(L-R) Pia Raymond of the Nostrand Avenue Merchants Association, NYS Senator Jesse Hamilton, ‎NYC Small Business Services Commissioner Gregg Bishop

Great meeting about the ways we can work together to create an environment where small businesses can thrive - whether though job training programs, information-sharing forums, networking events, or better government to neighborhood communication. I was happy to be able to meet with NYC Small Business Services Commissioner Gregg Bishop and Pia Raymond of the Nostrand Avenue Merchants Association. Looking forward to working together to sustain small businesses in Central Brooklyn.
