A political action committee (PAC) called A Better NY for All was created to advance the needs for small businesses and the growing concerns of public safety and is partnering with communities and organizations across New York City.
The City reported that Brooklyn businessperson Gil Cygler is the driving force behind the PAC and is raising $500,000 to fund ads to support the campaign of Eric Adams for mayor as well as a few other select candidates in the borough.
One of the organizations they are partnering with is Crown Heights United which is focused on voter turnout and that the community’s needs are addressed.
“A lot of small business people are being hurt by the leftward shift in the city and there has to be a better balance between the leftward shift, the need for reform, public safety and help for business,” said Cygler who ran a rental car company for many years.
With less than nine days to go before the mayoral primary, business leaders have divided the Democratic candidates for mayor into those they believe embrace that business is part of the solution to the city’s recovery from the pandemic recession — and those who do not, the City reported.
Crime has emerged as a crucial issue for business leaders, although keeping city tax bills level is not far behind, the website reported. Confidence in the candidates’ ability to run the city is also emerging as an important differentiator.
