Each year, City & State publishes its Brooklyn Power 100 list. It’s a who’s who of movers and shakers, and as Brooklyn political power becomes ascendent, we’re honored to be in good company. They sum it up nicely:
“Brooklyn is beyond doubt a bastion of political clout. The new mayor of New York City is from the borough, so is the majority leader – at least for now – of the U.S. Senate and the heir apparent to the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. The borough is home to the state attorney general as well as New York City’s comptroller and public advocate. Brooklynites also chair the New York City Council’s Finance Committee and the Assembly’s Ways and Means Committee.’
We’re thrilled that they’ve chosen to recognize our founder and CEO, Joni Yoswein on their list.
“The former Brooklyn Assembly member was once best known for providing crucial guidance on behalf of borough-defining projects like Red Hook’s IKEA, Industry City, the Navy Yard’s Wegmans and the Domino Sugar development in Williamsburg. These days, Joni Yoswein continues to work with the borough’s leading real estate developers, including Two Trees, Related and Glenwood Management, as well as other borough powerhouses including the Brooklyn Public Library, SUNY Downstate, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and Brooklyn Defender Services.“
YNY as a firm is proud to have been recognized by City & State in their Top 50 NYC Lobbyists and Top 50 NYS Lobbyists lists. Joni was also included in the Power of Diversity: Women 100 list.
