amNY: Mayoral candidate Shaun Donovan unveils plan to bring 500,000 jobs to NYC

Former Obama administration official and mayoral candidate Shaun Donovan hopes to add half a million jobs to New York City over the next four years, if elected.

The former HUD secretary is the latest mayoral hopeful to release an ambitious economic recovery platform focused on bringing city employment back up to a pre-pandemic level.  

This week, Donovan released a 4,000-word economic recovery plan entitled, “A Jobs Plan that Rebuilds the Economy For All New Yorkers,” which offers an outline to rebuild the city’s tourism and nightlife industries by working “hand-in-hand” with industry partners and Business Improvement Districts, invest in arts and culture and launching campaigns targeting local, regional, international and business travelers. 

The mayoral wannabe also wants to boost the city’s life and science sector by creating a “free-standing,” research center in Upper Manhattan as well as a life and science hub in the Bronx offering job training as well as offer a “Grad-School-to-Enterprise” pathway to make it easier for life science PhD students to find work at university research centers.
