Speaker Adams to deliver State of the City in Soundview on Wednesday


City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams, a Queens Democrat, will hold her State of the City address in the Bronx this year.

The event will take place at 12 p.m. Wednesday at the Justice Sonia Sotomayer Houses and Community Center at 1000 Rosedale Ave. in Soundview.

Adams was elected to her role by the city’s first female-majority council in January 2022, becoming the first Black councilmember to hold the position. As the speaker, she sets priorities for the 51-member legislative body.

The speech, her second as speaker, will be live streamed on the City Council website, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Adams will deliver the speech in English, but it will also be available in Spanish, Mandarin and American Sign Language.
