An Absolute Disgrace

Dear Editor,

It is an absolute disgrace that Mrs. Murray, a School Crossing Guard at P.S. 114Q for 34 years has been overlooked for Grand Marshal of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Rockaway Beach.

Mrs. Murray has diligently stood in the rain, sleet, snow, bitter cold and heat to cross our children. Yet, the Queen County Parade committee organizers selected a man that resides in New Jersey with his wife and children, works in Manhattan, and oh wait! he’s a “Rockaway Beach surfer for the last 40 years.”

I don’t understand the machinations involved in the selection of a Grand Marshal. I know it shouldn’t be a popularity contest.

However, shouldn’t the Grand Marshal of The Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade reside in Queens?
