I hope you and your families are doing well and in light of the Covid-19 new variants and new rules and regulations asking everyone to get vaccinated, wear a face mask while indoors and in public, to help our city beat this virus once and for all.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas as we have been sponsoring many tree lighting ceremonies in our District surrounded by carolers, Santa Claus, hot chocolate, cookies and above all the spirit of Christmas.
In the spirit of giving back and celebrating the joy of Christmas starting tomorrow we will begin a marathon toy giveaway in our neighborhoods, hospitals, school, churches and all those in need.
It was a privilege to Chair our last Committee on Small Business hearing of the year and session. We ended where we started: evaluating opportunities for the city to unshackle small businesses from red tape and usher them towards recovery. It has been an honor to champion the cause of our small businesses for the last four years. We have done a lot, between successful legislation to reduce regulation and make the business environment fairer, to holding city agencies accountable for their duty to small businesses.
Between clean ups and graffiti removals, hand sanitizer and mask giveaways, nightly meetings, budget work, legislation, case work and events, Team Gjonaj has been serving you throughout these difficult times.
