Stringer, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and Assemblymember Mark Gjonaj and former Assemblymember Stephen Kaufman joined together with the Albanian-American Society Foundation and the Sons and Daughters of Albania in America today to honor four distinguished individuals in memoriam for their contributions to the cause of Albanian and Kosovar Independence.
NEW YORK, NY--It’s time for City Hall to stop wasting taxpayer dollars appealing stop and frisk ruling in Floyd, and start working to bring fundamental and overdue reform to the NYPD. We should not have to wait until Jan. 1st -- stop and frisk as currently practiced is unconstitutional and must end.
NEW YORK, NY- "The Board of Elections, which has already made a mess of counting ballots, has now made it hard, if not impossible, to read them. New Yorkers will need a magnifying class to decipher the tiny, 6-point font on the November 5 ballots, a blunder that could drive voters away from the polls. It’s astonishing that other American cities have figured out a way to comply with the Voting Rights Act by printing clear, legible ballots in all languages, but here in the nation’s largest city the BOE still hasn’t got a clue.”
NEW YORK, NY – Manhattan Borough President today announced a $1 million allocation that will complete the preservation of the historic Fire Watchtower in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park—the last such 19th century structure standing in New York City. The Borough President’s allocation was the final financial piece needed to finish a restoration project that began in the early 1990s.
NEW YORK, NY-- The City Council today stood up for the civil rights of all New Yorkers by overriding the Mayor's ill-advised veto of the historic Community Safety Act. This victory was years in the making-the product of grassroots support from New Yorkers in all five boroughs who responded to the excesses of stop-and-frisk, and the surveillance of Muslim communities, with a forceful call for change.
