Richards to take over zoning committee

From the Daily News:

Queens City Councilman Donovan Richards was named the new head of the Council’s zoning committee on Friday.

The influential panel has authority over all zoning changes in the city — including a slew of neighborhood rezonings that Mayor de Blasio is soon expected to start pushing to make way for his affordable housing plan.

Richards, a Democrat who represents Far Rockaway, takes over from longtime chairman Mark Weprin, who quit his seat to take a post in the Cuomo administration.

So the guy who supports commercial parking lots in residential zones is taking over the zoning committee... Sounds about right.

What commercial parking lot in residential zones are you talking about?

Of course, he'll be getting tons of campaign contributions from the real estate industry.
