Post hurricane. A crippled city. With the decision for NYC to cancel the marathon, I am now very concerned about storm aftermath/distress/distraction keeping voters away from the polls in an area vital for the re-election of the President. If they can cancel the world famous marathon which was to be the Race to Recovery (“get back on our feet”) this year and benefit the area when it is so greatly needed, then a crucial global event that will impact all of our lives on this planet for years to come can be impacted and crippled. I wish the General Election to be postponed for when NY and surrounding area is back on its feet on the race to recovery.
