See below for the recent letter from NYSSPE President, Joe Pasaturo, PE to the Mayor-Elect of NYC. This was recently sent out to continue the communication around the threat and danger of illegal practices throughout the city.
Dear Mayor Adams,
Congratulations on your election as the next Mayor of New York City. It was a pleasure meeting you at Casa Belvedere earlier this year with my cousin Roy Ranieri. I am particularly happy that someone with your experience, qualifications, integrity and clear sense of purpose is in a position to provide the steady and inspiring leadership New York City needs and deserves.
I was born and raised in the South Bronx and well as the Pomonok houses in Queens. I am a lifelong New Yorker. I am the President of the New York State Society of Professional Engineers (NYSSPE). The society is a professional association representing the interest of its members, and more generally, the interest of all professional engineers totaling more than 25,000 licensees in New York State, practicing in all disciplines (civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, chemical, geological environmental, etc.) and practicing in all practice settings (private sector consulting, industry, government and education).
Professional Engineers, individually and communally, are keenly concerned with the promotion of public health, safety and welfare. Our members do not take lightly their responsibility to the greater community. It is our hope that in the years ahead we can work constructively with you to help move New York City to a brighter and safer future. [Read more…]
