Dear Editor (Queens Chronicle):
I’ve called Congressman Joseph Crowley’s office on several occasions to inquire where he stands on key issues, as well as to comment on his inaction for years in addressing the growing graffiti blight in his 7th District. Each time, I was told that the congressman does not discuss policy by phone and I would have to access his website — the assumption being that all of Mr. Crowley’s growing number of unemployed constituents have on-line access. Does the phrase “Let them eat cake” come to mind?
My dear fellow Queens constituents — when are you going to realize that keeping such politicians in public office since the buffalo roamed is killing us as a nation? Crowley has become so complacent that he doesn’t feel the need to review major legislation such as the stimulus and cap and trade bills before he rubber stamps them through on strictly partisan lines, without a care as to how they affect the majority of his middle-class constituency. It’s long past time for Joe to go.
