Joyce Short and Ellen Polivy, two long-time Roosevelt Island activists,
founded the Political Engagement Group (PEG) in order to revive Franklin
Delano Roosevelt’s concept of “Fireside Chats,” right here on Roosevelt
Island. Their aim is to provide voters on the Upper Eastside and Roosevelt
Island with a personal view of the people, their platforms, and their
interests in our communities, in order to help their neighbors make
enlightened decisions when they cast their votes on June 22nd.
