District 36

Robert E. Cornegy, Jr.

Bedford Stuyvesant, Northern Crown Heights

BROOKLYN, NY – NYC Council Member Robert E. Cornegy, Jr. (D-36) released the following statement today in response to the federal government’s lack of action in addressing heat and hot water outages at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn:

“While the Metropolitan Detention Center is under the sole jurisdiction of the federal government, it is no less concerning to me as a local Brooklyn elected official to see human beings suffer with a lack of heat and hot water during the coldest days of winter.
