Assemblymember For A Day
Assemblymember Mark Weprin (D-Bayside) was joined by Assemblymember for a Day contest winner Neharah Gill in Albany recently. Each spring, for the past seven years, Weprin has sponsored an essay contest. This year students were asked to write about "Why I Love America." Gill, a fifth grade student at P.S. 115, Bellerose, who immigrated from India to the United States less than three years ago, was selected to win this year’s contest. She was accompanied by her parents as she assumed her role as a state legislator for the day.
