Regarding the newly drawn district lines, these lines do not reflect fair and independent districts. The result of this plan will be matching excellent, current Queens State Senators against each other. This will result in losing excellent senators that were duly elected by their respective constituents.
Our community of Woodhvaen has one state senator, Honorable Joseph P. Addabbo. This is who we elected and who we choose and we are very pleased with our choice. It also has been stated that our assemblyman, Michael G. Miller, will lose part of his district.
These proposed plans will be very disruptive to our Woodhaven community and our representatives. We are very patriotic, and turn out to vote in every election and our votes and who we elect should be respected. It is heartening to know that our governor, Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, has every intention of vetoing this plan.
Our Woodhaven thanks our governor for this veto, for we veto it as well.
