the FEMA Midland Valley Drainage Project. Though village government and Bronxville School governance rarely overlap on capital projects, this FEMA project is a unique joint venture to mitigate flooding on school grounds and in nearby residential neighborhoods. Since […]

Letter: Racism prevails in recent shootings

    To the Editor, More than 40 years ago I read a book called “White Man’s Justice, Black Man’s Grief.” It was a prison novel by the late Donald Goines that detailed the racism and brutality of prison life in America. It was a book about race in America that I read at the […]

Letters: Miller’s comments full of entitlement

    To the Editor, The racist comments of Mamaroneck Village Trustee Ilissa Miller about Latino’s brought a larger issue that I think needs to be addressed. That is the “entitlement” mentality of many whites that engenders the kind of comments that you see not only coming from this trustee but many whites especially in […]
