Pols, advocacy groups strongly denounce mayor’s budget modification plan


Several elected officials and advocacy groups have denounced Mayor Eric Adams’s budget modification plan that they say will result in major cuts throughout various city agencies. 

“Slashing funds from City agencies that offer our communities the resources and care that they need and deserve is wholly irresponsible and dangerous,” said City Council Member Rita Joseph, the Haitian-born representative for the 40th Council District in Brooklyn, in a letter to constituents on Thursday.
