Recently, I’ve learned that David Weprin has announced his intention to run for the vacant Assembly seat in the 24h Assembly District. More power to him.
David has been my City Council member for the past eight years. As the president of a cooperative, I have called upon him dozens of times to assist in problems dealing with individual shareholders ranging from senior citizen issues and education matters to issues dealing with veterans and delivery of municipal services. H
His office has addressed these issues with both a professional and sympathetic ear, keeping people informed of the progress of their inquiries and, usually, their successful outcomes.
He has also been a leader in issues dealing with coop matters as a whole assuming a leadership role in opposing the awful Intro 119 and seeking tax equity for coops and condominiums.
He has been responsive to local community needs, identifying funds for the Hollis Library, Cunningham Park and the local senior citizen centers.
When I vote for a legislator, I want someone who will fight for my interests. David has a proven record and I can’t ask for anything better than that. I will vote for David in the special election in the 24 AD and I know that all of these actively involved in the civic and community activities will do so, also.
