Letters to the Editor: East Rockaway, Lynbrook
(Page 3 of 6)
  Tony’s everywhere — on Main Street and Atlantic Avenue, in stores, at East Rockaway and Lynbrook school events, holding office hours in Village Hall, partnering with our first responders to keep the community safe, and passing his third no-tax-increase budget — while maintaining and improving all town services.
  Santino spearheaded the new bulkheading of Bay Park’s Grand Canal, and was both a wealth of information and a vital resource during and after Sandy. He’s helped so many neighbors rebuild and return home since last year.
  But above all, Santino is our neighbor, and he’s earned our support and vote because he understands our unique issues. He’s one of the loudest voices for repairing the Sandy-damaged Bay Park Sewage Plant, and has fought long and hard for its pre-storm upgrades. More recently, he facilitated a grant of $200,000 for the village to upgrade Oxbow Park in East Rockaway. That’s an unmatched record of accomplishment for our community. 
Santino has my vote.

Don’t blame Republicans

To the Editor:
       I had to laugh when I read longshot County Legislature candidate Lisa Daniels’ recent Herald questionnaire. She cannot possibly be serious when she blames Republicans for the release of sewage from the Bay Park Sewage Plant after a nine-foot wall of water flooded out the facility. But, sadly, I think she is.
I am surprised Daniels doesn’t blame Republicans for causing Hurricane Sandy and its flooding to begin with. We all know that nothing can be further from the truth.
Hundreds of millions of dollars were invested into the plant, thanks to County Executive Ed Mangano, Legislator Howard Kopel and Councilman Anthony Santino. They reversed a decade of neglect during which the plant racked up DEC violations and was on the brink of collapse.

Thanks Herald for its endorsement

To the Editor:
  I am truly humbled and I greatly appreciate the Herald’s endorsement for my re-election to the Town Board. Thank you!

I would like to comment on the vile, disgusting and there aren't words to describe how awful it was mailer that we all got which crossed the line from politics to slander. What a shame that some people thought a certain person couldn't win on his merits so they or he used to unfortunate death of a child to smear his opponent. I won't jump in the mud with these thugs, they know who they are. Playing "who me?" Doesn't work, we've seen your fingerprints on elections before. All I can say is it disgusted me and I hope all moral people will stand up and say "enough already". Win on your record, not on how deep in the garbage you can burrow.

Francis Becker and Mangano should know everything there is to know regarding unmitigated disasters, they approved every budget submitted in by Tom Gullotta, they assisted in driving Nassau County into bankruptcy.

Wouldn't it be interesting to see a support letter of these guys by someone whose livelihood does NOT depend on my taxes?
