Brad Hoylman, CB2 Call Police : Is this a Violation of Open Meetings ? (CB2 Omnibus St. Vincent's Committee Meeting)
On June 14, 2010, Brad Hoylman, as chair of Manhattan Community Board 2's Omnibus St. Vincent's Committee, presided over a public meeting to discuss a proposal for a first aid clinic to replace St. Vincent's Hospital. With no hospital now in the Lower West Side of Manhattan, everybody is concerned about healthcare.
After one senior citizen became upset, Community Board 2 called 911 and asked for police to come to the meeting. Was the call for police a way to intimidate senior citizens from asking healthcare questions ? In your comments, please discuss whether the calling of police was a violation of New York's open meetings law.

What an outrage. If Brad Hoylman runs for public office, will he call the NYPD on every citizen, who complains ?
