Dear Editor:

I read with much sadness the news of the passing of Queens Republican Party Chairman Phil Ragusa. I met him on many occasions during a number of political campaigns I was involved with, for former Mayor Bloomberg, former state Sen. Frank Padavan and for Bob Friedrich, president of our Glen Oaks Village Co-op Association, when he ran for City Council and state Assembly.

I found Phil Ragusa most personable, honest and a man of integrity. I also found him to be concerned for the community and its residents, with ideas to make things better for all concerned. He will be truly missed for he was the voice of all we hold most dear.

God bless you, Phil, for all that you stood for, and let me also offer my heartfelt prayers for your family, who are missing you at this sad time of mourning.

Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
Glen Oaks
