Testimony of Bettina Damiani of Good Jobs New York Before the Domestic Policy Subcommittee Oversight and Government Reform 10/10/7

Click the title to read her testimony in full, but here is a taste:

"The Yankee Stadium project has drawn most of our attention because it so egregiously undermined democratic planning principles. It put the Yankee’s bottom line before the employment, recreational and public health needs of the South Bronx. It threatens to create more air pollution after the team and officials covertly seized 22 acres of heavily used parkland where the new stadium and parking facilities are currently being built. The committee heard from a local resident, Joyce Hogi, at your hearing held last March the impacts this project is having on her community."
