Ratner Hires Meeks

Brooklyn Papers has reported that Janella Meeks, Chief of Staff to anti-Atlantic Yards Councilwoman Letitia James and sister of pro-yards Congressman Greg Meeks, has been hired by Bruce Ratner.

“Obviously she needed a change,” James told The Brooklyn Papers. “She was looking for an opportunity, and Forest City offered it.

“I guess she needed additional income and she took advantage of a deal I couldn’t provide her with,” James added.
