He informed The Post he plans to significantly take into account the supply over the Thanksgiving vacation weekend.

“I am very flattered that the mayor-elect would like me to help him in a big way to tackle the challenges in New York City,” Suozzi stated. “It’s a testament to our great friendship and his confidence that I know how to help run a big government, get things done and solve problems. Lots to think about over Thanksgiving.”

As a congressman, Suozzi earns $174,000. Deputy mayors make way more, together with First Deputy Dean Fuleihan, who earns $291,139.

Suozzi, a member of the House’s highly effective tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, can also be educated as a lawyer and licensed public accountant.
