An advocate for community safety, Sycamore Avenue Elementary School third-grader Braden Zuccaro recently worked to improve traffic safety in his neighborhood by contacting Peter Kletchka, project supervisor for the Islip Town Department of Public Works. 

As a result of this outreach, Mr. Kletchka visited the school in the Connetquot Central School District on Jan. 22 and spoke to Braden and his classmates about the process he takes into addressing citizens’ safety concerns. He also thanked Braden for his thoughtful letter, and assured him that additional representatives of the Town of Islip will visit the area of concern to see what remedies can be introduced to satisfy Braden’s safety concerns.

“You are never too young to have your concerns heard, and to make a difference,” said Sycamore School Youth and Family Services Coordinator Robyn Hoffmann.
