NY officials learn to swim at YMCA, promote water safety.

by Todd Vandersline / nyclocal.org

New York State Senator Jamaal T. Bailey and NYC Councilmember Kevin Riley recently learned how to swim at the YMCA of Greater New York. They participated in 8-week swim lessons at the Northeast Bronx YMCA with other elected officials. Senator Bailey felt more empowered and less afraid in the water after completing the lessons. Both officials admitted to being scared of water but knew they needed to learn this important life skill. They shared their story to encourage water safety awareness.
