Statement by Real Estate Board of New York President John H. Banks on the New York City Charter Revision Commission

"We commend the New York City Charter Revision Commission for inviting New Yorkers to participate in a series of upcoming public hearings in each of the five boroughs.  We also want to thank the commission for their thoughtful decision to defer the more complex proposed changes to the City Charter and allow for more time to give all proposals appropriate consideration. We support the Commission’s goal to adopt new methods that will ensure the City’s 59 Community Boards have broad, diverse, and effective representation."

- John H. Banks, REBNY President
