Recently, Assemblyman Brian Curran met with Sam Salazar, a senior, and Dante Eusebio, a junior, at Baldwin High School. The students met with Curran in his district office to prepare for their upcoming Mock Session in Albany to be hosted by the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute of which both students are members. The students will debate bills covering several topics, including the DREAM fund, establishing New York as a “sanctuary state,” and preventing wage discrimination. The Mock Session will be held March 10-12.

 

“I had a great afternoon with both Sam and Dante as they asked questions about legislation and procedures in preparation for their upcoming Mock Session,” said Curran. “Both of these students are very bright individuals and have plans to become lawyers and legislators. It’s very exciting to see so many students these days taking an interest in policy and government, and I think the future is in great hands.”

Curran, Baldwin High School Host AT&T “It Can Wait” Program

It Can WaitAssemblyman Brain Curran (Lynbrook – 21st A.D.), along with AT&T, recently hosted the “It Can Wait” program for Baldwin High School seniors. The anti-texting-while-driving campaign for teenagers was presented to over 250 students, staff and administrators by AT&T’s external affairs executive Brandon Ray. As part of the program, the documentary It Can Wait, which narrates stories of families and students who have lost loved ones or been involved in accidents as a result of texting while driving, was shown.

 

“I want to thank my staff, Baldwin High School, and Brandon Ray from AT&T for hosting such a successful event and bringing attention to the distress of what texting while driving can bring,” said Curran. “The fact is, each day, 11 teenagers die as a result of texting and driving accidents. That is a shocking, unacceptable number. I was honored to partner with AT&T to bring this program to the students of Baldwin High School in the hopes that it will save lives.”

 

Research has shown texting and driving is involved in more than 200,000 vehicle crashes each year. AT&T, its employees and other supporters are calling on all drivers to go to www.itcanwait.com to take the no-texting-while-driving pledge, and share their pledge with others on social media.

 

“This is such a serious issue that it needs to receive all the attention it can get. The tragedy this issue brings to families is not worth the importance of any text that is sent while driving,” said Curran. “If something is important enough that you need to send a text message, do the responsible thing and pull over or wait until you get to where you’re going.”
