UNBELIEVABLE: Mayor Bill de Blasio appoints his WILDLY CORRUPT WIFE head of coronavirus racial inequality task force

92

Chirlane McCray, who has just been revealed as a world-class pilferer of taxpayer funds, and her team spent an eye-popping $900 million — and nobody seems to have a clue on what. Nobody kept receipts; the subways and street corners are still overrun with crazy people, and nobody in charge knows what’s to happen next. And yet the mayor defended the decision to put his wife in charge of that council, saying that her work with the boondoggle ThriveNYC made her qualified because of the ideas she generated, including a $250-million-a-year mental health plan.

Right up there with co-Mayor Bill, who started the week on his own sour note — announcing thaRed Bill appoints his t his signature Renewal school program was closing up shop after pounding $773 million down a rathole.

Well, he didn’t actually say “rathole,” and the price tag has doubtless been lowballed — but he also had no credible explanation for the debacle, nor did he apologize for it.

“We did not say everything would be perfect,” burbled the co-mayor — as if anybody outside his immediate orbit expected an outcome even close to competent. (more here)

They burned through $1.6 billion to no obvious good effect. No one knows where that money is.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, will head up a special coronavirus task force that looks into racial inequality as part of his plan to reopen the city.

He added that he believes it will take more than 20 months to fully rebuild New York City.

As part of that rebuild, de Blasio announced different councils that will focus on reopening. His wife, McCray, will head the racial inequality task force.

The First Lady, 65, will work with Deputy Mayor Phil Thompson in the role that will focus on inclusion and equity to make sure the city ‘rebounds as a better and more just society than the one we left behind,’ de Blasio said.

The mayor defended the decision to put his wife in charge of that council, saying that her work with the embattled ThriveNYC made her qualified because of the ideas she generated, including a $250-million-a-year mental health plan.

‘In terms of fighting inequality, Thrive has gone to that point and in many ways even farther,’ de Blasio said. ‘I think that’s exactly the kind of mindset needed for this task force.’

However, critics have said that the ThriveNYC is ineffective. It’s not clear how much McCray will be paid to lead the new initiative.

McCray will work with Deputy Mayor Phil Thompson in the role that will focus on inclusion and equity to make sure the city ‘rebounds as a better and more just society than the one we left behind,’ de Blasio said

During today’s press conference, de Blasio also said that rebuilding will take the next 20 months of his administration and ‘then far beyond that’.

‘We’ve got a lot of work to do. And it’s going to be for me and my team a nonstop effort, a race to the finish line over these next 20 months to do the most we can to put this city on the strongest possible footing for the future,’ he added.

As part of the plan to reopen, a series of working groups will be set up – one of those is the one McCray will head to address ‘transformation’ as the crisis has highlighted ‘many things that are broken in our city and in our country’.

De Blasio said he hopes to have a roadmap by June 1 on how to rebuild the city after the coronavirus threat subsides.

The mayor said that city leaders he’s invited to help plan the city’s recovery should give him the roadmap by then.

He also said the latest statistics on people being treated for COVID-19 continued to be stable or decline.

The number of people in the city’s hospital intensive care units had dropped from 785 to 768.
According to the mayor, there will be multiple advisory councils divided up by industry and sector to help get the city back on track

De Blasio said the city can’t begin reopening until decreases continue for 10 to 14 days. He said such a fall would signal it was time for the first steps in opening up.

‘The health indicators have to give us the all clear,’ de Blasio said. ‘We restart when we have evidence. There’s no on-off switch here. It’s a series of careful, smart moves.’

According to the mayor, there will be multiple advisory councils divided up by industry and sector to help get the city back on track.

The councils, which include groups focused on small business, public health and health care, arts, culture and tourism, and labor, will begin meeting in May.

In an interview with Fox News, De Blasio also said that New York City needs a $7.4billion in federal aid to offset economic losses from the coronavirus.

He urged President Donald Trump to push his fellow Republicans in the Senate to back more relief funding for states and cities.

‘The federal government must make us whole for us to be able to be in a position to restart,’ De Blasio told the network.

‘If New York City is not whole, it will drag down the entire region, and it will hold up the entire national economic restart.’

New York has also started to test health care workers for coronavirus antibodies and will do the same next week with transit and law enforcement workers as the state eases away from the worst days of the pandemic.

Doctors, nurses and other employees at four New York City hospitals that have handled high volumes of coronavirus patients will be the first tested under the new program.
