With Deutsch gone and staff on way out, southern Brooklynites fear lack of city services

After southern Brooklyn Councilmember Chaim Deutsch was dismissed for tax fraud, a Council staffer began managing his office full time — but the staffer doesn’t even live in Brooklyn, making some locals worry that it’s negatively impacting constituent services. 

Walter Algarin, an employee of the Council’s Community Engagement Division, who was appointed to the post of the District Manager of Council District 48, is a resident of the Bronx, according to his Twitter profile. Sources in the office, who requested anonymity, told Brooklyn Paper that he is not a resident of the district or the borough.
