Statement from Senator Eric Adams on the passing of Rep. Major Owens

Senator Adams states:   "Few people have positively affected the lives of Brooklynites as greatly as Rep. Major Owens. Throughout his long career of public service, Rep. Owens fought harder than anyone for our working families, and always with a first thought toward who needed his help – and our help – the most. All of Brooklyn owes him a debt of gratitude. Personally, I am grateful for his friendship and the high standard as a government representative he set for me and other officials. He will be missed—but his legacy will continue on as long as we in government follow his example, and always keep those in need in our hearts."

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month  Fall is finally upon us, as the falling leaves and the falling temperatures constantly remind us. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge all of the women in my community, and implore them to take the time to take care of themselves. As October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I wish to take this time to remind you all how important it is to schedule a yearly mammogram. With breast cancer rates on the rise in recent decades, it is recommended that a clinical breast exam by a trained medical professional begin at age 20 and be done a minimum of every three years until the age of 40; women over 40 should undergo breast exams every year. Breast cancer can be treated effectively when detected early.
