Staten Island resident: ‘We have a mayor whose only concern is Manhattan’


Staten Island resident Richard Trasborg:

“I think we have a mayor whose only concern is Manhattan. We haven’t seen a whole lot of help out here. Fortunately, my wife and the neighborhood that I’m in isn’t in bad shape, but there are neighborhoods that are really decimated. It doesn’t seem to me like the mayor is doing anything about it. We need gas, we need electricity–I saw two ConEd trucks, I haven’t seen any more on Staten Island–and just nothing’s happening out here. We’re getting pretty desperate.”
