I hope you and your families are continuing to do well as we are nearing the end of another month.
On October 28th the Albanian, Bosnian and Croatian Communities came together to denounce the unpunished Serbian war crimes and rape as a weapon of war in a Rally in NYC. Thank you to the survivors, elected officials, human rights groups as well as US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Congress-members Ritchie Torres, Adriano Espaillat, Lee Zeldin, Joe Morrelle, Dina Titus, Gregory Meeks and William Keating for listening to the survivors and committing to fight until justice is served.
As Chair of the Committee on Small Business, this morning I held an oversight hearing to explore the impact that the Key to NYC vaccine mandate has had on small businesses and how going forward the City must be more carefully attuned to our already-struggling small businesses.
Due to noise complaints in the community I was glad to join the NYPD 49th Precinct Community Council Meeting where we heard from constituents and the Precinct on what they have been doing and how to address this issue in the future.
As every year I am humbled to sponsor the Veteran’s Breakfast kicking off the 37th Annual Bronx Veterans Day on November 14th 2021.
We are looking forward to celebrate Halloween in the District with many children and families in Morris Park, Westchester Square and City Island.
