Subject: Not On My Watch




                                             May 24, 2012




      Supporter,

      The D.C. bureaucrats are at it again, and this time they attempted to weaken our defenses
      in the face of potential terrorist acts. I'm talking about plans to eliminate Brooklyn’s 24th
      National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team (WMD-CST), a critical
      unit which works with NYPD and other local first responders in the event of a terrorist
      attack on New York City.

      Well, not on my watch.

      Working with several of my colleagues in the House, I successfully proposed an
      amendment to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act to prevent the 24th, which is
      based over at Ft. Hamilton, from being eliminated. You can catch my floor speech on the
      absurd plan to eliminate this crucial unit here.

      As I told the Staten Island Advance:

      "At a time when New York City remains the number-one terror target in the nation, it is
      completely nonsensical to cut such an essential asset to our safety and security."


      I'm interested in your opinion on this issue. Please go to my Facebook page and let me
      know. The safety of Brooklyn and Staten Island is too important to be left up to faceless
      D.C. bureaucrats.

      Sincerely,
Michael Grimm
