"The town hall comes on the heels of Council Member Robert Holden’s call on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate allegations of grade-fixing throughout New York City public schools."

Behavior like this has no place in our city. I stand with in rooting out this type of racism against our Asian brothers and sisters.

If you experienced a power outage in Middle Village/Maspeth this morning, I've been informed that made emergency repairs that caused an outage to 1,494 customers for 15 minutes. All customers have been restored, but please contact my office with any further issues.

I'm proud of the communities of Glendale and Middle Village for fighting against this ill-advised plan for a homeless shelter at this location.

Stopped by CB5 last night to update my neighbors about grade fraud within the DOE, my legislation on vehicular music, the DHS not cooperating with my office regarding 78-16 Cooper Ave, the technology committee hearing on Next Gen 9-1-1, and more. Thanks as always for having me!

“A planned state-of-the-art digital system is at least five years away, officials conceded during a City Council hearing. Meanwhile, an interim set-up that would allow people to text emergency operators is more than a year and a half overdue.”

Before the DOE scrambled to fix a problem that it never should have allowed to happen, would you be concerned if your child used this classroom at PS 9 every day last year?

The administration's answers to our questions today seem to suggest that school lead testing records for prior years are practically non-existent. When will and take responsibility and do more to ensure the safety of our children?

Despite that fact, the administration has already proven to not provide enough resources when it comes to having children tested for elevated blood lead levels.

While the lead paint was remediated over the summer after much pressure from the City Council, there was dust and chipped paint throughout PS 9 that children who already face so many challenges in life could have been touching or putting in their mouths in years past.

As revealed a few months ago, my district contains several schools that were found to have deteriorating lead paint in classrooms, including one of the worst cases in the city at PS 9, a District 75 school for students with special needs.

We're hosting an extremely important hearing today with the Committees on Health, Housing & Buildings, Education and Public Housing on Lead Free NYC and the city's enforcement of existing lead laws.

✏️ Where is the DOE data on past years of lead paint testing in schools? ✏️ When did XRF testing begin in schools and where are those records?

Then I stopped by CB9’s board meeting and spoke to my neighbors about the importance of thyroid screening, Next Generation 9-1-1, bail reform and community jails, and the plan to close Rikers Island. Thanks for having me!

Last night I was happy to co-sponsor a life-saving thyroid screening event at Queens Borough Hall in partnership with , and Community Board 9.

I know it can be hard to make it to my office during business hours after a long day at work. That’s why we decided to have late office hours this Friday, November 15 until 7pm! We hope this gives a few more people the chance to come to us for help with city issues.

To those who don't want cops on our subways: I'll take them. I want cops on, around, all over our subways. As many as we can get. Send us the cops you don't want. We're sick of living in fear.

“Nine New York state counties — including neighboring Rockland and Dutchess counties — have all had text-to-911 since as early as 2013, so it’s kind of weird that New York City doesn’t have [it], considering we have the largest population of people with disabilities,” he said.”

“Federal prosecutors spent years getting the goods on the city Housing Authority’s systematic coverup of its failures. Holden’s entirely right to ask for a similar exposé of the school system.”
