CBB Toll Protest Tuesday October 5
Democratic District Leader Lew M. Simon will hold a rally across the Cross Bay Bridge on Tuesday, October 5, at 7:00 p.m. in protest of the elimination of the resident rebate program. The program, which gave Rockaway and Broad Channel residents unlimited free access over the bridge, ended in July. He asks that anyone interested in attending contact his office at 718- 945-1216. Simon encourages people to bring their friends and family and show their outrage to this unfair toll. People are meeting in front of McDonalds at Beach 92 Street and Beach Channel Drive at approximately 6:45 p.m. They will then march over the Cross Bay Bridge roadway to Broad Channel. Wheelchairs are available if needed. Flyers can be picked up from Simon’s office at 112-20 Beach Channel Drive, opposite the Waldbaum’s shopping center.
