Legislator Kate Browning (WF-Shirley) was proud to attend a citizenship recognition event at the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library on June 7, 2015. Eleven local residents obtained U.S. citizenship over the past year, after completing the library’s citizenship preparation program. Legislator Kate Browning was joined by Assemblyman Fred Thiele and Councilman Dan Panico to recognize their achievement.
In attendance as new citizens were Maria Cruz, Hieu Pung, Ana Encalada, Kenia Rios, Christian Cruz, Jorge Santillana, Yazmin Riaz, Martha Santiago, Juana Mejia, Norma Montoya and Claudia Stinson.
“The Mastic-Moriches-Shirley Community Library runs an amazing literacy program and has helped countless residents become United State citizens,” stated Legislator Browning. “Having personally gone through the process of becoming a U.S. citizen it is particularly special to celebrate this proud achievement with our residents.”
