With regard to the financially ill-advised, politically unsavory and now-delayed purchase of his friend's property in Bethpage by County Executive Edward Mangano, Deputy County Executive Ed Ward is quoted as saying, "We're buying an eyesore the community wants us to do something about" ["Delay in land sale sought," News, April 25].

There are a number of dilapidated, eyesore properties in Seaford that our community would like the county to purchase next. Where do we sign on?

Peter J. Ruffner, Seaford
