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.
April is National Social Security Month! During this special month, you can help spread the importance of financial planning by taking part in Thunderclap, a synchronized social media event to educate your networks about programs and services.
Social Security retirement benefits replace about 40 percent of pre-retirement earnings for the average worker. That’s a good foundation, but most people will also need other sources of income in retirement, such as pensions, savings, and investments. Yet nearly a third of the nation’s workers have no money at all set aside specifically for retirement, let alone enough to live comfortably. Help secure today and tomorrow. Open a my Social Security account today at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
