Gossips reported about the virtual "Town Hall on Environmental Justice in Black Neighborhoods," held by Lukee Forbes of the Hudson Catskill Housing Coalition, before it took place but not after it happened. Jamel Cutler, however, wrote about the town hall for the Register-Star: "Panel: City truck route 'a nightmare.'"
Two of the four announced panelists were not present, and the two that were--Linda Mussmann and Kayah Payton--talked mostly about how awful it was to have heavy trucks passing through the city. One of the absent panelists, Peter Jung, submitted a video, which was not shared during the town hall but was sent to attendees afterward. Jung is one of the cofounders of The Valley Alliance, and his presentation in the video speaks about one aspect of Hudson's truck problem: the Colarusso gravel trucks. The video, which can be viewed here, provides a good summary of the current situation, but the last minute of the video is particularly interesting. Gossips recommends it.
