Port Authority Scammers
NY Daily News - Voice of the People - January 1, 2003

Dear Editor:

Re "Port Authority's Downtown Scam" (Dec. 29):

Bronx: Kudos to the Daily News for identifying the Port Authority as a bunch of scam artists. Everything the agency does is shrouded in secrecy. The agency does one thing and says another.

While the victims' families spent a half-year begging Congress to do a proper investigation of the World Trade Center collapse, the PA was conducting its own, secret investigation. While international architects proposed new visions, the PA's secret team was doing its own thing.

Gov. Pataki should find a way to cut the head off this bistate monster. The PA was chartered to facilitate transportation. What is it doing in the real estate business? From the people who brought us building safety now we are letting them rebuild with the same building and fire code immunities that characterized their first fiasco? The PA should be dismantled, and the WTC site should be restored to New York City.
