LOBBING THE NYC COUNCIL - UPDATE
We Need Your Help

carriage horseThe Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages has begun to lobby City Council Members to ask for their support on a bill to ban horse-drawn carriages in NYC. We are still looking for people to join us in meeting with the following Council Members who are part of the Transportation Committee: Joseph Addabbo, Howard Beach Queens - zip-11414, 11416 ? 11421, 11693, 11694, 11697 Michael McMahon - Staten Island - zip-10301-10305, 10310, 10314 Darlene Mealy - Brooklyn, zip-11212, 11213, 11216, 11225; Larry Seabrook - Bronx - zip 10466-10469

If you live in one of these zip codes, then one of these council members is probably your representative. Please get involved and join us at a meeting with them. These meetings are CRUCIAL in getting support for our bill since it will probably be heard in the Transportation Committee. If you have time for nothing else - Please join us in these meetings. The horses need your help. Contact Elizabeth at
