You're Invited: Coffee with your Congressman

January 9, 2018
Press Release

Dear Friends,

Last month, President Trump signed into law a massive tax cut for corporations, special interests, and Republican donors that will bankrupt middle-class America. I fought against passage of this bill because it shortchanged the very people it should have helped most—every day, hard-working Americans. I know a lot of residents in Queens and the Bronx would like more information about the new law and how it will affect them, which is why I will host a “Coffee with Congressman Crowley” on Saturday, January 13 to answer any questions you may have.

Please know this is the first in a series of coffees I will be hosting this year at diners, coffeehouses, and businesses throughout Queens and the Bronx. The details for Saturday are below, and please be on the lookout for future invitations.

What: Coffee with Congressman Joe Crowley

Where: Jahn’s Diner at 81-04 37th Avenue #1, Jackson Heights, NY 11372 (Between 81st and 82nd Street)

When: Saturday, January 13 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Topic(s): To discuss the local impact of the tax legislation, answer questions, and discuss my vision for Queens and the Bronx.

You and I agree that working- and middle-class families across Queens and the Bronx deserve an economy that works for them. As your Congressman, I have been fighting to enact a progressive tax reform plan that puts hard-working, middle-class families first, while protecting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The Republicans’ tax bill fell short on every level, including by repealing the State and Local Tax Deduction. This provision will raise the cost of our state and local services, reduce public revenue, and cut crucial public investments for New Yorkers.

While I am disappointed Republicans and President Trump were able to ram their tax bill through, I want to make sure all residents of NY-14 are prepared for what’s to come. Again, that’s why I will be on hand at Jahn’s this coming Saturday. You can ask me questions about the tax bill, but I will also be happy to discuss any issues of concern as well as share with you my ideas for our community.

Again, I hope to see you on Saturday! If you’re unable to make it, but need anything from my office, please do not hesitate to reach out. My district offices can be reached at 718-779-1400 (Queens) and 718-931-1400 (Bronx).
