November Newsletter

November 03, 2017

November is a great time to reflect on what we’re thankful for. As we approach the close of the year and the coming legislative session, I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to hear from so many of you about how we can improve our community for everyone. In the PDF above, you can find our newsletter for November, which features some information about what we've been up to, and our upcoming events, including: 

Shred Day
Saturday, November 11 | 11am-3pm
106th between Columbus and Amsterdam
I’m partnering with Assemblymember O’Donnell’s office to provide a location that you can safely and securely shred documents. To RSVP or to learn more, call Neil Reilly at 212.222.7315 or email him at nreilly@nysenate.gov

HDFC Forum 
Wednesday, November 15 | 6:30pm
163 West 125th Street, 2nd Floor | New York, NY 10027 
HDFCs represent an invaluable part of our affordable housing stock. At this event I invite you to discuss practical plans to help distressed HDFCs in the short term, and brainstorm about long term goals for affordable home ownership in the city. To RSVP or to learn more, call Neil Reilly at 212.222.7315 or email him at nreilly@nysenate.gov

West Side Town Hall 
Thursday, November 30 | 6:30pm
Red Oak - 135 West 106th St | New York, NY 10025
I want to hear from you! Join me to hear about my legislative priorities, and to ask questions about how I can fight for you in Albany. To RSVP call Neil Reilly at 212.222.7315 or email him at nreilly@nysenate.gov.  

Volunteer Awards 
Do you know someone who should be honored for a lifetime of outstanding community service? In December, I want to celebrate the everyday people who hold our communities together, often without getting the credit they deserve. To nominate a friend, call Shana Harmongoff at 212.222.7315 or email her at harmongo@nysenate.gov before November 30. 

Election Day! Tuesday, November 7 
Make your voices heard! Vote on Tuesday November 7. To find your poll site visit nyc.pollsitelocator.com or call the NYC Board of Elections at 212.487.5800. In addition to the city candidates you will get to vote for, there will be three important questions on the back of your ballot. The first of these is a vote on whether or not New York State should hold a constitutional convention. I believe that a convention would risk the protections for education, social welfare, housing, conservation, the right to organize, and public pensions that our state constitution includes, as expensive delegate races would likely be won by insiders with connections to wealthy special interests.
