When Forces Converge

When Forces Converge

After speaking with most of the candidates that are vying for the city council seat in the 31st and 32nd district, it has become clear that many have some clear goals and ideas for the Rockaway peninsula. They all agree that transportation, economic development, education and recreational facilities are important issues that need to be addressed, and the leading candidates, Joann Ariola, Joseph Addabbo, Jr. and James Sanders, Jr., have professed that they intend to work closely with the newly elected council member from each district. We see this as a win-win situation, given the fact that the outgoing council representatives have had a strained relationship during the course of their terms. This has not helped residents from either district, and this situation has created a greater division between the two areas. Amazing things can happen when great minds, and great leaders, come together. For Rockaway’s sake, let’s hope that this is one campaign promise that will be kept.
