Like most cities around the World Mumbai has started rolling out pop bike lanes to accommodate I mean I've I've seen a huge increase in the number of black as people sort of shook public transport during the pandemic but the city is taking it one step further than pop up bike lanes are going.

But a bit of a backlash Montrose in some places over the provision ice lanes. Maybe, this is the city that actually could have used simple counselors because because to me, it seems like there's been a little bit of a breakdown in communication in Montreal or at least certainly in terms of engagement with with the local communities. Said, they're rolling out temporary black lanes as many cities are but. A stretch in in Montreal on a believe it's it's not street Notre Dame street West outside a few venerable restaurants and establishments.

The thing that's interesting about this story is clearly there wasn't enough consultation and and perhaps perhaps the solution. That I propose wasn't necessarily suitable for that part of the city which clearly is relying on people unfortunately, not unfortunately, the reality is that lots of people in the city still need to be able to drive their cars and drive to these restaurants and and perhaps a better solution that balanced bike lanes with car parking motive might have served the solution that.

Election Officials Declare Winners in Two New York Democratic Primaries After Federal Judge Finds Voters Disenfranchised

"Of Election certified the results of the June 23rd primary earlier today. It comes one day after a federal judge issued an order directing board of elections across the state. To re examine their absentee ballot totals to consider votes tossed out for missing a postmark as long as they were received by June 25th. It's just the latest twist in New York's pandemic primary, which saw a tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots, compared to 2016. Joining us now W. N Y City Hall and politics reporter Bridget Bergen Ridge it let's start with what happened today. The Board of Election certified the results of a primary that took place six weeks ago. That means they finished counting. But why did it take so long? Jamie, You said it right there that we saw that tenfold increase in the number of absentee ballots. People really were taking advantage of this expanded absentee ballot system that Governor Cuomo Did through executive order because of the pandemic, and then the counting process associated with it was very methodical. You know. Absentee ballots can be rejected for a lot of reasons. Missing signatures were among the biggest issues, but Another issue. We first reported here at WNYC and Gothamist was related to ballots invalidated for missing postmarks. Two candidates and 14 voters sued the state Board of Elections and Governor Cuomo, arguing that voters were being disenfranchised through no fault of their own due to missing postmarks. Absentee ballots needed to be postmarked by June 23rd and arrive at the board of Elections by June 30th to count and there was a big decision in that case late last night. Give us a quick overview of that lawsuit. Last week, there was a two day evidentiary hearing where witnesses testified about how the Board of elections handled this flood of absentee ballots and how the United States Post office process them. Some of what we learned was pretty shocking. Like the fact that the Board of elections dropped off more than 34,000 ballots to the post office to mail to voters the day before the primary. That meant voters would need to get that ballot in the mail on June 23rd rushed to a post office box before five if they had any chance of mailing it with a postmark. To make it eligible. And beyond that, there was evidence introduced that showed that more ballots in Brooklyn were invalidated for missing postmarks than in any other borough. Wow. Then tell us more about the ruling issued last night. So Judge Annalisa Torahs presided over this case in the southern district. She found the plaintiff's arguments more persuasive that ballots were in fact treated differently in different parts of the city. She ordered the New York State Board of Elections to direct all local boards to count otherwise valid absentee ballots, missing postmarks as long as they were received by June 25th 2 days after the primary. She also criticized the state's argument that it didn't intentionally disenfranchise voters where they basically pointed to failures by the post office and tried to place the blame on them. She wrote quote. The Constitution is not so toothless. When voters have been provided with absentee ballots image assured that their votes on those ballots will be counted. The state cannot ignore a later discovered a systemic problem that arbitrarily renders those ballots invalid. What does it mean Bridget that the city Board of Election certified the election results? Isn't that a violation of the judge's order? Well. The city also directed its staff in each borough to prepare to count the ballots that qualify under the judge's order. And they said, they're just awaiting direction from the state Board of elections to go ahead and do that. Okay, so assuming the order stands, could it change the outcome of any Racists? You know, is one of the plaintiffs lawyers, Remmy Green said at a press conference this morning. We don't know what we don't know yet certainly one of the plaintiffs Raj Patel, who is a candidate in New York's 12th Congressional District, which covers parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. He's hopeful that this will help because he's currently trailing Carolyn Maloney abi about 3700 votes, but at this point, it's not really clear there are enough votes to change that race. However, there could be other races and other parts of the state that we don't know about. And one of the plaintiff interveners in this case, Maria Coffer who ran for District leader AA position in Queens. She only lost two City council member Karen Causal. It's by about 100 boats, so we'll see if there's anything that changes their 100 votes. Wow. What was the reaction from the State Board of Elections have they signaled any plans to appeal? So I have yet to hear from anyone from the State Board of Elections or the New York Attorney general's office who is representing the state. In this matter. I will note that one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs basically warned the state and governor Cuomo against appealing. Here's attorney, Ali Nagy. Me. Governor Cuomo. Your legacy is on the line. If you will peel this, you'll lose in the appeal, and you will be another second round suppressor votes, and that is not what the governor needs. Now, if the state did appeal, obviously, that matter would go before the Court of Appeals, and it's worth noting. Earlier this summer, this same judge Analisa Torres ruled against the state Board of elections. In another election law case, she overturned their decision to cancel the Democratic presidential primary. That case went before the Court of Appeals and her ruling stands.

But we still want to look at the policy to see how we can improve it to further tighten down on instances where no knock warrants or used our body camera policy is pretty extensive. But we want to improve transparency around. How and rather why officers disabled and increase potentially the consequences for officers who disable their body camera. There's consent to search On. We want to increase our transparency and make that more clear. There's some forms that we give. People were supposed to give people. When a police officer is going to search, we need to make sure those are readable. But they're translated if necessary, that their clear to the public There's several others, but I'll posit there and see what your doctor I wanted to ask about is their eyes there anyway, to deal with the fact that the police are often called upon to do things that they really Shouldn't be doing to deal with mental health issues, for instance. Yes, absolutely in the police has been Over the last many decades really over my lifetime, at least with the de funding of mental health on the lack of support and access from many people. Even most people across the country to adequate mental health support services so police officers become Therapist they become marriage counselors fails to become Park rangers and other forms of not what we would normally called policing in the past. And I think our officers were also appreciate not being being called on to do the kind of work that isn't necessarily policing work, so We're looking at how we might be able to use our eight social workers that Aaron, the solid city Police Department, which is something unique to our police department, compared to others Round ST How can they go out with that?

So this is actually becoming more price, efficient option and we have because we have.

"Qualifying for how the the the Aging out of that better integration nation between The the The government h governance which is under one deputy mayor and the housing using governance which is another deputy frankly they were not talking to each other or not agreeing on on The Path forward for the last year. So you do not have that you know particularly well integrated as an example. There was the bill by my colleague. Raphael Talamante got BRONC- That would create a certain percentage or set aside unit supportive housing portfolio Fifteen percent. That was it's not. You know the the housing folks and at city all were not in favor of that And but it was it had it. It's a big. It's a big piece of allow people to move out of shelter because you need the affordable housing stock on that to be available so You know there's a there's a lot of of those kinds of common sense Solutions that we think that that one of the things about this report it was The staff they worked at the reason why it took so long to do was because there was such an in depth amount of of research that went learning to live and thoughts on this and so staff Laura Hope uphold Ramstad. That's a really good good solid people on that worked on this Engaged with with providers with advocate And and the issues that actually league we're talked about issues that came up or the issues that ended up in the report supposed to as opposed to saying okay. You're all that stuff but at the end of the day we're only gonNA put in the stuff that we think we can pay for or we think that You know we think is Is is on our priority priority. Everything that all the advocate all of the providers of For you know years I want to sort of ask one. Follow up there and then I think we're gonNA take a listener caller too. But you know I it strikes me in the report in and what you're saying that this is sort of about where her broader policy meet sort of management and execution and implementation and re evaluating programs as they go in tweaking them. So you know to me a lot of this looks like you know kind of as you said a lot of this is things that are already in place but it's it's tweaking them and making them work better and you know it strikes me in in reading through this that a lot of this seems to be about better. You're just better run city government you know agencies talking to each other more as you said said maybe a streamlined deputy mayor in charge of all these housing slash homelessness issues. But that a lot of it is really about government just working better with the policies policies that are in place. I don't know if you wanNA comment stuff gets caught up in red tape You know for for extremely long long periods of time so allowing Aging out of the runaway and homeless youth or in the runaway homeless youth system which is under The agency E. Y.. CD's computer elements VHS. For whatever reasons and do I see what volume while. They can't qualify for Abacha so it can't get into You know whatever. Housing is out there because They have no battery get them out and and they agreed years ago that they would that that would change. Well they'll hasn't changed meeting last last week before with a bunch of the advocates and providers and You know the the the advocacy group. That is for homeless. Youth is like when is this going to happen. This was promised years ago So yeah there's there's Things things like that where You know there's no reason the world by that can't afford I will say also and I think this is a really big problem is you know a basic dysfunction between the city and the state government because the mayor and the governor or add on And that has a real impact on on on on all of these programs because the state Often can has to sign off on on initiatives videos. Doing the city has the negotiate that that's where the agency HO TDA so they may have a good day have to stack after relationship but when stuff has to actually be communicated between the executives. You know there's just there's this ongoing Row Gerald Green the mayor and the governor that that really actually impede progress on a lot of the issues and other issues to. Let's bring in this Call who's been waiting patiently High called a welcome to maximum murphy. Go ahead with your question for council members. Stephen Levin accused fellow Justice Center. Hello can you hear me yes. Go ahead caller. Hi this is Craig Irving Justice Center high. Count the number eleven. No Hi I wanted to ask you two questions and I'll keep them brief You know I was really appreciative. Where so many people about the report but in in being super appreciative There's also room for you know critical dialogue so one thing I was really curious about. I was really a happy to be that you all were recommending reevaluating. You count and I think there's an immense amount of discussion there You know we settler. who was the champion? MPM pass away. But he had been the first person who gets to be counseled upon that in the history of the city But wasn't mentioned in the report really Was the hope count. And I know you've been critical of hope virtually no advocates Was You know take seriously academics. Certainly don't For the most part it's a structural undercount and so I I'd rather not the hope the youth count. I'm really curious about The Hope Count. There's not been any hearings on it And whether or not you envisioned something in the future that actually take seriously counting street homeless people and not What everyone almost everyone and for listeners? Who Don't know the whole count is the annual one night survey of very visible street homeless that the city conducts and and then issues an annual all number which many people think to be An undercount of who is actually street homeless. So Casimir if you want to respond on whether you think action the hope count is is possible Yeah I mean I'm open to that and You're right thought you hearing US typically about the hope we are here. Having coming up on the city's efforts to just shoot homelessness and that's certainly Can Be addressed in that hearing and so I'll definitely Communicate with you offline to Incorporate any suggestions this the hearing is going to be coming up soon so Any idea that we put forward. I think it's You know it's one two little And frankly I don't I don't I don't put a lot of stocking to it. I mean I always participate in it and I think it's one thing that we can do. It does use the number winds up getting used so widely though right I mean that becomes the sort of like flagship action number for how many people are homeless on the street. That's true that's true and and absent any other accounts Right MHM That's it you know it's it's I think that The right through whatever the number is whether come on how or five thousand people who are who are Living on the street the the policy solutions are the same. And so that's the report speaks more to what we think actually needs to happen in order to have people come in off the street. So that's more safe haven that much more aggressive timeline on safe haven as that's the equipping shootout routines with your resources that they can offer to people. The reality is that street Irish teams. It's the people that are on. The street are not con type of street outreach. Teams Often contacted dozens of times shootout receives problem that the street outreach teams teams don't have any solutions to offer that Everybody that's living on the street. Knows that they can go to shelter They know that they have right to shelter. You don't want to go to the shelters that are offered offered to them because the shelters that are offered to that they don't place at So so the reality is that we know what the solutions are from a also. It shouldn't delude ourselves into thinking that the hope that a last quick question. Unfortunately we only have Less than a than a minute but I just wanted to you too tied together this some via the issue of housing Basically you know there's a lot of programs comes in and vouchers and outreach efforts in a lot of the things we've discussed here and many others in the report but there's also the question of the need for more low oh income housing and I know the speaker at the press conference. I think maybe I asked him this or somebody else had but You know said there'll be a council affordable housing plan actually coming to to complement is but can you just say you know briefly one thing about how you're thinking about the need for more housing. I mean we need more housing. That's that's that's available to people exiting shelter or housing all the people I lower income that means having some workable voucher system. This whole lot of pool is about about the the the the level of the voucher amount There's a bill in the house Hopefully support pill which is a concert. Our number Hennessy. Bill We hope that that gets enacted in the state budget this year which would row which would raise the voucher limits to the fair market. Rent right now there's you have a voucher. It's about eighty percents of the fair market rent. So if you do bedroom family of four for The vouchers were fifteen hundred dollars. Well Good luck funny a two bedroom apartment anywhere in New York City for fifteen hundred dollars right. It doesn't exist. I'M GONNA. I'm going to stop you there. We we we did talk to Senator Krueger recently on the show and she said she's fighting for for that bill Quite strongly this year so we know that that's a key Component this happen regards just shelter for years It's just it's it's so wrong.

"Chairs the city councils public safety committee which has N._y._p._d.. Oversight and we're going to talk with him about related issues issues and then get into some other stuff on affordable housing and perhaps Queens politics he represents district and southeast Queens. There is no shortage of interesting Queens political story lines most pressingly the recount that's ongoing in the Queens District Attorney Primary which we've discussed now for a couple of weeks on this show <hes> intermittently and we're hoping to find out results there soon so welcome councilmember richards to the show momentarily but it's wanted to ask you jared before we get to councilmember richards words <hes> there's been so much in the in the news and we'll ask him this but so much in the news obviously around the trial N._y._p._d.. Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the mayor's response lack thereof leading due process play out etcetera saying you know really that had his hands are tied. I had to defer to the Staten Island District Attorney and then the Federal Department of Justice <hes> and then finally moved ahead with the N._y._p._d.. Trial are you sympathetic to his argument there. Do you agree agree with those. Who've said he should've acted quicker? I mean I tend to agree that at some point. He should have sort of delivered an ultimatum to the D._O._J.. Saying listen if we don't hear from you by X.. Day We're moving ahead with our administrative trial. I think so and I think in his reaction to the D._O._J.'s announcement of recent weeks that that would be the city policy going forward is a tacit admission of that. I am sympathetic to the fact that there is you know there is a due process. There is a civil service procedure and that that should be respected that protects a lot of workers. It's frustrating in many cases. It's been frustrating this one but be that as it may we're coming to a point where built a blouse. You'll be out of <hes> exclusive excuses. If that's what it's been released other options and the decision will come down to him and I think that will be you know for better or worse a defining moment of his Merrill Turkey and of his sort of political profile what what he decided to do there. It's it's not an easy decision for him. especially he has a city to run a at least at the moment of presidential campaign to conduct but <hes> we're rapidly approaching the point where that has to occur yeah I mean as far as I can tell from his comments over many months you know he's tried to give some wings and knives to people people to be more patient because this is going to be resolved and it almost seems like you know he's sort of indicating. Yes don't worry when this is all said and done officer Pantaleo will be removed from the force. Maybe I'm reading too much into it because he hasn't said as much but he's promising missing. A resolution in August were waiting for the N._Y._p._d.. Administrative Judge to put a recommendation to Police Commissioner O.`Neil although officer Pantaleo then gets to respond to that recommendation I don't the mayor's promise of August feels a little premature mature to me but we'll see how that shakes out <hes> but we're waiting have the judge present those findings to and recommendations to Commissioner O.`Neil Than O.`Neil axe <hes> and then we see what happens if there's some sort of lawsuit or something you know filed and that's part of what I think the mayor's trying to protect against is him point you know quote unquote poisoning the public dialogue and then you know setting the city up for litigation if they do try to remove officer Pantaleo from the force so let's get city council member number Donovan Richards on the line and ask him about this and a lot more council member richards welcome to W._B._A._i.. Guys doing well. Thank you how you doing awesome day with that. <hes> <hes> former president <hes> thirty two beaches funeral today <hes> heck the Figueroa who we unfortunately lost <hes> star big leader in in the union movement across the city and country and real real lost city roller coaster today but glassy cobb rag step up <hes> who's a native of southeast Queens and <hes> who lives in my district who will be the new president of thirty MPG since you've. You've mentioned that let's start. Their Council member in one of the questions obviously is that this is a personal tragedy for <hes> for Mr. Figueroa's family friends certainly his allies in the union. What do you think is the significance in terms of policy in terms of politics of union power in the city of an untimely death like this because it is it is a major event in the question obviously is what impact will it have on the discussion about workers rights in New York City? You're going to see <hes> a heck does work continue <hes> I meant this gentleman who was a consensus bill. Someone who is respected but who really provided us all a blueprint on how to move <hes> the union movement forward <hes> you we look back at the fight for fifteen at airports right and organizing around <hes> you know how fast food workers <hes> taxi drivers now. You know these all things he had his toe. Oh dipped into and I I'm not. I don't feel like we're going to see a slow down and we have this movement is going to continue to go because he certainly built out a framework and I have the utmost confidence <hes> in Cobb rag were. Side by side with him since nineteen ninety nine <hes> at the J. who's I certainly had the pleasure working with medicine. We have a Euler in my district now and we've already worked very closely to ensure that will have building service where because on project <hes> even before we you know approve the project at <hes> the city council in a few months so I feel like the work is going to continue and we just have to build on the foundation at Hector laid out for yeah. You gotTa Very Interesting Point <hes> about Hector Figaro's leadership of thirty two B._J.. which is that he you know saw it as part of his philosophy and the and the larger union movement to help organize workers that weren't necessarily going to be members of thirty two B._J.? But he was very active in very involved called in labor organizing that was outside his direct union and that was a very interesting choice that not necessarily every leader of a of a specific union <hes> would take on so that'll be interesting to see where thirty two B._J.. Goes does <hes> on that front and you know the larger sort of strategy around organizing that the the union takes moving forward <hes> so let's let's get back to N._y._p._d.. Oversight which Your City Council Committee does and and you've been outspoken on a lot of issues related to policing <hes> before we get back to where things stand with the trial of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. I wanted to ask you first about <hes> sort of some the uproar around the mayor's comments about <hes> having quote unquote the talk with his son Dante who obviously <hes> who has a black mother Shirley mccray <hes> and has written and talked about growing up as a young black man in New York City the mayor's gotten a lot of criticism for bringing that backup on the presidential debate stage. What's what's your stance on that conversation and and how <hes> sometimes 'em we N._y._p._d.? Union Leadership <hes> reacts to that add instead of the public discourse around discussing having that conversation <hes> I think it's a real compensation and for black and Brown communities and I remember my father having this talk with meat very young <hes> you know with and my father and I remember one day <hes> we were hanging outside sitting on the stupidest one of those hot summit days and detectives literally pull up to a how it asks us. What are we doing there it so there are so many of these situations that arise every day <hes> for black and Brown communities that this is a common conversation on how to interact <hes> how to live after an interaction <hes> and I you know I for the Union leadership and it's very unfortunate that something I've pointed today out today I think I spoke to the New York Times and I was speaking of how oh the lack of diversity in union leadership certainly by me them from understanding the black and Brown experience so I think the unions have an obligation Asian to make sure that the diversifying rank and having people who are -flective of these communities in the ring so that they can get to size of the story instead of this narrow perception of these black and brown communities? Just let's make this up <hes>. I like to remind People Sean Bell with my neighbor <hes> after he was killed you know I am a close friend of mine who passed away through his daughter. You know one of her first birthday party <hes> so this his personal to us you know these are things we go through and I think the mayor's correct to talk about this..
