Jewish Center of Jackson Heights


This Friday at 6:00 P.M. Senator Jose Peralta will be hosting a town hall at the Jackson Heights Jewish Center to discuss his motivations for joining the Independent Democratic Conference.

“The Independent Democratic Conference, whose collaboration with Republicans in the State Senate has allowed that party to control the chamber despite being outnumbered by Democrats, added an eighth member on Wednesday.” (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/25/nyregion/independent-democratic-conference-republicans-state-senate.html)

On Friday, we have an opportunity to ask him about his motivations and offer our opinions.
