It has just occurred to me that since the New Year, we've received a bunch of emails from Council Member James Vacca's office announcing very concrete projects he's worked on to improve services for Bronxites.
Some of the projects he's been working on include:
- Securing $300,000 worth of grants to help restore PS 83's aging library. The new space is complete with 10 desktop computers; a SMART board projector and screen; new bookcases, tables, and chairs; new lighting and flooring; and general repairs.
- Securing the donation of the installation of a new stove to the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
- Announcing the allocation of over $10 million in tech funding to schools in his district.
- Visiting the senior citizens at Jeanne Jugan Residence to deliver a free flower arrangement on New Year's Day.
Keep up the good work Council Member Vacca!
