Re: Who's the asteroid, who's the star?, The Record, Sept. 16
If Mr. Wright sees himself as a visionary, he may need to have his eyes tested. While he sets his sights on big projects using our tax dollars, we are tripping over treacherous sidewalks and damaging our cars on potholes.
The boardwalk has nails protruding to such an extent that I have friends who refuse to use it any longer. Fixing the small things first worked for Rudy Giuliani in New York City, and it can work here as well.
As for Ray Pigeau (Who is this Crosty fellow?, Letters to the editor, The Record, Sept. 16), he must have his head buried in the sand.
Mr. Crosty is one of the most positive persons I have ever met. He also has an incredible amount of energy and uses a lot of it volunteering for the benefit of New West residents. He was the MC for Sapperton Days, the 12th Street Festival and the Quayside Festival. I was a volunteer for the Quayside Festival and was impressed by how hard he worked and how much he cares about his community.
Mr. Wright, who also lives on the Quay, was conspicuous by his absence that day.
