Queens Councilman Wants to Cut Red Tape
City Councilman Eric Gioia is on a quest to get Queens residents the food stamps and school breakfasts they need. The Queens Gazette reports that Gioia has put under-participation in these federal programs on the radar of local community boards, and wants to push for further innovations in outreach and application procedures. Said Gioia, "If you apply online, you don't have to wait in line."
