I am honored to have been elected by my colleagues to serve as the next NYC Council Finance Committee Chairperson.
As Finance Committee Chairperson, I have oversight over NYC’s $86 billion dollar budget. Additionally, my committee has jurisdiction over the city’s Banking Commission, Department of Design and Construction, Department of Finance, Independent Budget Office, and Office of the Comptroller, as well as reviewing and modifying the City Budget and municipal fiscal policy and revenue from any additional sources.
Being Finance Committee Chairperson gives me the opportunity to set priorities for the city using the vast resources that are available to us. I intend to use this position to move a progressive budget forward working closely with Speaker Corey Johnson who I thank for giving me this opportunity to serve.
