Local Says de Blasio Gets It



Arverne By The Sea resident Edwin Williams said he’s known Bill de Blasio from when he lived in Park Slope before moving to Rockaway. He met the new mayor at the inauguration and spoke to him about the need for more schools, a hospital, the boardwalk and economic development. Williams said “The mayor’s tone and look in his eyes were the same as they were 13 years ago and he knows our pain and our needs and says he will not forget Rockaway. Let’s give him a chance!” Arverne By The Sea resident Edwin Williams said he’s known Bill de Blasio from when he lived in Park Slope before moving to Rockaway.
