Top Adams admin official says City Hall still weighing Randy Mastro as city’s next top lawyer – but have not yet nominated him

The Adams administration still wants to move forward with nominating attorney Randy Mastro as the city’s next top lawyer, a leading City Hall official said Tuesday — but the controversial nomination has yet to be made official.

During the mayor’s July 2 weekly press briefing, Mayor Eric Adams’ Chief Adviser Ingrid Lewis Martin did not directly answer if and when City Hall plans to officially float Mastro’s name for the job, which opened on May 31 when the city’s last corporation counsel Sylvia Hinds-Radix resigned.
