MOMENTS AGO, Resolution 549, asking Governor Cuomo to veto Port Ambrose, passed in a vote held by the NY City Council Committee on Environmental Protection. That means it will now go to a floor vote at Thursday’s main City Council meeting! We’re up to 30 cosigners now! Well ahead of the 26 signers needed to pass the measure, but can we get that number even higher?
Please join us at City Hall Park at 12 noon on Thursday for a pre-meeting event. We’ll greet council members as they arrive to thank those who have already signed on, and encourage the rest to vote YES on Reso 549! Please gather at both the east and west entrances of City Hall plaza; look for Kim, Patrick or Clare when you arrive. Please bring photo ID to gain entrance. We’ll ask you to hold thank you signs and greet the council members as they arrive, so bring your biggest smile! We’ll go inside when the meeting starts (at 1pm) to watch the Reso get passed!
MORE LEGISLATIVE GOOD NEWS: Last week, the anti-TPP Resolution passed in the Council. PLUS, a resolution to shut down Indian Point will be introduced on Thursday as well. Given the fire this past weekend, that couldn’t come a minute too soon. Don’t miss this important day at City Hall––see you Thursday!
