"Meet & Greet" - COREY JOHNSON For NYC Council

Corey Johnson telling what he is all about

On June 26th, at the home of Brian Delshad, hosts Artyom Matusov, Jay Coleman, David Castleman, Charles Serotoff, Al Taveras, Baruch Shemtov, Ted Anastasiou & Brian Delshad gathered a group of their friends for a Meet & Greet with Corey Johnson as he runs for New York City Council.

A renowned activist for the LGBT rights movement and current Community Board 4 Chairman, openly gay ex-high school football captain, whose "coming out" when he was 18 years old was documented in the NY Times, Corey Johnson is running for District 3's Council seat.

This is a critical race – the seat Corey is running for covers most of Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, Midtown, the West Village and Soho, and it’s being vacated by Christine Quinn as she runs for mayor. The West Side of Manhattan is going to change a lot in the next few years, and it deserves a representative as passionate and progressive as Corey. Johnson said he would need to work closely with the City’s Office of Housing Preservation and Development on land use applications and the shortage of affordable housing which will become much more aggravated with the imminent advent of the 7 Subway Train extension
