Two more human remains were recovered at 11 Water Street



At Community Board 1 even though we were only given 1 minute each to speak after Ed Skyler and his team gave a 30 minute presentation we were able to convince the majority of Community 1 to reject the Resolution supported by the mayor to deny access to JPAC for the current search.



We were also able to convince a majority of members of Community Board 1 to approve a resolution to ask the mayor to seek the assistance of JPAC in the current search.



This was only made possible by the efforts of family members who have come to these meetings and voiced their concerns.



Had the Community Board only heard the mayor’s side of the argument there is no doubt that the original resolution supporting the mayor’s position would have passed.



A special thanks to Community Board 1 for listening and doing the right thing.



Next step is to have Councilman Gerson submit his resolution calling on the mayor to bring in JPAC.



So now we have:



Most of our elected officials



The 9/11 families



The Lower Manhattan Community



Hopefully now the mayor will listen.
