After years of putting up with disrespect from City Hall (and really, everyone else), the forgotten borough of Staten Island may be contemplating going it alone. After City Hall cut bus service for 3,000 middle schoolers, State Senator Andy Lanza recently asked,"Secession, anyone? Are we ready to talk about it now?" Lanza already attempted to introduce secession legislation in 2009, but says the Republicans need to re-take the senate for the bill to get the support it needs. He said, "Can it happen? I’m not sure. But it’s a conversation that has to be had." Perhaps they can join up with "Strong Island" and fund their government with professional GTL services.
