Why do I say the proposals won’t have the intended effect? The activists who came up with these proposals want t . >>> READ MORE ...

Posted on 01 August 2013 by Community Voice NY

In his last week’s radio program David Greenfield hosted the debate between Kagan and Scavo, candidate for the 48th NYC Council District.
