Letter to Editor

Editor’s Reply on Klarides Sisters

Dear Mr. Stamos,

Thank you for your letter and for the valuable information on the Klarides sisters. In fact, I wrote a front-page story on Themis when she was first elected minority leader (“Themis Klarides Emerges as CT House GOP Head,” January 17, 2015).

The May 6 editorial was not intended to be an exhaustive list of all the Greek-Americans who play an important role in U.S. politics today, and the stories of others not on the list – such as the Klarides sisters – are worth telling.
We encourage all of our readers to be as proactive as you and to submit more Greek-American success stories to The National Herald so that we, in turn, can share them with the community as a whole.

To the Editor: I found it upsetting to read in the Viewpoint by Constantinos E Scaros on January 22 that he and his family “high-fived” when they tested positive for COVID.
