Nothing is more important to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney than the quality of life in her district.

Whether working to create an academically rigorous public high school on the Upper East Side, seeking to restore the crumbling Queens seawall or fighting for a full build Second Avenue Subway, her first priority has always been to make her district a better place to live.
