With snow and winds expected this weekend, remove blow-able objects from your balcony!
NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer spoke to a full house. Focusing on diversity, he said that the City should be exactly like Central Park Gardens: with many different types of people living side by side. As powerful as we are economically, it is our diversity that is our great strength.
To promote diversity, he and the comptrollers of other municipalities and states (like CalPers) formed the Boardroom Accountability Project to pressure big companies like Walmart and Apple to increase the diversity of their ownership and boards - with the right for the Project to appoint a director. Similarly, the NYC Comptroller's office rated every NYC agency (including its own) for diversity. Last year and this, the Comptroller's office got a "C" grade, but is improving with more Minority and Women-owned Businesses (MWBs).
