Jamaica, New York located in the borough of Queens is in a major crisis, a garbage/litter/illegal dumping crisis that our elected local leaders have either ignored, failed to address or done very little to remedy the situation. For decades this lack of leadership has turned our community into one huge dumping ground unlike anywhere else in New York City.
This blog will not only expose this quality of life issue in our community, but will also take a look at the positives of Jamaica (approximately 15 landmarks, the most in Queens) and hopefully turn a community that has been in decline for way too long and make it the shining beacon that is once was many decades ago.
My goal is to not only expose the horrendous garbage problem in the Jamaica community by revealing the culprits and incompetent elected leaders but hopefully make people appreciate the history of Jamaica, find the hidden gems and hopefully make a difference. But this is not a one man army, a community is only as strong as its people and the people are the ones who can make that difference. It is very easy to sit on the sidelines. SO STAND-UP, LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD, BE PROACTIVE……………….. AND PICK UP THE DAMN LITTER!
