Senator Smith Supportive

Dear Editor,

I saw the letter in The Wave calling for the people of the Rockaways to vote out Senator Malcolm Smith.

In Queens and certainly the Rockaways, all politics are local and the question is who has been out there fighting for the Rockaway residents?

I know that Senator Smith has been very supportive to the Volunteer Fire Departments and Ambulance Corps of the Breezy Point Community and has been instrumental in securing a significant grant for the Point Breeze Volunteer Fire Department to purchase a new fire truck to replace our 30-year-old fire truck.

Senator Smith has been very supportive of continuing free tolls on the Cross Bay Bridge for Rockaway residents and also to keep the ferry service from the Rockaway Lifeboat Station to the City.

Senator Smith has been supportive to the District and I recommend that he be reelected to continue to fight for the people of his District.
