Heard on the street: Engineers at the time with Hiram Monserrate who was than a city council person tried to put forth drafted law which City Council and mayor Mike Bloomberg rejected calling for a deputy mayor to over see and address infrastructure problems. The deputy mayor would also coordinate all the different NYC gov. depts including DEP and DOT, etc. but of course Mike Bloomberg said no.
Around the time I was writing Dan Doctoroff demanding he look in to infrastructure concerns because Bloomberg was pushing alarming community crushing development. Doctoroff had a woman from DEP emailing me referring me to DEP’s website and of course saying everything was alright.....

Doctoroff left shortly there after to go work in Bloomberg’s private empire.
When Doctoroff was confronted by a NYC engineer way back about the need for a deputy mayor for infrastructure Dan Doctoroff responded that he was the deputy mayor of
Dollar Bill Dan Doctoroff the deputy mayor of arrogance more like it.
