With her first State of the Borough event for the public, Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer is foregoing the traditional address format to instead hold an interactive community conversation on residents’ most pressing concerns and the initiatives the MBPO is working on to address them.
Borough President Brewer will welcome to the stage four Manhattan thought leaders to talk candidly about affordable housing, education, technology, development in the borough, police-community relations, and other issues topping her constituents’ lists of concerns:
JAIME ESTADES President, Latino Leadership Institute
GIGI LI Chair, Community Board 3
HON. H. CARL MCCALL Chair, SUNY Board of Trustees
HON. RUTH MESSINGER President, American Jewish World Service
Each of the four guests will speak with Borough President Brewer about the issues they feel are most important to quality of life in Manhattan. Collectively, these conversations will address the borough’s diversity of interests and perspectives. Audience members are invited to live-tweet questions and comments using the hashtag #SOTB2015.
Rain or shine (or snow!). Doors open 1pm, program starts 2pm. Please RSVP to attend!
