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.
