A thank you goes out today to Councilman Joe Addabbo who showed real leadership after Mayor Bloomberg told his constituents who expressed concern about terrorism, "You can't sit there and worry about everything. Get a life."
Queens pol disputes mayor's terror remarks
"Regardless of what anyone says, a resident whose house is less than 25 feet from the pipeline is going to be very concerned by this," said Addabbo, who represents neighborhoods near JFK airport.
"My constituents, who before this had no idea where the pipeline ran, now know exactly where it runs. I've told all my constituents, if you see any suspicious activity, call in and report it," said Addabbo. "If anyone on the other end of 311 or 911 calls you a 'nervous Nelly,' I want to hear about it."
