Long Island's Polish Americans Registering to vote in Copiague.
June 27, 2008
The Downstate New York Division of the Polish American Congress extended its 2008 voter registration drive beyond the confines of New York City into the Long Island suburbs.
The annual festival of the Polish Friends of Copiague gave the Congress a unique opportunity to offer its services to the customary throng of Polish Americans who attend each year.
Seated at the Polish American Congress booth and enrolling new voters are (from left): Frank Milewski, president of the Downstate
Division; Richard Brzozowski who heads the Division’s newly formed Long Island Chapter and Chris Rybkiewicz, chairman of the Voter Registration Committee.
Rybkiewicz originally planned to suspend his committee’s operations for the vacation months of July and August and resume after Labor Day.
“But with so many of our constituents still to be reached, we’ll have to work right through the summer,” he said.
