Author To Discuss Albany Politics At MBCG Meeting

This week’s Manhattan Beach Community Group meeting will host Dan Feldman, a former New York State Assemblyman  and author of a new book on Albany politics.

Feldman, a Manhattan Beach resident, was elected to the Assembly in 1980. According to his staff profile at Fordham University, between 1981 and 1998, Feldman authored over 140 laws, including New York’s Organized Crime Control Act and New York’s Megan’s Law, laws establishing the New York City Transit Corps of Engineers, the Tax Assessment Small Claims Court, the power of judges to revoke the gun licenses and seize the guns of perpetrators of domestic violence, and the right of motorists to make the Parking Violations Bureau pay them when they are harassed unreasonably.

Also at the meeting, MBCG will also hear from P.S. 195’s Principal Forman, who is going to discuss the loss of teaching positions and growing class sizes in his school.

They’ll also be discussing the bus accident that left one child dead and his mother injured earlier this month.

“This meeting is an opportunity for you to speak UP and help us find realistic solutions to keep our children safe and to help them get the best possible education,” their website states. “The MBCG can not do it alone. We need your help.”

The meeting is Wednesday night, October 20, at 8:00 p.m. in P.S. 195 (131 Irwin Street).
