Sad Commentary On Political Pork

Dear Editor,

Once again, our Rockaway Democratic representatives have let us down.

We should all move to Staten Island, for they get more than their fair share of services. Free ferry service, even though there is now a bridge; numerous express buses; a new fishing pier, just to name a few.

Talk about kicking sand in one's face.

They just received a $750,000 fish tank in the St George Ferry Terminal. We're not saying $75,000, but three quarters of a million for a fish tank.

We can't even get the correct pool for our kids to swim in, but $750,000 to watch fish swim while commuting is sad commentary on political pork.
