Addabbo to host mobile office hours at library

Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. State Senator Joseph Addabbo is holding mobile office hours to meet with constituents at the Middle Village library next week.

This will be the second time Addabbo has hosted office hours in the neighborhood. The last time was in August.

The senator will be at the library (72-31 Metropolitan Avenue) on Monday, October 17 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. It’s the perfect time to bring any problems or concerns to a local elected official.

“As an elected official, making sure I interact with the people I represent is one of my top priorities,” Addabbo said. “I have always urged my constituents to contact me if I can help them in any way, but it is not always easy for some people to do that during normal business hours.”

“These extended office hours, held at night in various neighborhoods throughout my district, are an excellent way to make sure I am not only reaching as many residents as possible, but also making it more convenient by coming to them,” he added.

Christ the King hosts weekend open house


Christ the King High School hosted its annual open house over the weekend. Prospective students and families visited the campus and facilities. Teachers, current students and even former students led tours and took questions.

“Christ the King High School’s open house provided prospective students and their families an opportunity to tour our school and view personally the first class programs and facilities our school has to offer,” said principal Peter Mannarino. “The tremendous turnout of visitors is a testament of the hard work and effects put in by the faculty and administration to make Christ the King a pillar of academic excellence.”
