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!

Statement From Councilman Eric Ulrich on the Resignation of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton
"Commissioner Bratton's departure could not have happened at a worse time. Morale in the police department is at an all-time low and the majority of New Yorkers simply don't have confidence in Mayor de Blasio's ability to lead our city. Bill Bratton brought common sense and stability to an otherwise dysfunctional administration. He understood the importance of building consensus and was one of the few remaining administration officials keeping it all together. Quite frankly, I'm surprised he lasted this long."
