Letter: Miller: I am sorry

Dear Editor, The published comments from my [Mamaroneck Review] interview last week about the Latino community in the Village of Mamaroneck were careless, hurtful and wrong. For this I am sorry. I know that my comments angered many members of our community. No one should ever feel as if there is a limit to what […]

Letter: Tiekert praticing civil discourse?

    To the Editor, Stuart Tiekert, in his recent letter to the editor, used the term “civil discourse” twice, once in the beginning and once at the end. In each case, he cites it as something the mayor, Norman Rosenbaum, and Trustee Andres Bermudez Hallstrom have failed to live up to. In his argument […]

Letter: Civil Rights deaths shouldn’t be in vain

    To the Editor, June 21, 2014, was the 50th anniversary of the slaughter of three civil rights heroes—Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner—in Philadelphia, Miss., who were engaged in an effort to have African-Americans register to vote. They were a part of the “freedom summer” campaign, fighting the racist, brutal and evil […]

Letter: Rosenblum, Bermudez are uncivil, poor examples

To the Editor, Mayor Norman Rosenblum’s authoritarian leadership style and penchant for secrecy has inexorably led to the $55 million Hampshire Country Club lawsuit alleging Open Meetings Law violations and has brought Village of Mamaroneck civil discourse to a new low. What’s so bad about Mayor Rosenblum’s behavior? He demonizes those who dare to have […]

Letter: Ignorance is bliss on the Harrison Town Council

    To the Editor, The old adage “ignorance is bliss” could not be more obvious than when looking at the current Town/Village of Harrison’s elected officials. Once again, during a seven-year stretch, they have modified the plans for the public fiasco known as Project Home Run along the Beaver Swamp Brook. Ten million dollars […]

To the Editor, I am pleased to announce that, at the Westchester County Board of Legislators meeting on Aug. 4, 2014, my colleagues and I unanimously passed a $5 million bond act to rehabilitate 40 roads and bridges throughout the county, including critical sections of roadways in Harrison. The bond act will fund the design, […]

Letter: A Republican for Latimer

    To the Editor, As a registered Republican, I am writing in support of George Latimer’s re-election to the New York State Senate. I have lived in Rye for a long time and met many fine people and officials, but no one has the long-term record of George Latimer. I can remember he was […]

Letter: Larchmont likes Latimer

    To the Editor, In last week’s edition, the Republicans announced an opponent for George Latimer for the state Senate. I have known George for a long time, as have many of our Larchmont and Mamaroneck friends, and he has been a tremendous and effective advocate for all of us. Thus, I was a […]

Letter: Letter mischaracterized France’s Vietnam defeat

To the Editor, Clifford Jackson’s letter in your July 18 edition notes the 60th anniversary of the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu and highlights Vietnam as a “victim of the west.” While I’ll agree with that broad overall description, there are way too many misstatements of fact in his letter to ignore. After Japanese […]

Letter: There’s more to Playland than sound bites

To the Editor, The Rye City Review article on 2014 Playland Amusement Park attendance improvement references the Westchester County issued 2005 Playland Park attendance of one million visitors versus 2013 attendance of 400,000 visitors. In 2005, Playland’s unaudited attendance census of one million visitors was a formula of total cars entering parking lots factoring four […]
