“Direct Connect Sunday” will be held on Sunday, January 25 from noon to 3 PM. Staten Islanders are encouraged to come by, learn about the Borough President’s agenda, activities during 2014, and have an opportunity to meet the Borough President and meet with his staff to discuss issues of concern, whether specific issues that constituents need help solving or borough-wide issues.
“Borough Hall’s doors are figuratively and literally open and all Staten Islanders are encouraged to come by, learn in more detail about the things we have worked on this past year, and our agenda for 2015,” noted Oddo. “My staff and I will be here to talk about where we’ve been and where we are going.”
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 2014 as well as a demo on the new app, BPAssist. “Whether you are concerned about a specific issue and need our help, just want to check out historic Borough Hall, or want to meet the people who put together our anti-litter and health and wellness campaigns, our summer concert series or other events and initiatives, joining us for Direct Connect Sunday is an ideal time to visit,” Oddo said.
There is no need to RSVP for the event, and Staten Islanders can come any time during the noon to 3:00 p.m. time frame.
