Inez Dickens Strikes Back
In a strong display of leadership and concern, Council Member Inez Dickens today raised the issue of affordable housing in the Stated Council meeting in the land use vote on rezoning of College Point pointing out that there were no provisions for affordable housing.
The Council Member declared that the City Council must serve in the interests of all of the people of this city, many who are in need of affordable housing. Many of her colleagues joined her and changed their initial votes and the College Point rezoning sponsored by Council Member Avella was soundly defeated.
Council member Avella has spent a lot of time in Harlem denouncing both Council member Dickens and the 125th street rezoning and it seems turnabout is fair play.
Hey Avella learn to respect your colleagues, their respective districts, and their respective projects and perhaps they will respect you.
