head shot with Team Cumbo.JPG

Dear Neighbors of the 35th District,

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE FY18 BUDGET YEAR!!! I wanted to share with each of you some of the incredible and exciting budget victories that I have been able to achieve on behalf of the 35th District.  As your Council Member, representing one of the most diverse and dynamic Districts in the Borough of Brooklyn.

I have been able to fight for an unprecedented investment of your taxpayer dollars into our schools, community-based organizations, NYCHA developments, libraries, parks and so much more!

For the past several months, I have tirelessly pursued funding that would not only provide for the needs of today, but also secure the future. After many hours of strong negotiations, in an effort to bring critical resources and opportunities to District 35, I am proud of this new budget that will ensure that the needs of our growing community are met. It signifies our city’s deeper commitment towards strengthening our communities and protecting our most vulnerable populations – youth, seniors, and immigrants. These budgetary victories will sustain the vitality of our neighborhoods.

The budget is robust and responsible, taking into account the looming threat of Federal cuts while maintaining a rigorous adherence to the needs of all New Yorkers by expanding access to key programs and services.

I am proud to announce what I was able to accomplish in this budget for my district and citywide.

Sign Up for the Central Brooklyn CSA!

12

The Central Brooklyn CSA connects the Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy Communities with the beautiful Windflower Farm in Upstate New York. Our CSA differs from others, in that we operate a tiered pricing structure. The tiered system allows for our higher income members to pay at a slightly higher rate, which then subsidizes shares for our lower income members. We also accept EBT payments for members currently utilizing the SNAP Program.  This CSA enables community members of all income levels to receive delicious, organic, and locally sourced produce at incredibly affordable rates from June-October each year.

Feel free to share the brochure and the flyer!

“Music is the art of emotions and emotions are what makes us humans. We want to keep and share our humanity and we want to keep and share our music for a more aware world.”  Eugene Blount, Abp

The Brooklyn Center for the Arts is delighted to present the return of the classical concert series, Classical Thursdays.

The series is both designed to host a high level of artistic expression and to be an educational experience, raising awareness on the value of classical music in our modern life.  Each concert features young recognized international artists and it is introduced by a pre- concert lecture held by the musicians.

Classical Thursdays take place in the fast-growing community of Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, in the beautiful setting of the Elim International Square and aims to add a valuable option to the rich cultural panorama of the Big Apple.

Starting Thursday May 4th there will be four (4) weekly appointments with classical musicians at the Brooklyn Center for the Arts, 28 Madison Street in Brooklyn.  Concerts start at 7.30 p.m. Doors open at 7.00 p.m.

We will present four (4) concerts in May:  May 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th.  The full programing for Classical Thursdays will resume in Fall 2017.

 

Ticket Price:    $5.00
