“New Yorkers deserve an economy and a city government that works for everyone. While we have made progress in recovering from the pandemic, there remains significant work to confront the longstanding inequities that continue in our communities with an unequal recovery. Mayor Adams’ proposals to reopen access to NYCHA Section 8 vouchers, build more housing, advance opportunities for women, and solutions to make our streets safer are important, and the Council looks forward to working collaboratively on these critical issues. At a time when our city is facing major challenges and overlapping crises, we must rely on our city agencies and workers to effectively help New Yorkers and our communities to persevere. Our success is only possible with the right investments and policies to support the critical work of our agencies, which we are fully committed to advancing. The Council will continue to advocate for the health, safety, and well-being of all New Yorkers, and we look forward to working with all stakeholders to achieve our shared goals for the city.”
