Senator Gounardes is Making Improvements







No bells sound for big events in life, but they should!  If they did, they would be ringing for Senator Andrew Gounardes this weekend! 




On Saturday, Gounardes sponsored an Iftar Dinner in Bay Ridge.  Other years, there have been smaller-scale Iftar dinners hosted by a Bay Ridge business (see here or  here), but this was a ‘Bay Ridge Community Dinner’ at Owls Head Park. Gounardes served his constituents as they broke fast on May 11th.  We’ve had a large Muslim population in Bay Ridge for a long time….Why did it take so long to have an Iftar dinner for them? I’m glad we have the right person as our Senator.   Both Councilman Brannan and Senator Gounardes were thanked for the dinner – see here





On Sunday, May 12th Gournardes was with Governor Cuomo because Cuomo was signing Gournardes’ bill to put speed cameras by many schools. Senator Gounardes promised to make NYC streets safer when he campaigned in the Fall. 

Hear Senator Gounardes speak about the bill  here. Gounardes’ credited the Advocates for Safe Streets for their work.

It was also Mother’s Day and you can see his Mom couldn’t be more proud. I mean what else can you ask for than for your son to be an honest politician doing the right thing for his community and NYC?  That’s pretty rare.






Gounardes has only been in office for four months – can’t wait to see what he will tackle next!
