Letters to the Editor: Election 2018: Support for Skoufis

August 01, 2018

 Dear Editor,

For those who have not, I urge you to read the recent column by former Republican State Senate candidate, Orange County Legislator Mike Anagnostakis, about current Republican candidate Tom Basile. I have always heard that Mr. Anagnostakis is well respected across all party lines, and I think his views on Tom Basile are very telling and important for ALL voters to hear.

Mr. Anagnostakis calls his Republican counterpart a "an extremist, self-promoting, dishonest individual; a status-seeking important politician wannabe." He also highlights his record of choosing the political support of religious groups in Rockland over the public education of local students. He also references his previous work as a lobbyist working to divert public school funding to private New York City Charter Schools.

Now, these same entities, in partnership with the corrupt Albany political machine, are bolstering Tom Basile's self-serving campaign. This is scary stuff.

Although Mr. Anagnostakis was forced from the race by party bosses from the most extreme wing of the Republican party, we fortunately have the choice to voice for James Skoufis for State Senate. Skoufis has a record of being an independent fighter for all his constituents during his time in the Assembly. He has also been a fierce advocate for our local students, parents and teachers.

Thank you,


Audra L. Ludlow
