Ayala leads council in passing resolution authorizing legal action against Mayor Adams for ‘poor governance’ regarding homelessness

City Council Deputy Speaker Diana Ayala on Feb. 8 led the council to pass a resolution allowing the speaker to take legal action against Mayor Eric Adams for what the council says is his failure to combat the homelessness crisis. 

Ayala, who represents parts of the South Bronx and Manhattan in District 8, led a Committee on General Welfare meeting before the full vote on Feb. 8, where she called Mayor Adams’s failure to implement a package of bills “another example of poor governance.”
