Between CYO, AAU, and intramural programs, basketball is the largest participation sport on the island. Every school and every park has a basketball court. It is growing in popularity and we use basketball as a vehicle to not only encourage kids to pursue higher education but to help give the kids of our communities somewhere to play. Monica has supported our endeavors to help the kids in our communities through our basketball programs. So it’s no surprise why we at iLuvBBall support Monica in her pursuit of a seat at the state senate.
iLuvBBall is making its first political endorsement for Monica Martinez to be our NY State Senator for the 3rd Senatorial District. As a Suffolk County Legislator, she has offered free summer programs for five consecutive years in Brentwood, Central Islip, and North Bay Shore. Moreover, Monica has funded numerous anti-gang/anti-violence programs through local non-profit organizations which offer safe environments and mentorship programs to our youth. This includes the EOC summer basketball program open to all young children residing in the Ninth Legislative District. Monica attends their games and honors the teams and players with proclamations for their continued participation and success.
She has also shown support towards Brentwood Basketball Developmental League and Alzheimer’s All-Star Basketball Classic.
As a former educator, Monica supports programs permitting children to participate in a fun and engaging pastime while learning positive life skills.iLuvBBall recognizes her continued efforts in assisting the community and proudly announces its endorsement for Monica Martinez for NY State Senate.
