To All,

For all who know me this e-mail is not necessary. It is really for those who do not know me or are not aware of Where to Turn.

At yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Staten Island there was an ugly incident involving a parade marshal and the Young Democrats of Richmond County.

The event was documented in today’s NY Post (See article below)

Unfortunately the parade marshal has the same name as me.

I have spent the day fielding calls and getting hate messages.

I just wanted to let everyone know that where to Turn has never discriminated against any group.

We support anyone in need regardless of religion, race, sexual preference or political affiliation.

We also allow groups to post on our website free of charge even if we do not always agree with some of the opinions.

We have worked with the Young Democrats as well as many other political organizations through our program.

Unfortunately people see a name in an article and react without knowing all the facts.

This has happened before and unfortunately will probably happen again.

I just ask that people check the facts before they jump to conclusions.

Please share this with your friends.

Thanks
