Early on my parents taught me the importance of giving back to our community. I feel to evolve we must be involved. As a long time concerned citizen the positive change I've worked to actualize will be slow to occur if I don't effectively communicate with those who are also working to help achieve it.
Below you'll find my end of the week community involvement itinerary (join in if you can):
Beginning sharply at 11am, we restart the weekly initiative for Wednesday Inner City Cleanups: Newburgh, New York beginning on Landers Street, Newburgh, NY next to the DMV. Open to public.
Thursday 7/6/17 5pm-630pm
We'll host our first Independent Party meeting located at Green Street Park, Beacon NY. We will be discussing how starting a party works essentially, introducing our local slate of candidates for our Independent Ballot Line and figuring out how we can help one another. Some light material will be distributed in order to determine what we stand for individually and collectively. Open to public.
