Your Councilman and mine for the 40th district, on the ballot as the Democratic Party candidate on November 5 against Sylvia Kinard (Rent is 2 Damn High Party) and John Kelly (Conservative Party), is holding a Community-Building Forum over at MS2 on Parkside near Nostrand. Should be a chance (as the press release states in three separate but equal sentences) a great chance to meet with folks from various agencies and have your voice be heard on a whole host of topics. The Q is a big fan of these sorts of get-together, and hopes you will show up and be a part of the magic. If you haven't met Mathieu yet, this will be a great chance - turnout is not generally huge and you should have a chance to chat. Plus, if you have an issue that is near and dear, you can bring it up here, talk to his aides after, then follow up on the phone (this is also known as "hounding" to those in the biz).
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
