Readers Write: Markowitz fails to practice the tolerance he preaches

“To scare or not to scare?” that was the question for the incumbents’ campaign members to decide, Steven Markowitz advised on June 11, 2015, five days prior to the Village of Great Neck mayoral elections (Source: Great Neck News, June 14 2019 issue, page 22, Dr. Carl Abraham).

Markowitz, the current chairman of the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center of Nassau County, had sent a campaign e-mail to the campaign members of the incumbent mayor of Village of Great Neck In 2015. “I think the callers should tailor the script according to whom they’re talking. Have no reluctance to tell people that you know that this election is about an attempt by right wing Orthodox groups to take over the village. Most people are unaware and are generally apathetic but not when you scare them a little,” was the message Markowitz emailed.

The message is at odds with what Markowitz is commissioned to promote, “tolerance.”  

Apparently, the Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center of Nassau County needs a new chairperson, someone with a better judgment on what constitutes tolerance.
