Maloney, Seawright Hold Virtual Town Hall on COVID-19
Even in the midst of a citywide lockdown, Manhattan lawmakers are still finding ways to stay connected with their constituents.
Last Monday, the Four Freedoms Democratic Club hosted a virtual town hall with U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY D-12), Assemblymember Rebecca Seawright (D- Upper East Side, Yorkville, Roosevelt Island) and infectious disease specialist Dr. Dana Mazo to discuss the effects of coronavirus pandemic in the United States.
Maloney talked about the lack of initiative taken by the federal government to tackle the crisis. As she pointed out, the United States declined COVID-19 tests from the World Health Organization and China, which slowed the response in the U.S.
