From SI Live:
The group hand-delivered a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- who marched in the parade -- reading, in part "...To lose Pouch Camp would mean Scouting would lose its heart and Staten Island -- and our entire city -- would lose a natural treasure."
Bloomberg, who spoke to a few supporters of the cause, said that being a Boy Scout had "changed my life," and asked why Pouch Camp was in danger. But whether the mayor would throw his weight behind the effort went unanswered.
"I'm not sure I can do anything about that; the city has a lot of other things to worry about," Bloomberg said.
