NEW YORK- Mayor Bill de Blasio and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz today announced “City Hall in Your Borough” will land in Queens on Monday, July 17. This will be the initiative’s third stop, following Staten Island and the Bronx.
Mayor de Blasio, deputy mayors, and senior Administration officials will run the city from Queens Borough Hall for a week to focus on the borough’s people and their concerns. The week will include a cabinet meeting, resource fair and town hall, as well as various stops and events throughout the borough.
“As we move City Hall from borough to borough, we hope to continue building a closer relationship between New Yorkers and their city government,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “In Queens, we will continue focusing city resources on the borough’s most pressing needs.”
“Queens welcomes the Administration to Borough Hall and the opportunity to engage on the needs and challenges unique to the World’s Borough,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. “With 2.3 million residents, there will be much ground to cover for the families of Queens.”
First Lady Chirlane McCray will also hold a series of events.
