“Direct Connect Sunday” will be held on Sunday, January 31 from noon to 3 PM. Staten Islanders are encouraged to come by and learn more about what the Borough President’s office is doing to improve Staten Island, talk with BP Oddo and staff about specific issues, and have the opportunity to tour historic Borough Hall.
“Once again, we are opening Borough Hall’s doors to the public and encourage Staten Islanders to attend on January 31 and learn more about what we have been working on this past year and our plans for next year,” noted Oddo. “Although they already have figurative direct access to us 24/7 through our active social media accounts, ‘Direct Connect’ Sunday provides Staten Islanders with the opportunity to have personal direct access to us. Our open houses in 2014 and 2015 were successes, and we anticipate a similar level of success.”
For the event, staff will be on hand to help with constituent issues, answer questions from the public, as well as discuss the issues that the Borough President is working on to improve Staten Island. The office will also have a detailed display about plans and initiatives rolled out during 2015, as well as the Borough President’s agenda for 2016.
