Forgotten people

| |

As our region continues to struggle for some semblance of normalcy, Mayor Michael Bloomberg seems to be focusing mostly on Manhattan with regard to cleanup efforts.

There has been tremendous damage in the Rockaways and Staten Island, and those people desperately need help right away. The mayor seems to not be able to connect with the people in the outer boroughs, and that is indeed very disconcerting.

He was elected to be the mayor of ALL of the people, not just the people in the borough of Manhattan. We need to help everyone who was affected by this severe storm.

Together, we will rise to this occasion, as we always do when faced with adversity.
