I participated in the press conference against the decision by Political Science Department of Brooklyn College to co-sponsor hate forum "BDS movement against Israel" оn Thursday, January 31, 2013. This press conference was organized by Dov Hikind, Assemblyman from Midwood and Boro Park.
I made a decision to run for City Council seat this year - in 48 District. This District includes many great, beautiful neighborhoods of Southern Brooklyn, like Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Homecrest, Midwood... It will have some new areas like Luna Park, Trump Village and See Breeze Avenue.
On Thursday, September 13, 2012, I won by 750 votes and became a District Leader beating 24-year incumbent Michael Geller. My victory would not be possible without your encouragement and assistance. Thank you so much!
