Politics aside, Carmelo is doing great things

Dear Editor: I read with interest your front page story on Carmelo Garcia and the controversy over his role as a member of the Hoboken Board of Education. I was very disappointed that you failed to recognize his role as an advocate of improving public education for our children or his service to our community as Director of Health and Human Services. Carmelo has always been an advocate of the "people" whether young or old, but also those who deserve or are in need of essential services. Mr. Garcia has always been an advocate of our children, and his passion for that cause is displayed both on the Board of Education and in Human Services. Hoboken has never been offered as much programming for our children or offered as many opportunities since Mayor Roberts appointed Carmelo to serve as a City Director. Subsequently, a member of the Board of Education, Carmelo has worked equally as hard to provide and promote cutting-edge programs in our schools. Unfortunately, politics becomes an unfortunate factor that undermines policy and performance. However, all one has to do is overlook words and focus on results to recognize the accomplishments that the Roberts' administration and Carmelo have achieved over the past four years. We are very proud to have Carmelo as a Latino leader in this community. Substance always wins over style, and I salute Carmelo Garcia for all he has given our city. Luz Marrero
