Readers Write: Curran does what’s right with TR statue

The Island Now

Kudos to Nassau County Supervisor Laura Curran for being steadfast in keeping the statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the county headquarters building in Mineola.

Curran’s statement  that the statue  will ”stay right where it is” is most refreshing as an antidote to the “pandemic” of statue removals and vandalism which proliferate this country.”

It is a well-deserved defeat of all the lunatics responsible for these despicable acts which now has the National Guard protecting the monuments in Washington, D.C. What’s happening to our once great republic?

Another well-deserved kudo to Laura Curran for introducing the  “Free Speech Roadway Protection Protocol” by which all marchers/protesters will have to abide.

The regulation requires them to submit at least one day in advance for approval the intended route. Approval will require the marchers/protesters not to impede vehicular traffic, including emergency vehicles, and not to infringe on private property.

They will be given specific instructions where they will be allowed to march. Violating the regulation will result in a summons being issued.

This welcomed regulation is so unlike what went on in New York City with the approval of Mayor Bill de Blasio, allowing the marchers to shut down major roadways, such as the East River Drive and Brooklyn Bridge, preventing normal vehicular traffic, but even more important, impeding emergency vehicles, which put at risk those who might require emergency transportation to a hospital.

In some instances,  this could be a life-and-death situation. Shame on de Blasio for being so myopic and thoughtless, all for the sake of political correctness and pandering. That is another example of why he is one of the worst mayors the city ever had.
