Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your new Assembly Member! As you may know, due to redistricting, I am now represent- ing parts of Middle Village, Rego Park, and Elmhurst in the New York State Assembly. I want to take this time to tell you a bit about our work and how we can best assist you and your neighbors.

Over the last four years, I have had the honor of representing portions of Jackson Heights, Corona, and Elmhurst. During this time, we have passed more than twenty laws to combat food insecurity, curtail the high cost of healthcare, protect the elderly, and so much more! I also helped pass historic budgets that invested billions of dollars into our community. Additionally, I secured close to a million dollars directly for our local partners like Elmhurst Hospital, NY Cares, and several local schools and libraries. The funding helped purchase equipment and provide services for seniors, families, and our children. My hard-working District Office Team is proud to have helped thousands of neighbors access legal services, small business support, obtain unemployment insurance, health insurance, pandemic assistance and assistance with mortgage, rent and utility payments. We also continue to address quality of life issues like street and curb safety, graffiti and garbage removal, and snow plowing through our close work with our Community Boards and City and State agencies. Lastly, we are proud to provide a variety of resource events to our community, such as back to school/backpack parties, community cleanups, health and legal clinics, and many other events. We invite you to follow us on social media to learn about upcoming events in your neighborhood – @catalinacruzny.

Our ability to create change and support you is based on your feedback! Let us know if you have an idea for legislation, a program you would like to be funded, or need assistance with an issue. Our district office remains open by appointment, so we encourage you to reach out by email to our Chief of Staff at or call us at (718) 458-5367. Our office, located at 41-40 Junction Boulevard, is open from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Monday to Thursday and 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. on Fridays. We hope to hear from you soon!

Always Standing With You,

Catalina Cruz, Esq.
Member of Assembly, District 39
