FROM ROCKAWAY UNITED TO SAVE THE FERRY-
ATTENTION EVERYONE IN
THE ROCKAWAYS, BROAD CHANNEL & BREEZY POINT!!
We need everyone to work with us to save our ferry.
As I mentioned earlier, we have to start by making phone calls and writing emails to both the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the mayor's office. We want the NYCEDC to recommend that the city include the operational costs of our ferry in the city's annual fiscal budget, to be signed off in June, and we are urging our mayor to make the final decision to approve of, and include, the ferry costs in the fiscal budget.
Here is the "script" for phone calls and emails to our contact person with the NYCEDC. You don't need to read/write this verbatim but to use it as a guide as to what you might want to say.
Note: Phone calls should be especially brief and to the point. You might get a "real person" on the other end or a menu voice mail. Either way, make your statement as clear and brief as possible
