In response to the guest column by Norman Pappous (“‘Failure’ is a code word for ‘Democrat,’” The Daily News, June 29): Why is it always partisan with you?
Republicans aren’t geniuses or saints, any more than Democrats.
Truth is, both sides have good and bad ideas, successful and unsuccessful policies.
The two parties spend far too much time attacking the other and trying to affix blame for the condition of our country.
The best solution is for both parties to begin working with each other and support good ideas no matter which side of the aisle they come from.
Being an obstructionist or casting a negative light on the other party will accomplish nothing.
If you approach your city council position with this same lack of flexibility, you will find it hard to accomplish the goals you have for the city.
Show you can play well with others.
