YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Yorktown Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2010, New Yorkers allowed one-party rule to control the Governor’s Office, the state Senate and the Assembly. The result was disastrous. From the MTA Payroll Tax to the 18-a Energy Surcharge, the immature New York City radicals had full reign over our state government. Parts of New York state are still recovering, and we just learned the MTA Payroll Tax will be used to fund part of the MTA’s capital improvement projects.
We cannot allow one-party rule to take hold again. This time they will pass the New York Is Home Act, which will give illegal immigrants the ability to vote. Don’t forget about the Dream Act, which will use taxpayer money to pay for illegals to go to college.
These policies aren’t just foolish; they’re dangerous and will become law if we’re not careful. We must protect the Republican majority in the state Senate, and the first step in doing that is by electing Terrence Murphy. Unlike his opponent, Terrence Murphy has a record we can count on. He’s cut taxes, created jobs and fought for our environment. Terrence Murphy will bring his experience and success to Albany and protect our families from the dangerous pieces of New York City legislation that will destroy New York.
Sincerely, Marianne Violante
