Senator Kirsten Gillibrand talks affordable housing, climate change at Brooklyn town hall


Brooklynites and the local elected officials who represent them filled the seats at LIU Brooklyn’s Kimball Auditorium on Aug. 30 as Senator Kirsten Gillibrand held a town hall meeting, one of a series of such meetings she’s held in New York City this month.

“The reason why I’m doing this town hall in Brooklyn is because for me to do my job well, I need to deal directly from you,” the longtime senator said. “I need to hear what’s going on in the community, what your biggest concerns are, what your biggest worries are and what solutions are working and what solutions aren’t working.”
