In an effort to save school construction projects in the city, Mayor Bloomberg (R-NY) is enlisting the help of city officials and political supporters.
The battle for more education funding from the state has been going on for months. Last week, the Department of Education put several construction projects on hold until the city can get more funding from the state.
Bloomberg will send representatives to community board meetings where projects are located. The representatives will urge community board members to lobby Albany for increases in school construction aid. Several meetings and public forums will be held throughout the month of March for residents to attend.
