Oceanside Letters to the Editor, Week of Nov. 22
(Page 2 of 2)
While not nearly all-inclusive, here are some particularly noteworthy examples of dedication that deserve our thanks: the chiefs and members of our fire departments, our auxiliary police, the dedicated workers of county and village departments of public works, Town of Hempstead sanitation and highway departments, the officers of the Nassau County Police 1st and 4th Precincts, the rank-and-file workers of LIPA who helped clear the trees and restored the power (while LIPA’s management proved itself inept and dysfunctional, the rank-and-file workers did a great job under horrible conditions), and of course the electrical workers who traveled from around the country to assist us in our hour of need, our community’s houses of worship and other not-for-profit agencies that were organizing relief efforts from virtually the moment that Sandy pushed across Long Island.
Our community was knocked down, but not out, by Sandy. Working together, as neighbors and friends, we will be back better and stronger than ever before. I remain dedicated to seeing this through, in order to make things right. Feel free to contact me at (516) 812-3200 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can aid you, your family or neighbors.
