Turner Is The One

Dear Editor,

Like him or not, Anthony Weiner was a nationally known politician. Agree with him or not, he was recognized as an energetic, intelligent and effective congressman. Approve of him or not, he was an important part of the Democratic majority from 2006 to 2010. With all those factors in his favor, what benefits did he bring to the voters in his district? Nationally, trillions spent for zero improvements in employment and the economy. Locally, see Gateway, the bridge tolls, the continued poor economy in Rockaway.

In contrast, David Weprin is a weak hack. His only reason for being a candidate is his family Democratic Party connection. On top of that, Democrats are now the minority party in Congress. If a Democratic Party leader, with national influence and a recognized media presence couldn’t do anything to help us, while his party was in the majority, what good is a local hack with family influence going to do?

Bob Turner is a candidate who has succeeded in life through his intelligence and hard work. He owes nothing to any political organization. He is running as a Republican for a seat in the Republican controlled Congress. When he wins, he will command respect out of proportion to his seniority for taking a “safe” seat from the Democrats. He will have real influence and a bully pulpit to promote prosperity for the country and Rockaway. It’s our choice. We can vote for a local hack from the minority party, or we can elect a Congressman who can be an important, effective part of the majority. When Plan A fails, go to Plan B.

BOB ISRAEL
