Time for New Leaders

Dear Editor,

It is my understanding that at the last Community Board meeting, community board member and President (for Life?) of Arverne Civic Association, Steve Cooper made a comment that was racist and sexist about Section 8 recipients living in Rockaway.

While it is not at all surprising, it is yet another revelation about how those who are in positions of leadership oftentimes hold stereotypical and condescending views of those whom they are supposed to be serving.

With Rockaway changing the way it is (and many feel for the better), maybe it's time for new leaders with new visions and new voices.

Einstein said, "The problems of the world today cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them in the first place."
