It has been my pleasure to represent you in the City Council since January. Over the past nine months, my favorite moments have been the ones spent together in the community, such as inauguration, First Fridays, policy nights, cooking demonstrations at the Green Market and community events. If you have an event you would like me to attend, please send over an invitation. I will try my best to be there.
Since the New Year, we have taken great strides towards greater opportunities for all New Yorkers with:
- 50,000 universal pre-k seats, and more to come;
- Paid sick leave;
- More affordable apartments;
- $35 million in funds for the East River Esplanade;
- Steps to make streets safer through Vision Zero; and
- A stronger fight against the Marine Transfer Station.
There is more to do, but the progress is encouraging. Please contact me with any thoughts, questions, requests for assistance or ideas for a better city. Here are just a few ways you can reach me:
I look forward to working together.
As always, I am at your service.
Sincerely,Council Member Ben Kallos
