Thanks for the wheels

Wow, no wonder state Sen. Marty Golden (R–Bay Ridge) was re-elected. He really comes across with the goods. He is so in tune with his constituents that he knows exactly what they need when they need it. And in the nick of time, no less. The good senator was able to secure a grant of 43,000 buckeroos toward a new emergency fire rescue vehicle for the Gerrittsen Beach Volunteer Fire Department when the venerable house celebrated its 90th anniversary.

Little did they know how handy the vehicle would be on Oct. 22, just days shy of Sandy’s visit. The Gator, as it is affectionately known, assisted the fire department in all types of rescue efforts.

“I am proud to have been able to secure this grant,” our pal Marty told us. “The new vehicle will further their abilities to keep the community and the residents safe.”

When he handed over the ceremonial keys, Marty concluded, “I applaud the service of the crew members.”

Chief John Czap added his thank yous as the senator congratulated the big milestone anniversary and he said, “This is fantastic and will really help the community. Now we will have much better access to the parkland and will be able to get to areas where we could not have previously.
