Welcome Back to School

Happy First Day of School!

I want to welcome all of you to a new season of exploration, imagination, and knowledge.

Education is such an integral part of our lives. Every lesson is a journey and an opportunity to discover our potential.

Although the coursework and schedule may be challenging at times, you must never allow the fear of failure to define who you are or diminish the greatness that is within you.

Statement on Eid al-Adha

Today, Muslims – locally and globally – are observing Eid al-Adha is remembrance of Ibrahim’s test of faith, obedience, and willingness to sacrifice his son.

As you commemorate the Festival of Sacrifice amongst family and friends, may we come together to reflect on the importance of selflessness and caring for the needs of others in our community.

As always, I am honored and proud to stand in solidarity with the Muslim community in district 45 and throughout the City of New York.
