Mark Green’s 311 Story

Yesterday, the New York Post ran a story saying Mark Green is improperly claiming credit for 311, a program that was used in other cities and contemplated by the previous mayor before being implemented by Michael Bloomberg.
The article quotes Green at an April 21 event saying, “I had an idea, one of a hundred. I called it 311.” Green’s campaign responded in the article by saying the candidate “championed” the idea, and was later “given credit” by Bloomberg himself.
In response to that story, an interested reader sent this video of several of Green’s public comments about 311 at various public advocate forums. In it, Green refers to being “the first” who advocated for “an idea I called 311.
