Councilmember Robert Cornegy (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant) announced that a town hall meeting with Mayor Bill de Blasio that he was scheduled to moderate on Wednesday, Jan. 25, has been postponed. The meeting will instead take place on Feb. 8 at the same time and place as originally scheduled: at P.S. 23, located at 545 Willoughby Ave., at 7 p.m.

The mayor will answer questions from the audience.

“Although the mayor has visited Bedford-Stuyvesant with me in the past, this will be his first town hall meeting with us. District 36 constituents and other stakeholders have many concerns. On Wednesday, residents and business owners will have the mayor’s full attention to express their opinions and discuss important issues. I look forward to the mayor providing answers along with his plans to further assist the vibrant Bedford-Stuyvesant community,” Cornegy said in a statement.

The town hall meeting is hosted by Cornegy, Borough President Eric Adams, U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, state Sen. Velmanette Montgomery and Assemblymember Tremaine Wright.

The event is co-sponsored by Community Board 3, Restoration Plaza and the Bridge Street Development Corporation.

Seating is limited and an RSVP is required. The deadline is Feb. 6 at 5 p.m. Email [email protected] or call 212-788-1369.
