Borough Assembly Elections
By Brian Stewart

Dear Editor:

During this Assembly Election, I have heard the Assembly candidates speak about "accountability" and "listening to the community." I find it an interesting but significant point that in all the ads only one candidate, Gregory Vickrey, listed an e-mail address to which I could direct questions.

After the election, can we expect our elected officials to answer questions, invite discussion from the community, or return phone calls? Shame on us if we don't expect accountability from those we elect to work for us.
