If you all would consider helping a fellow cyclist and former teammate of ours - we would be grateful. Andrew is raising funds to help find a cure for ALS which his mother Fran has. We do hope you can contribute to his ride and share this link to inspire others to contribute that would be great.
Comptroller Stringer to Host Sandy Oversight Unit Hearing in the Rockaways
New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer will host a hearing with his new Sandy Oversight Unit at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in the Rockaways on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.
The Sandy Oversight Unit is a first-of-its-kind initiative that draws upon the audit, contracts, budget and policy divisions of the Comptroller’s Office to hold government accountable in the rebuilding of New York City from Supers...torm Sandy.
Comptroller Stringer will be joined by Deputy Comptrollers from his office to hear testimony, take suggestions for audit topics and identify parts of the recovery effort that are in need of scrutiny and improvement.
The Sandy Oversight Unit will review and audit Sandy spending and programs, including a recently announced audit of the Build it Back program, identify areas where performance can be strengthened and fraud and waste can be prevented, and make recommendations to improve the rebuilding process for communities.
For more information on the hearing, please visit the comptroller's website.
Where: Mount Carmel Baptist Church, 348 Beach 71st Street, Arverne, NY
When: Tuesday, May 20, 2014. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., program runs from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
