Re "Moderate Dems court business" (The Public Eye, April 27): The name of my political party is the Democratic Party, not the Democrat Party. The chart shows two parties in the seating chart of the State Assembly house, Democrat and Republican.

I've listened for years while people contemptuous of the things my political party stands for call it the Democrat Party because they couldn't stand to use the term democratic when referring to the party. Now I see with displeasure that you've picked up their language use. Their language use is their business. Please do not adopt their slur against my party.
