Sources Confirm Arrests & Ongoing Investigation Into NYCHA Kickback Scheme

When: Monday, August 13, 2018

Where: Sources Confirm Arrests & Ongoing Investigation Into NYCHA Kickback Scheme

NYCHA is BACK in the news.... From Kings County Politics.com: Arrests have already been made and there is an ongoing investigation into a massive kickback scheme involving New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) jobs to repair Superstorm Sandy damage, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation. KCP first reported the kickback scheme last Friday as happening in Coney Island, but has learned since it is a citywide investigation involving construction companies and nefarious characters known on the street as “the coalition,” getting low-income individuals on NYCHA job sites at prevailing wages for kickback “donations.” Sources say the city’s Department of Investigation (DOI) is involved in the investigation. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is also looking through several complaints regarding the investigation. Read full article here...

Petition to Bring Back the B71 Bus

When: Apr 19, 2018-Apr 19, 2019

Where: Online

Bring back our bus! Restore the B71 with a new link through Red Hook to Manhattan Posted on October 10, 2017 Brooklynites were hit hard in 2010 when the MTA eliminated the B71, which ran along Union Street, and was a lifeline for seniors, students, and families. To this day, every time I visit the Eileen Dugan Senior Center, they have a very clear message: “Bring back our bus!” Despite economic recovery and significant population growth along the route, the line has never been restored, leaving thousands of riders stranded. Meanwhile, nearby residents of Red Hook remain in a transit desert, despite physical proximity to Manhattan. That’s why neighbors are rallying to demand the B71+ -- a new bus route for Brooklyn that will revive the cross-Gowanus B71 with a new link through Red Hook to Lower Manhattan. If you agree, please sign the B71+ petition today:
