Notes From Omar

Schenectady School Board Election

"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it."

Marian Wright Edelman


I want to congratulate our two newly elected School Board members, Erica Brockmeyer and Jamaica Miles. It is important that our community members get involved and help be the change they want to see. Our Schenectady City School Board will benefit greatly from these two new additions. I hope to work with both of them as well as the full School Board in the future to help improve our education system. 


Schenectady Community Cleanup Saturday

“The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share.”

Lady Bird Johnson

It was an honor to participate in community cleanups around my district. We must continue to take the health of our earth and environment seriously. Cleaner green spaces and air is vital now and for the next generation. The more clean fresh air we have, the healthier our communities can become. I want to thank Goose Hill, Stockade, Vale Village, and Bellevue neighborhoods for allowing me to participate in their community cleanups.
