Change More Than Term Limits

Dear Editor,

I agree with changing the term limits. In drastic times people do drastic things. In this case, keeping on a mayor that has shown his love and commitment to New York and its people. We need to rise to this occasion and let someone who is already at the helm continue to steer the ship (NY) out of this money catastrophe. Mostly because the middle class and those below poverty level are suffering for this. We New Yorkers do trust Mayor Bloomberg. Some of the candidates, for mayor and senate, who are not experienced enough, should care more about us getting through this economy fallout. Mayor Bloomberg is seriously qualified and as in the past takes away from his own personal self, money to give back to us New Yorkers. Many think it is admirable. No offense, what it shows me is that pay cuts could and should be mandatory now more than ever to elected officials by we the USA population or by each other as well as the president, VP, cabinet, senators, Congress, Board of Ed. councils or any council.

I mean are they all willing to go into their jobs with less pay? Take away money, president, $200,000 per year, VP $150,000 per year, mayors, $50,000 per year, governor, $70,000 per year, cabinet members, $20,000

Letters per year, council members and assemblymen, $20,000. This would be across the USA, mainland and off - mandatory pay cuts. This should be enacted immediately for all the houses, congress, elected officials, all the hierarchy of this great nation who continuously tell us how much they care about us, and the future of our country. These are just examples but 25 percent cut in pay for all who ran the country, to put back into the country for the people - not highways and pork-belly projects. Let New York be the leader in this great endeavor.
