Assemblyman Peter Abbate
"Getting Results and Improving Our Quality of Life"
blue line

photo As your Assemblyman and a life long resident of our community, I’ve always taken pride in the fact that I represent one of the finest areas in our state. Ensuring that our community continues to grow and prosper, I’ve always made bringing our tax dollars back to our community one of my top priorities each year. The fundamental idea behind this strategy is to make sure that we receive our fair share of funds for our local schools, senior centers and community groups.
photo In this report, I’ve included a map of our part of Brooklyn that pinpoints where important funding for community programs and services have gone to improve the way we live. These funds have been used by local groups and schools to enrich the lives of the children, families and the elderly of our community.

I’m happy that I’ve played a role in making these improvements in our community. I’ve always done my best to meet the needs of our neighborhoods, and this newsletter is evidence of my continued commitment to the people I represent in Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Dyker Heights and Boro Park.

photo Over the years, I’ve worked closely with past and present elected officials on the city, state and federal level. Through our cooperative effort we’ve been able to make a difference on the quality of life issues that affect us all. Whether it is getting funds for senior citizen centers, grants for local schools, funding for community organizations for after school, cultural and social services, or assisting those who need help, I’m glad that I’ve been instrumental in bringing the resources of government back to our neighborhoods.

Assemblyman Peter Abbate
Working to Bring Our Tax Dollars Home blue line

Assemblyman Abbate’s efforts in Albany have successfully brought our hard earned tax dollars home. He has personally been responsible for obtaining over $8.3 million for many important community programs and projects.

To ensure that the senior citizens of our community live their later years with dignity, Assemblyman Abbate has fought to keep funds in the budget for the elderly. He has personally secured over $1 million for local senior centers and programs.

A large portion of the funds that Assemblyman Abbate has brought to our community have gone directly into our neighborhood schools. Over $2.2 million has gone into Community School Districts 20 and 21 for educational programs and community organizations for after school youth programs.

Not one to overlook the little things that affect our daily lives in a big way, Assemblyman Abbate’s two district offices have helped more than 7,500 people with all sorts of problems.
