Letter: Silly, isn’t it?

    To the Editor, Why do people have guns? In the United States we have law enforcement to protect us. There are local, county and state police, and federal law enforcement agencies. We also have some in security-type positions carrying guns. The right to bear arms should remain. The right to bear arms was really put in place to […]

    To the Editor, I am writing to remind all of our residents that The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe has launched its annual campaign for 2014-15. While we are off to a strong start, we have a lot of ground to cover to reach our goal of $550,000. As president of […]

Letter: Peace remains up to Isreal

To the Editor, To bring to an end the crimes against humanity being committed against Palestinians everyday by Israel, and Israel’s right to defend itself from further attacks is predicated on several major principles.

Letter: Charter changes must follow procedure

To the Editor, Something is very wrong in the City of Rye. Mayor Sack and the City Council recently changed our city charter twice. The first change took place at a regular City Council meeting, with no notice to the public and no public discussion. This change was relatively minor, but still a change to […]

Letter: Latimer has fought for Harrison schools

One that caught my eye was from a candidate for state Senate, Joe Dillon, accusing Sen. George Latimer of failing Harrison schools. As a former school board member […]

Letter: Proposition Three has holes in it

To the Editor, Turn over your ballot on Election Day Nov. 4 and vote no for Proposition 3. “The Smart Schools Bond Act of 2014 authorizes the sale of New York State bonds of up to $2 billion to provide access to classroom technology and high-speed internet connectivity to equalize opportunities for children to learn, […]

Letter: Vote no on Proposal One

To the Editor, Proposal One on this year’s November ballot is frequently called the “Fake Reform Amendment.” Supporters say this sets up an independent commission to draw up state legislative and federal congressional districts. This is not true; the proposed commission is not independent. A court decision required the state Board of Elections to remove […]

Letter: Latimer is a tireless worker

To the Editor,  With Election Day coming up quickly on Nov. 4, I want to encourage all voters in New York’s 37th state Senate district to come out to re-elect our state Sen. George Latimer. My wife and I have known Sen. Latimer for years. Throughout his public life, he has made himself accessible by […]

letter: We need retail development

To the Editor, There has been some talk about developing New Rochelle recently. If the new development plan is anything like what we have now we should forget it. We currently have Avalon I and II, Trump Plaza and New Roc City. None of these developments has reduced our taxes or made New Rochelle more […]
