Senator Serrano attended a blood drive event Saturday afternoon at the Senior Center on Roosevelt Island. The Senator, joined by his family, had the opportunity to discuss island issues with residents and community leaders."This is a critical time for Roosevelt Island," he said. "I intend to work with our new governor, Eliot Spitzer, to change the way we govern this community."The event was sponsored by the New York Blood Center, the Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA), and the Roosevelt Island Community Emergency Response Team (RI CERT). It was the first of two blood drives RIRA has planned for 2007. The second will take place on Roosevelt Island Day in June.
