Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and State Senator Michael Gianaris will be joining forces Saturday to meet constituents at the Woodside Library.
The event, dubbed “Mobile District Office Hours,” is an effort by the legislators to address the needs and concerns residents may have outside of their district offices.
“I am excited to launch this effort to reinvent the concept of mobile office hours and put the resources of my district office where the public can best access them,” Gianaris said in a press release.
Gianaris’ senate district and Ocasio-Cortez’ congressional district have some overlap–with both representing Sunnyside, Woodside and a portion of Astoria.
The pair were both outspoken critics of Amazon and the company’s shelved plan to establish a campus in Long Island City.
The event will take place on April 6 from 2:30-4:30 pm at the Woodside Library, located at 54-22 Skillman Ave.
