NYC Mayor’s Response to People and Businesses Leaving NYC: “Kick rocks, billionaires.” (Really)
From NY Daily News:
Last week, an article referenced the stakes of this leadership vacuum — namely that New York’s declining tax base, heavily reliant on its wealthiest residents, underwrites infrastructure and social services on which all of us rely.
The response from the office of the mayor? Literally: “Kick rocks, billionaires.” Wait, what? I was stunned.
This mentality, paired with an incoherent strategy and lack of an affirmative vision for helping New Yorkers coping with economic disaster, is terrifying.
