NYC CEOs Demand De Blasio Do Something About Skyrocketing Crime

NYC CEOs Demand De Blasio Do Something About Skyrocketing Crime

“We need to send a strong, consistent message that our employees, customers, clients and visitors will be coming back to a safe and healthy work environment.”

New York City has seen crime numbers go up since the death of George Floyd and the backlash against the police. Videos show people destroying and looting nationwide brands to small businesses.

Now CEOs of 160 corporations demanded New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio take action against the skyrocketing crime in the city and quality of life.

From The New York Post:

“There is widespread anxiety over public safety, cleanliness and other quality of life issues that are contributing to deteriorating conditions in commercial districts and neighborhoods across the five boroughs,” the powerful business leaders wrote to de Blasio on Thursday.

“We need to send a strong, consistent message that our employees, customers, clients and visitors will be coming back to a safe and healthy work environment. People will be slow to return unless their concerns about security and the livability of our communities are addressed quickly and with respect and fairness for our city’s diverse populations,” they wrote.

“We urge you to take immediate action to restore essential services as a necessary precursor for solving the city’s longer term, complex, economic challenges,” the letter added.

Republican candidate for mayor and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa told de Blasio “to wake up and get this city back on track” because it’s foolish to push people to go back to work among the mess in the streets.

Even the Democratic candidate for mayor Maya Wiley applauded the corporations for providing support for the “basic services” needed across the city. Wiley noted that everyone in the city needs to step in and push de Blasio to fix the problems.

In July, de Blasio and the city council ripped millions from the budgets of the NYPD and sanitation.

Crime has gone up, but so has the rat population. Trash is picked up three times a week, leaving garbage piled on the streets.

De Blasio’s press secretary said that the office wants “to restore these services and save jobs,” which means they need help from everyone.

It sounds like if the city restored the money to the police and sanitation the problem should get fixed easily.

News of the Near Future:

De Blasio refuses to do anything about the crime in NYC.

Anyone do research of their own on this topic of how corrupt the state governments are by factual evidence?

    (Real name) Werner is too busy pumping city funds into his wife’s bank account to deal with “crime”. If there is ever an honest DA in that $hithole, I imagine they will find he stole billions of dollars. Maybe he can hire a few social workers as cannon fodder as he “defunds” the cops. I can’t imagine why the “stock exchange” stays there and pays tribute to the corrupt government on every trade they make. They could save billions by moving to Florida or Texas.

      The Chicago Mercantile Exchange is already setting up, or HAS set up, new faclities outside Chicago and Cook County.

      “I can’t imagine why the “stock exchange” stays there and pays tribute to the corrupt government on every trade they make.”

      What’s the formal term, “credence goods?” Gotham has an emotional, mythical status. The sharks get to lord that over lessers by being there. Gotta let you know they’re masters of the universe.

      There’s a sort of cultural tribalism, too. Xerox moved their HQ to Conn. Boeing to Chicago. You could argue for adjacency to finance houses n so on. In fact it’s for the team signaling: “We really are a real company, see?” (How’d that work out, BTW?)

      There are several studies n a couple books with “American Nations” — they mean continental US — in the title, breaking this out by geography. NYC is the trade n finance anchor for greater New England, who ought to be running everything because they’re more moral, just ask them.

      That’s operationally backwards, of course. Adjacency amplifies operations — see Research Triangle Park — which the PPT jockeys are all the time looking to spread around. “Cheaper” $, but ignore xaction, coordination, n communication costs. Or, you know, you’ll get crap when yr suppliers feel like it, and like it, says Chy-nah. Note: integrating yr supply chain w mercantilists, w state “businesses” and avowed goals of world domination might not work out so well for you long term.

      Market version…

      You’ve heard: In the short term the market is a voting machine; in the long term it’s a weighing machine.

      Similar point: In the short term market prices are driven by sentiment; in the long term by math.

      I’ll add that people vote their sentiment until it starts to really hurt them directly.

      Behind a lot of our cultural silliness is too much sutplus. People were fine backing the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, until some realized they were really getting hurt n peeled off. Some stuck with Herself, as they still had enough personally; their bubble persisted because they only encountered people like themselves.

      Consider also the following symbolic president of symbolism. Endless crappy economy. Endless wars. The opposite of racial healing. But symbolic! “Feels good” is a fine payoff for people who have enough real stuff.

      CEOs won’t move until it hurts them, their staff, workers, n especially their approval-spouting tribe to stay. (Argues for goveonance n compensation changes, perhaps. CEO who moved Xerox HQ retired rich, with plaudits n sincures thereafter. Her predecessor, who actually saved the place, what’s *her* name?)

LOL, he’ll “do something” alright. It will probably involve increasing your taxes and demonizing you as greedy capitalists.

People deserve the government they vote for, and NYC deserves to get fucked because they were idiots enough to elect a Socialist.

Does anybody believe the bolshevik cares one bit what CEOs have to say? He wants them destroyed and is willing to completely take down the city to do it.

    He may not like them, but he likes their money and he’s smart enough to realize that w/o business investment in his city there’s no wealth for him to tax. De Blasio was a booster of the Amazon HQ in Long Island City, it was AOC who scuttled the deal.

      BierceAmbrose in reply to Dennis. | September 14, 2020 at 11:34 am

      It was a combination of AOC, The Hereditary Proconsul, De Bo Bo, and El Heffe of Amazonia that scuttled that.

      I was grumping that there was no way for them all loose on that, yet they found a way. Creative and flexible. Working together. One wonders what they could accomplish were they that creative n flexible about doing actual stuff vs wrangling rake-off “deals?”

NYC has received a strong, consistent message that de Blasio and the city council are more concerned about the BLM, defunding cops, and the “woke” policies of the liberal left.

What crime come on down to the Chinese new year and celebrate with us.

Until the election is over good luck with that.

Sitting in Larchmont crying about the Mayor that their donations helped put into the office……not something that I give a rat’s ass about…..you wanted him, you got him.

He’s done – timed out on term limits. Now he’s just slurping up all the gravy he can while there’s still a little bit left, and causing all the mischief possible, I guess out of some kind of Democrat spite and an instinct for making the machine grow bigger and harder to control.

Won’t it be interesting to see who steps up to be the next set of candidates?

“Now CEOs of 160 corporations demanded New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio take action against the skyrocketing crime in the city and quality of life.”

Such empty posturing! I wonder how much cash these more-commie-than-thou CEOs have been shoveling into the pockets of the Antifa/BLM terrorists. Eight figures wouldn’t surprise me.

There is something that the NYC business community, its employees, customers, and others can do about the mess: in plain, simple, Brooklyn Ivonics, “T’row da bums out!”

If NY’s Finest doesn’t have the stones to rid their city of this criminal F them. It’s their job, not ours. Just because he was elected means nothing compared to his blatant criminal activity. Besides, accidental discharges happen all the time. One more won’t hurt anything. I mean, you know, except for this aszhoels face.

Now CEOs of 160 corporations demanded New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio take action against the skyrocketing crime in the city and quality of life.</blockquote.

And if these "CEOs of 160 corporations" haven't figured out by now that De Blasio doesn't care what happens to the city he was elected to run I really don't know what to say other than get the hell out now and don't look back. This is only the beginning. It's going to get a lot worse. Especially when Pres. Trump wins another 4 years in the White House.

    The letter should have been sent to Cuomo, who legally could remove DeBlasio. They should have said that they are considering their long term presence in NY City and, if they decide to leave the city, they will leave the state.

The CEOs would be better off by firing every leftist executive they have. It’s plainly obvious not that the leftist executive actions and support for leftist causes is not consistent with their businesses objective of staying in existence.

de Blasio couldn’t lead a one car funeral.

DiBlasio is doing something; in fact TWO things.
1) He is caving to the BLM and other leftists by slashing the police budget.
2) He is blaming Trump.
So you can say he is doing SOMETHING. Don’t expect it to work to solve his ballooning crime rate, but he can try.
