We are extremely grateful for the support and advocacy of all of our dedicated elected officials: Senator Charles E. Schumer, Senator Kirsten R. Gillibrand, Representative Jerrold L. Nadler, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer, Speaker Christine Quinn, Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, and the Cultural Affairs Committee of the New York City Council, State Senator Brad Hoylman, and Assembly Member Deborah J.
