Over the holidays, CBM board members along with members of the Glendale-Middle Village Coalition and Elmhurst United worked diligently to obtain long sought after city records pertaining to the Maspeth shelter fight. Our attorneys are now reviewing the documents for completeness as well as researching ways to potentially join in the current legal action between the owners of the hotel and their landlord.
Incidentally, an attorney from Maspeth offered to obtain these records back in mid-September, but failed to follow through. We ask that all volunteers who take on a task actually commit to completing it and communicate any problems they may encounter. Doing otherwise sets the entire effort behind.
