Local Issues

Nothing is more important to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney than the quality of life in her district. She is proud of the work she has done to improve infrastructure, preserve historic neighborhoods, fight for better zoning and create schools 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.

To kick off the week, on Monday, I introduced my bill to stop banks from charging outrageous overdraft fees and taking advantage of their customers who can least afford it. Later in the week, I proudly voted with House Democrats to ban harmful offshore drillingand protect our environment. And, before returning to DC, I gathered with community and nonprofit leaders to call on Congress to pass my bill to support the creation of new community gardens and parks.
