The Rockaway Times
the Select Bus Service (SBS) plans
being formulated, whichwill take
away driving lanes along sections
of both Cross Bay Boulevard and
Woodhaven Boulevard, and re-
move several left turns…on an al-
ready overcrowded street.
“Additionally, the concept of
bus riders waiting on the narrow
islands between the service lane
and the main thoroughfare wor-
riesme.”
Another major challenge is saf-
er streets and better policing.
If he is successful in his quest
he feels there are issues he can
directly address as a State Assem-
blyman.
State taxes andbusiness regula-
tions are among those. “I’d like to
work to lower both personal and
business taxes, as well as cutting
regulations that hamper business
growth, consistently diminishing
the opportunity for more jobs
across the state.”
Zwirn saidhis experience ined-
ucation, “having taught students
in grades ranging fromkindergar-
ten to graduate school,” should
qualify him for a seat on the State
EducationCommittee. “There is a
lot to be done to improve educa-
tional services to all students.”
He would also like to see legis-
lation to end what he calls the
“the culture of corruption” in
Albany. “I have a 5-point plan I
would submit as a starting point
to create such legislation.”
Closer to home, Zwirn says,
“if you own a store or shop,
you’d like improved services
from local and state govern-
ment. And fewer knit-picking
regulations that suppress busi-
ness yet create revenues for the
government through assessed
violations.”
“The upgrades of a more vis-
ible police presence, more ef-
fective sanitation pick-up, im-
proved public transportation,
and better parking options for
shoppers, would help shop-
keepers and local residents im-
mensely.”
Why does Alan Zwirn want to
run for Assembly?
“Working together with com-
munity groups and other elect-
ed officials, I believe many of
thesechanges and improvements
can be accomplished.”
