The U.S. Open, in partnership with Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Councilmember John C. Liu, the Flushing Business Improvement District (BID) and several community organizations, announced an outreach campaign to encourage New Yorkers to apply for the over 700 temporary job opportunities available this summer during the three-week long 2009 U.S. Open Tennis Championships in Flushing.

"We have always been proud here in Queens to be the host of the U.S.

Open Tennis Championships," said Councilmember John Liu. "It's great that they are making this effort to build stronger ties with the community, and there cannot be any better way to strengthen those ties than to hire people from the local community."
