Voter Registration Drive Thrives & Senior Issues Forum Is Coming

Members of Tilden took to the streets on six different occasions during July and August, signing up new voters and getting the word out that New Yorkers need to vote. Wearing special t-shirts and buttons (rumors are that a photo of Tildenites and their t-shirts may appear in the New York Times weekend fashion section .. although Town & Village scooped The Times) groups could be seen at events and on street corners, having fun while doing what Good Democrtas do. Members who were out there included: Dottie Blumner, Genevieve Cervera, District Leader Louise Dankberg, Greg Martello, Paula Schaeffer, Mark Shapiro, Shelly Winfield (who spearheads the effort and has kept the momentum going), Alicia Zanelli, Tony Ficcio, Robert Iskowitz, Greg Lambert, Edie Shanker, Kate Waterman, Sylvia Oshpyko, Esther Ramos, Virginia Rosario, Sandy Hecker, and Mark Thompson. Keep your eyes and ears pen for future dates .. it’s a fun way to meet people, catch up with Tidlen members, and get new voters.

On Monday, September 15, State Senator Liz Kruger will be the Keynote Speaker at Community Board Six’s Senior Issues Forum. The event will last from 6-8 pm and will be held at NYU Langone Medical Center Alumni Hall B. The event will be moderated by Tilden’s very own Ahsia Badi, and features multiple expert panelists who will discuss issues of interest to seniors, including housing, health care, technology and lifelong learning. Please RSVP to or call (212) 319-3750.

Remember our next meeting will be September 18!
