The Rockaways, Broad Channel, and Howard Beach were devastated from Superstorm Sandy. In the time since the Hurricane hit action has not been taken to fortify the area to prevent future devastation.
All plans will be devised to maintain the aesthetic and natural beauty of the area while providing maximum protection and peace of mind for the residents of the area. Residents should not have to worry about coming home to find their residences and whole neighborhoods underwater.
In Albany, I will make it a priority to bring resources to the area so we can fortify the area to prevent future flooding. Another storm is inevitable and we cannot stand by waiting for devastation to strike again.
