I would like to respond to Ms. Holtzkamp's letter, in which she questioned David Zatlin's qualifications. She notes that the Assembly seat is one of importance, she has proven time and again that she is unaware that all elected positions are important.
Ms. Holztkamp's qualifications are more befitting a sitcom actress than a city representative. For example:
On one occasion when Ms. Holtzkamp sat in for the mayor, the debate became heated. The manner in which Ms. Holtzkamp controlled the situation was to screech, "I am not the mayor and do not have to listen to this!" At yet another meeting, the soundness of Caldor at the triangle was addressed; Ms. Holtzkamp was highly indignant and stated that she had worked painstakingly and explored every aspect of this project and found it to be a very sound move. Two weeks later we read that Caldor was in great financial distress. One of her greatest acting jobs was when a resident, one week before an election, stood and wanted to poll the council on their opinion on a matter that was in litigation. Ms. Holtzkamp responded by saying that the polling, in her opinion, was totally inappropriate, but she would respond with a negative on the project. This entire episode was staged to rehabilitate the democrat councilpersons, with the residents in the area of Morgans Island and Dosoris Lane. We must also take note of her position with the BID in Glen Cove, drive downtown and witness her great accomplishment there. (Qualifications, Ms. Holtzkamp? Do not even go there.)
Ms. Holtzkamp should stop acting as though she were a woman of substance in tune to the issues, she doesn't fit the part. A good part for her would be starring in Bewitched, she could snap her fingers and disappear.
