To: People of Seaford, NY. You must love Rep. King because you elected him. But could you put a leash on him. I mean the man is on the tube every chance he gets. He adds nothing to good political discourse. He sounds angry ALL the time. He needs to stop trying to "get" the President and focus on his community. I beg you to do something. Thank You.
