New York Values

Dear Ted Cruz

A little birdie told me that you aspire to be President Of The United States.

Late last week, in your attempt to convince voters to vote for you, you accused Donald Trump of having New York Values.

According to you, we are too liberal, too focused on money and too focused on the media.

Let me tell you about my New York Values: honesty, integrity, hard work, persistence and inclusion.

No matter who you are, what you believe or whom you go home to, this city does not turn you away.

A century ago, my family, like millions of immigrants, came to New York looking for a better life. Was it easy to adjust to life in America?  Absolutely not. But New York and America was not called the goldene medina (the golden land) for nothing.

I am proud to call myself a life long New Yorker.

Let me tell you about New Yorkers. We are a warm, loving, compassionate people. We also have very long memories. We may forgive, but we do not forget.

While I disagree with Donald Trump on many issues, on this issue, I completely agree with him.

While no one at this point in time can predict who will take the oath of office next year, I suspect that if you continue to insult voters, there will someone else taking the oath of office.

Sincerely

A New York City voter
