“The New York Building Congress congratulates Mayor-elect Adams, Public Advocate Williams, Comptroller-elect Lander and the incoming Borough Presidents and Council Members who won their elections tonight,” said Carlo A. Scissura, President and CEO of the New York Building Congress. “They will lead a New York City that finds itself at the crossroads of history. The last year and a half has forced a reckoning with public health, racial divisions and economic disparity. While this has no doubt been a challenging time for the five boroughs, we are now at a moment in which we can literally build a stronger, fairer future. The women and men of our industry are ready to work with the incoming City leadership to design and construct the next generation of schools, open spaces, hospitals and affordable housing. A new New York City is on the horizon.”
