Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!

In a move which defines true bipartisanship – and is emblematic of how unifiedRockaway elected officials have become – Democratic Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder has received the endorsement of Republican City Councilman Eric Ulrich.
At a fundraiser for Goldfeder on Tuesday night Ulrich threw his backing behind the Assemblyman, according to reports.
It is also reported that the GOP will ask for a waiver to include Goldfeder on itsballot line.
“I welcome the support and endorsement of each group that feels I am doing a good job on behalf of the community, including Councilman Ulrich," Goldfeder said in an email to The Wave on Thursday.
As to how any GOP endorsement affects him he said, "I am a Democrat and this endorsement does not change that. I will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of every family I represent and continue to deliver, especially for those still recovering from Sandy. The bipartisan support for my campaign is a testament to my hard work and dedication to the people I represent."
The primary for state and local officials is September 9 and the general election is November 4.
