Out of touch?

To the editor:

On August 29th, I wrote a letter to Sen. Martucci asking him to help on an issue related to certain NY State regulations on school bus transportation.

It has been more than a week and, apart from a form response email confirming receipt of my letter, I still have yet to hear back from the Senator’s office.

What a difference from when Jen Metzger was our Senator! During her tenure I contacted her several times and her staff, without fail, personally contacted me in less than 48 hours, even during the early days of the pandemic, when everybody’s schedule had been upended and one could have forgiven a lack of timely response.

Even if they could not help, Metzger’s staff called or emailed back to learn more details about my problem. During the campaign Sen. Martucci accused Jen Metzger of being out of touch with her constituents, yet his office fails to respond to a simple letter.

I surely miss Senator Metzger!

P.S. Sen.Martucci’s staff responded after I sent the letter to the Democrat, and more than 10 days after I sent my original letter to the Senator. While they were not able to solve the problem outlined in my email, the response was very helpful in outlining other possible resolution avenues through local rather than state agencies. While I appreciate their effort I still miss the timely response and communication from Senator Metzger’s office.

You should try writing to Aileen! She doesn't write back just like Schumer, Gillibrand, Delgado and the rest of the bunch don't. Wow 10 days that's fast for these people. At least he responded and you're just 1 in 10,000 or more? Hmmm, Metzger, remember what she voted for.
