Avella gets her vote

I’ve been a Queens resident for 35 years and ever since Tony Avella became my state senator, I have seen dramatic improvements in our parks and school systems.

Tony has been able to allocate $1.5 million to schools for critically needed renovations and $705,000 to after-school programs. This allows every school in the district to receive extra funding and maintain an after-school program.

P.S. 26 used their funding to renovate a run-down auditorium.  Overall, Tony has allocated $1.5 million to parks in our district in Queens alone. To name a few, this includes $450,000 to Little Bay Park, $275,000 to Dermody Triangle Park and $450,000 to Glen Oaks Park.

On top of all of this, Tony fought tirelessly to obtain more parkland for Udall Cove Park. Facts are facts: Tony has delivered for our community and is also a strong advocate for issues affecting animals.

This is why I will be voting for Tony Avella in the upcoming election.
