Welcome, and thank you for visiting my official website. It is an honor to represent one of the most ethnically, culturally, and racially diverse communities in this great country; the new Ninth Congressional District of New York.
This new website will serve as an online office, keeping constituents updated on my work in Congress. The new website has a number of new features including an e-news sign up, press clips, tour requests, a vote tracker, and even links to my Twitter and Facebook accounts. All of these resources will allow us to keep in touch so I may serve you better. I hope you find the website informative and a good way to stay updated on the ways I am working to serve the residents of Brooklyn.
