Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Ken Fisher, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Public Strategies Group, discussed the varying infrastructure priorities of New Yorkers Donald Trump, Andrew Cuomo, and Bill de Blasio in New York Real Estate Journal. Donald Trump, Andrew Cuomo, and Bill de Blasio are all New Yorkers elected to public office. All speak often about infrastructure and all have strong personalities. But their priorities are not aligned. Re-elected without serious opposition, Bill de Blasio starts his final four years as mayor of New York City with an ambitious capital spending agenda, including continued investment in affordable housing, expansion of alternative transportation systems like the BQX light rail planned to run from Red Hook, Brooklyn to Astoria, Queens, and a full-on commitment to energy and emissions reduction. Both construction spending overall and tax receipts continue at a robust pace, with the city’s population at 8.5 million its highest ever and still growing and an economy propelled by a record 4.5 million jobs.
