I would just like to say that I am glad you took over as Editor of the Wave when you did. Rockaway has needed a strong advocate and accurate information as the community struggles to recover and rebuild after Hurricane Sandy. And you have provided that.
You've made the paper much more responsive to Rockaway's needs. You've also worked hard to bring our neighborhood issues to the attention of our elected leaders. From your meetings with various mayoral candidates to your appearance on NY1, you have made sure to keep them focused on our needs and issues. They have not always been responsive to Rockaway, but you haven't let them ignore what's going on here lately. And what's not going on. You've done an excellent job!
Thanks for all you're doing for Rockaway - if we ever do secede from the city as Rick Horan has suggested, you've got my vote as the first Mayor of Rockaway!
