While many have enjoyed thanksgiving and look forward to the holidays and New Year with hope for better times, our local pols, regardless of Party or ideology have stepped up to the plate. We salute all for working with the legislature in Albany, the City government and the Federal government to advocate for relief, cut through red tape and deliver services to those in need, especially after the devastating hurricane.
As we enter the Christmas, Chanukah, Kwansaa season of reflection, prayer and action for the greater good, please take the time to check out the websites of our electeds for ways to help.
An example: Senator Golden, the Dyker Heights Civic Association and 68th Precinct Council have come together again for a toy drive.
Other services are being afforded by the Offices of State Senator Marty Golden, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, and Congressman Michael Grimm.
Check out their websites if you need a hand and just as importantly – if you can lend a hand. Government assistance helps, but individual efforts and contributions are what makes this country great.
