POST-SANDY RALLY & FAIR

Paul Newell

Democratic District Leader, 65th Assembly District


Dear Lucas,

I just wanted to give you a heads up about two important events related to our communities' continued recovery form superstorm Sandy. Details are below.

1) Friday and Saturday, December 7th and 8th, join us forRally Downtown, a two-day effort to reboot Lower Manhattan and the Lower East Side's small businesses – many of which have taken a huge hit from the storm. We'll be encouraged to shop, eat, drink and attend events across Lower Manhattan. Tomorrow, Friday, December 7th, they'll be hosting a Rally Downtown Scavenger Hunt. On Saturday, December 8th, there will be the Rally Downtown Food Crawl – a tour through some of Lower Manhattan's most fantastic eats.

For more info or to RSVP, go to: http://www.rallydowntown.org/

2) Our State Senator, Daniel Squadron, is hosting New York After Sandy: Resource Fair and Community Conversationthis Sunday, December 9th. There are actually two events, one in Lower Manhattan and one in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

For residents and businesses in need, he is bringing together representatives from city, state, and federal agencies, utility companies, volunteer groups, and others who can help in Sandy's aftermath. From disaster assistance (which has December 31st deadlines in many cases) and utility restoration, to legal and social services, this will be a good opportunity to have your questions answered. Think of it as a one-stop post-Sandy shop for all New Yorkers.

I'll be at the event in Manhattan. For more info and to RSVP, go to http://www.nysenate.gov/webform/new-york-after-sandy-resource-fair-and-community-conversation

Best,

Paul
