Dear Neighbor, 
When I announced my decision not to seek re-election in November, I anticipated hearing from the community. However, I could not have expected the tremendous outpouring of support and well wishes my family and I have received. I'm truly humbled by your kind words and thankful for the many strong partnerships and friendships we have built these past five years.

I look forward to our work together during this busy summer season and in the months ahead. Please feel free to call on me with any question or concern. As always, you can stay up to date with community news and daily updates by following me on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay Strong,

Lasting Protections for Jamaica Bay   
Jamaica Bay is a jewel of our community that provides so many recreational opportunities to families and serves as a buffer against storm surges. I'm proud that my last bill in the Assembly will ban the dumping of toxic materials into borrow pits at the bottom of the bay. After passing both the Senate and Assembly with overwhelming support, I now urge Governor Cuomo to sign this bill into law and protect Jamaica Bay for generations to come.

Ready, Set, Read! 
Summer is officially here and that means it's time for my annual Summer Reading Challenge! This year, we delivered 20,000 pamphlets to schools across southern Queens and Rockaway. Students can earn a special certificate by reading at least 15 minutes a day over 40 days in July and August. This will help keep their minds sharp and better prepare them for the following year. Check with your school librarian or call my office for details.
Teaching Our Children Traffic Safety
Recently joined the 4th graders at P.S. 207 in Howard Beach for the unveiling of new student-designed street signs. With the help of the city Department of Transportation, students learned how government really works and solved a problem they first brought to my attention with a letter and petitions last year. These future leaders proved that with hard work and perseverance you can accomplish great things in the community, and I was proud to be part of it!
