"I've lived in Queens my entire life and never, have I seen such destruction. Destruction along with such abandonment by the very people sworn to represent us.
From the news out there currently, 80% of manhattan has had power restored. Whereas, 80% of Queens residents without power are still without power.
Rockaway, Howard beach, and Breezy Point are all in QUEENS! Just to name a few of the communities in QUEENS that have been devastated if not completely wiped out due to SANDY!
Some of our local politicians have been out there assessing and helping. Others have had their offices open on a 24 hour basis handling its constituents issues.
Local senators, assembly members, council members, and even a district leader (one who actually lives in the area he is the district leader of) have been out and about. Visible, helpful, lending a hand.
Molinaro, of Staten Island has been visible and rightfully vocal. Markowitz, of Brooklyn out there visible and vocal. Springer of Manhattan out there visible, helpful, vocal.
So my question and my concern is: If all of these Boro Presidents are out there, working for their community, their constituents. Where the hell is the Queens Boro President?
Is she ok? I hope so, if she is ok, why isn't she out there advocating for us? Why isn't she making sure that Rockaway, Howard Beach, Breezy Point, and the rest of Queens are taken care of?
If she is not ok: Where the hell is the deputy Boro president???
Either way, she and or her office, have abandoned us!"

Well, her office sent out some photos of a "tour" she allegedly made of the destruction. But she's not in any of them.
Where are Deputy Borough President Barry Grodenchick and the other candidates for borough president?
