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.

Today, the Congresswoman commended President Clinton for significantly increasing resources to combat the beetle in his 2001 budget.
