The Mayor is now calling for the feds to revive the Victims Compensation Fund.



Two questions for the Mayor:

Why did it take so long?

We have already suggested that you take Ken Feinberg’s advice and do just this.



Instead you decided to spend countless hours and money on lawyers to fight these claims.

Lawyers on your staff that could have been working on other issues were told to find ways to halt claims of people who you knew were in need.

Once again the victims of 9/11 were being ignored.


Why is it OK to seek Federal help with this and not accept their offer of JPAC for the search of remains?

One would have to assume that if you are now open to Federal assistance that you would be open to bringing in JPAC.

I do recall someone recently speaking about Common Sense solutions and sharing resources.

Sounds like the perfect time to back up these words.

We now have other lawmakers calling for Federal support for victims suffering from 9/11 related illnesses as well as JPAC.

It is time to put aside your pride and do what is right.

Of course there will always be those that think this will be too expensive.

The solution is also simple.

As a show of good faith to the Feds take the same lawyers you were using to halt the medical payments and have them go after all of the money improperly distributed in NYC 9/11 Small Business loans and paid to no show contracts.

An audit of the LMDC might also go a long way to show fiscal responsibility.

You should also join other NY lawmakers and demand that something be done about the illegal TSA contracts and misappropriation of Federal funds that have been revealed in numerous audits.

Since it appears that a Special Master has been appointed it appears we are well on our way to getting this done.

The victims both alive and dead deserve it.

Put It Above Ground
