State Senator Daniel Squadron, whose district includes the Heights and nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods as well as lower Manhattan, is hosting a “Community Convention” on Sunday, March 15, from 3:00 to 6:00pm, at Borough of Manhattan Community College, 199 Chambers Street, just west of Greenwich. In Squadron’s words:
As part of my plan to make our state government more open and accessible than ever before, I am inviting constituents from all over my district to join me at this convention, on March 15th. At our convention, I will ask you to help me shape my priorities and strategies as I work hard for our district in this, my first year in office.
I hope you will bring your ideas, and your perspectives, on what our state government can do to improve our communities and step up more effectively to respond to these difficult times. I want your ideas on housing, on transportation, on the state budget, and on the myriad issues that we can take on to make New York a better place to live.
