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 […]

Letter: College grads are pulled, not pushed

To the Editor, I am writing in regard to your article of March 7 entitled Wealthiest towns unaffordable for young. The idea that the cost of housing in Rye is driving 20 and 30-somethings out of town is clearly another attempt by the lobby for taxpayer subsidized housing—Community Housing Innovations—to promote their agenda. The real […]

Letter: Local student requests support for DREAM

To the Editor, On Feb. 18, state Sen. George Latimer became a co-sponsor for S2378, a bill called the New York State DREAM Act. In doing so, Latimer set the example for other elected officials to follow suit. This has helped to give my community of undocumented youth a voice after years of a silent […]

Letter: Response to the deceptions at the Local Summit

To the Editor, A few clarifications about last week’s Summit. Four years ago, 2009 to 2010, there were only 59 Latino students at Mamaroneck High School, which graduated 71 percent of those students. There were 285 white students in this same class and MHS graduated 95 percent. The stated figures at the Summit four years […]

Letter: Argument against Murphy petty

To the Editor, I live in the unincorporated area of the Town of Mamaroneck and fully support Tom Murphy’s appointment to the Town Council. To those who say Murphy may not be appropriate because he is a village resident, I say this sounds like petty politics. It’s obvious from his past service to Mamaroneck that […]
