OVER $50K SECURED TO CONTINUE FREE YOUTH SPORTS LEAGUES AT LIC YMCA Van Bramer Celebrates Free Little League with Youth at YMCA Championship Game On Saturday, September 18th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer concluded the 2010 Season of Long Island City’s YMCA Summer Baseball League at their Championship Game in Queensbridge Park. The Long Island City YMCA’s baseball league was originally going to charge participants, however thanks to over $50,000 in City Council funding that Council Member Van Bramer helped secure over 160 local children and teens were able to enjoy the free baseball league this summer. In addition to the free baseball league, local children and parents can continue to enjoy free youth sports programming at the YMCA in Long Island City with other leagues including basketball, flag football, soccer and family bowling – as a result of Council Member Van Bramer’s funding.

SASF TO OPERATE 60 FREE AFTER-SCHOOL SPORTS, ARTS, ACADEMIC PROGRAMS IN NYC PUBLIC SCHOOLS HIGH-QUALITY PROGRAM MODEL WILL SERVE OVER 12,000 STUDENTS IN NYC’S MOST IN-NEED COMMUNITIES; GROWING REACH AS NEED RISES

Woodside, Queens – The Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation (SASF), a leading provider of after-school and summer programming for NYC public school students, will operate high-quality sports, arts and academic after-school programs in about 60 New York City public schools across the five boroughs this school year, all free of charge to participants. SASF’s “Champions Club” after-school programs will serve over 12,000 students, virtually all of whom at-

tend schools in the city’s most in-need communities where safe, productive and fun after-school experiences are scarce. This school year, SASF will be growing to serve more students than at any time in its 19-year history. This is great news for NYC parents, who rely heavily on after-school programs to extend their children’s school days while they are at work– especially in tough economic times. (continued on page 2)

GILLIBRAND: OBSTRUCTION OF DOD REAUTHORIZATION IS WRONG which this country was founded.

Gillibrand Pushed for First Hearing On “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Policy, Introduced Legislation to Repeal Policy Intended to Offer Amendment to DOD Bill to Provide Health Care to 9/11 First Responders and Survivors

After Republicans prevented the FY2011 Department of Defense Authorization bill from coming up for debate, effectively derailing bipartisan efforts to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement: “For nearly two decades, we’ve discharged thousands of America’s best, brightest and bravest on immoral and unconstitutional grounds. The military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy undermines the integrity of our military, hurts our national security, and contradicts the moral foundation upon

The continuous obstructionism is wrong and must end. It has been more than nine years since 9/11 and the Senate still has failed to move forward on legislation to provide health care for the thousands of first responders who served at Ground Zero and survivors living in the area. It is time to seize every opportunity to pass this legislation. This should not be a partisan issue. We have an undeniable moral obligation to pass this legislation and provide care to the thousands of heroes and survivors, who are suffering and dying. It is time for us in Congress to do what’s right, restore integrity to our armed forces, put our national security before politics and ideology, and keep our promise to the heroes of this country who came to our rescue on 9/11.”

JEC Report Shows Income Inequality Peaked Before Great Recession Washington, D.C. – A new report by the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee (JEC) shows that income inequality skyrocketed in the past three decades, peaked under President Bush just before the Great Recession began, and may have been a root cause of the worst recession since the Great Depression. The report, entitled “Income Inequality and the Great Recession,” finds that middle class incomes, which had grown at a healthy pace during the Clinton Administration, declined under President Bush and never regained their highs reached before the 2001 recession. After President Bush’s eight years in office, middle class families had seen their annual incomes fall by more than $2,600. Stagnant incomes led to an increased demand for credit, with the household debtto-income ratio growing dramatically from 2001-2007. The unsustainable spending sparked the housing bubble, and subsequent collapse, and ultimately helped to trigger the Great Recession. “This JEC report shows that the Bush economic policies exacerbated income inequality and led us into a painful, protracted recession, the effects of which we still feel today,” said Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, Chair of the JEC. “Middle class Americans lost ground under President Bush and so when the Great Recession hit at the end of 2007, they were already vulnerable and were hit particularly hard. Tragically, the Bush economic legacy is greater inequality, a weakened middle class and the worst recession in more than 75 years.” The peak in income inequality that occurred prior to the Great Recession mirrored a similar high just before the onset of the Great Depression. In 1928, the share of

income going to the top decile of households reached 49.3 percent. In 2007, the wealthiest 10 percent accounted for 49.7 percent of total income, eclipsing the high reached before the Great Depression. While policymakers helped to keep income inequality low in the decades after the Great Depression, Bush Administration policies, including tax policies that lowered the top marginal tax rate for the wealthiest Americans, led to growing inequality that left the economy more vulnerable to a deep recession. The JEC report also found: · In the past three decades, the share of income going to the wealthiest 10 percent of households has increased significantly, from 34.6 percent in 1980 to 48.2 percent in 2008. · Annual income for middle class Americans – those in the middle income quintile – increased by more than $6,700 during the Clinton Administration. During the eight years of the Bush Administration, this middle quintile saw their annual incomes fall by more than $2,600. ·Americans across all five income quintiles saw income gains during the Clinton Administration, while, by contrast, incomes fell for each quintile during the Bush Administration. · The increase in marginal tax rates for the wealthiest one percent of households during the Clinton Administration did not lower these households’ income. Real income of the top 1 percent grew at an average annual rate of 10.3 percent during the Clinton years. · From 1948 to 2005, incomes for Americans in the 60th percentile grew at an average of 2.5 percent under Democratic Presidents, compared to an average growth rate of just 1.1 percent under Republicans.

COUNCIL MEMBER VAN BRAMER PARTICIPATES IN BAYANIHAN CULTURAL FESTIVAL IN WOODSIDE

OPTICAL Van Bramerstanding with the Kabalikat Domestic Workers Support Network at the 2nd Annual Bayanihan Cultural Festival in Woodside’s Hart Playground.

On Sunday, September 19th Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer joined neighbors and members from The Philippine Forum for their 2nd Annual Bayanihan Cultural Festival at the Hart Playground in Woodside. The festival, which Council Member Van Bramer helped secure $5,000 for, was a fun-filled day where locals enjoyed food, face painting, free health screenings and folk dances. Council Member Van Bramer presented The Philippine Forum with a Proclamation from the City Of New York recognizing their dedication to providing assistance and advocacy to the Filipino American community in Queens and throughout our great city.

Speaker Quinn, Van Bramer and Assemblywoman Nolan Greet Adult Learners at Queens Library City Council Speaker Christine Quinn joined Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer, New York State Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan and CEO Thomas Galante at the Queens Library’s Family Literacy Center in Ravenswood, Queens to welcome students to a new year of multigenerational learning. The Family Literacy Center is the only dedicated facility of its kind in NYC. It provides intensive training to immigrant families and combines English language learning with early childhood education, pre-GED training, job readiness and life skills. The new students were introduced to the program by “graduates,” who related how the program had added value to their lives, economies and families. Speaker Quinn has been a strong proponent for literacy. She recently launched the GED Compass portal to raise awareness and provide resources on adult education (www.gedcompass.org). Both Councilman Van Bramer and Assemblywoman Nolan have advocated for strong libraries and their value in creating literate and job-ready communities in our city. Queens Library’s strong calendar of ESOL and literacy programs is the largest library-sponsored program of its kind in the U.S. It spans the full spectrum of adult education, from teaching basic literacy skills through pre-GED, ESOL and support for higher education and professional skills training. Queens Library is an independent, not-for-profit corporation and is not affiliated with any other library. The Queens Library serves a population of 2.2 million in the most ethnically diverse county in the U.S. With a record 23 million items in circulation for FY 2010, the Library has the highest circulation of any public library system in the U.S. and one of the highest circulations in the world.

You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. § 1303 NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be
