Candidates and City Officials Answer Community Questions at PHRA Board Zoom Meetings Oct. 22 and 28
Park Hill residents took advantage of two opportunities in October to listen to current and potential public officials discuss their priorities and answer their questions. At a Zoom meeting on October 22, candidates for a variety of state and local offices discussed their platforms and responded to community questions. Participants, and the offices they are running for, included Andrea Stewart-Cousins (State Senate, 35th District); Nader Sayegh (State Assembly, 90th District); Mimi Rocah (Westchester County District Attorney); Nilda Morales Horowitz (Family Court Judge); and Dan Romano, Verris Shako, Karen Best, and Tom Daly (all running for City Court Judge).
On October 28, Park Hill residents joined the PHRA Board via Zoom for a meeting with the new Yonkers Police Department 3rd Precinct Captain Michael Mulvey and City Councilmembers including Tasha Diaz, John Rubbo, and Corazon Pineda-Isaac. After the officials introduced themselves and answered several prepared questions, residents were invited to ask their own questions. Topics covered at the meetings included racial and social justice, crime, traffic, sanitation, taxes, and local development. We will be posting video recordings of both meetings soon so those who missed them can watch the discussions, and will follow up with you as we get more answers and results from our leaders. Meanwhile, minutes of the meeting can be found here.
Thanks so much to the Park Hill neighbors who participated in these events. Showing public officials that Park Hill residents are engaged and passionate about their community helps us to have a bigger voice at City Hall and beyond. We will continue to work with city, county, and state government officials and will invite the community to participate whenever possible.
