Our Assembly is broken
To the Editor: After listening to last Thursday’s borough assembly meeting, I have concluded that our highest governing body is broken! Crimes against democracy have been apparent for a while, but now it’s out of hand! When four assembly members deny a fellow member the opportunity to defend himself, bells and whistles should go off in every constituent’s head and attempts to fix what’s broken should be addressed....

Flashbacks of learning to ski on the slopes of Cranmore; of skating on the neighborhood pond. Winter is not winter without snow; they go hand in hand.
