People at community meetings care

An open letter to City Councilman Peter Koo (D-Flushing):

I was at the 109th Precinct Community Council meeting Feb. 8 and I was appalled when you spoke from the podium and told members of the community to stop complaining about Flushing.

You told us to stop complaining about the dirty streets and the foreign language signage, and you went so far as to say that 99 percent of those signs are in English. The only reason I did not stand up and complain was because you had just shamed the audience about complaining.

Well, I have had some time to think about it and all I can say is shame on you. For people to leave the comforts of their home on a cold, snowy night and attend a meeting at the 109th Precinct, you better believe they care about Flushing.

In case you have not been informed, that is what these meetings are for: to exchange information, complain, compliment and communicate with the people of the community.

You have no right to tell any of us not to complain. As long as I live I will complain, compliment, help and care.

Janet McCreesh
