Business Leaders Speak Out After Sending Letter Calling On De Blasio To Fix Quality Of Life Issues

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In a stunning and unusual move, more than 150 top business leaders called on Mayor Bill de Blasio to take decisive actions to fix quality of life issues that they say jeopardize the city’s recovery.

Depending on how businesses use it, the verified calls feature could be enormously helpful, not just to let you know who’s calling (helping avoid spam calls), but also to make
