New York City Mayor Eric Adams has nominated a taxi chief from Washington D.C. to lead the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
On Thursday, Adams nominated David Do — the director of Washington’s Department of For-Hire Vehicles, to lead the commission, which regulates the tens of thousands of taxis and for-hire vehicles that operate across the five boroughs.
Do is very happy with his nomination, and he vowed to work hand in hand with Adams.
“Increased competition and the global pandemic have put our industry at a crossroads, and I look forward to partnering with Mayor Adams to deliver a strong economic recovery for our yellow and green taxi, livery, and for-hire industries,” Do, 34, said in a statement.
Sources said The City Council must confirm Do’s nomination.
The position became vacant after Deputy Mayor for Operations Meera Joshi resigned as head of the TLC in March 2019.
