Your article Aug. 5 article titled "Ramani undecided about election," about Sunder Ramani's failed quest for the state Legislature, begs the question on why he finished second in the last election, and why he will likely finish second again if he runs in November.
The victor in the in June special election, Assemblyman Mike Gatto, is a conscientious, intelligent young man, with deep roots in the community. Moreover, as many have noted, Gatto is a fiscal conservative but a social progressive.
He brings a lot of common-sense financial solutions to the table, when our state needs them most. But Gatto does not espouse any of the social or ethnic divisiveness that Ramani does, and which marked the unsuccessful campaigns for Assembly earlier this year.
