Mr. Mayor is coming to town.
Mayor de Blasio and Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley are hosting a town hall meeting on Monday, December 18 at 7 p.m. It will be at PS/IS 113 (78-23 87th Street).
These are the town halls where the mayor takes questions from community members. Usually, de Blasio starts off by touting some of his accomplishments, such as universal pre-k.
But issues not as favorable to his record, such as homelessness, are sure to come up. He may have to defend his new plan to create 90 shelters citywide.
Here at the Glendale Blog, we’re curious as to why the mayor decided to have the town hall just weeks before newly-elected Councilman Bob Holden takes office. Why have the town hall with Crowley when she’s out the door at the end of the year?
Note that this district is the only one where an incumbent, supported by de Blasio, lost. Not only did she lose, she lost to a challenger who explicitly ran against de Blasio’s agenda.
We think something’s up. How will Holden respond when the mayor walks in with Crowley? Will they even acknowledge the councilman-elect?
Be there to find out. RSVP by December 17 at 5 p.m. via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 212-788-4282.
