This is the last week of our campaign to take back the Country but right now my focus is seeing to clean up and restoration of services to our beloved community which is suffering in the aftermath of this historic and terrible storm.
Our waterfront communities have been completely devastated, power remains out for millions and there are many public safety concerns and issues with clearing debris, downed powerlines, water quality and supply and the dangers posed by damaged cars and structures.
Many of our citizens are in shelters and as the days pass and power is not restored the risk of injury to our house bound and elderly neighbors increases.
Fortunately, New Yorkers are extremely resilient and our community ties are so strong that we will all come together to do what needs to be done to clean and clear our neighborhoods, restore power and services, and care for those in need.
I have visited several shelters yesterday and today and my heart is lifted by how many are ready to lend a hand to help their neighbors. We pray that God gives us continued strength and patience to endure these challenging times.
God Bless You and God Bless Our Great Country.
Sincerely, Fran Becker
