On Fridays, WABC radio (in NYC) has a talk show between the hours of 10:00 – 11:00 Am. It is hosted by John Gambling and is called “Ask the Mayor.” Mayor Bloomberg takes calls from concerned listeners. The phone number is 1-800-848-WABC. A few weeks ago, I called and the screener allowed me to “Ask the Mayor.”
My question to Mayor Bloomberg was, “Are you willing to address the growing bedbug epidemic in NYC?”
As fate would have it, Mr. John Gambling, the host, piped in and said, “Mr. Mayor, my friends have/had bedbugs and they are very difficult to get rid of!!” So I am asking, especially to those who vote, to call into the show and ask the Mayor if the City has plans to help all those who are afflicted by this vampire bug.
An infestation becomes a responsibility to help others; to do whatever we can do to stop the spread. What goes around comes around. Let’s make it our business to make certain that if one is fortunate to have a successful extermination, the bug will not have the opportunity to keep “going around.” I appreciate any efforts to help stop the spread.
