independent leadership is required to
overcome present challenges
to all of our elected officials who won in the last elections! Now that
the elections are over, and economic woes grow worse, let's handle the
truth, and deal with the grim reality we face in New York City. Our
communities are facing unprecedented challenges:
the City is the highest it's been since 1993 -10.3%.
Water rates have
have increased by 40%.
MTA fares have
increased, and services reduced or cut, while public transportation
remains a major issue.
need affordable housing to stem the exodus from our state.
the City has risen over 9% since 2005 to a new high record number -
over 12,000 people.
We have 15,000
children sleeping in our City's shelters every night, while more and
more seniors are suffering.
Our veterans are
not getting the help they have earned.
are being closed, while health care insurance is sky rocketing.
are squeezing the working class out of our neighborhoods.
destroying our communities.
been denied a voice in our children's education-they are being taught
to take tests, while arts, music, physical education, class trips,
civics are unwisely being overlooked in favor of more test preparation.
parks are in a state of disrepair.
are leaving the city because they can no longer afford to live here.
families struggle to make ends meet, the City's top managerial
employees roll in $69 million in salary increases.
Our schools are
unbearably overcrowded, while school aides are being laid off.
is not getting the attention it deserves, as green jobs and
sustainability are not being adequately addressed.
is ruining our neighborhoods and overwhelming our communities with
hideous, out of character monstrosities.
Air and noise
pollution, polluted land and traffic congestion cry out for reform.
The list goes on
officials must step up to the plate to face and solve these daunting
challenges, in synergy. After all, there is no Republican, Democratic,
Conservative or Independent way to pick up the garbage, or to serve
your constituents. It is time to put aside party labels, and do the
work of the people.
