Constituents of the 90th Assembly District, Yonkers, meet with Assemblymember Shelley Mayer during Mobile Office Hours.

YONKERS, NY - Assemblymember Shelley Mayer (D-Yonkers), held Mobile Office Hours at Yonkers Riverfest on Saturday, September 16th; at the Yonkers H-Mart on Monday, September 18th; and the Yonkers Crestwood Library on Wednesday, September 20th. Through outreach done on social media, a district-wide mailed newsletter, and an e-blast, Yonkers residents were encouraged to stop by and share their thoughts and concerns with Assemblymember Mayer. Many residents spoke with Assemblymember Mayer and staff throughout the Mobile Office Hours. Constituents raised concerns over issues such as clean-ups along Bronx River Road; an increase in traffic violations, specifically speeding; and networks for parents who homeschool children. "As a state representative of the City of Yonkers, I see it as my duty to make myself as available as possible to my constituents in order to best represent them," said Assemblymember Shelley Mayer (AD-90, Yonkers). "Mobile Office Hours are a great way to meet constituents where they are, hear from them about their day-to-day issues, and help address problems they might have. If my office is not able to solve their issue, most of the time we are able to direct the person to the proper office that can serve them." The President of the Friends of the Crestwood Library, John Jeris, also joined Assemblymember Mayer at the Mobile Office Hours at the Crestwood Library. Mr. Jeris discussed with Assemblymember Mayer the possibility of identifying additional areas of improvement for the Crestwood Branch where the state can assist in moving the project forward. Assemblymember Mayer's staff also helped a number of residents register to vote. The deadline to register to vote and be able to cast a ballot in the November 7th general election is October 18th. If anyone could not attend any of the Mobile Office Hours but they have a concern they would like to address with Assemblymember Mayer, they are encouraged to call her District Office at 914-779-8805 or email MayerS@nyassembly.gov.
