Van Bramer and Candidates Call on Speaker to Release Findings of Sexual Harassment Audit
Cuomo misconduct heightens need for hearings in the NYC Council on city policy
QUEENS, NY (03/29/2021) (readMedia)-- On Tuesday, City Council Members and candidates will call on Speaker Corey Johnson to release the findings of a sexual harassment audit from over two years ago. The group issued a letter to the Speaker today. Councilmember Van Bramer, who is running for Queens Borough President, organized the letter, which was signed by Tiffany Cabán, Moumita Ahmed, Elizabeth Adams, Carolyn Tran, Brad Lander, Sandy Nurse, Marti Allen-Cummings, Amanda Farias, Shahana Hanif, Brandon West and Chi Ossé.
The letters calls for the release of the audit findings, as well as hearings to determine how and if the Council needs to amend its sexual harassment policy. The mounting reports of misconduct by Governor Cuomo further underscore the need to affirmatively address workplace safety here in the City.
Van Bramer had been a leading voice against workplace abuse, calling on the Governor to resign as early as February 27th, and introducing the motion to expel former Council Member Andy King months before the Council ultimately did. Van Bramer has also introduced legislation to stop non-profit organizations from receiving city funds if they have been subject to multiple sexual harassment complaints.
