Join us for a Town Hall with County Legislator, Catherine Parker on April 29

On Sunday, April 29 at 2pm, Up2Us will welcome Westchester County Legislator and Majority Leader, Catherine Parker for a Town Hall meeting at the Millwood Firehouse in Millwood.

Catherine Parker represents the 7th Legislative District (Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Rye, Part of Harrison and Part of New Rochelle) and is currently serving as the Majority Leader of the Democratic Caucus.  

Catherine has played a role in the passage of the act prohibiting gun shows at the Westchester County Center and other county facilities.  As a sponsor of the creation of a County Energy Director position, she looks forward to working with the County Executive to see the role of the Director expand to help improve energy efficiency across the County and reduce some of the financial burden of taxpayers. Legislator Parker has also introduced legislation to Limit Use of Plastic Bags and Styrofoam by retailers in the county and to provide for cleaner air by reducing and eventually eliminating the use of dirtier #4 and #6 heating fuels.

We look forward to hearing her thoughts on Westchester County Government and legislative issues.

The Millwood Fire House is located at 100 Millwood Road in Millwood, NY.

New Yorkers: Ask Senators Schumer and Gillibrand to hold a Town Hall in NYC!

Neither Senator Schumer nor Senator Gillibrand have held a town hall in New York City since the election, but we know they have been working hard on behalf of New Yorkers and all Americans.

With so much under attack - immigrants, healthcare, public schools, the environment, civil and voting rights, FACTs and even our Democracy - we want to meet with (and hear from) our elected officials more than ever.

Up2Us is working with nine NY Metro area Indivisible groups to encourage both Senators to host an event during the Senate recess next week.

Join us in calling our Senators on Wednesday, May 24th.

D.C.:  (202) 224-6542

Below is a suggested Script:

Hi, my name is…        and I’m a constituent from…       I’m calling  to ask the Senator to host a town hall in NYC during the upcoming Senate recess.

Will the Senator be holding any public events in NYC during the next recess?

If no:   Why not?

I believe that now, more than ever, it is essential for elected officials to hear directly from constituents in order to know what to prioritize back in DC. If not during this recess, when will the Senator hold a town hall in NYC?
