31 candidates, 3,000 signatures, 0 qualified?

Is there a Republican Primary?  April 14-No, April 26-No, May 13-Yes, May 18-Yes, June 11-Some, June 17?

It is common knowledge that if you want to run for an office in the City of New York, be it as a Democrat, Conservative, Working Families or Republican, it is critically important to get the blessing of your official party county committee on the ballot.  Otherwise, proceed with caution.

Let me share our Queens County Republican story.

District Attorneys refusing to prosecute crime of prostitution

It is now a very unfortunate trend.  Just this week it was reported that Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance will no longer prosecute those charged with the crime of prostitution.  This is a dereliction of duty to say the least.  Not surprising as this has been going on for some time and no one is holding them accountable.

Hope that the Republican candidate for Governor will pledge to remove any DA that refuses to do their job as under our State home rule system the Governor has the authority to do so.

Joe Biden’s definition of a patriot

The President has a very bizarre and incorrect understanding of what constitutes patriotism.

To him, you are performing your patriotic responsibilities when you wear a mask and receive a covid vaccine.

So those who do so but show contempt for our country’s founders and the constitution are to him patriotic Americans.
