I hope others are in agreement with me that the time for trash talking those who seek political office should stop.
Now it appears this practice has come to our mayoral race. In particular, a letter by Paul Schnitger ("If Quiroga wins, I hope he proves me wrong," The Daily News, Nov. 13) stating the Wharves Board of Trustees created a position for Roger Quiroga.
I had the privilege of serving on that board and can attest this is totally untrue. The port director at the time, Steve Cernak, petitioned the board for the position along with the salary requirement. I personally suggested to Roger that he seek the position. A unanimous approval by the board indicated they felt he was qualified.
Let’s all promote our favored candidate and stop trying to sling up dirt on their opponents. Enough is enough.
