  "I would like to applaud Speaker Christine Quinn, Council Member Letitia James, Chair of Sanitation and Solid Waste Management, and the entire City Council for convening the snow removal hearings.What I saw today showed government working and engaged in the people's business. While all the questions could not be answered it was a good start to getting to the bottom of what went wrong. I will be taking a hands on approach with the next storm to assure that this never happens again."
