New York socialist and climate-change activist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is adept at making national political waves and headlines, but "her heart is not in the Bronx," as she is proving to do little for her actual constituents, according to the N.Y. Post.
"I thought AOC would be our savior, but that's not the case," Roxanne Delgado, 40, who has sought assistance in saving an animal shelter and cleaning up parks in the district, told the Post.
Delgado has been seeking her congresswoman's help, resorting to Twitter to try to contact her:
"@errollouis @JuanMaBenitez Can someone ask @aoc to please have a contact for constituents services. NO one working in #biaggi or #gillibrand office on her behalf. NO email or contact on @AOC's page except DC number which has full #voicemail and no one picks up. @nypost"
Anthony Vitaliano, 78, has also sought Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's ear in her district, looking for help with postal service and graffiti concerns.
"She has to address these local issues," Vitaliano, a former police officer, told the Post. "Her district is everywhere else in the US. Her heart is not in the Bronx."
Former Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., who was upset by AOC in the November election, was much more attentive to the constituents, sending a representative to community board meetings, according to Vitaliano.
"Tommy cared about us," Vitaliano told the Post.
Making matters worse, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has yet to set up an office in her district, and her deputy district director Naureen Akhter claims she is having difficulty finding space, according to the Post.
