Pete on the defense

Dear Editor (Queens Chronicle):

I am responding to a letter from David Quintana, who in a letter last week complained that I had been “notably absent” from a press conference on increasing education funding. I could not attend that event because I was in the middle of chairing a budget hearing for the Public Safety Committee, where I was speaking with NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly about getting more police officers on our streets. One would think that a person who would make such a strong accusation would first research their facts.

I have two young girls in the New York City public school system, which means no one in the City Council cares more about education funding than me. Our city needs great schools to thrive, but it also needs safe streets to keep our kids out of harms way. As an elected representative, it’s my job to balance these responsibilities, and I can only be in one place at a time.

Peter Vallone Jr.,
chair, Public Safety Committee
New York City Council


You're upset because he said you weren't there? Since when is noting someone's absence a "strong accusation" of anything? Did you bother to send a representative to the education meeting, Pete? I can't wait until this guy runs for boro prez next year, folks. He may have a nervous breakdown.

"... no one in the City Council cares more about education funding than me."

Peter, Peter. If you really cared anything about education, you would speak properly - to at least set an example for your two daughters whom you trot out for political purposes.

The correct statement would have been: "... no one in the City Council cares more about education funding THAN I."

Now, go to your room and finish your homework. No dinner until it's complete. Or else, you'll get another spanking.

Sounds like Vallone didn't do his homework when he was a boy. Maybe that's why he wants less homework for kids now.

Pete sure does look sharp here in his early 80's vintage poweder blue suit.

The puss looks like "El Duce."

About ready to expand the nabe? I can just see it now: "They fell asleep the contented residents of Roosevelt Island, and awoke under the grey dawn of New Astoria."

Normally I don't comment on peoples looks - not important to me. He sure does look just like El Duce but with hair.

My original letter can be found here...

I called Mr. Vallone's office late Friday afternoon and left a message...

I'd like to talk to him about how he feels about the rest of my letter...

The paragraph concerning his absence was a mere 53 words of a 946 word letter (5%)...

The main thrust of my letter was how when the Bloomberg administration has to deal with budget cuts how they throw the most vulnerable (school kids) under the bus...
