A mayor for some

Dear Editor:

The New York Times reported in its Nov. 12 issue that Mayor Bloomberg plans on increasing school lunch fees to $2.50 from $1.50; slashing $8.3 million for libraries; and increasing fees on parking meters.

It is to be noted that Bloomberg has no plans to reduce the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars that will subsidize his ill-advised Willets Point plan. Nor does he plan to reduce subsidies that will benefit Mets billionaire owner Fred Wilpon for a shopping mall adjacent to the Mets’ stadium.

While Bloomberg is to be applauded for his philanthropic contributions as a private citizen. his current plans demonstrate once again that as mayor he has no interest in the poor, middle class and small businesses in this city.

It should make one recognize the value of term limits.
