Past-Present-Future Count Down to SOTD 2017

As my team and I reflect on the past 3.5 years that we have served District 35, we are overjoyed by the many victories that we have won to strengthen and revitalize our beloved community. Over the next three weeks, we will be counting down to my Third Annual State of the District, which will feature an overview of our successes during my first term as Council Member for Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, parts of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We are not done yet, this is only just a preview of the amazing work that we have accomplished collaboratively as one community and the vision for our future. I invite you to join me on Thursday, May 18th at 6PM along with your family, friends, and neighbors at the Ingersoll Community Center located at 177 Myrtle Avenue.
