    Is Assemblymen Jeffries crazy? If I was him I attend the debate, especially since the congressional district lines was redrawn and made larger, the voters in the new parts of the distric may not have heard or seen him, or know of his record in the assembly.

    The voters have the right to see and hear what this candidate has to say and how he plans to do the things he says. It’s not enough to plaster the district with pamphlets, or attend a planned televised TV debate. The community at large want to see and hear him in person, especially the voters in the newly formed part of the district. The voters want to know if he would fight for them in the House of Representatives. They want to know if he will fight for all voters in the district.

    If he expects to win the Democratic party nomination and win the election he should attend the debate for his own good. Voters of all parties deserve to hear what all the candidates have to say about issues that effect the district. I was leaning toward voting him, and now with this, I may have to rethink my vote.

  • RE: McDonalds.

    I believe that old people need to re take their driving tests again. This is not acceptable. A parrallel park and lose control killing someone. No. Not acceptable.

    Anyone over 60 needs to be re tested. Most old people are terrible drivers.
