Last Wednesday, June 18, new Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson stuck to a campaign promise and went deep into the heart of Brownsville, Brooklyn, to talk with the everyday people there.
Taking 10 executives from his Jay Street office to P.S. 323, Thompson held a “Brownsville Matters Town Hall” meeting, where he engaged the people in all the issues they brought up, on all levels. It was well attended. Folks seemed to respect the experience.
Thompson will be holding similar Town Hall meetings in Coney Island, Red Hook and Bed-Stuy.
