The Commission on Public Information and Communication

The Commission on Public Information and Communication should be meeting more often and if I am elected it will meet on a monthly basis. Public Information and Communication is the most important commission when it comes to privacy and how agency disseminate information.

The New York City Commission on Public Information and Communication is a City agency, established by the 1989 amendments to the New York City Charter. The Commission is chaired by the President of the City Council, and includes public members as well as representatives of the Mayor, the City Council and a number of city agencies. In addition to publication of the Public Data Directory, the Commission’s responsibilities include education and outreach to assist the public in obtaining access to City information, and developing strategies for the use of new communications technologies to improve access to and distribution of city data.
