BROOKLYN - Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a news conference today he was disappointed with the city's snow removal efforts and many Brooklyn politicians are agreeing with him.

Bloomberg spoke in front of a small crowd at F & F Hardware & Paint in Hunts Point. He said he realizes people are struggling to get to work and that he sympathizes with those who can't dig their cars out or use public transportation.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind says he thinks it's time for Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.) to call on the National Guard for help. Borough President Marty Markowitz says the city has thousands of men and women on work release from area prisons and suggests using them for help.

Elected officials say they hope City Council hearings will be held to find out what went wrong with the city's emergency-response system.
