State Senator Brings her Office to Staten Islanders

Staten Island's state Sen. Diane Savino brought her office to the people today by setting up shop at the St. George Ferry Terminal.

Complete with a "Ferry Service Report Card," ferry riders who stopped by the "mobile district office" were able to fill out a survey and voice their opinions about commuter service.

At a table set up in the middle of the terminal, riders got the chance to talk with constituent caseworkers and representatives about any issues and concerns they need help with.
