Dear Editor:

I urge your readers to work closely with John Cori of the Friends of Rockaway Beach to help protect Queens residents’ lives and property and our coastlines. I support him and he needs your support too.

I believe the government did not protect our shoreline and our communities. The government refused to fund much-needed sand, jetties, seawalls and dunes for Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Please remember our fallen citizens.

I would also like to get the Major League Soccer stadium and the United States Tennis Association expansion for Rockaway. And I support improved public transit for the Woodhaven Boulevard-Cross Bay Boulevard corridor, including reopening the unused train tracks which run closely parallel to it.This would improve transportation, create more business and spread tourism to communities where it’s much needed.Thank you.
