Dear Editor (Queens Chronicle):
Why vote? Well I haven’t missed a primary or regular election since being eligible to vote. I am now a senior citizen.
Sen. John McCain is George Bush’s third term. Sen. Barack Obama is rhetoric and charisma for the youth with no real health or Medicare solutions for us older folks. Toby Stavisky is nice, she even sends birthday greetings.
John Liu is absent half the time and never really does much. Asked to station police at Main and Roosevelt, they are hardly ever there. When they do they stay around the corner to give tickets after cars have made illegal turns. Not much help to neighbors who have been hit by drivers that make you wonder if or how they have licenses.
Years ago a shoe repair and key shop under the LIRR was forced out because it caused congestion? Now both sides of Main Street have permanent shops plus vendors clogging the sidewalks. Try getting past with a walker or even normally!
Buses can barely make the turns since a bus terminal promised since at least 1970 was never built but much land has been turned over to private developers.
We are told we do not need term limits. How can you vote anyone backed by the Democratic machine out? Yes, I will go into voting booth and vote for some innocuous people just to keep my record of voting consistent. But as to choice, c’mon, there really isn’t any!
