LETTER: No new gas tax

To the editor: Recently, Dan Maffei released another one of his studies full of pre-election goodies, this time detailing 15 pages of new spending on local infrastructure. I support investing in the maintenance and upgrade of our transportation systems and public infrastructure — it’s vital to our quality of life and our economy.

LETTER: Thanks to those who helped with After the Ball party

To the editor: On June 1, from midnight to 3:30 a.m., more than 300 Cicero-North Syracuse students attended the After the Ball Party at C-NS High School. This event provided our students with entertainment, refreshments and the opportunity to win numerous valuable prizes, including a car generously donated for the 25th year by Burdick Toyota. If it weren’t for the many amazing businesses, organizations and individuals who provided donations, this event designed to keep our kids safe on ball night would not be possible.

LETTER: No bench at East Syracuse Veteran’s Park?

To the editor: I am a Vietnam veteran. When I am in East Syracuse, I almost always stop at the war monument. For me, it’s time to reflect and I have met many other veterans there who served in Vietnam and Korea. But I’m wondering, why is there no bench there anymore? Even a wooden bench, like the ones around the village would be nice.

LETTER: Make tax office aware of property changes

To the editor: Are you a new property owner? Did you purchase your property in the last few months? Have you paid off your mortgage recently? Have you had a change in your name? Your tax office needs to hear from you so that we can get your taxes to you.

LETTER: Tell your senator to support expanding spay/neuter

We have some good news to share. Last week, the New York General Assembly passed AB 9487 to allow the state spay/neuter fund to include Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts. Now the bill must pass the senate before it becomes a law. Please ask your state senator to support community cats.

LETTER: Relay for Life co-chairs thank community

To the editor and the F-M community: As the co-chairs of this year’s F-M Community Relay for Life, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for so generously supporting us and the American Cancer Society in our first year of our Relay. We began this undertaking in October of 2013 when our students decided to bring Relay back to our community. With a small but dedicated group, we were able to plan a 12-hour walk, schedule a carnival, find bands to play, and, in total, see more than 1,000 people attend in one way or another to support raising funds for cancer research and prevention.

LETTER: New York’s Governor may be guilty of bribery

To the editor: Late last month, the far-left Working Families Party (WFP) nearly dumped Andrew Cuomo in favor of an insurgent liberal candidate at their party convention, but Cuomo saved himself with a last minute pact brokered by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

LETTER: Sheriff’s candidate doesn’t say how repealing SAFE will make us safer

To the editor: Jack Garafalo ("SAFE-ACT has serious flaw, won't work in the long run," June 11) wrote a very persuasive letter about how he, as a candidate for Onondaga County sheriff, would attempt to get that law overturned. In his lengthy letter, however, he failed to mention how he would make Onondaga County a safer community for its citizens.
