Participatory Budgeting Meeting Tomorrow

Featured

Participatory Budgeting is coming to Brooklyn’s City Council District 35, home to Crow Hill. Below is a letter from Council Member Laurie Cumbo, who is responsible for bringing PB to our District:


Dear Friend,

I am proud and excited to launch Participatory Budgeting in the 35th Council District. This process will be an incredible opportunity for the community to come together to discuss how they would like to spend $1 million dollars within the community. The success of this endeavor can only happen with your assistance. I want to make sure that the diversity of the District is incorporated every step of the way and I certainly need your support.

One of my goals for Participatory Budgeting is to identify new leaders and or the next generation of leaders. Your leadership throughout Brooklyn is undeniable and I would be so honored if you would participate in this process and also bring a new leader to the table to serve as a Delegate to the Participatory Budgeting Process to represent different neighborhoods, segments of the community (i.e., schools, art and culture, transportation, etc.) and the many voices of the neighborhood. Please let me know the name of the person that you would like to become a part of this process and a short paragraph about their professional affiliations and relevant work within the community.

The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 9 at Medgar Evers College, Nadeen Lawe Activity Center, 1650 Bedford Avenue 2nd floor, Room B2024 Brooklyn, NY 11225 from 6:30PM – 9:30PM. All of the relevant information pertaining to the responsibilities of a delegate as well as the upcoming meetings is attached for your reference. It is important to note that all delegates would be required at all three meetings and or workshops. 

I look forward to your response by the close of business on Thursday, September 4.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact my Legislative and Budget Director, Drew Gabriel at (212) 788-7081 or district35pb@gmail.com

Yours in Partnership,
Laurie A. Cumbo
Member of the New York City Council
