Pols address crowd, say they’re ‘fighting in Albany’ for constituents

Also at the RHBA meeting were Assemblymember Rory Lancman and a representative for Assemblymember Nettie Mayersohn and Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley.
Jeff Gottlieb, a representative for Senator Joseph Addabbo, said the former City Council office in Howard Beach is now a Senatorial office, and constituents’ concerns and complaints will continued to be handled. Call 718-738-1111 with any problems, he urged.
Addabbo, who sits on the Civil Service, Labor, Transportation, Aging, Veterans, and Racing and Wagering Committees, and who chairs the Elections Committee, is fighting, said Gottlieb, because “only 30 percent of lottery money goes to education.” He also noted, “We don’t want any veterans’ benefits cut.”
Mike Ricatto, a candidate in the February 24 Special Election to fill Addabbo’s seat, also addressed the crowd.
The next meeting of the RHBA will be on Wednesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. at 110-08 Jamaica Avenue. Guest speaker will be a representative from H & R Block to inform those gathered about tax tips and the new tax law. For more information, call 718-849-3759.
