Letters to the Editor for Thursday, Jan. 24

first_imgWhen an after-market firm stretches these limos, it’s my understanding they never upgrade the brake systems. So the NTSB may find the limo’s brakes were, by design, inadequate for a one-mile road descent with a full load of passengers. This would hamper Mallery’s case against Hussain.That may be her real concern.  Perhaps the overriding culprit is the lack of standards for stretch limo brake systems.Dick ValeSchenectady This action on the governor’s part expresses his blatant non-concern for retired public employees. We deserve better.Governor, take a reality check and start treating retirees and seniors with dignity and due consideration.Nicholas C. BarberSchenectady Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionCulprit in limo crash may be the brakesIn reading about Schoharie County DA Susan Mallery’s objections to allowing the NTSB access to the stretch limo, I am struck by something. She claims to be concerned that the NTSB will “endanger evidence” in her criminal case against the operator, Nauman Hussain. We are quite privileged here in Schenectady. Many of the problems in the rest of the country and in other countries don’t happen here.We have our excellent police force, fire department and ambulance service to manage what are often life-and-death situations. It’s too bad that these public servants are so often underpaid. They would often be better off working at a fast-food restaurant.Besides wanting to lose weight, my resolution is to try to speak up a little more. My ideas may or may not make sense, but I can look for problems and the good things, too.Lorene HuntleySchenectady Resolve to speak up more on good, badAt my really advanced years, I’ve had time to reflect on the past year and try to think of any small ways I can make anything better.Oh how much I often wished I could just wave a magic wand over the world and make everything all right.However, I do believe we are in the end times. Many people believe this, but it isn’t something that’s discussed much in public or in the political world. It would be political suicide to bring up the topic. It should be no surprise that there are so many problems these days. God, by whatever name He is called, has promised to bring all these troubles to an end before we manage to destroy ourselves completely.On the bright side, there are also a lot of major good stories. And, as usual, the good stories don’t always make the news. Gov. Cuomo must treat retirees betterAs a retiree of Schenectady County government, I’m sorely disappointed that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has no concern or appreciation for local government retirees.The governor recently vetoed legislation giving us 30 days notice prior to modifying or replacing health insurance coverage.No notification. No engagement or time for discussion. Unilateral action by local governments is unconscionable.The number one concern of retirees who are at advanced ages is quality health care, at the time when it’s most needed. China has money, experience for wallIt seems everyone has a suggestion about building the wall on our southern border. Here’s mine: Ask China to build the wall. They have the money and the experience (the Great Wall). We all win. Frank O’ConnorRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.
