Garden Party Fundraiser for Brad Lander Tuesday evening

Neighbor Wylie Goodman shared this invite to a garden party fundraiser for Brad Lander. We here at Word on Columbia Street are big fans of Councilperson Lander and hope some of you can spring for a ticket for this special event.

Here is Wylie's message:
After working for three years for Partnerships for Parks, volunteering with Participatory Budgeting, and becoming more involved with our Community Board, I've come to appreciate what it means to have a Councilperson like Brad Lander on our side as a community. Brad is smart, hard-working, and, most importantly, dedicated to progressive causes and to improving the quality of life of the residents he serves. 
He helped fund the renovation of the DiMattina Dog Run.  He’s long supported the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative.  He spearheaded Participatory Budgeting, which allows locals to meaningfully contribute to capital projects for their community.  He’s helped foster the growth of our neighborhood’s small businesses. He’s advocated consistently and diligently for the creation of affordable housing.  And that’s just the beginning. 
On July 15th, there will be a garden party and fundraiser for Brad in honor of his 45th birthday.  Tickets are $100.  I know that may be a lot for some people.  It was for me, too. But in the end, I decided that all politics is local.  And if you want to have a voice in the politics of your community, you need to be at the table with the people who are representing on your behalf. 
If you can afford that amount, please consider attending what should be a truly special event.  And when you register, tell them you were referred by me.  I decided to go a step further and serve on the Host Committee.

Here are details on the event and how to RSVP:
