Culture on the Cheap
REMINDER: Parks & Waterfront Committee Meeting Tonight!
Filed under: 11211, 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Although I have posted this item already I feel compelled to remind everyone that this evening the Parks & Waterfront Committee will be convening at Williamsburg’s very own Swinging 60’s Center! The primary topic of this forum will be two presentations regarding the concerts scheduled to grace north Brooklyn’s parks this upcoming summer. On that note— and despite the fact I have listed several questions worth asking already— I feel behooved to posit yet one more:
Is it appropriate for a Community Board member— and a member of the Parks Committee at that (this being Dewey Thompson)— to give a presentation on the behalf of a not-for-profit organization (that being Open Space Alliance North Brooklyn) which is shilling concerts?
This strikes yours truly as a pretty serious conflict of interest. Just a thought.
