Dear Friends:


Since I began serving as the State Senator for the 26th District this past December, I’ve focused on advocating for a State Budget and legislation that will support our communities and make New York a better, fairer place to call home. My staff and I have also been working on critical neighborhood issues, and with individual constituents to ensure they receive the services they need and deserve.


In short, we’ve been striving every day to make New York’s government work better for you.


Now we want to hear from you! Please join us for our Community Convention on Sunday, May 6th, 2:00-5:00 p.m. at Stuyvesant High School, 345 Chambers Street in Manhattan.


Whether you want to discuss protecting tenants' rights, repairing public housing, preserving our neighborhoods, supporting our seniors, preventing gun violence, reforming our election laws, or investing in resiliency, I hope you'll join the conversation! For a full list of topics, click here.


I’m proud that over the last five months, we’ve won a streamlined process for the BQE rehabilitation, allocated $250 million to make critical repairs in public housing, enacted a law prohibiting domestic abusers from having guns, guaranteed Battery Park City residents have two seats on the BPC Authority Board, and so much more. In the coming months, I’ll continue pushing for election and campaign finance reforms, even stronger gun laws like Extreme Risk Protection Orders, and other policies which will benefit our communities and all New Yorkers.


Again, I hope to see you at the Community Convention on Sunday, May 6th! If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP by clicking here, emailing, or calling 212-298-5565. For details in Spanish, click here, for Chinese click here, and for Yiddish click here.
