‘Talk With Eric’ Series is Administration’s Second Town Hall Series, Following Eight Successful Community Conversations on Public Safety Last Year
NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced the launch of “Talk with Eric” — the administration’s second series of neighborhood-specific community conversations. This series of at least nine town halls follows 2022’s highly successful series of eight “Community Conversations on Public Safety,” where Mayor Adams and dozens of leaders in the Adams administration engaged in dialogues with community members in each of the eight New York City Police Department patrol boroughs. “Talk with Eric” community conversations will be neighborhood-specific and allow New Yorkers to engage with members of the Adams administration on a wide variety of issues. The series will kick off later this month and continue through 2023.
“I always say I’m an on-the-ground mayor, and engaging with everyday New Yorkers is how I’m able to hear about the issues that matter most to the people who make New York the greatest city in the world,” said Mayor Adams. “I’m excited to launch our second series of town halls and talk to thousands of New Yorkers about the issues affecting them every day. Our team will continue to make sure that this is the most accessible mayoral administration in city history.”
“The Community Affairs Unit is eager to expand the community conversation series so New Yorkers can discuss all the issues that are most important to them with the mayor and city government leadership,” said Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit Commissioner Fred Kreizman. “We look forward to continuing to engage with our neighbors across all five boroughs.”
Mayor Adams and administration officials plan to host at least nine town halls as part of the series this year, beginning later this month. The town halls will be held in neighborhoods in all five boroughs.
Mayor Adams’ series of eight “Community Conversations on Public Safety” last year were hosted in each patrol borough — Bronx, Brooklyn South, Brooklyn North, Manhattan South, Manhattan North, Queens South, Queens North, and Staten Island. In total, more than 70 administration officials, including the mayor, engaged with approximately 2,000 members of the public.
