"Next mayor of the city of New York Only girl has a bear A band Michael they had a whole band there And there were about a hundred other people out there Adams and Democrats across the city are really focused on turning out the vote He is the clear unequivocal FrontRunner at this point But he's still wants a solid showing at the polls because that reinforces support for his new administration and its agenda And I should note voters will have one more chance to hear these two mayoral candidates in a debate this week They will be on tomorrow from 78 on WABC and Univision It will likely feature a lot more of sliwa trying to chip away at atoms blue collar image while atoms to flex criticism and try to paint sliwa is an unserious candidate Sounded like a band from an 1896 presidential style or something Not only the names on the ballot Bridget making the rounds this week but mayor de Blasio spoke to a church in Brooklyn Does that fuel any speculation that he's getting serious about that gubernatorial bid Oh yes You know this is the type of move you see from a candidate who is running not one who is term limited Certainly he's trying to cement his legacy but he's also speaking to his base He was an east flatbush in a place where he remains popular and he wants to talk about what his administration has delivered and why he wants to continue in public service Now it's worth noting Siena college poll last week that found in a hypothetical matchup with other potential gubernatorial primary candidates de Blasio only got 6% of the support but that underdog status is like pretty much de Blasio's sweet spot He believes he can turn numbers like that around because he has before his win in 2013 is the most significant case in point And of course it conflicts most directly with his very unsuccessful bid for president in 2020 but despite that he is definitely laying the groundwork for his next steps Okay bridges So we're about to wrap up one election and you're already talking to us about the next one Why should we care about these kind of political calculations so far so far from the next election Well you know the thing is Michael there are lots of decisions that will be made between now and next June with really serious everyday implications for voters for de Blasio where is he going to focus his energy in the final weeks He just signed some legislation that would require hotels to provide additional severance to their workers The hotel trades council the union that represents them was the only major union to support his presidential run in 2020 Should we be evaluating his decisions between now and then knowing that he's considering this gubernatorial bid It's probably pretty fair to keep that in mind Similarly governor Cathy hoku will be negotiating her first state budget She's vowed to work with the mayor of New York City likely Eric Adams but we will see next week For those who remember mayor de Blasio and governor Cuomo actually did start off on the right foot but it was how they got to negotiate agreements that's where things really started to break down What are we going to see in that negotiating process And then of course we're keeping eyes on people like public advocates money Williams attorney general to James they're going to need to decide soon whether they are running for governor so it's easy for constituents to take what our current elected officials are doing on face value but it's also helpful to remember when it may be connected to their political ambitions A lot of political calculations Bridget Bergen is WNYC's senior politics reporter you can read more at gothamist dotcom Bridget Thank you so much Thank you Support for NPR comes from WNYC members and from the Kaufman foundation working together with communities to break.
"mayor de blasio" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"The morning new york. This is the catch roundtable sunday morning. What's going on with this governor. David paterson and no one better than to tell us what the heck is going on the money governor. How are you good morning on. I'm actually up in early I wanna watch a football game at nine thirty. So i'm ready. Wow now to tell us There was a few stories. I was concerned about that in the new york times on friday about changing some of the elite public schools that exist in new york to tell us about it. Well for a long time. People have felt that the gifted encountered programs particularly the ones that start at kindergarten is very hard to test those kids to decide who's gifted and talented. They usually had one test that they took and it kind of governed where they were going to be educated for the rest of the public school experience. Now there were some problems in that system but just like with bail form when you go to fix some of those problems. Sometimes you can destroy the system. So what is going to happen. This here because Mayor defazio wanted to keep the test. He was running against it but he wanted to keep the test. Is that the board. That is supervising this overrule mayor de blasio. And what's going to happen now. Is they're going to have a lottery so there's going to be a lottery to determine who should be in the gifted and talented programs fail miserably man so dumb. I can't believe how dumb that is. I don't is a good word because we can say on the radio. I have some other. That i'm thinking of the reality. Is that when you mix the the classes so much. The giftedandtalented kids at sitting around staring at the ceiling. Because they've already completed the work and the other kids are still struggling to try to complete the work. So that's why you try as much as you can to find tune the education to the capacity of the child to learn it what we want to get rid of is the sort of caste system when you start out that way you know you're in the dumb class or the smart class stuff. They used to say when we went to school. You don't want that but at the same time. You don't want a situation where we're never gonna have any gifted and talented. Bright kids coming out of our schools in america to compete with the kids who are coming out of school from russia and china and just as an example of that. When i was in office. I tried to take four only four of the eighteen state universities and have specialized classes for engineers. Or you know really talented kids in the school and the legislature really gave me a hard time wouldn't do it. Thankfully governor andrew cuomo who succeeded. He was able to put that into effect What else is going on. In new york new yorkers should know about today's sending well. I think that there is still a. We're looking at the possibility of two new people. Running the city and the state Eric adams this week turned down three million dollars of campaign. donations so I guess he thinks he's going to win and Why we turn it down. Just keep keeping the clifford. He could just keep it in the for. But i guess this was sort of like a good government Idea that if you i mean. I don't know anybody really cares when he says it's good government. I i mean it's not even good government. It's kind of like charity. It goes back to the city. Maybe he feels he can use it for something else when he becomes mayor but it was a sort of noteworthy that he did that Courtesy with a republican candidate is traveling around the city but they car. That says curtis cares. He's got some commercials on where he shows himself talking to someone who disrupted one of his press conferences that was reno very effective so You know the the enrollment really favors atoms. And he's the likely winner but that race is still going on and then of course. We have governor kathy local who is hoping to stave off potential challengers and this week. She shut down. The governor's one point two billion dollar what they call the wrong way train That would operate out of queens. So and she also has completed her forty five days. And i was. I had thought of this. She had a forty five day grace period for herself to kind of decide who she wants to work with and who she doesn't and she has opened the gates and put a lot of the cuomo people who were enforcing the toxic atmosphere that existed there Out of the governor's office. And and so i would say that. She still gets high marks and she made an interesting comment on thursday when she said that some people couldn't get vaccinated because they were afraid to get on the subway because there's so many people on them that they're more dangerous that was a pretty brazen and strong comment. It's it's right but usually governors. Don't say that so I think she had a good week. Any notables that you make changes that we would know the names in the last week or something Press secretary who was in. The lieutenant governor's office moved to the governor's office with her. They've assigned that person to another agency. I don't remember that particular name. Larry schwartz who had been secretary to governor cuomo and myself is going to step down from his position as the on the Mta board and I think that just in the last period that those are the those are the notables. I understand there's a lot of rooms around that Governor cuomo may decide to run again to james's thinking about running so many. I mean giamatti williams mayor de blasio and he gut feelings. My gut feeling is if mayor de blasio thought he could get away with it he would run but he's gonna run into a lot of trouble because many of his campaign promises from twenty thirteen in twenty seventeen. We're not so filled But he did win democratic primaries there and if you win the democratic primary for governor you're very likely to become the next governor I i think that tissue. James and kathy hogan of both the same age if tisch james ever wants to be governor of the state of new york. The time to run would be now because it's not. She might wait eight more years. I and by that time she seventy years old. It'd be hard to run for governor at that griego and With governor cuomo. I think that he is going totally in the wrong direction. He still litigating case online. He's writing letters to different people. He's sending notes to Prominent people telling them who he thinks. They should support and certain races. So the idea that he was getting out of politics is certainly not there but i think when he needs is what they call a moment of reflection. Will you have to stop and think about what you did. And maybe what. You didn't do a best example of that. Were president george w bush. Who was you didn't hear him for two years after he left. And then he went on the oprah winfrey show and took tow responsibility for what happened in hurricane. Katrina and jimmy carter. Who's very quiet. After he left and then it's come back to a number of things now at ninety six years old still doing things and you just have to take some time and let what's happened you think in. I don't believe he's doing that. David paterson thank you for everything you've done for state only commonsense and reflect and continue to do that. God bless you. And god bless new york and god bless america. Thank you john Thank you so much listening in tomorrow when you go back on..

NYC today thank you very much for coming on thank you for having me can you clarify what domestic work is considered essential right now so yes domestic workers are providing essential work to keep our families and communities state conduct moment as you said earlier not that domestic workers only say domestic workers were talking about nannies house cleaners and home care workers and we know given in this pendant makes their working situation is very different so for nannies and house cleaners at shelters in place shelter in place orders went into effect there they lost their jobs and unemployment was very sudden and devastating some house cleaners got text messages saying don't come to work because of current affairs at the same time we are we know that we're hearing from home care workers across the country that overwhelming number of home care workers are still going to work to care for elderly people with chronic illnesses and so they are essential workers in that they cannot be hello working from home right now some ninety workers can and that they must still go to really care for the ones who are in need of their care so their sexual in so many different ways thanks regards Lee because they're not able to work from home and that there ought to have to go out and provide the care really at the frontline of responding to the current virus pandemic to ensure that all families and communities are N. I think we need to put right up front here the demographics of domestic work from what I've seen more than ninety percent women and disproportionately women of color many immigrants and disproportionately undocumented so can you talk a little bit more about the demographics and what that means in terms of the required response yes as you said that domestic work historically and currently across the country but also in New York City and New York state are largely women women of color vast majority of them are immigrant workers and a significant percent are undocumented immigrant workers who are working every day and growing our economy as we know it alas relief package called cares the centerpiece of bad relief package worth cash payment to provide immediate cash needs could those who are in need many working families across the country just like domestic workers lost their jobs but to me and we're experiencing is there are no jobs or under employee and that cash payment was providing twelve hundred dollars per person additional five hundred dollars per child all working families Congress when they passed that legislation intentionally harmed out many tax paying immigrants working families by requiring up putting two requirements one is that they have to be paying taxes in your twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen in addition requiring social security number of the practical effect of that is many undocumented immigrants but also next out of family meaning there somebody in that household who is a US citizen or legal per a green card holder we're going hard out of getting that actually need to cash in our system because it required a social security number let's take a phone call marsia in the Bronx you're on W. NYC hi marsia hi I'm intrusions I prepaid my hair cut I realized that the woman who does my because my daughter is a small business owner but very very much works on the on the edge and so I just sent her the money for whenever my next your credit so that she has the money now and I also employs somebody who comes into my apartment twice a month to clean this is a single woman who's raising children so I I continue to pay her marsia thank you very much and I think we have another story like that have a ara in Bergen county around W. M. I. C. hi are hi yes are you gaining lady who came to my house twice a month for about ten years but what I'm doing now I'm begging her sixty percent of Christianity but she doesn't have to constantly that I'm willing to go the four lines for for about a year or so that's that's a good long time of year to give her sixty percent of her salary I wonder and my guess is Hey young Yun senior director of policy at the national domestic workers alliance does the alliance have a recommended standard for people who've been employing house cleaners or nannies who they suddenly had to lay off due to a coronavirus concerns yes we would I disagree there's no mandate by the government because as you were saying that domestic workers are low wage workers without a safety net without job security and without peace or not eligible for paid sick days and paid leave in nineteen thirty and countries across the country so what we would encourage employers to do is continue to pay the workers through this pandemic right I think that is our gold standard because I think we all know that we will have we will at some point you to get out of this on target unprecedented public health and economic crisis and have to be on the path to economic recovery and I think paying domestic workers as well as other low wage workers their salaries and wages will make that recovery that much easier now listeners we're gonna clear a few lines because you know what's happening Hey young all the good hearted employees of the world are calling up to show that they don't like the previous two callers continuing to pay they're laid off domestic workers to varying degrees there may only be ten of these people in the country who are actually doing that but they're all calling the show right now so since we don't want to have the same story over and over again we're gonna we're gonna clear a few lines so listeners who are on hold please don't be insulted if we bump some of you because we want to get some domestic workers voices in here too so if you are a nanny if you are someone who's been cleaning other people's houses or your home health aide doing any kind of domestic work call up and talk about how your adjusting what has happened with you and what you think policy should be with respect to domestic workers who suddenly lost your incomes domestic workers six four six four three five seventy to eighty six four six four three five seventy to eighty now this week California governor Gavin Newsom made news when he said he's giving undocumented workers no matter what kind of work they were doing five hundred dollars because they were cut out of the federal stimulus package and in a press conference yesterday in New York the news organization the city there reporter Josefa Velasquez S. governor Cuomo if he would do the same here's how Cuomo responded when you are broke it would be irresponsible to do these things I do I hope and believe the federal government I should have a more inclusive policy by listing that there is no charge what we're looking at it but we have real financial problems right now.
