Letter: Belanger, more than just a friend

To the Editor, I am writing to share a personal anecdote about my recent experience working with school board candidate Karen Belanger, my friend of more than six years. Members who are resourceful, versatile and are committed to representing their constituency best serve any leadership organization. Belanger possesses these skills, which have significantly benefitted our […]

Letter: School superintendent: Letter crossed the line

To the Editor, In its April 24, 2014, edition, the Rye City Review printed a letter that went over the line. This letter, written by someone who is not a resident of Rye, made ad hominem attacks on children who bravely came forward with respect to allegations of potential misconduct. While it is bad enough […]

Letter: New York’s education system: A pitiful mess

To the Editor, Over the past few weeks, I have taken the time to read the lawsuit filed by Carin Mehler, watch the YouTube video of the last Rye City Board of Education meeting and listen to state Sen. George Latimer’s contribution to a New York State education symposium. What I come away with is […]

Letter: Don’t blame Astorino for being a typical politician

    To the Editor, There has been a lot of talk surrounding Robert Astorino’s announcement he is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of New York. There has been criticism by Democrats, especially that he was just re-elected as county executive and now he decides to run for the gubernatorial seat. A quick look […]

Letter: Op-ed about town off-base

To the Editor, I write in regard to the op-ed by Barry S. Gedan in the Feb. 28 issue. I enjoy the Mamaroneck Review but don’t always get to read it right away. I wish this letter was more timely. Mr. Gedan’s assertions are outrageous, offensive, absurd, wrong, divisive and need to be refuted. There […]

Letter: Inequality still prevalent for women, minorities

To the Editor, For thousands of years, women were considered inferior to men and even men’s property. Women weren’t paid for their labor. Women are making progress. Now, women are only underpaid. It takes the average woman 15 months of work to make as much as the average man makes in one year. That’s what […]

Letter: Nelson Mandela, a true revolutionary

To the Editor, Thirty-three years ago, while attending my alma mater, the University of Buffalo, I did a one-hour oral presentation on the apartheid regime in South Africa for a political science course. I remember this project and all the preparation and research involved more than any other paper, assignment or examination I’ve done because […]

Letter: Saving Playland

To the Editor, All this talk about Playland is getting weirder every day. Playland is eligible for national historic landmark recognition within the next 10 years as it approaches its 100th anniversary. It is probably the oldest, or one of the oldest, amusement parks in the United States. How will Playland Amusement Park be filled […]
