Not for sale (March 20, 2017: New York Daily News)

Manhattan: Re “De Blasio’s unstable legacy on horses” Op-Ed (March 10): Wendy Neu has buyer’s remorse. And who wouldn’t after coordinating with Steve Nislick hundreds of thousands of dollars of “contributions” directly and indirectly to the mayor. Surely she must have believed that she had purchased a ban on carriage horses, despite the absence of any evidence of abuse. However, Neu made the same mistake that so many other rich elites make — she thought her money could snuff out the voice of the people. In the end, the brave members of the City Council, who were not for sale, listened to the people and they refused to kowtow to her elitist vision. I would like to express my eternal gratitude to those Council members who remembered that workers, not elitists, made our city great. Craig Sheldon
