Dyker Heights




To Sarah who was quoted in this article: I too have ulcerative colitis, like your husband. I too, need infusion treatments that cost me $8,000 every two months. Repealing the ACA is a death sentence to so many of us. It will be open season on pre existing conditions if the ACA is repealed. Dan, it's not too much to ask to see a plan before you go ahead and support repeal. Republican leadership had EIGHT YEARS to come up with one. I've come to one conclusion: you don't care enough about people like me. Shame on you.

This is a picture of Congressman's communication director, Patrick Ryan at the rally yesterday. He was outside his office all day. Looking down at his phone for 2 hours, despite heart-wrenching constituent testimonials in support of ACA being spoken in the street 10 feet away and the opportunity given him to address the crowd of constituents gathered at his door. Mr. Ryan is mistaken if this looks likes Mr. Donovan is interested in hearing from his constituents because, while it is lovely that the Congressman was visiting a school, his official schedule slated him to be in his office. We have a feeling we know why he amended his schedule.

I think your article would be remiss in not adding that the rally was sponsored by 2 grassroots organizations, Fight Back Bay Ridge and Staten Island Women who March, led by Sally Mc Mahon and myself, Lorie Honor, respectively. The collaboration is significant as we move forward together still asking congressman Donovan to hear constituent concerns from BOTH sides of the Verrazano Bridge! And while I am LOATHE to talk about crowd size, the police estimated that there were between 200-250 constituents in attendance. Not bad for a Tuesday work day, and considerably more than, "dozens" you write in the article and your pictures verify. Lorie Honor

You should really do research before posting incorrect information about how someone has passed. This really qualifies as defamation of character. Such a claim affects his family, his children and grandchildren. They should not have to read such ill informed claims of their loved one. You should be more considerate of their feelings. They just lost someone special to them and you are tainting his memory. You owe the family a retraction and apology.
