Willets A Cause For Concern

To The Editor: In regards to “Willets Point Businesses Await Resolution” (Queens Tribune, March 2-12), in a City Council in which the majority of its members qualify as mediocre, Councilmember Julissa Fererras (D-East Elmhurst) stands at the head of the class. It will be remembered she was the prime mover in the farce that not […]

Time To Embrace P-Tech

To The Editor: Last week’s Queens Tribune article, “MVB, P-Tech Co-Location Moves Forward,” quoted various elected officials lamenting the DOE’s decision to allow a promising P-Tech school to be co-located inside of Martin Van Buren High School (MVB).

Library Needs Better Resources

To The Editor: Gary Null, a long time national radio personality, did an 11-month, in-depth investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The six-hour report presented credible evidence as to who was responsible for this murder and the subsequent cover-up.

Texting and talking riders will accidently fall on the […]

Wealth Redistributed In The Wrong Direction

To The Editor: If Mr. Ed Konecnik is not careful, he will dislocate his shoulder due to his non-stop personal back slapping. Somehow his description of what to him is “Freedom” is more akin to Greedom. Mr. Konecnik is constantly decrying the redistribution of his wealth to the lazy, unmotivated, lying in their hammock smoking […]

End The Fiasco In The Park

To The Editor: In describing the Willets Point project as a “fiasco,” the Queens Tribune Editorial Board had hit the nail squarely on the head (Willets Fiasco Needs To End – Feb. 13-19).

Vision Zero Off Target?

To The Editor: De Blasio with his Vision Zero plan wants to totally eradicate traffic fatalities in the City. While he is at it, why not say he will cure cancer as well.

OP-ED: City Takes Easy Way Out

It is irresponsible to group all of New York City’s public school students into a single designation when it comes to a weather-related need to close schools. In New York City, the public schools are either all open or they are all closed. Despite the fact that a massive storm like the one we experienced today […]
