To the Editor:
Last week I heard Brooklyn’s newest Congressman, Bob Turner, on the David Paterson radio show on WOR radio, discussing the state of our economy. I was impressed by Congressman Turner’s comments supporting our small businesses, which we have a lot of in Brooklyn, in order to grow our economy.
As a businessman, Congressman Turner was able to discuss ways to improve our economy and he clearly knew putting people back to work is a top priority this year. It seems that Brooklyn and Queens elected the right man in September to bring a new, fresh voice to Washington.
I also would like to extend kudos to Congressman Turner for choosing Bob Capano, a Bay Ridgeite who I know since his time with the 68th Precinct Little League, as his district chief of staff. Bob is widely respected and Turner picked the right person to be his top aide here.
