(Click HERE for photos) Congressman Ed Towns held a public meeting this past Monday evening in Flatbush, where local residents got to voice their complaints, and discuss issues that they feel need to be dealt with. In addition to the Congressman, representatives from the NYPD, the NYC Sanitation Department, and US Postal Services, attended the meeting – which was held at a Shul on Bedford Avenue near Avenue I.
Issues regarding the post office on Nostrand, tickets issued to homeowners by the Sanitation Police – for no apparent reason, no cooperation from the NYC Parks Department regarding tree issues – as well as many other issues were addressed.
One concerned resident asked the Congressman to work on behalf of the community to secure grants for security at Yeshivos, Shuls, and other houses of worship.
Many people publicly stood up and thanked the Congressman for supporting of the State of Israel – for which he is well known.
Towns represents the 10th Congressional District of New York, encompassing the neighborhoods of East New York, Canarsie, Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Cypress Hills, Clinton Hill, Mill Basin, Midwood, downtown Brooklyn, Boreum Hill, as well as parts of Fort Greene and Williamsburg.
