Record Turnout at PSA1 Residents Organize for Action

Record numbers turned out on Thursday night, September 26th for the PSA1 meeting.  Unfortunately the police representatives were busy with a crime event elsewhere so Pete Specos had to conduct the meeting on their behalf.  Attendance was unusually high as a result of the Town Hall meeting on September 19th, on the subject of drug recovery/boarding houses in Frankford where people were told about the PSA meetings.  Many Frankford residents are still unaware that you can meet with the police directly once a month to talk about your specific problems.

Residents from Worth, Ditman, Kinsey, Griscom and Penn Streets actively discussed the problems that beset their areas and resolved to work together to demand solutions.  The end result was to organize neighbors to attend the Frankford Civic Association meeting on October 3rd as a show of solidarity.

If you want to make progress on these issues in your area, you are urged to attend the Frankford Civic Association meeting at 7PM at Aria Hospital on October 3rd.
