My 2017 Report Card


Dear Friends,


For the 8th year in a row, I am proud to share my annual report with you. This report details much of the work we have accomplished during the past 12 months, from investing in our parks, building new schools, increasing funding for arts and culture, making our streets safer for all, and standing up for our #QueensValues.


Over the past year, I’ve worked on numerous pieces of legislation that will make New Yorkers' lives better and fought for a fair and equitable city budget. We increased capital funding in libraries to record levels. We also invested record levels of funding yet again in our cultural institutions and organizations and invested millions of dollars in our parks, schools, streets, and public housing.


In 2017, we also fought back and resisted the Trump Administration's assault on our #QueensValues. In this borough, we value diversity and compassion, and know that our differences make us stronger. I will continue to make that message heard loud and clear in 2018 as we continue to fight for our values.


I have also worked with my colleagues on important citywide issues, including fighting to protect immigrants and tenants, implementing NYC's historic Create NYC Cultural Plan, and fighting for real progress on racial justice and criminal justice reform in our city. 


Finally, we worked hard to improve our quality of life here in Western Queens, helping tens of thousands of constituents with housing, sanitation, transportation, parks, schools, and other issues. If my staff and I can ever be of any assistance, please contact my office anytime at (718)383-9566 or email and stay connected via TwitterInstagram andFacebook.
