Abrahams brings gov’t to doorstep in District 1

Pledges to knock on the doors of each of his 40,000 constituents as part of his Community Education Program

“Who do I call if my road needs repair?”

“The park down the block is a mess. Who takes care of it?”

“There’s trouble on my block from gang members. Who can I call?”

These are some of the most frequently asked questions from the residents of Legislative District One, according to Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead.)

“Sometimes it’s difficult for a resident to know what government entity is responsible for what,” said Abrahams. “In District One, there are several layers of government, including Federal, New York State, Nassau County, Town of Hempstead and Villages of Freeport and Hempstead.”

That’s why Legislator Abrahams has launched a Community Education Program in 2005, designed to inform, educate and empower residents so that they know how to resolve problems concerning their residence.

“This program brings government to the people,” said Abrahams. “Even though I hold over a dozen community meetings throughout the year, sometimes it’s difficult for the everyday family to make it to those meetings. But even though they aren’t able to attend meetings, they can still get the information they need.”

The Community Education Program includes distributing a flow chart with vital information so that a resident can clearly understand what constituent services are available and from whom. It will also answer too many frequently asked questions.

Legislator Abrahams’ goal, starting in 2005, is to knock on each door in District One in order to personally meet and greet his constituents. With over 40,000 households in Legislative District 1, this task will not be easy. But nonetheless, Legislator Abrahams is readying his walking shoes and is anxious to hear constituents’ concerns.

“I really enjoy meeting each resident and discussing viable solutions to community problems,” he said.

For more information about this program, or to get a copy of the flow chart, call 571-6201.
