Welcome Letter

To the people of our beloved 79th district,

Thank you for giving me the honor to represent our beloved 79th Assembly District. I am here for you. I am here to serve the people.

My vision is focused on 3,2,1.

3 being the 3 E’s of Economic Development, Education and Equality for all.

2 being the paths in how we achieve improvement:

Strengthening our Minority- and Women-Owned Businesses to have greater access to capital, contracting and opportunities so they hire our community residents and empower our neighborhoods as a whole. Secondly, focusing on creating a career-oriented education vision throughout our district so that we remember the priority of ensuring our children learn and are prepared to excel in society.

1 goal of transforming the South Bronx into the urban metropolis of the world.

Let us join together to help our people. I can’t do it alone. It won’t be easy, but we will get there.

This is our moment. This is our time. This is the new 79th!

Yours in service,
Assemblyman Michael Blake
