Council Member - Domenic M. Recchia

For months during campaign season, we heard from Rep. Michael Grimm's opponent that the congressman wouldn't "be at the table" -- wouldn't be able to contribute in real ways to Congress. Domenic M. Recchia Jr., the Democrat who challenged the congressman, said the trial for the 20-count indictment hanging over Grimm's head would distract him from serving his constituents and would distance GOP leaders from the Staten Island representative.

Manhattan: Friends of Animals read with dismay the op-ed by City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley . It implies that carriage horses are some of the best regulated, cared for and most beloved animals in the city.
City Council members and advocates told the Fire Department of New York on Wednesday that it must boost the number of female firefighters beyond the current 44 out of 10,500. "In the year 2014, when women serve on the front lines of combat in our armed services, there is no reason for this lack of women in the FDNY," said Council member Elizabeth Crowley of Queens, who chaired a hearing on examining ways to increase the number of female firefighters.

Representative - Jerrold Nadler

Party: Democratic

Rep. Jerrold Nadler said that anyone blaming the deaths of two New York City police officers over the weekend on Mayor Bill de Blasio is causing "more discord and strife." "Those who have cynically and erroneously blamed Saturday's tragedy on the Mayor's previous acknowledgements of the challenges in community-police relations, or on peaceful and respectful protestors, do nothing to help move the conversation forward and in fact, foment more discord and strife," Nadler said in a statement.

Officials Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Mayor Bill de Blasio, City Council members Laurie Cumbo and Brad Lander, Sen.Charles Schumer and Assemblywoman Yvette Clarke were on hand at City Hall back in November to hail the earlier announcement that Brooklyn was one of the finalists to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention When crowning a prospective leader of the free world, there's no place better to be than the County of Kings. While many, like myself, have been filled with anticipation ever since, there have also been a myriad of detracting mumblings regarding potential problems the convention could cause for New Yorkers - from traffic and a lack of hotel rooms to a loss of revenue for local businesses.
