160 CEOs Pled with NYC Mayor de Blasio to Address Increase in Crime and Quality of Life Concerns
From The New York Post:
The heads of over 160 major corporations, from Macy’s to MasterCard are pleading with Mayor Bill de Blasio to finally crack down on crime and address quality of life concerns so New Yorkers can return to work after the coronavirus shutdown the city.
“There is widespread anxiety over public safety, cleanliness and other quality of life issues that are contributing to deteriorating conditions in commercial districts and neighborhoods across the five boroughs,” the powerful business leaders wrote to de Blasio Thursday.
“We need to send a strong, consistent message that our employees, customers, clients and visitors will be coming back to a safe and healthy work environment. People will be slow to return unless their concerns about security and the livability of our communities are addressed quickly and with respect and fairness for our city’s diverse populations,” they wrote.
