Squadron's Community Convention

Local State Senator for our 25th District, Daniel Squadron, is holding his 4th annual Community Convention next weekend, Sunday, April 22nd. Though many decisions affecting Cobble Hill are made at the state level, this is a chance to raise concerns and questions face-to-face and make certain your elected rep knows what issues to prioritize with his colleagues in Albany.

Additionally, MTA Chairman and CEO Joseph Lhota will join as a keynote speaker to share his thoughts on NYC's transit system and how riders can engage to make it work better today and help plan for its future. Last year, more than 250 community members attended and offered valuable input on everything from school overcrowding and park planning to ethics reform and tenant rights.  The great ideas discussed in these small group sessions shaped Daniel's work over the last year and will continue to do so next year.
