To the Editor:
I have been a Southtown representative on RIRA for three years and I have truly enjoyed my experience. Participation in the RIRA Common Council affords me the opportunity to be involved in very concrete ways that affect life on Roosevelt Island. From working with fellow committee members on legislation that dictates the governance structure of the Island, to ensuring that walking and running paths remain open and available to Island residents during the Cornell University construction, RIRA members like me have incredible opportunities to help ensure a good quality of life for our neighbors Island-wide.
