It was a great honor to speak to dozens of parents and teachers as the Featured Guest at P.S 77’s Annual Fundraising Gala. The gala was “Fiesta” themed and it did not disappoint. The auction was organized by Lower Lab’s Parent Teacher Association which is led by Co-Presidents Denice Balducci, Amanda Burnovski, and Joelle Soleymani. At Lower Lab, since I was elected, I have allocated $88,000 for technology upgrades in 2016, 250,000 for a new cooling and air conditioning system in 2017 and finally for fiscal year 2018, a half million dollar renovation of the school’s shared playground. Thank you to the school and Principal Miller for this opportunity to work together.
