Release: Statement by State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. on New York City Appealing FEMA Flood Maps

Howard Beach, NY (June 30, 2015) “I believe that without federal officials altering the FEMA flood maps themselves, the city took a step in the right direction when it appealed the proposed flood maps. The planned FEMA maps could put many of my constituents in the objectionable position of paying exorbitant flood insurance premiums or making the complicated decision to elevate their home. I am hopeful that with either the city appeal, state or preferable federal action, my constituents may someday witness some relief from the stressful possibility of being in a flood zone.”

Release: Statement by State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo Jr. on Implementation of Community Policing Strategy

Howard Beach, NY (June 29, 2015) “Returning to community policing is the first step toward improving community safety and repairing the relationship between civilians and the police who bravely risk their lives to protect them. By placing the same patrol officers in the same neighborhoods every day, police and citizens will have the opportunity to build a mutual trust and work together to prevent crime and keep our city safe. As these officers become more familiar with the ins and outs of a particular neighborhood, it allows them to better serve the residents by knowing each community’s specific strengths and weaknesses.
