Taking stock of all that Sandy stole
(Page 3 of 3)
I kept telling myself that this wouldn’t be the end. We’d buy a new treadmill. We would run again. There would be a new cross-country season. My son would start his track club. No storm would defeat us.

Still, I hate the smell of Hurricane Sandy. Across the South Shore, it remains in the air to this day.

Everyone, please write Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray at katemurray@tohmail.org and ask her to donate 75% of the General Services Postage budget (of $2.4 million dollars) to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, or JUST FORWARD THIS message to katemurray@tohmail.org.

Kate Murray currently sends out about 25 mailings per year. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nzq67LIQ3dw for more information about Kate's mailings.

Ask her to give up some of her mailings to help the residents of the Town of Hempstead that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

Instead of cutting down trees to make paper for mailings, the Town of Hempstead should use that wood to make houses for the people that lost theirs. Please forward this message to everyone you know.

Thanks,

Felix Procacci
