Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. We received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.
The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important subjects and activities. I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”
On behalf of the New York State Senate, I would like to offer my wholehearted congratulations to all of the participants in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration.
(Bronx, NY) – Senator José M. Serrano joined striking fast food workers and community members standing in solidarity to demand that fast food corporations pay their employees better wages. Highlighting that $7.25 an hour is not nearly enough to survive on, Serrano called for a livable wage that will keep pace with inflation trends.
Senator Serrano participated in an Upper West Side & Clinton Town Hall Meeting today hosted by Councilmember Gail Brewer. The meeting was an opportunity for Upper West Side attendees to interact with Elected Officials and representatives of New York City agencies in an effort to increase knowledge and transparency within Government.
