Alone On The Dance Floor

Alone On The Dance Floor

Democratic Mayoral candidate Mark Green took part in a "Walking Tour" of the Ocean Village Housing Development on Sunday, July 22. He spent a great deal of time talking to and joking with a number of the residents in his attempt to garner votes. In the midst of these exchanges, he noted that he was very surprised that many of the invited civic and community leaders did not show up to meet with him. This is indeed quite surprising and alarming. In an election year where Rockaway can finally have its major concerns addressed, those who claim to be major leaders in the community were a no show. It’s like being at the senior prom and your date stands you up. When all is said and done, you end up traumatized and scarred for life, which exactly describes what has happened to Rockaway over the years because of apathy and poor leadership. Let’s hope that the dance card for other Mayoral candidates visiting Rockaway will be completely full.
