The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

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.

As if on cue, Councilman Eugene is good to go! Turns out the poster is boilerplate!

That means that by coming to one of the below meetings, perhaps you can convince the good CM to fund projects that have great meaning for the nabe. My experience last year with PB was that you need to get people out to vote, meaning organizing is a key element. The meetings on the poster are likely informational and to exchange ideas. Be there, or miss out!

In case your browser won't let you click on that image, the times and places are:

Grace Church 1800 Bedford Sept 20 5PM - 7:30 PM
St. Gabriel's 331 Hawthorne Street Sept 28 6:30 - 9PM
St. Paul's 157 St. Paul's Place Oct 7 6:30 - 9PM

If you are of the Devil and unable to enter a Christian church, I'm sorry there is no alternative site for you to participate in Participatory Budgeting. However, you might best be served by moving to Texas anyway.

Funny - I got an e-mail from Laurie Cumbo on this & I don't live in her district but nada from the good "doctor" Nevertheless I shall be there!

I can't read the poster online. Could you post the places, dates and times of the participatory budget meetings? Thanks.

If you click on the picture it should pop out as its own picture, then you can zoom in. But I'll add the dates and times to the post anyway.
