Over 20 people attended today's Port Authority public meeting! We had ten people ready to speak on behalf of saving the Worldport, but in the interest of time, the Port Authority asked that only six people speak. In return for this favor, a Port Authority adviser to the Executive Director met with our entire group for an hour after the official meeting ended to hear our concerns personally! We would like to thank Dave Garten for this opportunity to begin engaging the Port Authority in constructive discussions on the future of this iconic landmark!
The video from the public session is available here (Board Meeting - 05/29/2013)
