On the signing of Intro 132, a bill that requires every city agency to webcast all public meetings.
“I thank the Mayor and Council’s leadership for making New York City the best city for the 21st Century.
For a democratic government to truly embrace openness and participation – in-person and online – open meetings are a necessity. Today, all New Yorkers and passionate advocates gain one more tool toward that ideal.
I look forward to the next Speaker to build upon these laws and continue to make New York City by the people, for the people for the 21st Century.”
– Noel Hidalgo’s statement of support on the signing of Council Member Brewer’s Intro 132, a bill that requires every city agency to webcast all public meetings.
