Hello all, I hope you had a wonderful summer.

As we head into the fall season, I’d like to remind you that elections have consequences. New York has been faced with many serious challenges lately and we need innovative thinkers and doers in Albany to help upright the ship. This year, we have elections for all state offices. Please head to the polls this November as an informed voter with an eye on getting our state to move forward. In addition to that, on the city level we continue to deal with disturbing crime trends, poor park conditions and agencies that want to impose major changes in the way we get around, just to name a few issues of concern.

We’re on top of all these, and we hope to keep you up-to-date and engaged via this magazine, social media, our website, and our meetings.
