Willets Point group claims Claire Shulman is lobbying illegally
From the Daily News Article in 2008:
City law defines lobbying as efforts to influence elected officials or the Planning Commission on issues such as zoning or real estate "subject to city regulation."
At the Planning Commission hearing on Willets Point in August, Shulman said: "I hope you will strongly consider adding your voices to those people supporting this project."
Shulman has vowed to meet every Council member before they vote on the plan next month.
