I must confess I was left scratching my head when I read a letter to the editor from Alfred Aboulsaad in the Jan. 2 Leader. The first paragraphs about the need to find community and agreement at this special time of year made good sense. I too, have disagreed with some of the many letters Steve Urbanovich submits to the paper, but I fail to see how this has the slightest thing to do with the campaign of David Gordon for reelection to the City Council.
I recall some of the letters Aboulsaad submitted during the last election, denigrating Gordon at every opportunity. He has started early this time. I can only think that Aboulsaad must be in league with the build-more-and-bigger-and-neighborhoods-be-damned policy of Councilman Dave Golonski. I suspect the presence on the council of Gordon, with his common sense and refusal to run with the Golonski pack, is a threat to him. Tying his first jab to a letter completely unrelated to the issue only shows how frightened and desperate he must be.
