Letter To Editor - What Matters To You?

WHAT REALLY MATTERS…
Respect for the Office of the President matters.  Peaceful opposition to that Office 
matters.   First Amendment Rights; “Congress shall make no law respecting an 
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the 
freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and 
to petition the government for a redress of grievances,” matters.  Honest reporting, not 
fake news, matters. A strong Military matters  Blue Lives matter.  Black Lives matter.  
Women’s Rights matter.  Love matters.  Choice matters.  Affordable Health Care matters.  
All Human Rights matter.
 
Smithtown Matters. Housing that young professionals can afford matter.  Master Plans 
matter.  Civic and community groups matter.  Sewers matter.  More parking spaces 
matter.  Economic Development matter. Jobs matter. School District consolidation 
matters.  Governmental grants matter. Paying one’s fair share of taxes matter.  Political 
Parties matter. Leadership matters.  Compromise, Cooperation, Compassion matter.  Just 
complaining about it does not.  Elections and Voting matter.  WHAT REALLY 
MATTERS TO YOU?
