LET’S WORK TOGETHER.
With the New York State Senate leadership, 32 Democrats to 31 Republicans, finally
decided, it my hope that the United States Congress (Senate and House of
Representatives,) with its Republican majority, follows the initiatives of the NY Senate’s
Democratic majority and works together for the good of its constituency and not just its
Party’s self-interest. Cooperation, Compromise and Compassion should be their mantra.
Rather than just complaining about the other side, political party leaders should insist that
they work together for the all the people rather than blaming each other. Elected officials,
including members in County Legislatures and Town Halls, must tone down the rhetoric
and instead talk about what is their vision, mission and future plans. Rather than being so
critical, they should STAND UP and LEAD.
