Village Preservation will be holding a forum with candidates for the 3rd City Council District, currently occupied by term-limited City Councilmember Corey Johnson (district map here). This will be a unique opportunity to hear from candidates about preservation, development, and planning issues in our neighborhood, and how they will deal with them as City Councilmember. Candidates so far confirmed are Erik Bottcher, Phelan Dante Fitzpatrick, Marni Halasa, Aleta LaFargue, Leslie Boghosian Murphy, and Arthur Schwartz (pictured above from left to right). There will be an opportunity for questions from the public moderated by Village Preservation.
The City Council plays an enormously important role in land use, development, and preservation issues, particularly on the local level. They are local neighborhoods’ advocates and representatives to the city government. Village Preservation will also be holding candidate forums for the 1st and 2nd council districts (East Village, NoHo, parts of Greenwich Village) in conjunction with fellow community and preservation groups.
