Message from the Councilman

As your Councilman for over 12 years, I have remained committed to improving the quality of life in District 43. It is a privilege for me to serve in the City Council and to represent this great area in the City Council. I never take my duty for granted. I am dilligent every day to be consistent in my decisions concerning the betterment of Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights and Bath Beach. 

For Fiscal Year '16, I have allocated nearly $600,000 to help fund worthy local civic groups, senior centers, schools, food pantries and education initiatives. As for capital projects in our district, I have secured $5 million with contributions from the Speaker and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams for the renovation of the public athletic and track field behind Fort Hamilton High School. In addition, several capital projects are continuing and move toward completion such as the new comfort station at Leif Ericson Park on 8th avenue and the new playground at P.S. 200 in Bath Beach.

While I am pleased with what we have accomplished thus far, there is still more work to be done and so I look forward to a productive time during my final two years in office. I want to thank you all for joining me at rallies and in my office to let me know what in our community needs to be fixed, and to show your support when I stand up for what’s right. Check back here for updates on legislation and events, and never hesitate to contact my offices with your concerns and questions.

See you around the neighborhood!
