When Democracy Ends, Tyranny Begins

Dear Editor,

While brave United States soldiers are fighting and losing their lives in support of democracy for the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan, Harold Cornell is denying citizens of our community the right to vote for the candidate of their choice in the upcoming special election for New York City Council member.

Voting, paying taxes and service to nation are hallmarks of democracy.

Harold Cornell as president of the Rockaway Music and Arts Council receives state and federal tax exemptions. Harold Cornell, citizen, chose not to serve in the United State military.

When democracy ends, tyranny begins.

JOHN Mc HALE
