I am extremely disappointed with Councilman Eric Ulrich’s support of Melissa Mark-Viverito as she runs for Council speaker. The fact that he will support such an individual who has displayed contempt for our national symbol and refused to pledge allegiance to our flag until she decided to run for speaker is nothing less than disgusting.
Mr. Ulrich has done nothing for veterans since being elected. When I was County Commander, I scheduled a meeting with him to discuss the needs of veterans in Queens County. He deceitfully canceled after I traveled from Woodside to the Rockaways to meet him. I now know why. He has no clue as to what is important to the men and women who defend our great Republic. Mr. Ulrich and Ms. Mark-Viverito are unfit to represent the citizens of Queens because of their self-serving lack of patriotism and respect for our nation’s defenders.
Please let them know my comrades and I stand ready to replace them in public office.
