The Richardson Report
From Left: Chief of Staff Edu Hermelyn, Assemblymember Diana C. Richardson, Director of Communications Micheil Yohannes and Director of Constituent Services Cassandra Coleman

Dear Friends,

Another summer is coming to a close. As we prepare for the beginning of another work and school year, let's take a look back.

In my first summer as your Assemblymember, I have had the pleasure of greeting so many of my constituents at wonderful block parties and other social events. Building community is what we do in the 43rd District, and sharing time with wonderful community and block associations, their members and residents as they celebrate their communities in the presence of one another is the most rewarding part of my job.

In addition, we spent the summer going about the work of fighting for our constituents. While it pains me to see the hardship so many in our communities are facing, knowing that my office can advocate on your behalf encourages my resolve to fight for you.

Please remember my office is here to serve you. We are located at 1216 Union St. Our office hours are 10:00AM-6:00PM, Monday-Friday. If you would prefer to reach us by phone, please call: 718-771-3105.

Many Thanks,
