A Message from Jumaane…
Dear Friends,
As we enter the summer months, I would like to congratulate all of our students on
another successful year! We have so much to be proud of thanks to their continueddevelopment and growing sense of civic duty, as exemplified by the young peoplethat joined us to march against violence in our community several weeks ago; youcan see the photo below to get a sense of how inspiring the event was for everyone.This past Thursday, I traveled to Washington, DC with colleagues from city andstate government to advise members of Congress and the Department of Justice on
our concerns with the NYPD’ stop, question and frisk policy. I am pleased to report
it was a successful day of advocacy, and I am more optimistic than ever at ourprospects for better policing and safer streets for all New Yorkers. I hope you will
 join our efforts this Father’s Day to advance reform; get out the “GET ACTIVE”
section for more information!
I hope you enjoy the latest “One
One with Council Member Williams”, which
shows my remarks at the
“Yes to Children, No to Child Care Cuts” Mass Rally on
May 31
! Thank you again for all you do for the 45
Heroes of the 45
Sherif Fraser, District Manager of Community Board 17
1) What work do you do in the 45th?My work in the 45
District consists of managing the daily operations of Community Board
17, identifying community needs as part of the City’s budget process and working with
government agencies to improve the delivery of services to residents of the district.2) Why did you decide to get involved in the community?My
passion for community service developed back in Guyana. I remember accompanyingmy Dad to political events back in Guyana and even then, I understood the benefitsresidents could derive from getting involved in their community.3) Tell me a valuable experience you had in your service.

Update from City Hall
Council Member Jumaane D. Williams June 10, 2012 E-Newsletter
While there are many, my constant iswhen someone calls the office or sends a
“Thank You” letter expressing how my
assistance made a difference in theirlives. That is the most fulfilled feeling.4) How can people get involved?People can get involved by becomingmembers of their community boards, ormembers of the various committees on theboard. Additionally, they could organizeand form community groups and becomeinvolved with community organizationsthat address the needs of the community.
It’s budget season at City Hall!
 Council Member Williams has attended a series of executivebudget hearings over the last few weeks, asking tough questionsto agency commissioners about how their proposed spendingand cuts will impact the 45
As always, his goal is to make our community “a safe place foryoung people to learn and grow”. That is why Council MemberWilliams is on the record that he will not vote for this year’s
budget unless serious restorations are made to our youthprogramming. Thousands of slots have been cut from Out ofSchool Time and child care, and Beacon schools are beingslashed across the city. We know how pivotal these programs areto working families and how cutting them is both a public safety
hazard and a danger to our children’s futures.
Council Member Williams is also committed to preservingfunding for senior services. He has been visiting centers aroundthe district to ensure he has the best understanding of what theyneed to live their best lives.
