“Failure to take prompt disciplinary action has allowed Pantaleo to spend the past five years living off the taxpayers’ dime; meanwhile, his employment has been an affront to Eric Garner’s family and black and brown communities,” said Councilman I.

“Our electrical infrastructure is already vulnerable to disruptions, as we saw with last month’s heatwave related outages impacting large parts of Brooklyn and Queens,” said Council Member I.

When Councilman I. Daneek Miller first proposed the idea, he stressed the fact that many of the suburban working-class neighborhoods in Southeast Queens are not near a subway station. As a New York City homeowner and taxpayer who doesn’t live near a subway station but who lives near multiple LIRR stations, I find the Atlantic Ticket a great way for outer borough residents to get to the city at a fair cost.”

On Wednesday, Council Members Helen Rosenthal (D-Manhattan) and I. Daneek Miller (D-Queens) introduced two pieces of legislation, one of which would make it illegal to possess or dispose of unfinished receivers, i.e., the gun frames to which the other components attach.
