The Challenge: Mayor Adams’ appointment of his former landlord, Lisa White, to deputy NYPD commissioner.
Does Mayor Adams assume his constituents in New York Metropolis are all fools (“Buddies with profit$,” Nov. 23)?
I actually assume he believes that so long as you’re a relative, a good friend or a good friend of a good friend that qualifies you for a $200,00-plus place in his administration.
Simply what number of deputies does the mayor want? Apparently, nobody oversees these appointments.
I assume along with his very lively nightlife, the mayor wants all these deputies to run the town. It’s not shocking that so many individuals have been abandoning the Large Apple.
I voted for Mayor Adams due to his law-enforcement background and his no-nonsense marketing campaign guarantees on preventing crime.
Clearly, I made a mistake. It’s evident that road crime is uncontrolled, however so is the mayor’s blatant allotting of profitable patronage jobs to family and friends.
It has turn out to be evident that Adams is utilizing his government energy recklessly.
Properly, it looks like nothing is altering with the Democrats and the strikes they make.
Our mayor has appointed his once-landlord, Lisa White, a former 911 dispatcher, to deputy NYPD commissioner.
What’s he going to do subsequent — appoint his cleansing girl as commissioner of the Division of Sanitation? That’s in all probability a greater transfer. A minimum of she would have some cleansing expertise. Rob Johann
After seeing The Publish’s front-page headline on Wednesday, the conclusion was clear. Clearly the outdated saying, “It’s not what you recognize, however who you who know,” continues to be working very properly.
Adams is unquestionably displaying his true colours right here.
Adams’ administration shouldn’t be a really culturally various one. He has given his cronies high-paying jobs that most certainly include a good-looking pension.
I’ve an issue if these individuals are not certified for these jobs, and it’s primarily based on nepotism alone.
The Challenge: Midterm-election knowledge displaying GOP politicians gained in predominantly Asian areas in NYC.
Your front-page story, “Asian voters ditched Dems,” paints a distorted picture of Asian American voters (Nov. 21).
The Asian American Authorized Protection and Schooling Fund’s multilingual exit ballot on Nov. 8 surveyed 2,628 voters throughout Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan. A majority weighed the economic system/jobs and well being care as extra influential to their vote than public security.
Additional, Asian American voters usually supported Democratic candidates, together with Gov. Hochul and Iwen Chu, the primary Asian American lady elected to the state Senate.
There isn’t a doubt Democrats have to do extra to succeed in out to our communities and earn our votes, however portray Asian Individuals as merely pushed by sensational rhetoric round crime is deceptive.
It’s no shock that many Asian voters have modified course.
Democratic politicians have taken these hardworking, productive folks without any consideration for too lengthy.
It’s tough to simply accept that proper right here in New York, a lot of our radical political leaders have determined that there are too many Asian college students in colleges of excessive standing.
With the ultimate knowledge in on the final election, it appears the Asian voting bloc has despatched out a robust message.
