Letters to Editor

Consider the alternatives

To the editor: Both DC37 and the UFT are urging their members to contact the City Council to amend Section 12-126 of the Administrative Code. The proposed amendment, which does not yet have a sponsor, would weaken health insurance protections for both municipal retirees and in-service employees. 

Essential to protect pols

To the editor: In this era of violent political hostility, I can’t believe that House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s home wouldn’t have government-assigned security guards.

Crime is robbing us

To the editor: Crime is rampant in this city. It seems as though no one is safe. I personally believe that Mayor Eric Adams is doing a terrific job trying to deter crime. I voted for him. Yet I …

Hypocritical season

To the editor: I have extensively written on the hypocrisy of political talking points. One Lee Zeldin ad is a prime example. In it, he tells us “You’re smart. You know the problems in Kathy …

To the editor: In the article "UFT begins bargaining for new contract” (The Chief, Oct. 21), the paragraph “There are also concerns that increased health care costs, which have drained the Health Insurance Premium Stabilization Fund, could interfere with the city's ability to provide substantial raises" is not totally correct. 

Unions need accountability

To the editor: In September, The Chief ran a story about the Transit Workers Union opposing a bill that would ban horse carriages. Most recently, I see that many unions are siding with Mayor Eric Adams trying to get the City Council to force city retirees into a retirement plan that they don’t want. 

To the editor: During a recent interview, Bernie Sanders said that abortion is an important issue, but that Democrats are placing too much focus on it. He is right that Democrats need to also push …

Time to negotiate, Biden
