first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionDon’t believe Dems’ climate change scamKudos to The Gazette for printing David Harsanyi’s fantastic article on June 4, “Sorry, fear-mongering Dems, there’s no climate chaos.”First of all, the “climate change” hoax is one of the largest frauds ever perpetrated on the American people. Sure the climate’s been changing; it’s been doing it for thousands of years.Are we supposed to believe a bartender from Queens (A.O.C.) that the world is going to end in 12 years unless we get rid of cars, planes, cows and most people?The Dems’ new credo is “Give us all your money, stupid people,  because we know how to spend it and you don’t.”Ray WeidmanLathamBallston needs new leadership on boardMy family and I have lived in Ballston for 23 years. I’m supporting Eric Connelly, Chuck Curtiss and Peter Solberg because I believe it’s time for fresh leadership in our town, and I know these gentlemen will bring conservative principles, integrity, energy, a fresh perspective and inclusiveness in their respective roles.Ballston has been a divided town for too long. I think these three offer us an opportunity to come together and work toward a future with sustainable growth while maintaining our rural character as much as possible.Solberg was endorsed by our committee this year and Curtiss was endorsed in 2015. I find it disappointing to see them being attacked now by the party leadership, along with the negative tone of the overall campaign against them. I believe that incumbent candidates should run on their record rather than tear down their opponents. I’m disappointed that our leadership chose to decline an invitation to debate.Tim Sczepanik and Bill Goslin are nice guys, but our town has had too many lawsuits against it and too many residents who feel that their voices are not being heard. It’s my opinion that Ballston Republicans are justified in making a change this year.Jim FischerBallston SpaWould district move prom for Christians?I found the June 2 article in The Gazette (“Prom dreams spark change: Schenectady district moves prom so Muslim students can attend”) about changing the date of the prom due to it conflicting with Ramadan interesting.The article cited the Muslim faith of two teenagers who wanted to attend this year’s prom.I’m not saying it shouldn’t have happened, but would the school have changed the date for Christian students? Just wondering.Audrey SaltsmanJohnstownMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img
