Assemblyman William Colton (D – Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, and Dyker Heights) is reminding the public that he will be hosting the Public Advocate candidate forum.
“The Public Advocate office must be the voice to protect people to fight on issues like quality education for our children, including the fight to keep SHSAT, expanding gifted programs for all high performing children and quality remedial programs for underperforming children to ensure all children will achieve their highest growth of quality education. The Public Advocate role is to speak out regarding our laws and to our elected officials advocating on such quality of issues as keeping our neighborhood clean and safe, protecting small neighborhood businesses from harassment with unjust fines and regulations, as recently seen in the storefront sign ticket blitz, fighting for affordable and safe public transit and for well maintained and affordable housing and advocating for a high quality of life for all New York City people,” Colton stated.
The Public Advocate Forum has been co-sponsored by the Aelita Club, Federation of Italian – American Organizations of Brooklyn, Ltd., 45th Assembly District Leader Ari Kagan, 47th Assembly District Leader Nancy Tong, 47th Assembly District Leader Charles Ragusa, Chinese American Social Services, United Progressive Democratic Club, United Chinese Organization of Brooklyn, Health Essential Association and many others.
Doors will be open at 6:00 pm
Press is welcome to attend and anyone who is interested to participate at the Public Advocate Candidate Forum may come to 29 Bay 25 Street on February 13, 2019, at 6:30 pm.
