To the Editor:

I enjoyed watching the Bayonne debates on television. It was very informative.  I learned where all the candidates stand on issues.  Mr. Zanowic had some good ideas. But I was very disappointed to hear those who say there are “gangs” in Bayonne. Groups of punks on the street corner are not gangs. Gangs are organized crime units who use murder, extortion, and muscle to keep their crime enterprises in business. I was a policeman for 28 years for the federal government. I know what gangs are, they are not in Bayonne.  Crime stats show that there were zero murders in Bayonne last year. That means there are no gangs operating in Bayonne.  I’m voting for Mayor Smith in the upcoming election. He has a plan for Bayonne.
