The formation of this independent Budget Advisory Panel is one of those moments. This esteemed group of independent, cross-sector experts have come together with one goal: continue to strengthen the city's financial position and deliver on the needs of working-class New Yorkers. I look forward to working with this panel to help write the next chapter of our city's story."
