A Day to love those who Labor
By Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
Glen Oaks Village: Labor Day is upon us and it is time to be thankful for how far we have come. It is also a time to look back and think of all the fathers and mothers who worked hard long hours and who fought for decent wages and hours so they could better provide for their families.
My grandfather — as told to me by my father — worked hard long hours in the late 1890s and early 1900s and earned about $2 a day. He was a Civil War veteran. Things were so bad that my father was taken out of school in third grade at the age of 9 and had to go to work.
Truly we have come a long way due to those that paved the way to a better life for many of us today. So, this Labor Day, let’s say a prayer of thankfulness to how far we have come.

Club’s 1st Health, Wellness & Fun Fair at Alley Pond Park
When we say, “we’re not just a political club, the Queens Village Republican Club is an experience,” we mean it! We just enjoyed the experience of our club’s 1st Community Health, Wellness, and Fun Fair at Alley Pond Park on August 26th, and it was a smashing success! In the words of one of the participants: “great day, great weather, great crowd, great cause!”
Here is a handy guide to our outstanding line-up of Republican super-star candidates who will restore the lost greatness to our city, with a brief paragraph and the website for each of them: Nicole Malliotakis, Juan Carlos Polanco, Michel Faulkner, William Kregler, Joe Concannon, and Dr. Rupert Green. They have been in the news, at our meetings and rallies and you can meet most of them in person at our club meeting on September 7th.

Earlier this spring, New York City’s political leaders decided to participate in a parade that was honoring a convicted terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera. This was the last straw for me to sit out another election without giving a voice to all of us who oppose such a radical left-wing agenda.
