Youth Violence Prevention Steering Committee
Last Friday, the Council voted to create a Youth Violence Prevention Steering Committee. The vote was unanimous, save for Council Member Don Samuels, who appropriately abstained due to the fact that his wife will be serving on the committee.
I will serve on the committee, as will the Mayor, Police Chief Dolan and Health Commissioner Gretchen Musicant.
I am very excited about this opportunity to craft a constructive, preventative approach for addressing one of the largest problems our city faces. I'm thrilled that the Mayor has decided to actively engage in this process, and I'm looking forward to working with the amazing people we've been able to recruit for this group. I expect great things.
