Rep. Bob Turner (R-NY) is one of the many residents of Breezy Point, Queens who lost their homes in a fire during the superstorm.
I have a friend in Breezy who is living there with no light and no electric. They also have a house in Belle Harbor that was flooded. ThisBelle Harbor house was a family home bought and paid for many years ago.The Breezy Point house was built by their family after a lifetime ofworking in a Cahtolic school. FEMA said they will only pay for the BreezyPoint home. My friend is a senior citizen and is in dire straits. Is thereanyone they can contact to help them?
this guy doesn't seem to have a grasp of what is going on his district or what needs to be done
