“Mayor Adams is smartly focusing on partnerships with the private sector to accomplish a broad agenda, ranging from education and workforce development to expanding our economic development initiatives into cutting edge areas of the life sciences and planetary health,” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City. “New York City faces fiscal challenges, but still boasts one of the strongest economies of any city in the world. The Mayor seeks to leverage business resources to expand the tax base and generate revenues needed to invest in improving city services, building more affordable housing, caring for the mentally ill, and preparing New Yorkers for careers. Leaders of the city’s business community are enthusiastic about partnering with Mayor Adams to achieve these objectives.”
