Dear Neighbor, 
 
Our summer mobile office tour is in full swing, with a stop this past week in Bayswater and many more to come. These mobile office hours allow families to voice their thoughts and concerns right in their own backyard. Please check our full schedule here and please come by to discuss an issue or just to say hello!!

As always, you can stay up to date with community news and daily updates by following me on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay Strong,

VIDEO: Fighting for Resiliency   
Together with Senator Chuck Schumer, we called on the Army Corps of Engineers to expedite the release of their draft Rockaway Reformulation Study, which will finally detail the proposal to add resiliency and protect all our waterfront communities.  We also demanded immediate public meetings to ensure that the community's requests are incorporated into the plan. Families deserve to see this study released, have their voices heard and finally see work begin!

Protecting Parking Spaces 
Everyone deserves the same access to the beach, but due to faded markings, many people with disabilities are unable to park in local parking lots. That's why I have called on the Parks Department to make improvements to the municipal lot at Beach 94th, so that all drivers can clearly see which spots are reserved for people with disabilities, and everyone in our community can access our beautiful beaches.
Safer Streets for Special Children
I have always made traffic safety a priority, so when concerned parents requested "Autistic Child Area" signs be installed around facilities that serve kids with autism, I called on the Department of Transportation to consider this new educational opportunity, and keep our families safe. I know firsthand how scary it can be to have cars speeding where our children gather, and these signs could be a great step towards making our roads safer, especially for children with special needs.
