CITY HALL — CITY COUNCILMEMBER Lincoln Restler (D-Greenpoint, Brooklyn Heights) called Mayor Eric Adams’ announcement on Tuesday that he plans to create a Charter Revision Commission a “spurious” move doomed to failure, Politico reports. “This was a direct response to the City Council’s intention to subject more mayoral appointments to advice and consent,” Restler told Politico. “The mayor’s appointment of a spurious Charter Revision Commission that will have no substantial impact on city policy only delays the inevitable: The City Council is going to subject more mayoral appointments to advice and consent.”

Adams appointed a fellow Brooklynite, New York Building Congress President Carlo Scissura, to chair the Commission. Adams’ spokesperson Fabien Levy, however, declined to provide more specifics of what the administration would like to see changed in the charter and declined to share who else would serve on the commission.
