From Queens Tribune:
Newly elected U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-Huntington) took steps early in his tenure to address the problem of airplane noise in northeast Queens by visiting LaGuardia’s air traffic controllers alongside several community advocates on Wednesday. Suozzi took part in conversations on flight paths, technology and noise levels.
“I look forward to working with all stakeholders to reduce aircraft and helicopter noise for the residents of Queens and along the North Shore,” said Suozzi in a statement. “Today, everyone provided valuable input and was helpful towards reaching the goal of reduced noise pollution and getting things done.”
Susan Carroll, a community advocate from Flushing who also represents Borough President Melinda Katz on the LaGuardia Committee of the New York Community Aviation Roundtable , said she was impressed by Suozzi’s quick action.
“I think it’s great that he’s already being so proactive with just a few weeks even in office,” she said. “He understands that airplane noise has become a huge problem in Queens and Nassau. I think it’s great what he’s doing.”
