Public Notice Update by Terry Ebony

Please help us Rock the Vote by picking up ballots at our Laurelton Office (234-26 Merrick Blvd in Laurelton, NY 11422) and ensuring your neighbor takes park of this historic process.


Participatory Budgeting (PB) process, residents are able to decide exactly what their tax dollars fund.

As we continue to bring this more direct form of democracy to our neighborhoods, it is imperative that we engage as many people as possible.

The proposals that I have worked on and the kids have voiced their opinions on are below and they need your help to make this happen:

~ A Sound and Projection System for Springfield Gardens Education Complex

~ A Science Lab Upgrade for P.S. 251
