State Senator Daniel Squadron will host a Town Hall Meeting next Thursday, December 11, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Forchelli Conference Center at the Brooklyn Law School, 205 State Street, 22nd floor (between Court Street and Boerum Place). The meeting’s topic will be “Reforming the State: Making Albany Work for Our Neighborhoods.” I never knew what an absurd stranglehold Albany has on what are local issues that should be decided locally until several years ago, when a there was a campaign to put a red light camera where traffic from Atlantic Avenue crosses to enter the LIE, in order to protect pedestrians going to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The word was that the City had reached a quota, imposed by Albany, on such cameras.
All are invited to this free event. If you plan to attend, please RSVP here.
