In September, I wrote to Manhattan Borough Commissioner Margaret Forgione asking the Department of Transportation (DOT) to address a dangerous blind spot at a traffic circle on East 10th Street, by Jacob Riis Houses. Tenant leaders have informed me that schoolchildren crossing this street were nearly hit by passing cars. This month, DOT issued a work order to install “Traffic Circle Ahead” advisory signs to remediate the problem and ensure the street is safe for pedestrians.

On October 11, 2015, B&H Photo Video workers at two warehouse sites in Bushwick and the Brooklyn Navy Yard launched an organizing drive to join United Steelworkers. In little time, a strong majority of workers had indicated their support for a union. Facing intimidation and threats of mass firings, I authored a letter with my colleagues in Hell's Kitchen (where the B&H Photo Video storefront is located), Bushwick, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard calling on B&H to voluntarily recognize the union and refrain from anti-union tactics.

Community Meeting with Senator O'Mara

In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I - Olean), AT&T and the Blue Star Mothers of New York have all teamed up with the nonprofit Cell Phones For Soldiers asking the community to help troops call home by donating cellular phones and tablets. Proceeds from the recycled devices are used to buy long distance calling cards for troops at home and abroad. Although the military landscape is ever changing, as many as 200,000 troops are serving in the United States military overseas around the world.
