“The Department of Investigation is a crucial city agency that guards taxpayers from corruption, fraud, waste and abuse and the Council looks forward to a thorough and comprehensive hearing about how Mr. Peters will carry out that important mission.

New Yorkers expect and deserve a commissioner at DOI who will vigorously guard their interests and I expect Council Members will be ready next week with tough and pointed questions for how Mr. Peters will look out for New York’s hardworking taxpayers.”
