John Lisyanskiy, a candidate for the 47th District Council seat, is doing everything he can to lend a hand to the disable and elderly residents of 7714 Bay Parkway, who have been trapped without elevator service for three weeks.

The candidate expressed his frustration in a press release.

“This is outrageous. For the past three weeks, the lives of our elderly and disabled community have been endangered because of the broken elevator in the building. Having this continue for so long is simply unacceptable, and nor should it have to be a way of life for our community. Today I am calling on the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) to send an emergency repair team to restore the elevator service in this building,” Lisyanskiy said in the release.

As we’ve previously reported, Lisyanskiy is vying for the Democratic ticket in a crowded field that includes Mark Treyger and Todd Dobrin, among others.
