Last night the Ben Franklin Democratic Club held its annual Holiday Party. This years holiday party's theme was to remember the troops who have served, but are homeless. The club collected Health and Beauty aids such as razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and other grooming items to make a person more presentable for a job interview.
On hand were Congressman Eliot Engel, State Senators Jeff Klein and Adriano Espalliat, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, Councilman Oliver Koppell, incoming Councilman Andrew Cohen, and up to 100 others.
