The New York Postpublished an editorial titled "Greg Meeks - Again" regarding the allegations in our Complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on October 28. Meeks apparently had not yet received a copy of the Complaint at the time he wrote a column published last week in the Queens (New York) Tribune. In the column, Meeks characterized us as "right wing" and (again) blamed us for his ethics problems. I can't wait to see his reaction to our new Complaint. In the Tribune, Meeks omitted mention of his friend Edul Ahmad, from whom he secured an unsecured and unreported $40,000 ...

Meeks, a Senior Member of the Financial Services Committee, submitted a letter (below) in response to the Federal Reserve System’s request for comments on its Proposed Guidance on Supervisory Expectation for Boards of Directors.  The letter urges the Fed to improve its proposed guidance by affirming the importance of banks to consider diverse nominees when picking board directors.   Although the Fed’s proposed guidance highlights that “an effective board is composed of directors with a diversity of skills, knowledge, experience, and perspectives”, the guidance failed to highlight the importance of considering board nominees that are diverse with respect to their race, ethnicity, and gender.

We have been forthcoming, transparent and have responded to all of the New York Post’s requests in a timely manner. However, the New York Post is not delivering fair, honest or balanced reporting and is only interested in smearing the name of their public official of choice.  I will work with any credible news organization on fair and balanced reporting. The New York Post is neither fair nor balanced and therefore will no longer receive the courtesy of my assistance. To hear more of Congressman Meeks response, please click on the following link for an excerpt from the Errol Louis Radio Show.

  Rep. Meeks Statement on City Council Bill 1447 Queens, NY—Congressman Meeks released the following statement on City Council Bill 1447: "Everyone agrees that something needs to be done to improve worker safety.
