Support Staten Island Recovery: 3 Month Moratorium on Tolls

To be delivered to James Ferrara, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, President, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Mayor, NYC, and Governor Andrew Cuomo

Petition Statement

Folks shouldn't have to pay $13 to help out in the recovery process, and many can't afford to keep volunteering. In order to facilitate residents, volunteers, and workers ability to participate in the Staten Island recovery process from Hurricane Sandy, it is urgent that the Governor of New York, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg enact a three-month moratorium on tolls on the Verrazano Bridge.
There are currently 5,668 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

I'm a Brooklyn resident volunteering in Staten Island to help with the recovery process from Hurricane Sandy.

But it costs $13 per car to head over to help out! This hurts volunteers, small business owners, and residents trying to do their best to get back their feet.

A three-month moratorium on tolls would be a direct aid to the impacted communities and their volunteers. Please do this today!
