Issue Forums Scheduled
May 14th, 2010

To dig deep into the nitty-gritty of the City Charter, the Charter Revision Commission will host five issue forums on specific areas it plans to focus on.

They announced the schedule yesterday. Just a refresher, the topics are: term limits, voter participation, government structure, public integrity and land use. There will be one forum in every borough. First up, the ever-popular term limits issue, which will be at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The full list is after the jump.

More people must learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant imagine youre no more fashionable because you positively have the gift.
