B.P. Brewer Conducts Small Business Walks With Business Owners, Provide PPE And Census Materials

Today, Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer will conduct a series of small business walks throughout every community board district in Manhattan. Brewer will speak to small business owners about their needs and concerns and provide them with additional PPE and census materials for distribution, and personally provide follow-up referrals and services.

In May, Borough President Brewer was appointed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to the Regional Control Room for New York City, where she advises the Governor and the executive chamber on re-opening the city and conditions on the ground.
