Welcome Letter

Welcome to the website of Assemblymember Diana C. Richardson.

I am honored and proud to serve as the representative for the people of the 43rd Assembly District in Brooklyn, featuring the communities of Crown Heights, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Wingate and Flatbush. The 43rd is home to a diverse array of individuals who add to the dynamic and exciting cultural flavor of the district. My office is open to all, and it is my goal to both offer service to the community to help any constituent seeking assistance, and to legislate with the needs of our residents at the forefront.

You can use this page to easily access information about the work I do both in Albany and at home to pass laws designed to build a stronger, healthier and more vibrant New York. You can contact me with issues of concern, legislation you support or oppose, or ideas to help make our community stronger, healthier and safer.

In addition, you can use the entire Assembly Web site as a great way to stay apprised of new legislation that impacts our state as well as the Assembly District. I encourage you to visit this site often to keep yourself up to date on various issues, news and legislative hearings. Thank You for visiting.
