Letter: A Pushy Agenda?

With the push from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, the New York State Senate is shifting to a more left leaning progressive agenda. Who is running this state? Is it Governor Andrew Cuomo who understands that New York has major taxing problems and has pushed a more moderate agenda? Or is it the Liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio who will push every one out of New York state with his agenda?

There’s upstate and their problems and there’s Long Island with our huge problems, one size doesn’t fit all. Most of us don’t believe in late term abortions, most of us don’t believe in more taxes, and certainly most of us understand that this state is a long way from the top 10 places to live, work and retire. The mayor should take care of his area where he was elected to serve , not act like a governor, and let our representatives try to work out what’s best for us.

— Patrick Nicolosi
