Re: “Everything we have on the Ferguson grand jury decision

It has been nearly a year since Lovely became mayor. In that year my impression of her has solidified. Every time she says or does something, this is what I think: junior high cheerleader who unexpectedly wins an election for student body president.

Re: “Anti-casino group second in lobbying spending

Casinos are not an answer...look at Atlantic City or ask Donald Trump why he closed his AC casinos and why the parent company is in bankruptcy for the second time in just a few years.

Re: “O'Brien and Funke go on the attack at first debate

The Safe Act is about school shootings...why wouldn't those who supported it talk about school shootings?

Re: “O'Brien and Funke go on the attack at first debate

Astorino vs. Cuomo. O’Brien vs. Funke. All are well known names in Rochester. Both races and all four candidates are fine examples of politics as usual. All have flooded television and radio with the most negative and misleading political ads money can buy. Also, as usual, all candidates can claim an ounce of deniability since some of those negative ads are not directly from the candidates. It is always good to have rich friends ready to play dirtier than the candidates themselves.

Every year around this time, you—yes YOU—the voter claim to be fed up with campaigns, politics and most of all, the negative political ads. But you—yes YOU—do not do anything significant to send a message to the candidates. Instead, you—yes YOU—vote the party line. Again.

When you finally reach your breaking point, you will realize you do have options. Just do not cast a vote in the races you are fed up with. Withhold your vote and see what happens. Tired of O’Brien and Funke but still want to cast a vote? Send a message with a write-in candidate of your choosing.

Tired of Astorino and Cuomo? There are other choices. Did you watch the gubernatorial debate? Did you enjoy the constant negative comments going back and forth between Astorino and Cuomo? Are you at a point where you do not know what is true and who to believe? Withhold your vote from the dysfunctional two-party status quo. Use your vote for the candidate or candidates who remain about the fray.

The Green Party’s Howie Hawkins is the only truly progressive candidate for Governor of NY. Howie Hawkins is also the only candidate against hydrofracking.

Think about it. Go you own way.

What is the better alternative to the Safe Act?

Re: “Cuomo says fracking report due by year's end

We have history to rely on to make a decision about fracking. It is clear that fracking, which would open the door to at least 30 more years of fossil fuel use, is the wrong thing to do. If we frqck, there will appear to be no need to develop clean, alternative fuel sources.
