We're having an event at the Bowery Poetry Club on Monday, Sept. 24, where members will be able to ask NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson questions about City government and policy issues, then mingle while enjoying cocktails.

Bowery Poetry Club

You'll recall that Comptroller Thompson is a City official who's been taking an interest this year in freelancers' issues: he released a report on the economic impact of self-employed workers, and then he testified to the City Council about the UBT (Unincorporated Business Tax). This event will be a great opportunity to hear him talk about policy and to meet him in person.
