Your Councilor is working hard during the pandemic: I made two public service announcements for Chanel 34; I attended four virtual Board of School Estimate meetings and adopted the 2020-2021 school budget; I attend four virtual town council meetings to address town-wide issues; I attended four virtual finance committee meetings to address financial issues related to the pandemic; I visited Mountainside Hospital two times to support our healthcare workers on the front lines; I participated in two food drives for Toni's Kitchen; I created a public service announcement for the YMCA of Montclair; I participated in Upper Montclair Business Association telephone conference calls to discuss topics related to the pandemic; and I participated in donating N95 masks to our police department.

A reminder to residents – the office of U.S. Senator Cory Booker compiled "A Coronavirus Pandemic Resource Guide for New Jerseyans" which contains important information on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and what it means for New Jerseyans (direct payments are available to 80% of NJ families); resources for small businesses; information on unemployment insurance and paid leave; resources for veterans, the at-risk and elderly; and other invaluable information critical to all who live and work in our state.
As a long time member and former Board Member of the YMCA of Montclair, please watch my public service announcement on why I continue to support their organization. #Staywithus
