Commissioning Failure: Adams’ Appointments Aren’t Making NYC Safer
Mayor Eric Adams won election for one reason: He was the only Democratic candidate to acknowledge New Yorkers’ public-safety fears.
Those fears are worsening, and Adams blames the media — overlooking one factor over which he has total control: the disastrous tenures of all three of his public-safety commissioners.
New York has three commissioners who oversee the uniformed workers whose job is public safety: police, fire and correction.
The mayor has sole power to appoint each commissioner.
How’s that working out?
