Our Fight For The Rockaway Ferry Goes On!
July 8, 2014
Although the Rockaway ferry service was not included in the final city budget, our community will not give up the fight. I am severely disappointed in Mayor de Blasio and the Economic Development Corporation for ignoring the transit needs of southern Queens and Rockaway families. Like every other borough in the city, we deserve an affordable, efficient and reliable means of transportation. The ferry has been a lifeline for our families and small businesses after the devastation caused by Sandy and it must remain permanent. I will continue to work with the community and my colleagues in government to pressure the Mayor to do the right thing and support our struggling neighborhoods. Please join our fight to provide better transit options for Southern Queens and Rockaway residents by signing this petition to continue the ferry service permanently.
