Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Mayor de Blasio’s Fiscal Year 2015 Preliminary Budget

“Thanks to five years of solid economic growth, New York City has a budget surplus that the Mayor is wisely tapping to replenish the Retiree Health Benefits Trust Fund, as well as maintain essential services. Business will continue to invest in the city and create new jobs, so long as the city remains safe, well-managed and fiscally sound.”
