Goldfeder Helps OK
Taking his experience and knowledge of dealing with a natural disaster, Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder went to Oklahoma on May 22nd to provide help after the deadly tornado ripped through Moore.
“We survived the devastation of Sandy because of the kindness of strangers from all over the country,” Goldfeder said, according to the NY Daily News. He decided to pay that kindness forward by providing help and advice to those in Oklahoma.
Goldfeder visited the Oklahoma State legislature to lend a helping hand in the tornado recovery relief effort and speak about his personal experience after Hurricane Sandy. Representing Breezy Point, Rockaway, Broad Channel and Howard Beach, almost 85 percent of Goldfeder’s district flooded or burned down during Sandy, so he had direct experience dealing with a disaster.
He went to Oklahoma City to share his story of survival and how he prepared and managed government response during the Sandy disaster and offered his experience as a guide to other elected officials in the wake of disaster.
