With Lewis, de la Uz in the mix to advise de Blasio on housing (as per Crain's), does that set up tension regarding Atlantic Yards?
"Will they have a seat at the table?" said Bertha Lewis, head of the Black Institute and a longtime de Blasio ally, of all the competing interests. "I don't know how big the table is. Is there an inner table and an inner-inner table?"Will de la Uz get a place?
The article states:
Michelle de la Uz, executive director of the Fifth Avenue Committee and a de Blasio appointee to the City Planning Commission, and Shola Olatoye, vice president at Enterprise Community Partners, are both seen as possible choices to lead the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The candidate has said he wants to build or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing over 10 years.
