The new leadership of the New York City Council voted to approve leaders of its 35 committees on Jan. 19. Each of the four Haitian-Americans, who started their terms on the council Jan. 1, received appointments as committee chairs.
District 40 Council Member Rita Joseph, a former teacher, was appointed chair of the 21-member education committee, the council’s largest. Other chair assignments include District 36 Council Member Chi Osse to the cultural affairs committee, District 46 Council Member Mercedes Narcisse to the hospitals committee and District 45 Council Member Farah Louis to the subcommittee on landmarks, public siting and dispositions.
Subcommittees, according to the City Council, consider specific matters and report back to a standing committee, like the committee on land use in Louis’s case.
