Residents of Bed Stuy will get the chance to talk with Mayor Bill de Blasio and other elected officials representing their district about whatever issues they feel are most pressing in their community at an upcoming town hall meeting.
The Bed Stuy town hall will be open to any topic. It’s the 17th in a series of town halls held all over the city since de Blasio became mayor, a spokesperson from his office told Brownstoner.
At least two others have been held in Brooklyn, in Bay Ridge and East Flatbush, according to NY1.
The event will feature a number of officials representing District 36, including U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries, State Senator Velmanette Montgomery, State Assembly Member Tremaine Wright — formerly Community Board 3’s longtime chair — and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.
New York City Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr. will moderate.
The town hall meeting is cosponsored by Community Board 3, the Bed Stuy Restoration Corporation, and the Bridge Street Development Corporation.
The town hall will take place Thursday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m. at P.S. 23, aka Carter G. Woodson Elementary School, which is located at 545 Willoughby Avenue. The doors will open at 6 p.m. If you are interested in attending, you must RSVP by emailing TownHallRSVP@city.nyc.gov or calling 212-788-1369.
