Gale Brewer’s No-Nonsense Solutions for Manhattan

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer tells it like it is. Whether she’s advocating for more women in government, working with residents on rezoning, or acting as Mayor Bill de Blasio’s conscience, Brewer is one of the rare politicians who governs practically, not politically. Brewer stopped by the Slant podcast to talk about her reaction to de Blasio’s new plan for reducing congestion, the negative side effects of term limits in the City Council, and the importance of borough presidents. Brewer also explained why she – probably – won’t run for mayor in 2021.
