“Mark and I grew up in Huntington Station and attended Walt Whitman High School together. He has never stopped caring about our community, continually promoting revitalization and recreational facilities in our neighborhood. Mark was there for Huntington Station during Superstorm Sandy, making sure debris and trees were removed quickly and residents were safe. Keep up the good work, Mark.” – Bill DeBlasio
