Roosevelt Islander Online: You’re Invited To Roosevelt Island Political Engagement Group Virtual Zoom Fireside Chat With NYC Council Candidate Billy Freeland Monday March 29

As previously reported:

Joyce Short and Ellen Polivy, two long-time Roosevelt Island activists,
founded the Political Engagement Group (PEG) in order to revive Franklin
Delano Roosevelt’s concept of “Fireside Chats,” right here on Roosevelt
Island. Their aim is to provide voters on the Upper Eastside and Roosevelt
Island with a personal view of the people, their platforms, and their
interests in our communities, in order to help their neighbors make
enlightened decisions when they cast their votes on June 22nd.

“What better place to recreate FDR’s concept that began 88 years ago, almost
to the very day we’ll begin; Monday, March 15th at 8:00 PM,” said Joyce
Short. “We’ll be interviewing candidates each Monday and Wednesday evening,
at either 7:30 or 8 PM, for Mayor, Borough President, District Attorney,
City Council, and Democratic District Leader….

The next PEG Fireside Chat is 8 PM Monday, March 29, with
Billy Freeland, a
Democratic Party candidate to represent Roosevelt Island and the UES in NYC
Council District 5.
