B2 & B31 Service Cuts and Councilman Fidler’s Proposal

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that the petitions and protests to stop reduction of B2 and B31 bus service is spreading. At this time, there are 276 signatures at the online petition.

According to the same report in the February 5, 2009 article, Theresa Scavo of Community Board 15 is urging us to support District 46 NYC Council Member Councilman Lewis Fidler’s proposal that calls for a .0033 percent payroll tax for businesses. For those of us who may not be familiar with the proposal, you can get in contact with the Councilman at his office or check the NYC government office website (see contact information below).

There’s also a very interesting set of articles dealing with Mr. Fidler on Room Eight New York – Politics blog, Dishonor Roll: The 29 City Councilmembers Against Democracy blog, and the Why is the Press So in Love with Lew Fidler? WHEN blog (suddenly, Sheepshead Bites seems like such a short name).
