Where was Crowley?
June 25th, 2010

Noticeably absent from last night’s late night budget announcement was Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley, the chair of the council’s Fire and Criminal Justice Services Committee.

Since a key piece of the budget agreement was saving 20 fire companies from closure, we wondered why the councilmember wasn’t there.

We just checked in with her spokesperson Meredith Burak, who said Crowley had to run back to her kids and had several night events. Crowley’s office did have time to send out a release before Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the budget deal. The release had this headline: “CROWLEY DECLARES VICTORY OVER SAVING FIREHOUSES.”
