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 Es 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 being the overall commitment of improving our socio-economic situation so that while we close the income inequality gap, we improve the livelihoods of all of our residents.

Let us join together to help our people. I cant do it alone. It wont 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
