“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.
