MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As we continue to remain vigilant regarding the renovations and tear downs in our neighborhood we also continue to search for ways to protect and preserve. Once again Senator Tony Avella has introduced his Architectural District Bill and we need to support it in many ways. I urge every member to write letters to:
Senator John J. Flanagan and Senator Jeffrey D. Klein
Leader NYS Senate 1250 Waters Place
260 Middle County Road Suite 1202
Suite 102 Bronx, NY 10461
Smithtown, NY 11787 email@example.com
Tell them who you are and ask them to support Senate Bill S1531. You can send an email or a letter but letters are better. Each letter gets logged and responded to, the more letters they get, the more attention this bill will receive. If the Senate receives 300 letters it will send a much stronger message than 30 letters. We must continue to be the squeaky wheel. Our community is incredibly unique and worth the fight! So let’s get it done! I wish you all a warm and happy spring and hope to see you at our March 22nd meeting!
