April 13: Representatives’ Joint Town Hall


The Newtown Creek and other environmental issues aren’t specifically addressed in Rep. Maloney’s outreach email, but this seems like a good forum to raise them.


Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Nydia Velazquez are hosting a joint town hall to discuss the latest federal policies affecting New York City, hear from a panel policy experts and take your questions.

The Representatives will joined by:

  • James Parrott, Ph.D., former Chief Economist of the Fiscal Policy Institute, to discuss how President Trump’s budget proposal will affect New York City;
  • Marc Jahr, Co-Chair of the New York Housing Conference Board of Directors, to discuss the latest on affordable housing;
  • Ruthie Epstein, Senior Policy Advisor, New York Civil Liberties Union, to discuss federal immigration policy.

Following remarks by the Representatives and panelists, members of the public are invited to ask questions.
