Foreign Policy?


Since when has the Town of North Hempstead had a foreign policy? What’s next? Are political hacks to be sent on fact-finding missions abroad and retired commissioners to be made town ambassadors rather than dumped into paid seldom-show positions
on sewer and fire commissions?

Supervisor Judi Bosworth and her cronies’ opposition to the nuclear arms control agreement with Iran that is guaranteed bythe international powers is mis­guided and inappropriate. The only reason for embracing the reactionary policies of the Netanyahu-AIPAC lobby and the Republican Party must be desire for campaign contributions from the same crowd, whipping up hysteria based on misinformation and right-wing priorities.

Perhaps, like the last town clerk, Bosworth & Co. are preparing to become Republicans?

I would urge them to reconsider and follow the leads of responsible proponents, such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Sander Levin, in backing the deal, a reasonable method of dealing with nuclear proliferation. Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as Rep. Steve Israel, ought to vigorously support it. It’s high time for them to show leadership for a change.
