It’s Monday, March 21, 2022. Before we jump into the upcoming events, I wanted to highlight a few announcements that I thought you’d like to know about:
Wednesday, 4/6, at 6 pm, my office is hosting our monthly housing clinic with the Goddard Riverside Law Project and TakeRoot Justice. Register here for the presentation on “construction-as-harassment” and to get connected with a lawyer following the clinic.
The next hearing for the Council committee I chair, Oversight and Investigations, is taking place on 4/11 at 10 am, jointly with the Committee on Public Safety, regarding the NYPD Inspector General.
For a full list of Council committee hearings, I’m linking to the Legistar website, which posts upcoming hearings and agendas— but in reverse chronological order!
