Sadik-Khan Press Conference Coverage
New York 1 covers the Mayor’s announcement of New York City’s new transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan.
"No matter what you call it, environmentalism, sustainability or a
greener New York, we all want a healthier city for our families and
kids and it is that shared desire, it’s a necessity really, that brings
us together," said Sadik-Khan.
During the press conference, the mayor also spoke on his much-debated
plan for congestion pricing. Bloomberg says the public will get behind
the program once they understand its benefits.
"When you say that that there are a lot of people objecting, number
one, I don’t see it and number two, if they are it is only because you
are not explaining the great benefits that most of them will not pay
anything and get the value of all the revenues generated," he said.
