Second Congressional District
My office staff has just about
recovered from totaling the r e sults
of my annual questionnaire.
Let no one say that the residents
of the Second Congressional District
don't care about how their
government is run. I've got a
record 14,000 returns on my
questionnaire which say that they
do care— they care very much.
It must also be said that these
concerned Long Island residents
disagree with administration policy
on almost every basic point.
For example, they want the federal
budget deficit to be cut by
cutting back on federal operations.
The administration has
continually expanded the powers
and the programs of the federal
government. They want urban
unrest dealt with through the involvement
of private industry and
through beefing up police forces.
This administration has pressed
continually for more federal poverty
spending and has attempted
to reason with rioters.
Our residents want to ease
pressure on the American Dollar
by reducing non- military
foreign aid. Congress is in the
process of doing just that against
fierce opposition from the President.
This questionnaire was prepared
arid the responses tabulated
by students at two of our
local universities. The results
are, I believe, very indicative of
the concerns and desires of suburban
New Yorkers. The comments
which many of the respondents
included with their answers
were indicative of a deep concern
over the directions which our national
policy are taking and a deep
disagreement with the outgoing
administration. Here are the
questions which we asked and the
answers, by percentage.

should be— Prosecuted more
vigorously than it is at present

Question 4: The anticipated
deficit in the Federal budget
should bee— Eliminated by r e ducing
