Op-ed | A lawyer for all New York

For the past 24 years, I have been the CEO of the Bowery Residents’ Committee (BRC), one of New York City’s largest, most effective, and well-respected nonprofit organizations working extensively with the city and state. For over a decade prior to that, I served in New York City government under Mayors Koch, Dinkins and Giuliani.

After reading recent media reports indicating that Mayor Eric Adams may nominate Randy Mastro to serve as the next NYC Corporation Counsel, I feel compelled to share my unwavering support for this decision. I have known Randy Mastro professionally for over 30 years and cannot imagine a better person to serve our city in this role.
