Why would The Frederick Douglass Foundation of New York ask you to consider voting for a Republican in the 138th District Assembly Race?
Peterson A. Vazquez is running for NY State Assembly in the 138th District as a conservative Republican. Peterson’s parents came to Rochester in the 1960’s from Puerto Rico in hopes of a better opportunity for their kids. Peter- son, the youngest of five children, attended Rochester City Schools, and after getting his GED, he went on to earn a Bachelors in Business and a Masters in Strategic Leadership from Roberts Wesleyan College. Peterson is a veteran of the U.S. Army, having joined the Army at age 17.
He served in the reserves for eight years and was on active duty for six years.
While he’d been a Republican his whole life, even as many of his friends and family were Democrats, when he came back to Rochester from military duty in 2003, he noticed that the city, which is completely run by the Democrat Party, was actually worse than it was before he’d left. And today, it’s even worse in his eyes. We at the Frederick Douglass Foundation agree. What have decades of poor leadership under the Democrats – who can take the inner-city vote for granted, while the Republicans don’t bother to even try and reach out – gotten us? – Political complacency and a city full of voters who are taken for granted, even as they’re finding it harder and harder to raise and maintain their families in this ever-changing world.
Peterson Vazquez would like folks in the inner city to give him a shot, and so would we at the Foundation. He has a new outlook on lingering problems.
He will not financially benefit from the killing of inner-city babies in the womb
As a Republican, Peterson will not profit from the abortion mills that are put directly in the inner city so that minorities will do the government system a favor and kill their future generations. As a Christian, Peterson Vazquez is pro-life. He does not believe that God granted us a choice to choose death over the miracle of life. He does not want or need the money that those, who facilitate death, give to politicians who encourage their dark arts. Nor would he feel comfortable around a party that convinces so many minorities to kill their babies without telling them about all of the consequences of doing so. These include STDs, cancer, infertility, depression and loss of self-confidence, to name a few. Instead of telling people to repress and forget about these issues by denying that they even exist, Vazquez will encourage those in need of help with these problems to actually get help. There are religious outreach centers throughout the city doing the work that the government denies even needs to be done.
That brings us to another reason we recommend that you take a serious look at Mr. Vazquez. He realizes the importance of education. ………

Barely 45.5% of Rochester City students actually graduate on time, making Rochester one of the worst school systems in the country. He has ideas. Vazquez is aware that many of these graduates are actually functionally illiterate. Frederick Douglass once said, “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave.” Al- luding to the view, shared by Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass, that the slaveholders wanted their slaves illiterate, Vazquez says, “Illiterate people are easier to manipulate with social programs, and social programs are then used to keep the minority population suppressed.”
He says, “Education is the solution to all the issues that we talk about. It’s hard to get a job when you can’t read or understand the application. Schools should focus on education. They should be concentrating on the fundamentals – reading, writing, math and science.” Like the Frederick Douglass Foundation, Vazquez disagrees with the Democrat Party’s installation of Planned Parenthood as the source of sexual education and distribution of condoms and other objects to children as young as 12. He believes that the best way to keep children from having sex is abstinence education. “Giving condoms to children in school creates a curiosity that may not have been there before.”
As far as the Rochester City School District’s recent vast expansion of it’s total emersion form of sexual education for children who are graduating functionally illiterate because the school system considers sexual education more important than actual education, Vazquez says, “Parents are not always on the same page as those teaching sexuality, and because of that, parents lose.”
And as far as these vast programs devised by the city Democrats that push children, as young as 12, to consider their sexuality and the experimentation of homosexuality, Vazquez says:
“Children should be taught to respect each other as they are. However, we do not have schools teach children that it’s all right to be black or Latino. Why are they teaching them that it’s all right to be gay? When only about 45% of Rochester students are graduating and many are functionally illiterate, why are we teaching sexuality instead of reading and writing?”
Another issue of Mr. Vazquez’s concern is that the City of Rochester spends more money per stu- dent (many thousands of dollars more a year) than is spent on students in the rural school systems. At the same time, in the rural school systems, the graduation and literacy rates are much higher, especially for minority students. The Rochester City School district gets additional funds from the Federal government that the rural schools don’t get, and this is at a time when Governor Cuomo is taking money from the rural schools and putting it into the big city school systems that are already failing even though they already get more dollars. Furthermore, for the students that would like to learn a trade, there are no BOCES programs in the Rochester City Schools. Vazquez asks,
“If the money is NOT reaching the children, where is the money going?”
We at the Frederick Douglass Foundation would like to know that answer as well, but members of the Democrat Party, who control that money, aren’t interested in telling us about this. They’ve already got the inner-city vote locked up, and they feel that they don’t have to answer to anyone asking inconvenient questions.
If you’re sick of being taken for granted by Democrats who think you’re too dumb and illiterate to realize it might make sense to vote against them, then please consider giving Peterson Vazquez a shot. We at the Frederick Douglass Foundation of New York wholeheartedly believe that this self-made business- man will seek out the answers that will benefit the people rather than the few who are running this city into the ground.
