money, your voice, your vote!
the first time in New York City, and only the second time ever in the
United States, you will be able to take part in your democracy
in a whole new way and directly shape the decisions that impact
your life. The 45th District, along with three other council districts
around the city, will be starting a participatory budgeting process,
and we want you to get involved!
participatory budgeting, residents of the 45th District will
directly decide how to spend at least $1 million, which I will be
allocating from my capital budget. Local residents will come
together in public meetings to discuss local priorities and design
specific infrastructure projects to address the needs of our community.
In March, a public vote will be held, and winning projects will be
funded through my budget for the 45th District.
District Committee has organized a series of neighborhood
assemblies for you to attend, learn about participatory budgeting
and have your voice heard on the issues that matter to you. Each of the
assemblies have arrangements for food, child care and entertainment. It
truly is a community affair! The list of the upcoming scheduled
assemblies are as follows:
- October 21, 2011 from
6:30-9:00 PM at Clarendon Road Church, located at 3304
- October 24, 2011 from
6:30-9:00 PM at the Tabernacle of Praise, located at 1274 Utica

Bring your family and tell your neighbors! This is the beginning of an
exciting new journey for the 45th District, and I hope we will work
side-by-side on this effort.
