On August 16, 2010 there was a letter sent by five of our Long Island Congressional Representatives: Steve Isreal, Timothy Bishop, Peter King, Carolyn McCarthy and Gary Ackerman, to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the M.T.A. Mr. Jay Walder regarding lay-offs and safety issues affecting the L.I.R.R. We applaud them for standing with us regarding the issue of system safety and expect that they will continue to do so in the future until they LIRR lives up to its' motto:

"Safety is of the First Importance in the Discharge of Duties"
