City Hall, NY – Speaker Adrienne Adams today announced the New York City Council committee chairs and leadership.

“I am honored to serve as Chairwoman of the Council’s Committee on Public Housing,” said Council Member Alexa Avilés. “NYCHA was one of the first public housing authorities to ever break ground and is the largest in North America. With capital needs alone of $40 billion and growing, we will have our work cut out for us. I commit to protect, preserve, and invest in NYCHA, to hold contractors, elected officials, and the agency accountable, and to serve the hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who call NYCHA home. I will fight to keep public housing as a public good and to advance a vision for public housing that is resident-led and centered.”
