Sound Off To The Editor

Letters: In addition to having proven himself to be a man of integrity and fine character, Councilman Deutsch is an excellent public servant who has worked hard and done much good for our community. One issue that he, in concert with his colleague, Councilman Treyger, has committed himself to, is preserving a true wood Boardwalk and having appropriate and timely maintenance be performed so that it is safe for people to enjoy. Thus, I was pleased to read, in the article entitled” Brighton Beach Boardwalk Repairs,” that he was able to “put a lot of pressure on the Parks Department, and ... they came out to this part of the Boardwalk to do these much needed renovations.” Comment
Canarsie: More like “Reject Bus Service.” Comment
