We, the people, need leaders who are willing to stand up for the citizens they represent and lie down in front of an earth-moving machine when the government, local, state, or federal, seeks to take a portion of Flushing-Meadow Park or Willets Point under some misguided notion of “eminent domain.” We do not need leaders who pander to developers to have their picture taken when the ground is broken. That is not leadership; it is sellout. Individual rights must be restored and both the private and public property of the citizens of New York must never be allowed to be taken for any private purpose, period. As I said in my first letter, I will do all to awaken the Patrick Henry in each of my fellow citizens so that they will remember how you violated the will of the people four years ago and send you packing in November. And if you happen to win, you shall remain imposters.
William J. Cariello III
