On September 4, New York City will proceed with the 2020 Tax Lien Sale. I have written to the Mayor, Council Speaker, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Finance, and the Brooklyn Borough President expressing my concerns. However, I cannot win this fight alone. Use the links above to contact the respective officials to express your concerns about the impact that these tax lien sales will have on our community in the 37th Council District.

Community & Safety

"The start of the school year in New York City will be delayed, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday after hastily reaching a deal with union leaders who had warned it wasn’t safe to reopen buildings on Sept. 10 as originally planned.
Schools are Delayed
All students will begin a “transition and orientation” period on Sept. 16. Regular coursework will not resume for students in-person or remotely until school buildings reopen on Sept. 21. Teachers are expected to report to buildings on Sept. 8, as previously scheduled."
