"Mohammed, Are you there? Yes, Yes. I'm here to apologize. That's okay. We got you now. My question is about Yeah. Yeah. Good morning, everyone. Hi, Mr Mayor. I really appreciate you guys you're doing Mohammed you're doing. I'm doing very well and you've done great and especially your child. Child care system will help a lot of people that I personally know. But my question is about the TLC and rebel that are, uh, the company Rebel who wanted to put 50 cars you know, in Manhattan electric cars. So the killer she just came out and ban all new licenses for electric cars. Me personally and my my friend. We're in the process of getting an electric car and and putting a license for hire. Vehicle license Start. I'm talking about But on the 22nd to Chelsea just came out and just start issuing those licenses. And if they're fighting with rebel Why should we be the victim? You know, because electric cars they're they're not only will be safe to drive. They are very, very low maintenance. And you know They They are cheaper to buy. Uh, you could get a used electric economy used test, for example, for around 20 $25,000. But if you want to buy a wheelchair accessible vehicle The transformation only alone $10,000. So If you guys are fighting with TLC is fighting with rebel. Why not just, um, come out with the new rules say okay, every drivers can get one license per year. The rebels will be forced to wait 50 years to put 50 cars and a few cars in Manhattan at the same time. Do you know we'll be able to just do our job. Because Right now, the only way to get a license for a new 400 vehicle. Is by buying either a minivan and transform it. Into a wheelchair accessible vehicle, which is a lot of money. But I want electric car because locals moment nous And it's good for the environment and Mohamed just want to make sure I understand your question. Clearly, you drive. While the city doesn't have a contract with rebel to put new cars on the road, you drive for another car service, and you just want to be able to buy an electric car. Uber and left, Mr Mayor. Well, Mohammed really important question. Um, and I'll just take a second to pull these pieces together a rebel the company has tried to defy the lives and rules of New York City. They're threatening to try and go it alone as uber used to love to do in different places in this country, and the law caught up with them. We do not allow a company to come in and dictate the terms to the public and the city government. So that's his own separate reality. We're addressing aggressively the bigger question I think you're raising about Should there be more electric cars on the streets for for hire vehicles? Ultimately, yes. But what we found was a problem, which is the way the rules were structured, led to the possibility of many, many new cars that happened to be electric cars on top of all the for hire vehicles We had already and what we realized in recent years is that Create a race to the bottom for working people for the drivers was driving down wages was causing a lot of drivers to circulate around with no pickups to attend to, and it created congestion problem and a problem for working people. And so we tightened up the number of available for hire vehicles. And that proved to be very effective. We don't want this to be a loophole that reopens at the wrong way. We do want more and more electric vehicles, and we're trying to figure out the way to balance the equation for the good of the earth, more electric vehicles, but not at the price of a lot more congestion and a lot more for hire vehicles. So over saturating the market. Plays Mohammad. Leave your information with the N Y C. I'll have the chair of the TLC. Uh, call you And talk to you about your particular situation. There may be more than one way to address this. So let's see what we can do to be helpful to you. But I do want to understand why we're trying to balance all those pieces in the way we make these rules. Mohammed, Hang on. We'll take your contact Info and Steve on Staten Island. You're on w N Y. C with the mayor. Hello, Steve. Good morning, Mr Mayor. I'm calling you about the, um, lifeguard shortage and the aquatics programs given by the Parks Department. I've been a swimmer in the lap swimming program for over 35 years. And the aquatics programs cover not only lap suing, but senior splash the Children's and adults learn to swim, adaptive swimming and you swim team. Uh, the lifeguard shortage has been an ongoing problem for many years, and it's just much worse this year. So one question would be is what the city going to do about this in the future. But in addition to that, the, um the aquatic specialists that teach those programs Have water safety instructor and Red Cross CPR. They are not being counted as lifeguards. And there is a section of the Department of Health regulations that would allow, um um fewer lifeguards. In those programs that is being ignored. It's 1 65.15. I can outline more of this, Uh To one of your persons off the air. Well, I appreciate that, and there's a real issue, Steve and please do give your information in NYC and we'll have a senior member of our team. Follow up with you. Um there is a life car shortage all over the country. We are doing a little better than other parts of the country, and that's why we can keep The core, you know, functions that really matter the beaches, the outdoor pools were able to keep them protected properly and on a huge number of people going to come out this year, of course to beaches and pools, as we recover from Covid. So the good news is we have the basics. But the tough part of the equation is exactly what you're referring to. We're not sure we can do all of the extra program when we normally would do if we had all the lifeguards would want We're still addressing that actually, New people are being hired and trained and coming online, So it is a good fluid situation in that way. But I'll have folks talk to you about what we can do to keep working on. And I think you make a really good point. Um, what can we do, going forward to try and avoid this problem in the future, so we don't have to worry about these swim programs are so valuable. We need enough lifeguards, So I think we need to think differently about how we do things going forward. Steve, Hang on. We'll take your information off the air. I have a budget question that I think you'll probably like and then one that you may not like as much. Um, thank you for warning me, the baby Bonds program as hopefully a blow against wealth disparity people who have heard the term baby bonds. The associated with Senator Cory Booker, who has a proposal like that at the federal level or as a form of reparations. So what is it in this New New York City budget? And how do you see it in the context of American history? Very quick to say I'm very proud of this because we have a a task force on racial inclusion and equity. In our city government. This is leaders of color in each of the city agencies who came together as our own collective. And their mandate was determine what we need to do right now to address the disparities that came up from Covid, and as we were coming up to Juneteenth, I said to the task force. Look, we want to do something important in the spirit of Juneteenth to invest. In communities that have been historically disadvantaged in so many ways. And this task force said. We want to do several things that we did CUNY scholarships and some other investments investments in mega ever Medgar Evers College, which is the one historically black college in New York City. But the real powerful goal they had was to make baby bonds universal in this city. And so we agreed that for every kindergarten child coming in September, everyone we will start Uh, savings account for their future for.

"In Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Day three of former President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial gets underway this afternoon. House managers, led by Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin spent yesterday laying out their case against Trump. They argued Trump incited insurrection at the U. S. Capitol building on January 62 weeks before he left office and did nothing to stop the violence once it's started. Here's NPR's Carrie Johnson. Raskin says Trump had a duty to protect and defend the country in the Congress. Instead, he primed people with lies about this election fraud, sent them to the capital to fight and blasted the vice president while the attack was underway. The House's case is that this was all foreseeable. Some of the people involved in this riot at the Capitol were previously involved in violent incidents. In Texas and elsewhere, Trump's lawyers begin presenting their case tomorrow. Trump is the only president to be impeached twice. He was acquitted in his first trial a year ago while still in office on charges related to Ukraine. U S Customs and Border Protection, says arrests of people crossing the border from Mexico illegally Rose 6% in January. That's compared to December.

E. O. of McKissick group Cheryl McKissick thank you Cheryl for being on the program and let me just say this rebel she goes to my church is one of mine I want you to know Cheryl right you to our site how it is not going to have you know so let me just as this are we going to see the completion of LaGuardia airport in our lifetime yes you will and that like to say I'm residual Saturday and you on Sunday a day now you know I had all over so and we're gonna see the completion of the B. Q. we in our lifetime the bank you I'm not working on what is your you were we haven't completed matter fact we're closer to completion then we are from starred so I'm glad you like what is the opening we did mention Columbia Columbia University Cup club university during the new work Manhattanville campus you see but you don't let's start we we talk about you know what it is to be a woman and heading up a company like this especially here in New York City but let's start about talk about the history which I'm aware of your your your your grandfather and the fact that this was the first black African American architectural firm in the country that's correct our family history goes back to seventeen ninety when the first descendant of our of family came here as a slave and was a slave to will give my kids a contractor who trust him to trade of making bricks that was two hundred and twenty nine years ago wow and he is my great great grand I do not have a great so I just left at his grandfather I am actually fifth generation a Moses McKissick the first his son Moses McKissick the second with a master carpenter he was known for his work on the Maxwell house hotel in Nashville Tennessee we're six presidents day well and then the company passed down to my grandfather and his brother who are the first black license architects in the country would license one seventeen and one eighteen in the state of Tennessee one is seventeen and one eighteen hello this license hanging in my office right on your own and have a new being a licensed architect is not easy the architects do not pass the test the first time they have three take part of the test but it's a very very challenging yes so for my grandfather and his brother Calvin McKissick they incorporated us in nineteen oh five but architectural licensing laws did not go into effect until nineteen twenty two so they would have lost their business if they did not pass architectural get their architectural license so they went to a correspondence school at in Muncie for architecture and then they showed up to get there to take their examine they were told we don't give this exam to blackmail so there were racial issues but it might also be overcame those issues right how did yeah really get around that well they lobbied the board and they found one board member who said just what the rabbi said we could let them take it but they won't pass but in fact they did pass and then the board so we definitely can't give license to black women but the one board member again we're back to the board and said well they this is fair competition here we have to actually give them their license but because they were the first black licensed architects in the country the state of Tennessee gained a lot of notoriety was the note newspapers and so the rest of the board now took credit of course you know I can help them to get licensed in twenty two other states it was tough for them to get work though did they have to clued you know locations to be part of the organization in order to get work no because this was BC for us segregation is so all black churches universities healthcare institutions all those clients were their clients I mean those owners would hire black architects to do their work in to do their construction so they worked all across the southeast all the way up to Atlantic city down to Miami Florida does then they weren't for Papa doc in Haiti in Haiti welcome you know I'm I'm listening to and I remember some time ago being met Marty Glickman and he was in the Olympics and Marty Glickman we travel around the country with Jesse Owens and very often they would come to a hotel in of the clerk behind the desk would say because he didn't know that with him was Jewish I would say wins since he was black you can stay here Anglican would save he can't stay here I can't stay here and to think that this was a you know a shameful chapter in our history the people were denied access simply on the basis of external quality the color it is something that you know we we just can't we can't erase it but we certainly have to make sure it never happens again that nobody should be denied an opportunity based upon color or religion right all of those things we have laws in place wishing you the enforcement of those laws today things have changed do you still see vestiges of that kind of racism in your work yes we speak very briefly on this program so it's okay and you know sometimes I wonder if it's really the same type of racism in some aspects it is so you will hear black firms don't perform as well you know they they cost more money you hear that from where give you that just these are in the industry in the industry there's a stigma attached to minority and even women owned firms that the quality of the work is not good because you know the professionals are good so I mean it goes all the way down the line it out that we're bad business people that you know we we get paid on payday and we spend everything coming so all these negative comments they add up and they are definitely racially based but then I believe that there is also the green card and that is you know just pure greed we don't want to share we want the whole pie and we don't want to share it with anyone not even someone that looks like us and so there's definitely a lot of that because we are in a capitalist economy here right but I was also just capacity not just that you may have bad business practices but H. question whether a black from has the capacity to take on some of these large projects which tend to only go in one direction right and we hear that all the time Merida Blasio just did a Daddy he hired a outside of consultant of course but it apparently the capacity in New York
