NOW is the time for our elected officials to step in and convince Mayor Bloomberg to include Rockaway in ferry operations. So many plans on the drawing board have been retracted because of the inability of our representatives to properly market the resources Rockaway needs as well as the ones that Rockaway can offer. Recent unfortunate events have thrust Rockaway into the international spotlight. As the saying goes, "when we are served lemons, why not make lemonade?" Many elected officials visited Rockaway and offered their pledge of support. NOW is the time for them to pay us, at a minimum, by including ferry services to Rockaway.
