Monday: Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association Meeting


Last week we screwed up, and accidentally posted that the Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association would meet on, er, Labor Day. Well, we corrected it as soon as we could, but here we’re reposting to make it quite clear.

Also, there has been a change in their list of speakers. The new info is as follows:

The Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association invites residents to attend their next meeting on Monday, September 10, at 8:00 p.m. at Public School 195, 131 Irwin Street between Shore Boulevard and Oriental Avenue.

The group is hosting a “meet and greet” with certain political candidates, including Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, District Leader Mike Geller and congressional candidate Hakeem Jeffries. State Senator Eric Adams, who is running for Borough President in 2013, was originally scheduled to attend, but had a personal conflict.

The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.

To learn more, call (917) 747-5863.

  1. I’m just saying:After finding out that Hakeem Jeffries, the Democrat for congress in the 8th district, was invited to speak this evening, I put a call into the association. While I think a candidate should be allowed to express his views to constituents, I do believe an even playing field should be allotted to all.  I was told I would not be allowed to speak in the same manner as Hakeem Jeffries. “It’s an open event and you can attend” said the event coordinator.
    So much for an equal playing field!
