In order to communicate effectively with the constituents of Orange County, Jeff has instituted a plan of action. Legislator Berkman sponsors meetings, or Open Forums, in various locations to speak with the people of our community. Anyone who wants to express an opinion or needs assistance with county government may visit with Jeff to discuss their concerns. Those meetings have open agendas. Sometimes Jeff schedules these Open Forums at a location of another group's meeting. Please let Jeff know of your requests so we may cooperate with coinciding schedules and meetings with specific agendas.

Jeff testified at the New York State Assembly hearing on the Indian Point evacuation plan in the White Plains Public Library on January 17, 2003. Mr. Berkman was invited to comment about the inadequacy of the plan by Richard Brodsky.

Jeff attended a meeting for the Healthy Orange Center at Mount Saint Mary's College in Newburgh on January 31, 2003. This community group is dedicated to improving health in regard to heart disease.

Jeff is pleased to make himself available to meet with neighborhood watch groups, service organizations, educational advocacy groups or other community groups. Please contact us.
