Response to Bloomberg Comments Politicizing Boston Attack
In a letter sent today, Council Members Brad Lander and Jumaane D. Williams called on Mayor Michael Bloomberg to reconsider comments he made at a Tuesday press conference that politicized the attacks at the Boston Marathon. The Council Members are sponsors of the Community Safety Act, a package of four bills that would protect New Yorkers from discriminatory policing and would create an Inspector General for the NYPD.
What does your neighborhood need? An improved park? Safer streets? New school technology? In participatory budgeting, you give your ideas and City Councilmember Brad Lander has set aside $1 million to fund them. And your votes will decide which projects get funded.
