You Should Show Up For This

Dear Editor:

On September 28th at 12 p.m., there will be numerous rallies held by Stop FEMA Now in numerous states around the country.

Our local rally will be held at The Broad Channel American Legion Post 1404, 209 Crossbay Boulevard.

There has been a lot of planning and time and energy towards making this day successful in our fight to keep Flood Insurance premiums affordable. Many thanks to Dan Mundy for all his hard work.

Our main goal for this day is to get our message National attention. The media and our politicians have all been invited. We must have a huge turnout, this problem will hurt every person and business on our peninsula.

We must have people from Howard Beach, Broad Channel, Rockaway and the Breezy Point, Rockaway Point, and Roxbury communities.

Our goals are to lower flood insurance premiums, raise our dunes and seawalls for protection in the future. We are also looking to correct the flood maps to benefit the insured not the insurance companies, and to re-institute the Grandfather Clause (section207). These are issues that will eventually make or break our neighborhoods. Please mark your calendars for September 28th, 12 noon in Broad Channel.

Don’t count on someone else taking care of this problem for you because it will hurt all of us. For more info read The Wave, or The Rockaway Point News. I am also asking anyone who might be planning their own rally to please join us.

United we stand, divided we fall. thank you.
