Breaking News: Man Killed After Car Hits Pole In Fiery Westchester Crash

Vista Resident Supports Douglas

This Letter to the Editor has been written in its entirety by Sven Moller of Vista, New York.

To the Editor:

I received two requests this week for campaign contributions. The first came from Peter Michaelis who wrote: " I would greatly appreciate any donation you can make - even $100, $75 or $25 would help".

The second request came from Lisa Douglas - she wrote: "I realize that money is extremely tight but could you help me, help us, We the People, by making a donation of $5?. Of course, any denomination you can make work into your budget will be greatly appreciated".

Both are candidates for the Westchester County Legislator seat to represent District 2 which covers Somers, Bedford, Mount Kisco, North Salem, Lewisboro and Pound Ridge. Both candidates state they are running to ensure fiscal responsibility.

As I read their requests something jumped off the page - Douglas realizes that money is tight and a $5 donation is all she is looking for. Michalis wanted the 'big donations' writing the words 'even $100, $75, $25 would help'. His word 'even' just doesn't sit right. If I send him $25, is that less worthy than someone who sends him $500? It seems that one of these two candidates understand fiscal responsibility - the other fails.

My cash and vote goes to Douglas. I am done with big spenders of other peoples money!
