Next meeting of the New Visions Democratic Club:

8:00 PM - Thursday, April 10, 2008
Jewish Center of Jackson Heights
37-06 77 Street
Jackson Heights, NY

Guest Speaker
Randy Lafarge- Community Liaison,
Office of NYC Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum

Alice Fisher, Intern at the Joint Public Affairs Committee
for Older Adults (JPAC)

Truly affordable housing remains a huge problem for many people.  At this month's meeting, we'll focus on this issue and find out what is being done to make more housing available especially for our seniors.  This is an issue that "hits home," so to speak, for many of our club's members.  Mr. Lafarge will speak about the Public Advocate's Report on Senior Housing and Ms. Fisher will give her perspective on the issue.   Please come to the meeting and bring a friend.  We welcome everyone at the New Visions Democratic Club.

The New Visions Democratic Club will meet tonight, May 13, 2010....



Tonight's meeting of the New Visions Democratic Club will be quite exciting.

We'll hear from NYS Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli who is running for reelection.  He'll speak about his recent report on the contributions of immigrants to NYC's economy and will answer questions from the audience.  The comptroller will also have staff available to help you find out if you are owed any money from any state agency that you might have forgotten about or didn't know was due to you.

We'll also hear from Bryan Pu Folkes and Francisco Moya who are running for the 39th Assembly seat vacated by Jose Peralta's election to the NYS Assembly.

Next month petitioning will begin for all of the above mentioned positions and for the 13th Senate seat and for our district leaders and state committee members.  Poll workers will be given their applications at the June meeting.

So, we hope to see everyone tonight at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights, 37-06 77th Street at 8 PM.

I don't know for sure... I only repost messages they send to me.  But I think their meetings are the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights, 37-06 77th Street at 8 PM.
