Please take the time to watch this.
I attended this meeting last evening at New Dorp High school.
The audience sat patiently for an hour listening to the chosen speakers from
FEMA to Health Department. Borough President Molinaro lost control of the
meeting when the Q & A began, THEN he lost his temper! It became an ugly
The woman in the video link was first on the mic, once Molinaro agreed to
let residents speak vs. reading questions submitted from index cards. She
was right-on-point when in mid-sentence, Molinaro turns his back to talk to
someone and she stops and says "sir I need your attention please"!
There was a point were the attendees at the "first" town hall meeting, at
New Dorp High School, broke out in unison "GET THE TRAILERS, GET THE
TRAILERS" referring to the FEMA trailers that to date have NOT been
requested by our elected officials.
On an more positive note we delivered 3 donated, indoor, propane heaters on
the way to the meeting. They are a huge hit! (one family with a 10 year old
son). Ocean Breeze families continue to live in their homes for 4 weeks now
in the wet, cold and dark.
FYI: last evening that the NY health department announced last night that
the air quality on Staten Island is the same as it was prior to the storm.
(Exactly the same comment that was made after 911).
In closing I want to thank EVERYONE for your support and donations, every
little bit make a huge difference when you have nothing!
