Dear Administrator Long,

Recently you made a determination to deny New York State and Oneida County a disaster declaration for the flooding that devastated my community on July 1, 2017. At the time I called your decision “horrendous and wholly bereft of common sense.” You have once again proven me right by denying the appeal of your decision.
