Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It’s more important now than ever to shop small! Many small businesses have been harmed by the economic toll of the pandemic and together we have built and supported community resilience that continues to be put to the test this year. Small businesses are the heart and soul of our community. I encourage the community to mark their calendars this weekend and support the 43rd Assembly District’s independent, locally-owned neighborhood shops, restaurants, cafes, and stores on Small Business Saturday, November 27th, and all season long.
As the holidays are quickly approaching us, my office has comprised The 43rd Assembly District Small Business Guide and The 43rd Assembly District Dine Local Guide, both of which feature some of the small businesses throughout the district. The guides showcase local businesses with unique items for all of your loved ones this season and throughout the year.
As you peruse the guides, I hope you recognize the vital impact our local businesses have on our community. By choosing local and independent businesses for your services, you not only enjoy a more distinctive and personal experience, but you’re also helping to strengthen your local economy, increase community wealth, and create new jobs and opportunities. You can download your copy of the guide below.
Let’s continue to make this Holiday Season a personable experience you won’t forget!
Feel free to contact us at (718) 771-3105 or by email at District43@nyassembly.gov.
As always, I leave you with the reminder that in unity, there is strength.
