  1. I would love to meet with you guys and gals but i teach at LaGuardia Thirsday nights this summer from 5:45-9:00. Please keep me informed. I am working on homes for the Homeless. The social justice committee of retirees passed a resolution in support of new sensible public housing June 18th. It is supposed to more to the next level and be hopefully voted on in september. Would like to meet with everyone at 4:00 july 23rd. Can I get a chance to put fprward the agenda of Fiorello Homes for the Homeless? I have college students and graduates involved helping me. would love to have some of you come aboard on this fight. Our Mayor’s “affordable” housing program kis a farce although he is making progress on our current pub;lic housing which Giuliana and Bloomberg totally neglected. However, he is following the Bloomberg agenda and allowing private developers come into public housing land and build market value and “affordable” housing on public property. 421A must be stopped. let’s talk more. Go to our website Fiorello Homes for the Homeless. Planning a meeting at LaGuardia from 1:00-3:00 July 18th – a saturday. Look us up. Jerry f
