“I thank all those that joined together to urge the city to keep our Douglass-Degraw Pool open this summer,” said Millman. “Together our voices were strong enough to save this vital community resource. Now, countless children and their families will be able to cool off this summer. In these challenging economic times, it’s more important than ever for families to have affordable recreational options.”
The immediate neighborhood has been hit with proposals to slash funding for three day care centers, a senior center, a child health clinic, an after-school program as well as public library services. Assemblywoman Millman has urged Mayor Bloomberg to avert these disastrous budget cuts that threaten to seriously impact the residents of the 52nd Assembly District.
