We need a better Superintendent for our Parks and Recreation Dept.

George Sandas is the Superintendent of Parks and Recreation. Parks and Recreation is supposed to be a dynamic recreation program covering a wide variety of activities to Hempstead residents. Hempstead is predominantly Black. George Sandas should not be in that position. George Sandas is racist. George Sandas doesn't want to see black people succeed. George Sandas is in a position to help, but George perpetrates the same differences that keep black people in the bottom of the barrel. George Sandas lacks compassion, sincerity, empathy and a heart. I question George Sandas's so-called "leadership." God does not like ugly. The sad thing is that when you go into his office all of his employees are Black. So even the employees who helping him even keep his job are Black, but yet deep in his heart, George Sandas doesn't want see move up in the social ladder. He is an example of a symptom of the diseases that continue to infect the Black community.
