“Yes, I’m going to vote. It’s not because I believe in the elected officials. They always make promises they know in their heart they can’t keep. I do my part as a citizen to vote. That’s what I’m supposed to do.” –Miriam Rodriguez, East New York “Yes, I’m going to vote. It’s not because I believe in the elected officials.

“I don’t vote, because they talk a lot of good stuff – and don’t fulfill their promises. So, yes I’m fed up, especially because I’m on public assistance – and they don’t do anything for us. It’s the kids who suffer. We need that money.” –Maribel Mercado, Crown Heights “I don’t vote, because they talk a lot of good stuff – and don’t fulfill their promises.

“I will vote on Tuesday for smaller government libertarian. I don’t believe in the elected officials. They just want money. And America is tanking, going down the drain, because of it. The elected officials today are not like our forefathers.” –Edwin Gonzalez, Williamsburg “I will vote on Tuesday for smaller government libertarian. I don’t believe in the elected officials.
