Council Members To Rally Against Cassano Re-hiring By FDNY

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro

New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Council Member Andy King, members of the City Council’s Black Latino and Asian Caucus and the Council’s Jewish Caucus, along with members of the Vulcan Society Inc., NAACP, and National Action Network will hold a press conference today at 12:30 p.m., on the steps of City Hall to denounce the FDNY’s hiring of Joseph Cassano.

Back in 2013, Cassano had quit his former FDNY job as an EMT after his hateful tweets against blacks, Jews and others were exposed. He is expected to report for his first day at the FDNY training academy today. Joseph Cassano is the son of former fire commissioner Sal Cassano.
