EDITOR’S NOTE: A spokesperson for Assemblymember Sheldon Silver sent Downtown Express this letter March 4, 2015:
To The Editor:
I would like to recognize your article “Silver Holding on Downtown” (news article, posted Feb. 26 ) and reiterate my commitment to our Lower Manhattan community which continues to be the city’s best place to live, work and raise a family.
I have been proud to lead the fight in creating several high-quality schools with more on the way, opening new public parks and upgrading our waterfront, new retail, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center.
There is always more work to be done. I am continuing to work hard on important issues facing Lower Manhattan including ensuring that our Downtown Little League and Soccer League get the field time they need at the B.P.C. ball fields, coming up with an appropriate redevelopment plan for the South Street Seaport, providing adequate funding to NYCHA residents and community programs serving youth and seniors, and maintaining affordable housing in Battery Park City and throughout the district.
My staff and I remain ready to assist community organizations and local constituents on issues big and small.
Member of the Assembly
